Monday Muddle: moot, mute

Monday Muddle: If you are speaking to, or writing for, an international audience, using the word “moot” might cause confusion. The meaning generally accepted in North America is basically the opposite of what is understood in the rest of the world. #MonMud

moot: (adj) hypothetical; (globally) debatable; (North America) not worth debating Used in the expression, "it’s a moot point". mute: (adj) speechless; unable to speak NOT used in the expression, "it’s a moot point".

Thursday Thought #JennieAllen

Thursday Thought: We all get discouraged sometimes, and sometimes for good reason. But sometimes we dwell on things that we cannot change, like what we did or did not do in the past. Instead, try to focus on the positive and what you can do better in the future.

If you are halfway through NaNo, but don’t have half your words yet, don’t give up. You can still do it.
