Now that we've completed the first week and have sailed into unfamiliar waters, you might notice that your brain is getting a little tired and your hands are starting to feel limp. From this moment on your novel might be starting to seem less glossy, your enthusiasm might go into its shell, and the drinks you are going to have might make you feel like drowning. These feelings are pretty typical of week two.
Now, the most important thing is that you keep writing. Slow or fast, every word will get you to where you want to be eventually. Another thing is to write regularly. Every day, if at all possible, even if it is just 50 words a day at times. The routine of writing daily will eventually settle in and get the juices flowing quicker and quicker. Don’t forget to do something else to give your brain a short break, once in a while. Brains need rest, so go pet a plotbunny on the M.L.S. P. Bunny, use a water suit made by captain IronAngel to take a relaxing walk on the bottom of the ocean or make a call home to let your friends and family know you are still alive. And then get yourself back into gear. Right now you might feel that a lifebuoy is needed, but soon you will be sailing to more calm writing waters.

If you haven’t yet taken it, the S.T.A.R.S. is still accepting student applications. If you’ve already filled out the form, students are sorted and added to their respective ships on Sundays. In the case that you took the assessment before Sunday and can’t find yourself, please contact your ML(s).
Also, the great Wrimoverse Crawl is up! It's here on the forums. Follow the links to explore the various ships in the MLS and get some great words in!
If you are in need of some word wars or just some company, the #wrimoverse chat is open 24/7. Every week we have a Wrimoverse Wednesday, so be sure to come to check it out.
Happy writing, Wrimos, and don’t be discouraged!
