I think the worst lies of all, are the ones we tell ourselves. “I was only joking”.. “I didn’t mean to say that”.. “it’s not really hurting anyone”.. “I can write 50,000 words in one month, when I’ve never done it before.”
Yup.. you heard it right. NaNo is over at the end of today and I didn’t even come close.
I’ve given myself the pep talk about how it was only my first time. That, what was important, was that I made time to write at all. I’ve had the pats on the back and been told that I did great for trying and not to let it get to me.
The truth is though, I feel like a failure. I think I could have done better. Maybe. Possibly. Probably not. *sigh*
You know what they say right?
There is always next year…
