Whoops, it’s that time of year again! Where we all rip out our hair in stress as we sit down and force ourselves to power through 50k words in 30 days. Why do we do this to ourselves again? For the experience, for the challenge, for the accountability, and for the confidence boost it gives if you can hash it out in time.
That said, remember to be kind to yourselves in this trying time. Don’t sweat the small stuff, don’t get fixated on the smaller details as you write, and definitely don’t bring yourself down if you can’t make it or fall behind. Writing something is better than writing nothing at all.
Just breathe. Keep going. You’ve got this.
