NaNoWriMo Weekend 3 (Day 17-18)

Yes, this is day 19 in Europe. But I wrote my behind off this weekend trying to catch up for what I didn’t while being restless from my new job. (I still need to grow some muscles). But, thanks to how my boyfriend decided to mess up with my drafting software and raise my word count goal from 3,000 to 4,500 (which he made the math and said that’s how much I need per day), I DID IT! I managed my 35,000 3rd weekend goal! I’m not as ahead as in the beginning (finishing on Nov 24) but I am still ahead! Not for long, considering I have to work tomorrow and weekend. So that leaves me today and Wednesday to write about 5,000 words and then the last week two days to finish NaNoWriMo on time. Goooo me!

I wanted to share now this video with you, I guess it applies a lot to all of us who pursue our creative dreams of living a life of creation no matter the path. For those who don’t know him by his name, he wrote some of my favorite stories such as Coraline and Stardust. I find it amazing how Coraline, was originally a mistake, a great mistake he made with her name.

Inspirational Speech for those who pursue a life in creativity.

“So be wise, because the world needs more wisdom, and if you cannot be wise, pretend to be someone who is wise, and then just behave like they would.
And now go, and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art.”
