We’re focusing on inspiration and motivation in this week’s roundup – so while there are certainly useful tips to be found within, be ready for a heartfelt blast of get-up-and-go. Today, dive into:

  • An article from Bustle that presents some exceedingly timely advice from author John Green – that sometimes, even when it feels like it, not all is lost when your story isn’t working out.
  • A moving article at Nerdy Book Club, written by NaNoWriMo’s own Grant Faulker, entitled Why Writing Novels Matters. This one’s a thoroughly inspiring read if you happen to have children whom you’d love to tune into the world of writing.

If you missed it, don’t forget to check out our interview with Grant, where he discusses the origins of his own love for writing, the path he took toward becoming executive director of NaNoWriMo, his favorite productivity tips, and his future plans on and off the page.

That’s it for this week. Enjoy!
