November is done, passed, over, that ship has sailed! You can now take a break and catch up on all the chores you neglected throughout the month. Scrub the decks, call your family and let them know you’re not dead, hug your pets and friends. No matter what your final word count was when you validated at midnight, you’ve won.
Your final word count isn’t what determines if you’ve won or lost (though we do admit that the certificate is kind of cool.) What matters is that you’ve developed a writing habit, whether you measure it in words or minutes written each day. You’ve started your novel (and maybe finished it) and not given up on a story in need of being told. So allow yourself to take a short break to recover, and then maintain that writing habit. Continue making a few minutes every day, or a few hours each week, to work on your writing. Write new words, or edit and polish old ones, but don’t stop writing. The way to get better at writing is to write even more. Try new things, but write.
The last pieces of the Wrimoverse adventure have been posted so hop on over to the site and read theCaptains’ Log.
The ship cup winner has also beenannounced! Congratulations to the MLS P. Bunny!
But special shoutout to the Shovel crew who in the last week valiantly and diligently worked their way to second place, and almost, nearly won. It was just a 5 point difference, the closest race we’ve seen in all the years of the Academy. Many kudos to you.
