I started the 90 Day Novel Challenge a few months ago, and I paired it with Camp NaNo.
I wanted to review each step and finish it up with some great results. I wanted to say, “I have a novel, now. Huzzah!”

I also feel like if I start another novel that I’m giving up on the one I have completed. However, I know that I have to get over all of that and put the pen to paper (or fingers to keys more like!), so I bought myself a little motivational treat that I thought I would share with you.
