Well, my dears, there are five days remaining in National Novel Writing Month, and I am just about 4,000 words behind schedule. That being said, I don’t think I’m going to quit just yet. You see, Telea has been a participant in NaNoWriMo for the past four years. Yes, she is a veteran, but never has received an honorable discharge, which is what she is looking for this year.
Yes, she believes year four is the big year. It has certainly felt inspired up to this point, and all she needs is some brain-food to kick her shit into gear. That being said, Telea doesn’t know how exactly she plans on actually finishing this. She means to say that 4,000 words feels like a lot, and 11,000 words feels like even more.
Se remembers when she started this whole thing, 22 days ago. She remembers sitting down and thinking to herself: Hey, you know what would be an absolutely great idea? If I wrote a book in a month. Yep, sounds like an awesome plan to me.
Well, Telea, you’re a goddamn idiot, because you have just realized that you can’t write an entire novel in a month. You have actually only managed to write the first large part of your novel, and you have recently realized that this feels like the halfway mark to you. 40,000 words? Yeah. that feels like half done. There’s so much more character progression to do.
Basically, you’re fucked. How are you going to write this entire book and have it fit for publishing when you’re so out of ideas that you have your main character questioning the existence of god? Sweet Mother of Thor, you have to figure something out, and fast.
That being said, you, Telea, are on Facebook probation. That’s right. For all of today you have no permission to visit Facebook for any reason. That is, unless you hit 45,000 words. Yes, my dears, that does happen to be the goal for today.
Wish me luck and also pray to Asgard that this blathering of mine will stop by the end of the month and I’ll be back to writing quality material. Right? My question of the day is: Do you think you could ever write a publishable novel?
