NaNoWriMo Thoughts: To Love or to Hate Writing

I’ve got a few things to talk about in today’s post. We’ll chat about determination vs motivation, seasonal writing, age categories, and doubt, but they all kind of neatly tie in together, so rather than writing separate posts, here we are with a mishmash! First, The Orangutan Librarian wrote a super relatable post recently about…
