NaNoWriMo Tip #12: Keep Writing

By Dianna Dilworth 

You are halfway through the month and may feel your stamina beginning to lull. But keep going. Our tip today is: Keep Writing.

“What I try to do is write. I may write for two weeks ‘the cat sat on the mat, that is that, not a rat.’ And it might be just the most boring and awful stuff. But I try. When I am writing, I write,” renowned author Maya Angelou once said. “And then it’s as if the muse is convinced that I’m serious and says, ‘Okay. Okay. I’ll come now.'”

This is our 12th NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. To help GalleyCat readers take on the challenge of writing a draft for a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, we will be offering advice throughout the entire month.
