I just got insanely nervous…. this is not going to go well. I still have to finish my buddhism essay… and my soc paper.. adn read the iliad … and write some stupid training plan.. and a bonus assignment on goodness knows… crap.
And that’s why I love NaNoWriMo. It gets you started. It gives you the impetus to finally start, and/or finally finish. Knowing there are thousands of others out there trying to do the same, who are using this ridiculous deadline as cattle-prod and shame deterrent, means goddamnit, you better do it now because you know how to write, and you have fingers, and you have this one life, and during this one life, you should put your words down, and make your voice heard, and then let others hear your voice. And the only way any of that’s going to happen is if you actually do it. People can’t read the thoughts in your head. They can only read the thoughts you put down, carefully and with great love, on the page. So you have to do it, goddamnit. You have to do it, and you can step back and be happy. You can step back and relax. You can step back and feel something like pride.
Then of course you’ll have to revise it ten or twenty times, but let’s not talk about that yet.
Write your goddamned book now. The world awaits.” —-Dave Eggers’ 2010 NaNoWriMo pep talk (via wordscount)
I used to watch Barney when I was a kid! but probably 84 hours in a row … turn it into some kind of drinking game I guess… lol Do I get to sleep though? I can barely stay awake for 12 hours…
The next month will have a lot of vagueness because I cannot really post any details because whatever my nanobook turns out to be it will be given to a my best friend/only follower for christmas… buuuuuttt i thought you should all (yes just you crystal) know i am going way crazy planning style. I have roughly 25 pages of character back stories and family trees that may or may not even come into play, i just wanted to know who they all were and then as i started more and more appeared as if from no where. if only i was a better writer then i could make it all make sense in a plot…. also my spelling could improve drastically.
