Yeah, I know.
It was news to me too.
I got started on NaNoWrimo with big dreams. I could write a little, so writing a lot would be no problem, right?
Just like going to the gym though, you need to put in the work every day. For me, the magic of writing DAILY (as opposed to whenever I felt like it) pushed me to the career I have today. It’s beautiful. It’s wonderful. It’s exactly where I want to be.
You just have to push through a little work to get there.
