Home Stretch!

Y’all, November has been a whirlwind! I can’t believe it’s almost over!

Between working with my 2 year olds at the Preschool, homeschooling my own 3 girls (Algebra is hard guys 😳), and running said girls back and forth to dance classes five days a week, I can honestly say I’m surprised I have gotten any writing done at all.

So when I updated my word count last night and realized I have less than 12,000 words to go, I did a little happy dance! It’s such a rush to see that little bar moving closer and closer to the 50,000 word finish line.

It hasn’t been easy and there might have been a little complaining. 🙄

A friend overheard me saying I was ready for this month to be done and asked me why I even do this challenge. Why “torture” myself? There’s no physical prize to be earned. I’m not getting paid.

I’m sure for many people it may seem silly to put unnecessary pressure on themselves to complete a challenge with no visible reward.

However, when I reach that 50,000 word goal, there is a certain sense of accomplishment; a sense of pride and satisfaction. There is the knowledge that if I put my mind to something and work hard, I can achieve amazing results.

For just one moment, I even believe I could fly if I wanted to.

And that’s why I NaNoWriMo. 😉

    We all have a personal endeavor to conquer. I’d love to go hike a trail in the mountains that’s 77 miles long. Some people might think that’s crazy but I want to. So your writing is not different.

    But algebra is an evil that nobody should have ever figured out. And I think those people were crazy 😝😁

    1. I think that’s an awesome goal!! Are you going to attempt it? Thank you for your encouragement, as always!

      I agree with you on Algebra! Fortunately I am finding it easier to understand as I relearn it with my girls than I ever did in high school! 😂

        I hope to at least most of it. It can be broken up into increments. And I thoroughly enjoy encouraging you!

        I was in pre algebra… made little to no sense to me. But it’s awesome you’re learning with your girls!
