haylooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo lovie dovies!
it's almost here!
what is "it," exactly?
i know what you're thinking.
and no, i'm not edward cullen.
but, unless you have writer friends or are a writer yourself, you probably have absolutely N O C L U E what NaNoWriMo is.
in short, NaNoWriMo is 50 T H O U S A N D words in 30 days.
sounds impossible, doesn't it?
well, allow me to let you in on a little secret.
it is possible.
some people even finish two.
some crazy, insane, completely out-of-their-mind writers actually attempt this.
and i'm in high school.
i have homework and quizzes and tests and chores and friends and a boyfriend...
and i'm attempting to write a novel in that short of time.
and, really, i'm actually kinda confident i can balance it all and at least hit the 25k mark by the end of november.
codey says i'll make it waaayyy past that, but i'm trying to be realistic.
but he also says that i can be social just by sitting with him while i write, so...
i know what you're thinking again.
"but what about the plot and paper project?"
plot and paper's deadline is December 31.
i'm assuming that's midnight on new years', hopefully.
i am currently at 37 pages.
i'm hoping to reach somewhere near the 50 page mark before November 1. maybe even the 60 page mark.
and, during NaNoWriMo, it'll be my writers' block blocker. i'll work on it when i can't work on Bare Feet & October Daisies. and then i'll write more on it in December while i let BF&OD stew, and i'll look at it with fresh eyes, later.
i have some crazily big dreams and expectations.
can i honestly finish them both by their deadlines? probably not.
can i realistically expect that things aren't going to cause my writing to go to the wayside along the way? of course not.
but, go big or go home.
