I told myself I was going to finish this book in October, and GOSH DARN IT, I am going to! Bear witness, readers. Gabrielle promised herself and you that she would finish UNTITLED by the end of October. Preferably by the thirtieth so she’ll have at least one day for NaNo prep.
On the topic of NaNo – and really, that’s probably all I’ll talk about this entire month, as I’m that much of a fanatic – do you realize it’s just ONE MONTH AWAY? I’m freaking out. In the good way.
It’s possible that NaNo is the meaning of my life.
I’ll admit, I’m a tad bit concerned about NaNo this year. I have no doubt that I’ll finish, but I’m worried about meeting my personal goals and fitting NaNo in around school and the amount of fun I’ll have.
You see, this will be my first NaNo away from home. In previous years, I’ve noveled away with my two or more sisters. We went and wrote at cafes and between classes at school and laughed and talked and commiserated. My family was super supportive, and my sister never complained when I stayed up until seven in the morning writing.
Enter APSU and dorm life. I’m a little scared that my roommate will kill me if I stay up late writing in our room, I have more homework than I’ve ever had in previous years, and as far as I know, there are no NaNoers nearby.
These are some obstacles to maximum word countage and fun, but have no fear! I’m not at all discouraged. It’ll only be that much more awesome when I blow my projected word count out of the water and write the next Great American Novel.
It’s all positivity and optimism in this girl right here. Now I’m off to write UNTITLED… I mean, do homework. Cause I should probably do that first.
