Letters to Myself: Sappy about NaNo

Today, continuing the NaNoWriMo theme for the month, we present a sappy version of Letters to Myself, remembered last year in a particularly nostalgic moment:

Remembered October 20, 2017, in response to:NaNoSappy

I wrote:

Dear Eighteen,

Oh love, if only you knew what you were getting yourself into. It’s a bit sappy, true, but I would be lying if I told you that NaNo wouldn’t change your life. Literally– not only through writing practice, but personal growth, a sense of belonging, leadership skills, and some of the best friends you’ve ever made.

Buckle up. Soldier forth. Look November 2nd in the eye and know that, six years later, you still haven’t turned back yet.


Still true, even as I lay here dying of word count death.
