This is my favorite painting. Wanderer above the Sea of Fog by Caspar David Friedrich. How can this inspire you with your writing? Well… when writing, and especially when writing in such special conditions, such as the ones demanded by NaNoWriMo, it must feel at times that you don’t know what you’re doing. You’re lost… you don’t know if there’s a destination to be reached anymore.
The thing is that… being lost isn’t so bad. After all, no matter how many maps and compasses we own, how many plans we make, in the end, we’re still facing a big, misty unknown. We never know what’s going to happen. So my advice is simply this: if you don’t know where your story is headed, don’t worry. Keep on writing, you never know what you might find.
