This is around the time when NaNoWriMo looks harder than it is. It's tough for anyone to write so many words in such a small amount of time. Life throws a lot of curveballs. But just cause you get a curveball thrown at you, doesn't mean you can't hit the ball. You can do it. … Continue reading Keep going, writers
