NaNoWriMo 2021! Day 25/Day 9

Advice: Build a support system. Everything is better when you have a community. NaNoWriMo is a crazy undertaking and others participating with you will certainly help encourage you to keep going. Everyone here on 1_million_words is great at the support end, and it helps. If you need more, team up with other writers on the NaNo site. Find writers groups on Facebook or anywhere else you hang. Go to write-ins (virtual or in person). The more people you have in your corner, especially those making this journey with you, will help make success that much easier for you to reach.

Prompt: Go to and use the daily featured article to inspire your next plot point.

Monday came and went.

Sorry folks, I missed Monday completely! And I am dashing in on the last few minutes of lunch break to post a few reminders for you, so this won't contain links. I do love you. I swear.

Big Buddy: At this moment you should be at 30% of your month. How are you doing.

Flash Challenge: "Do you think it's gonna be that simple?"

Swap of Joy: Sign ups are still open through the 18th. Go on over and get yourself some Joy!

Aaaaaand I don't remember what else I'm missing and now I'm late getting back to the work they pay me to do.

Happy This Week to you all!
