We are Atlas: we not only dreamt up our story worlds, we are singlehandedly holding them up in the sky and breathing life into them. As writers, the weight of our story can sometimes bear us down as we struggle with finding a way to make sense of our narrative.
As our characters run rampant and have all kinds of ideas for what is happening, as our plot points diverge and refuse to come back together to be neatly tied off, as self doubt creeps in and rears its head when our first draft doesn’t look as polished as we’d secretly hoped: we set our shoulders, bear the weight and keep. it. high!
We are in the final stretch of NaNo now. For some exhaustion may be setting in, while others are celebrating their early victories. Remember: your story depends on you to hold it up; we can bear its weight & there is still time. Keep writing!
