Do ya’ll realize how close NaNoWriMo is? Huh? Huh?
NO, DON’T TELL ME HOW MANY MORE DAYS. I COULDN’T HANDLE IT!!! *wails*
Okay. But seriously. NaNoWriMo is just around the corner (*whimpers*) and I’m beginning to feel like I am doomed.
Alright, yes, I admit, I’ve been feeling this way for a long time. BUT NOW IT’S REALLY KICKING IN!!!
Let’s take a look at what I’ve done so far in preparation for this dreaded -yet, anticipated – writing challenge:
1. I have gone through depression, being brain dead, and feeling completely uninspired.
“YEAH, I’M SO PREPARED!!!” She said sarcastically… XD
2. Inspiration has struck – Plotting accomplished!
3. Characters have been created – Character Worksheets complete!
Ugh. This took foreeeeevvveeerrr…. And I still need to think of last names which is super hard!! *cries*
4. Typed up extra little facts and tidbits on the computer – WAIT IS THAT A PLOT HOLE?!?!
I have a few plot holes that I need to work on…. And I really don’t want to… And I need to do research, too and – well – that brings me to my 5th step….
Mmmmm hmmmm…. Lots and lots of procrastination…. *smiles innocently*
Now for the final step….
6. Self doubt.
*stares blankly at screen* *whimpers* *sobs*
HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WRITE 25,000 WORDS DURING THE BUSIEST MONTH OF THE YEAR?!?!
I have my dad’s birthday, my brother moving, a craft fair that I really need to prepare for, Thanksgiving, the craft fair itself, and I’m gonna be redoing my room!
Last year, I didn’t even reach 6,000 words, guys. There’s just – there’s just no way.
BUT I HAVE TO DO IT! SOMEHOW!
So here’s what I’m going to do.
I’m going to start preparing for the craft fair now.
I’m going to create a plot board for the book that I can refer to.
I’m going to create a well-balanced schedule to make sure I have enough time to write and do the other things I need to do throughout the day.
And I’m going to hang on to hope and try to believe in myself. NaNoWriMo feels impossible to me, but I want to do it. I want to make this work.
So tell me, are you doing NaNoWriMo? Are you going through doubts? What will you do to make sure you meet your goal?
I’m probably going to host some Word Wars on here during November… do you think I should?
Best of luck, my writing friends. We can pull through this together!! 😀
