going to win. The challenge is still fun, and the spirit of NaNoWriMo is still very exciting for me, so I decided my participation was going to be worth doing on it’s own. This week I am trying to keep up with my own self care so that I am able to sustain my creativity throughout the length of my latest project.
In this #NaNoWriMo article we talk about some ways you can stay productive during the entire month of NaNoWriMo.
In this #PrepTober article I want to talk about 3 simple steps to optimizing the time you have without guilt and without losing your mind.

I spent a lot of the tail end of the week thinking about what I did well and why, so I could integrate that into my own process, and I’m going to share that process with you.
writing projects, my mental health, and give you an update on what’s happening. This is going to be a long, chatty blog post, so if you’re not into that, no worries, feel free to skip this week’s blog.
