NaNoWriMo Writing to be a Winner (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Are you a winner of NaNoWriMo?  The month of November is National Novel Writer’s Month where anyone can succeed by writing a 50,000 word novel.  Any novel, any 50,000 words.  Breaking writer’s block is about writing – getting words out of your head. And the winner is…you.

What does writing consist of?  Putting words to paper or digital media, canvas, walls, sidewalks, sand, or toilet stalls, right? (I’m not advocating defacing toilet walls; it’s just that there are some pithy poems written there.) Writing a blog is writing as is writing on pottery, cards, a cake, or a Tweet.

  • What does it mean to you to be a winner?
  • How does success feel?
  • When do you succeed and when don’t you?
  • What internal messages do you tell yourself to propel you forward?
  • When was the first time you enjoyed writing?

Reflect on one or more of these questions to spur your writing today.  Success can be writing for 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or until you feel complete.  Set the timer to write – Go!

And the winner is – You!

Congratulations to all who spent the time, energy, and allowed the words to flow.  My friend Katie is one who did.  She’s a winner.  Are you?

Are congratulations yours to accept for taking on the challenge and completing it?

If you complete a writing prompt today – you’re a winner to me.
