Yesterday I finished my 2000 words before I left Starbucks. Today I’ve got about 45 minutes left before I go pick up the kids, and I’m a little over 1000 words for the day. Some days the word flow, and some days I’m clawing my way to my word count. Such is the way of things. The key is to keep going, no matter what. A little pep talk to all you NaNo warriors out there. Not to mention a little pep talk for me!

Eileen Maksym studied philosophy at Yale and theology at Boston College, and now uses both to write science fiction. Currently she is an academic nomad, following her astrophysicist husband around the world, two kids in tow. When not writing or kid wrangling, Eileen is a hopeless fangirl. She can be found on Twitter (@eileenmaksym) squeeing over her favorite shows, most of which involve famous detectives, dashing time travelers, and creatures that are never, ever referred to as zombies.
