I'm alive, my finger muscles have gotten weary of my constant typing, but it's so worth it.
Some questions I've been asked about NaNo, expressed in a grandiose manner for my entertainment.
WHY ARE YOU WRITING SO MUCH RIGHT NOW?
...because I want to take breaks on the weekend and not have to play catch up all month.
WHY YOU BE WRITING AT ALL?
Because it's fun. I actually enjoy writing all the time; it's one of the most rewarding experiences for me. NaNoWriMo is a perfect excuse to indulge in writing for a whole month.
YOU CRAY CRAY.
I know, I'm still reading books and catching up on Season 2 of Arrow (shameless plug).
SO YOU'RE NOT DEAD?
No, maybe a little exhausted. Super exhausted, but emotionally so happy.
...ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE NOT DEAD?
I'M SUPER STUCK ON MY PLOT/STORY. WHAT DO I DO?
Keep in mind where you want your story to wind up; how do you want to get there? What parts are important to see? What drives your characters? Keep that in mind as you write. Feel free to have a notebook cluttered with notes, it helps.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW HOW I WANT MY STORY TO END?
Then keep writing, FOREVER.
WHEN IS NANOWRIMO OVER AGAIN?
SO I'LL GET BOOK BLOG POSTS WHEN THIS IS ALL DONE?
Maybe. Probably. Yes.
WILL I GET ANY BLOG POSTS THIS MONTH?
Ehhhh....most likely. I have some blog posts in the works from before NaNoWriMo started, I just have to get up the will power to finish them.
GET ON IT. I HAVE BOOK NEEDS.
IS IT WEIRD TO KIND OF INTERVIEW YOURSELF?
A bit, but it helps that I've gotten into strange conversations about NaNoWriMo. Yep.
I'll just go back to writing now.... yeah....
