For the month of November, you may see less of your friends as they participate in the annual event known as NaNoWriMo. Writers—veterans and newbies—vow to spend the month of November writing a book of 50,000 words. I’ve thought about participating before, but 50,000 words seemed so overwhelming. These past two years, however, have proven to me that nothing is overwhelming when you break it down into smaller bites. I have started my own business, began my blog, and I have even been speaking around the country about becoming socially active (a huge fear). By no means am I an expert, but with each opportunity, I become a little better. Each opportunity, I am building upon my dream. Now, I am beginning to fulfill another dream—writing books. If you are hesitant in moving forward with your dream or fulfilling your purpose, remember this famous Chinese proverb.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”—Lao-tzu
I decided to update Lao-tzu’s quote for NaNoWriMo.
“A journey of 50,000 words begins with a single character.”—Her Own Beat
Enjoy the journey!
