#NaNoWriMo2015-Get to the Heart of Your Story (writing tip #27)

If you're participating in NaNoWriMo2015 you might be feeling down to the wire--and maybe in need of the ROCKY theme song.

Today's reminder is to celebrate your small victories even as you set your sights on the gold ring!

For many of us it is easy to focus on all the things we didn't get done--while we overlook the myriad things we did.

So take a few minutes during your day to acknowledge the moments of kindness you shared with others, the words on the page however raw and rough they might be, the bill you paid, the errand you crossed off your list or the errand you ignored so you could get another page of your novel written--and the encouragement you shared with a friend or a stranger. Because when we encourage others to succeed, we all share a bit of their success.

Not one of us is perfect (thank goodness!) but we are all amazing!
