NaNoWriMo: Victory is Nigh!

Category: Writing

 

Maybe that draft is nearing completion, or maybe not. Maybe you are feeling elated by your incredible achievement over the last month, or maybe you feel worn out. Either way the end is now in sight. So it’s time to wind down now, right? Wrong! 
This is the time to really show the world what you’re made of. If this was a Hollywood movie your completed first draft would have just caught fire, your arm would have been gnawed off by a wolf, your family would hate you, you’d have lost the woman/man you loved, and your nemesis would be laughing in your face. Yes you’d be tired, yes you would feel like giving up, but you are made of sterner stuff. Now is the time to turn things around. 
Following Chris Newton’s blog http://www.scottishbooktrust.com/blog/rewrite/2011/11/nanowrimo-music-to...  I would like to suggest the following tracks.
Don’t Give Up- Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel
Eye of the Tiger- Foreigner 
I Will Survive- Gloria Gaynor
The Show Must Go On- Queen
