My decision accompanied by lots of screaming.

*drumroll*
I am doing NaNoWriMo.
*takes deep breath*
Yes.
I am doing it.
MWAHAHAAA.
Last night I was brainstorming with my parents about my plot and I was saying something like, "IF I do NaNoWriMo..." and my mom interrupted and said, "Oh come on, you KNOW you are going to do it."
And so I pretty much caved.
I think I've known in my hearts of hearts for a week or two now that I will be doing NaNoWriMo. I just didn't feel up to admitting it. I still don't actually. My brain is screaming, "ABBEY: GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF! YOU ARE TOOOOO BUSY!!" But my inner writer was arguing back.... So now it seems like it's won.
I am doing NaNoWriMo.
And now I'm panicking.
FIVE DAYS AND ONE HOUR UNTIL NANOWRIMO! MY PLOT IS IN SHAMBLES! ONE OF MY MAIN CHARACTER'S DOES NOT HAVE A PAST! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
At least my bad guy sort of has a motive? I know what everyone is after.... But... but... I have to do research! On rhinestones none the less! AHHHHHHH!!! Not enough time!!
Brain. On. Overload.
Like I don't have enough to think about anyway.... I'm gonna be up all night. Sigh. My brain already keeps me up thinking too late!!
One good thing: Most of my characters have names! My two main characters... their friend.... My female main character's family.... But..... but.... I need names for their boss! And the evil minions! AHHHHH!!!
Ok... Get a hold of yourself Abbey. Pull yourself together. It's only 50,000 words in a month.... AHHHHHH!!! Ok maybe not 50,000.... 40,000? 30,000? We'll see how far that gets me.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Live long.... and... prosper...?

*faints*

  1. Yay! I'm so glad you decided to do it! And don't panic, NaNoWriMo is supposed to be seat-of-your-pants writing! Last year I didn't even know what I was going to write about until November came around... I'm still not sure if I know what I was writing about...

    But Huzzah! You'll get through this and you shall emerge victorious!
