Just spent the morning checking up on all my various sites about the process of writing, including updating my author website (visit: www.spunkyheroine.net) and signing up for Camp NaNoWriMo. I’ve done the traditional November “NaNo” and have yet to achieve a 50,000 word count. I know I have 50,000 words within me (and then some), I just don’t know if I can get them out in 31 days. Still, I persevere. I may not have a sword to keep bright, Mr. Shakespeare, but like you I have a pen — and I know how to use it!

I feel good about writing this weekend. I finished a short piece of fiction that I’d been working on for a month, plus a significant section of my current novel. I still will have a lot of polishing to do once it’s complete, but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I need to keep in mind not to be overwhelmed by the entire storyline. Every day I must work away in a journeyman fashion… one word, one paragraph, one chapter, one day at a time. I’ll get there if I just continue to persevere.
