Encouragement (& Laughs) for Writers

Happy Friday! This post comes in the midst of National Novel Writing Month, and I don’t know about you guys but as a writer I could really use some encouragement (and a few good laughs) right about now. I have been lagging in word counts almost since the beginning (the goal is to write approximately 1,667 words a day every day for the month of November) and as of now I am about 1,000 words behind. But I did meet my goal for today and before I write any more I’m taking a break, coming up for air and a little inspiration!

Enjoy, and may all your writing thrive!

P.S. Today is also Forum Friday, so for the sake of posing a question: What is your favorite bit of writing advice/encouragement?
