NaNoWriMo: "I'll get caught up this weekend" and other lies

Illustration for article titled NaNoWriMo: Ill get caught up this weekend and other lies

Week one is almost done, and on Sunday, we entered the dreaded Week Two of NaNoWriMo.


Things that happen in week two:

  • You realize that you hate your story.
  • You realize that your characters hate you.
  • Someone in your group hits 25k and is all “Oh, nbd, I just write on my phone during my commute in.”
  • You remember that you promised to ‘catch up’ over the weekend and holy shit it’s the weekend what were you thinking
  • You decide to clean your entire house, KonMari style. Actually, no, fuck that, you’re going to out do Marie Kondo. You’re going to take it up a notch because it’s better than facing your wordcount deficit.

I’m actually doing fine, heading into week two. Yesterday was a bust due to traffic and work and family all being full of butts, but I’m not behind... yet. We’ll see if I can build my buffer back up.

Your NaNo resource today: StoryBundle has a book bundle of books about writing! Pay what you can and get a bunch of DRM-free books to download!


Also, if you’ve never heard of StoryBundle, they’re rad. Go check out the rest of their offerings this month!

How is everyone else doing?
