Remember? NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month.
NaNoWriMo is one of those weird made-up words that whenever you say it you aren't sure it's right. All month, gregorific's crew happily overused NaNoWriMo. Mostly just for the pleasure of feeling it roll off your tongue; and then the delicious doubt about whether you said it right; and then the satisfied smile when you figure you did say it right. Because your fellow crew member responded the same way.
Let me illustrate how things were around the casa de gregorific throughout the month of November:
Who's doing the dishes? NaNoWriMo! (Translates to = NOT Mom.)
Why is this place such a wreck? NaNoWriMo!
What is Mom doing? NaNoWriMo!
Where is my _______________ (Fill in the blank)? NaNoWriMo! (Translates to = Find it yourself!)
When are we putting up our decorations? NaNoWriMo!
Weekend plans? NaNoWriMo!
And this is how I looked ALL month:
My crew also loved it--and the fun name helped, A LOT. NaNoWriMo!
But it could never last longer than a month. Gregorific's abode would explode.
And I did give up a couple times. I would waste several days catching up with real life and wallowing in my defeat. Mostly my problem came not from character development or lack of setting or desire to write. It was plot, people. I wanted it to twist and turn but also feel smooth as a petal.
So...was I able to create 50,000 words in a month?
I won, ya’ll!
I will soon share my NaNoWriMo project with you! Until then, feel the love, people…thank you!
