[Brandon] Hello, this is Brandon. I'm giving you a NaNoWriMo pep talk. This is week two of NaNoWriMo. You should be about at 15,000 words right now. If you're not, that's okay.
My pep talk for you is to just keep at it. All right? I did NaNoWriMo two years in a row before I got published. It was a wonderful experience for me. I think the thing I learned most from NaNoWriMo was consistency.
I would suggest to you, set a daily goal. Even if you're not thinking, "I can hit that 50,000!" Maybe you can't, maybe you can.
But if you're struggling, if you're having problems, set some sort of goal. Write some each day. A little bit, no matter how much it is.
If you can get on track with that, if you can start doing that, then eventually you'll start to pick it up and you'll keep going. You'll get more and more. I always find that I write more the end of the month, or the end of a project, than I do at the beginning.
So if you've got your 15,000, good job! Keep going!
If you haven't, try and set that goal. Just keep at it.
This is a special message from Writing Excuses. Go for it! Yay. From Brandon.
