THE ELEVATOR TO SUCCESS IS OUT OF ORDER.
YOU'LL HAVE TO USE THE STAIRS...
ONE STEP AT A TIME.
And let me tell you, that is one steep staircase.
I'm about halfway through Camp NaNoWriMo and I feel like I'm on one of those stair climber machines at the gym. I am going nowhere fast. Not even fast. It's more like I am going nowhere slow.
But you know what? It's not really "nowhere." I'm going somewhere - I am going farther and further into my novel. Each step is a word, a sentence, a character revelation, a plot twist. All of these steps might be part of a gigantic, winding, movable staircase with lots of landings but I know if I just keep going, one step at a time, I'll reach the top. Eventually. And I know, without a doubt, that the view from up there will be breathtaking.
Join me, won't you? We can yank each other up a flight or maybe give a strong shove from behind. Let's all just keep moving!
