NaNoWriMo 15 Days to Start

Crap.

I decided today I’m doing NaNoWriMo. Not only that, but I’ve never had so much at stake. This year has been the year of Paul. A year where I do epic crap I’ve never done before. While getting published would have been nice to throw in there (I suppose really the year of Paul is when I turned 30, and in that case I’ve got time), NaNoWriMo has been a feat that’s eluded me for three years now. I cannot let it do that again. This year, it’s mine.

So fifteen days away from the beginning there is now dread in my gut. There is fear in my voice. My mind is rattling through plot lines more rapidly than a cheerleader through quarterbacks. I think I know the one I’ll be writing, and really I just need to say “This is what I’ll be writing” and it’ll be done. So okay, this is what I’ll be writing. Done. Until fifteen minutes from now.

Here is an awesome webcomic on Nano! It’s pretty spot on. Now I’m stressed and terrified knowing that I’m doing this. Let the games begin!

  1. Don’t stress about this! It’s fun – just put words on the page in as raw a story form as possible, and worry about it later. 50K words (not dollars) in a month is easy-peasy – as long as you don’t give in to stress and worry!

  2. Kudos and good luck on your noble literary quest. I look forward to what G’Desh and Ji-Wei have in store =)

    • Ji-Wei has a lot in store. It all started as a story to cheer up a former gf and became a five book epic. This or the north (Hurskfjell) will be book one of that. Do you plan on hitting nano?

      • I did, but real life knocked me down a notch or fifteen. Maybe next year, once everything is a bit more settled =\

      • Hurskfjell will have the Nordic types running rampant?

  3. Go for it, Paul! :)I may be inspired to join you, although like D. James, got a few too many obstacles to hop over, so we’ll see.
