The last post by Kate Elliot gave me a lot of peace when I was struggling with what I was writing. Everything I write is weird and I was worried about it ever selling. I was so worried about everything I was working on that I almost stopped writing things that I loved in favor of things I thought would be more popular. After I saw the post by Kate Elliot, I decided I was going to stick with what I wanted to write. I now keep a post-it note with that saying by my computer.

And if those weren’t enough, here is a link to the list of 2014 NaNoWriMo pep talks
