This is for all those I already see fretting about NaNoWriMo on social media.

There's nothing to fear. It's just 50.000 words.

And I will be honest with you, some of those words WILL be bad. One year, I managed to write assistance or a variation thereof, five times in one line.

I know. It's awful.

BUT the thing I kept telling myself, and the thing that I still tell myself is this: I can edit out bad words later. First I need to tell myself the story.

So write drivel, write the most idiotic crap that will no doubt make you laugh like mad in the edits.

And get your words in. Quality comes after.
