Since November is both holiday-heavy and NaNoWriMo, I will not be posting anything longer than a few sentences of vague encouragement. That said, make some space for yourself today. Get your writing done. And build up that buffer. The biggest hurdle for me is the week of Thanksgiving, when travel and family time mean I rarely get any space to write.

Also, and this can’t be stated enough, vote tomorrow. Vote hard, vote your morals, vote for the future and for those who cannot. It is your duty as a citizen to vote if you are able. (Clearly this message is for the American readers, but if you have an election in your country coming up, you can apply it just as well!)
