In keeping with the traditions of the NaNoWriMo season, I’ve a quote for you that can be applied to the herculean task of writing 50,000 words in one month… or, more generally – to life. 🙂
“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S. Lewis
There will always be things you can’t change – and the past ranks at the top of the list. Perhaps somewhere near the bottom are changes to your novel, if you want to even ATTEMPT to finish the first draft in one month (I know – you can tell where my focus truly lies this month. At least I’m not whining yet about how far behind I am on my word count and if I’ll ever be able to finish this thing)…
…either way, the advice is the same – make changes now and shape the path forward. That’s all you can do.
And remember that very few things in our future are carved in stone – and even if you think they are, you can always get out a chisel… or a new rock. 😉
