It has been a long, grueling month and Thanksgiving hasn’t even hit yet. The holiday season makes it extremely hard to get a wordcount in. People are constantly calling, plans are being made, and there is no possible way – unless you leave the house – that people aren’t going to talk to you about something from decorations to gift ideas. As a writer, it can be and is utterly frustrating.
So of course, NanoWrimo would fall in November – when this lovely, crazy time of year starts. Maybe the beginning of November isn’t too hard to to deal with, but as it gets closer to Turkey Day (at least for those of us in America) the family starts coming out of the wood work, smelling the phantom aroma of Turkey that isn’t going to be made for at least a week yet – but they all have their requests. Different potatoes, or appetizers, or deserts. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about.
On top of allll that, you’re trying to write 50k words in thirty days. It’s a bitch ain’t it?
But! It is possible!
I know. Because I did it!
That’s right, this chickadee did the challenge!
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’ve finished Wrimo, I’ve got finals, the holidays are coming up, and next semester I’m taking five classes so I’mma be busy as whoa! However, I do plan on working this novel and making it my bitch. I need it to be between 80 and 100k words. I figure between the rewrites, transitional scenes, and everything in between to have it make sense, it’s doable. It’s just not going to be an over night thing. It’s going to be a lot of work.
I’m game bitches! And I’m gonna do it. It’s just the way it is. However, tonight is the night I finished Wrimo.
