Wordy Wednesday: A MSA Post

Happy Wednesday.
I am just past the midway point of National Novel Writing Month. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write a short novel (50,000 words) in 30 days. The idea behind it is to just purge all of the words out. You just quiet your inner censor/editor and get everything on the page. Then you go back and edit once the month is up. It is an interesting way to work. And it is also difficult. Our natural tendency is to correct/edit as we go. I saw this quote and thought that it was quite fitting... maybe not exactly for NaNoWriMo, but for other things.
This quote fits for both writers and scrapbookers. As a scrapbooker, you live life and then edit it into bite-size memories. Sometimes we even live life in a certain way to capture a photo or moment. But don't spend so much time editing that you forget to fully live your story!

What will your story be?
