Never Give Up

Someone wrote in the forums over at NaNo yesterday, asking if she should give up because she is so far behind. Absolutely not! Never give up.

Are you sure you won’t meet your published goal? Write anyway. You can always revise the goal in your own mind, if it bothers you. I understand it is now too late to revise it over at camp.

So you don’t meet your goal. So what? At least you tried. You will never get anywhere if you don’t try. You may have to try 200 times before you succeed, but don’t give up. Never give up.

I’m not trying to be negative here. I’m just saying you can’t expect to succeed every time. Did you know it took Thomas Edison 1000 failures before he invented the light bulb? Where would we be if he had given up?

So, continue on. You never know when success is just around the corner.
