There are a lot of people chiming in on Nanowrimo.
You should do it.
You shouldn’t do it.
If you do it, you’re a success.
If you do it, you still aren’t really a writer.
Why are you doing it?
What do you think you’ll accomplish?
You gain nothing by doing it.
What are you going to do with it once you’re done?
… And the list goes on.
Here’s the thing… if you want to do it, just fucking do it and have fun. Don’t let anyone tell you how to spend your time or your energy. If Nanowrimo is a goal you’ve set for yourself…to make that word count… to write that story… and I’m going to be the first one in line to cheer you on.
Because it’s YOUR want. YOUR desire. YOUR goal.
So you go do that thing. And do your best. Be the best fucking you that you can be.
And if you don’t make it, do it again next year or next month if you want to. We all have dreams. Big dreams. Little dreams. And every size in between.
Regardless of the size, it’s still a dream. You can do this. Have faith. And chocolate. Never underestimate a nice handful of chocolate.
TL;DR: Fuck people who tell you that you’re not worth your own time and desires. Eat chocolate.
