- Remember why you signed up for camp.
Take some time to think about this or even write out your goals on paper.
- Remember these are just numbers.
- It is the amount of words you have written that is falling behind the recommended daily allowance, NOT you. You are NOT below-average – you were BRAVE enough to sign up for camp!
- Ask yourself WHY? What reasons do you have for not typing 1667 words a day?
If you were busy with life (especially if you were enjoying it – then forgive yourself.)
If you have spent the day in PJ’s watching bad TV, staring at a laptop that’s not even powered up – then forgive yourself!
Yes, you heard me.
FORGIVE & Forget
If you don’t forgive yourself you will hold onto this lack of words, you will label it a failure and that epic fail will set the tone for your camp.
Get out the marsh-mellows, toast some and TOAST yourself – ‘Here’s to tomorrow when I will try to write the suggested word count.’
The whole idea behind NaNoWriMo is to promote writing and get people writing.
Happy writing x
