I have finally reached the infamous pivotal point where you have to decide between ignoring your inner voice and go all out for the glory or give in to its constant rambling voice, “hey you gave it your all but you just can’t do it so why not throw in the towel now and relax.”
What my inner voice fails to understand is that I am The Unknown Author and whether I win or lose the challenge I still come out victorious. Because you see in a challenge such as NaNoWrimo it is more about the outcome of the experience than whether or not you hit the 50K mark by midnight November 30.
For The Unknown Author it has been a personal journey to take that step outside their comfort zone, a challenge to their everyday strengths and a spark to fire up their imagination. It is amazing what you can accomplish in a short period of time when you focus on the “What if” rather than the “Why bother” mentality. Have you ever been challenged to step outside your comfort zone? If so, what lessons and achievements did you accomplish in your journey?
Now The Unknown Author still has plenty of time to continue throwing caution into the wind and go for the gusto so stay tuned to see how far along they get in their NaNoWrimo journey and then share in their lessons learned (once they have rested and got caught up on their other WIP’s: what is a WIP? Work in Progress)
Until next time,
Keep on thriving, keep on striving and keep on writing!
The Unknown Author
