Last year, I wrote out little sticky notes and stuck them over my work station to help me stay powered. I had 2 book quotes, 2 movie quotes, and 2 song quotes. At each stage of the process I came up with something to fit it that fueled me more. My first (and possibly favorite) is this one:

“You be all you can be.” – The Journey, by Kathryn Lasky

It reminded me to give this story my all, to be all I could be, and to make the story be all it could be.

“If they’re pitching fast, choke up!” – Dandelion Fire, by N. D. Wilson

I love this, even though I don’t have a clue about baseball stuff (though he makes it clear what he’s meaning in the book šŸ™‚ ). And when you’re doing NaNoWriMo, they’re always pitching fast.

Keep it up, guys! Let’s push through the week 2 blues and get on to week 3! Almost halfway there (sort of…)! šŸ˜€
