This is the second event that I have done with NaNoWriMo and unfortunately I have yet to meet my goal. But today I realized that it’s not about the goal. Thanks to you (and the fact that I put both NaNoWriMo and Camp NNWM in my bookmarks bar constantly reminding that you exist), I have been inspired to push forth with an idea that has been in my head for so many years.
I write a little bit each day, plugging away at something that means so much to me and making it real. With every word that gets put onto paper (whether tangible or on the computer screen), I feel a sense of accomplishment that I have been seeking since my I started dreaming of becoming a writer. I feel myself becoming more and more confident to let the world know the stories and worlds that I’ve kept to myself for so long.
I feel like I’m being a bit repetative at this point, so I’ll end with this: thank you. Thank you for helping me find my voice, for being supportive of a silly girl’s dreams, and for somehow being the right kick in the pants that I needed.
