Have you written?
I haven’t. But I have eaten Skittles. And Reeses Pieces. And a very small Heath bar.
Yesterday I put a water bottle in my hair and I felt very amazing. But I didn’t write.
But I am going to write today because it’s a new day.
And then I’m going to write tomorrow.
And even the next day.
I’m going to write every day in November (except Sunday Funday) and if I finish a novel, I’m going to buy myself something very fancy. Like tapioca pudding. And I might go to a movie. I might sneak tapioca pudding into a movie. And eat it.
What will you do if you finish a novel?
Dessert and the cinema?
One thing to remember: You can do this. It’s up to you and only you.
Another thing to remember: It’s okay if it’s bad.
And a final thing to remember: Writing every day on the same project, even if you think it’s bad and not going anywhere, will make you better. It will make you think hard, it will help you create good habits, it will teach you things you didn’t know you needed to know, and most of all, it will show you that can do something really really hard.
And you’ll get tapioca at the end. The best food that my mom used to make which I haven’t eaten for years and which I hope to eat in 30 days.
