The Tales of November come calling

They call this National Novel Writing Month, and thousands of people will be sitting down over the next 30 days to chase a dream.

If you are one of those thousands, remember:

You can do this.

You’ve always wanted to do this, and there’s no time like this time, when so many people are in the game with you.

I was going to say “so many people are in the fight with you,”

but fights are struggles, and you’re tired of struggling.

You want to have fun, and games are fun, so let’s call this a game.

Remember to have fun!

If you stop having fun, step away, take a rest, and get back in the game.

Have fun!

Meanwhile, if you’re sharing a home or a friendship with one of the players, remember:

They can do this on their own, but it’s more fun if you believe with them.

They are their own worst critic. What they need to hear from you most is:

You can do this.

Happy NaNoWriMo!
