End of the Line
It's the end of the line. You can see it ahead of you, as can I. The flashing red lights screaming for you to stop. The wheels beneath you, complaining of exhaustion.
It's been a long road. Track. Whatever. What are you going to do when you get to the end? To the place where the tracks just... stop?
Is your story going to be done? Are you going to burn it? Are you going to perfect and send it off for publishing, or perfect and format and self publish? What is YOUR plan?
And if you met your personal goals, NaNo or no NaNo, how do you plan to reward yourself? This was hard work. Don't fool yourself or let anyone else tell you otherwise. You DESERVE a reward. For giving it a shot. For doing your best. For giving it everything you had to give, and then some.
I say we build on. Keep on creating. Put one rail in front of the next and keep on moving. This may be the end of this draft. But there's still work to be done. I certainly am not done, myself! Are you up for the task? Are you with me?
Just a few days left until we're there. Let's get there, and show NaNo we don't have to write ONLY in November. Let's thank November for its time, and keep right on going.
We are writers. Let's deafen the world with our roar!
