You Did SOME writing, right?

             
       It is important for all of us to remember, that most of did a lot
       more writing than we ordinarily would have during the July
       NaNoWriMo. I know I did. And given the way this summer was
       going, I would have done even less, I am sure.
      
       This way, I have 30,000 words under my belt towards my novel
       and I may possibly have another 15,000 more words by the end of
       the month which is great, given the fact that I have a better plot
       after my revising it.
      
       I think it is important for us, as writers, to reward ourselves and
       complement ourselves for ALL of our successes, be they small or
       large. We have to realize that we are doing as well as we can be
       under the circumstances. To constantly berate yourself and to beat
       yourself up only creates low self-esteem for writers.
      
       So, sit down with a sheet of paper or your journal and list all of
       the things that you DID do this month. Did you send a few articles
       out? Did you start a larger project or two? Did you read some
       interesting books? Did you meet someone on line who will
       motivate you to excel and to be the best that you can be?
      
       If you answered any of these questions in the affirmative, you
       had a good month. And next week, you will usher a new month
       and new writing plans. So, don’t fret but enjoy yourself as a
       writer.
      
       ~ Happy Writing!
