A Mid-NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) Pep Talk from the Hulk!
WRITERS WRITE! HULK SAY "KEEP GOING!"
The Other Guy has a simple but powerful point here. Writers write, and if you want to be a writer, that's what you have to do, even when you feel weary or uninspired.
NANOWRIMO NOT HALF OVER! NANOWRIMO HALF FULL!
While this point makes no grammatical sense, Hulk's optimism is worth embracing. It's mid-November - and thus mid-NaNoWriMo - but don't dwell on the writing time that has gone by. Instead, think of all the time you have left for one big push toward completion of that manuscript.
PEOPLE LOVE BOOKS! YOU WRITE BOOK! YOU MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY!
You're writing a book - and that's an awesome undertaking. Someday somebody's going to read that book, and the words you wrote today may well indeed make them happy - or sad, or angry, or frightened -because words have power. And as you write, you wield that power just as surely as Thor does that hammer of his.
Believe in your power. Believe in your words. And believe in yourself.
HULK SMASH DOUBT! GET BACK TO WRITING!
Hulk's right. Leave the self-doubt behind. Every writer feels it, but the ones who complete their manuscripts and move the world with their words manage to put that doubt aside. And you can, too.
Hulk and I believe in you.
And we can't wait to read what you're writing!
