Don’t panic- no, that’s my job. Prep, prep, prep, PANIC! For those of you lucky individuals out there who have no clue what NaNoWriMo is consider yourself blessed.
November is the month from Hell for werd wranglers like me. Don’t get me wrong, some people LOVE it. I call those people insane. From 12:01am on the 1st of November until 11:59:59 pm on the 30th we write. The goal is to reach 50,000 words by the ending seconds of the month. That breaks down to approx. 1,667 words per day. There are days I don’t say that many words, but now I must write them down.
You are sitting there like, “Geesh, Ticia. It’s only a month. Chill and shit.” NO! It’s not JUST a month. Nope…you see you have to plan ahead. Plot. Research. Stress yourself out. Buy snacks and WINE. Lots of wine. And plot some more. The entire month of October is set aside to prepare for the entire month of November. So it’s not just A month. Nooooo…it’s months with an “s”.
It’s a challenge and I will participate. What that means for you is I may irritable. No different than any random Tuesday. I may be a bit more sporadic in my postings on here and every other social media acct…kind of like I am not. I may whine. Like I’m doing now. I will probably be found drinking a bott…glass of wine in the evening. Hmmm…this is starting to sound familiar.
Who’s with me? Who’s prepping for NaNo? Are you excited or freaked out like me?
