My Greatest Cheerleader


Blogging, HWMMS, Personal, Writing / Thursday, November 14th, 2013

SPOILER ALERT: Ok guys and gals this is one where I get cheezy, you’ve been warned.

Last night as I was finishing off the last words in NaNoWriMo world He Who Makes Me Smile came up behind me on the computer and asked how I was doing. I hid the post I just wrote, embarrassed to share the fluffy nothing on the screen and flipped over to the NaNoWriMo main page, the one with the graph.

I tell him my stats. And how far behind I am. He looks at the graph and says in his playful, ever-supporting way “you have to get writing, you’re never gonna make it!” And then he traces his line up the graph and ends at the 30,000 word mark and then falls off the cliff into the abyss. The way he said it was not mean, but rather funny. And true. When I showed him the stagnant days where I didn’t write at all, or barely he just basically told me no excuses. And get on it.

So this morning I get up and leave to meet up with a friend and when I get home He Who Makes Me Smile says “you’ve been blogging like a fiend. I like it. Keep it up!” Guess he took sometime to catch up over at All Things Jennifer.

Seriously, having this man in my corner no matter what crazy goal I have in mind has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. I don’t quite know what I did to deserve someone who puts up with the crazy…but I’m ever so happy and constantly smiling because of him.

Thank you love, for keeping me on my many tracks of all the roads less traveled. Time to catch up with that goal.

Whatcha talkin' bout Willis?
