Yes, we are halfway through NaNoWriMo. Hopefully we are all reaching our goals. It’s okay if we’re not. The important thing is to keep writing. Especially in light of the events in France. While we are all concerned and possibly scared, we need to use our creativity as a way to deal with it. Focus your emotions and channel them into your writing. The writing can also be an escape from the fear. However you process it, try to keep writing.
