NaNoWriMo 2011

So it begins.

I have never done National Novel Writing Month before, and I sure as death and taxes have never written 50,000 words in one month, especially a month containing Thanksgiving, SATs, Renaissance Fairs and 11.11.11. Parties that I am throwing.

And yet for some reason I'm going to attempt it this year?

Writers are crazy.

And so will be my posting, I'm sure. If I post angry/depressed/bullying/rude/dysfunctional/etc. stuff this month, I apologize in advance. I also apologize if posting ceases altogether.

I'm completely freaking out. I can't write 50,000 words in a month! ARE YOU CRAZY? I've barely ever written 50,000 words on a single story in my whole life! "Mirror" is the only exception and for GOD ONLY KNOWS WHAT REASON, I've decided NOT to do "Mirror!" I'm doing the fire fairy story, which is great and everything, but 50,000 words on a concept you developed when you were 12 suddenly just sounds like authorial suicide.

I hope this is gonna be fun, guys. I have a sneaking suspicion it will not be, and while I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to do it, I also refuse to waste a month of my life being completely miserable. We'll see how this goes.

Oh gawd.

Feel free to take the NaNo button on the sidebar if you're doing it. My username is Ember_Ink if you want to add me or whatever...

Oh, hey, who's doing it? Jay, right?


P.S. Lawl, today's date is 11.1.11. I like that.


  1. I'm absolutely doing it, I happen to have a free day today because my work changed so I'm hoping for a big start. I'll add you for sure :)

    By the way, if you don't make the 50,000 words, it's not a fail. They may call you a 'winner' if you do but whatever words you have by the end of the month is words you wouldn't have had otherwise. Most don't make it. I think of all my writing buddies last year only myself and one other person made it all the way.

    But I think you can do it! Some days the word goal comes way faster than others, so take advantage of it while you can.

    Good luck :D

  2. Nice fire heart picture by the way. And don't forget, don't edit, just write :p
