Participant Pep Talk from Lily

Hello writer!

I heard you want to write a novel. That’s great! All you need is time and effort. Willing to put in the effort but feel too busy? That’s ok. You can either write when you do have free time or clear unimportant things from your schedule to make time. Have time but can’t focus due to people being really loud? That’s ok too! Just ask them to be quieter.

Anyone can write a novel but not everyone is willing to make it happen. And since you’re writing one, you are part of that category of go-getters. You can do this! I’m always here if you need to talk about your novel. If you don’t finish by the end of April, that’s ok. You can still work on it afterwards.

Speaking of not finishing, you never need to rush. You can try if you want but you don’t have to. Even if you feel like you can’t work on it at the moment, you can always use your free time.

Or not. It’s all up to you. You have the power to create something beautiful. I recommend you use it to create wonderful stories. Oh, I’m blabbering again.

All in all, don’t give up. You have several people who support you and love your work. You don’t have to finish it if you feel you can’t. I hope you do though because I would love to read it. If I repeated anything, that’s because it’s very important. You can do this! We’re all here for you and can answer any questions you have. The mods especially can help because they are the ones in charge and can tell you what’s allowed and what’s not. They are also amazing people and will give you lots of encouragement if you need it!

If you still need help, try looking for people who are writing the same genre as you and asking them. For example, if I needed help, I would ask my friends who are currently writing fanfics. That way, I get the best answers. I promise you it will work.

Well…now that I discussed that, I don’t know how to finish this off. Guess writer’s block took me over as I was typing this. I hope you have better luck than I do. Until the next time we see each other, may the force be with you and good luck.
