How’s everyone doing? Did you hit 10,000 words yesterday? Congratulations! That’s a huge landmark. And you’re 20% of the way done!
What’s that? Didn’t quite make it? It’s okay. There’s a weekend coming up, and you can make up some lost ground. Just keep plugging away, one word at a time. I don’t really have much more to say–just keep working. Find a way to keep conflict going and growing, make sure your characters are pushing the plot forward, and make sure there are surprises and mysteries to keep the readers turning the pages.
But even I realize that this isn’t much of a pep talk. So maybe this will help during those tough times.
