Dear Christian Indies,
Sometimes we set a goal and begin to work toward it, only to discover the journey from start to completion is wrought with more trouble than we’d bargained for.
When this happens, we often seek counsel from others. We are looking for perhaps a bit of external motivation, a reason to keep pushing forward even though things have gotten really, really tough.
Our well meaning support system is always there, and if not, we can certainly find lots of life-coaching and other similar encouragement from social media and other sources. These advisors are always quick to encourage us to keep fighting. We are told things like, “never give up,” and, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”
Sometimes, this sort of talk is just the sort of thing we need to get us through, over, or around the current obstacle, and get us back on track for the accomplishment of our goals.
Sometimes, however, this sort of talk leads to a feeling of condemnation.
Sometimes, no matter how many times you hear, “you can do it,” the truth is, you likely cannot.
Maybe your November ended up full of more obligations/commitments than you expected. Maybe you’ve fallen ill. Maybe you’ve simply been so paralyzed with writers’ block that you find yourself twelve days into the challenge with zero words written.
Maybe you’re not asking anyone for encouragement to keep going, but instead you’re looking to answer the question, “should I quit NaNoWriMo?”
If that’s the predicament you find yourself in, we’re here to help.
It’s an episode you won’t want to miss.
See you there,
