Nano Creeping Up

owned by Nanowrimo!
This year has been extremely busy for me. As soon as school started I felt like I got sucked into a whirlpool! I honestly feel like I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off, but hey, that happens to everyone every now and then, right?

The past couple of months I've seen up's and down's in my life that I never in a million years could have imagined. With those up's and down's came extreme sacrifices and decisions that I never thought I would have to face.

But, we're trucking through!

As many of you know, or should know!, Nanowrimo is just around the corner! People will come together, and freak out together, as they try to push a novel out of them in just one short month. It can be a hard and daunting task, but when you finally finish it, it's exhilarating!

For a while I thought I wasn't going to be able to do it. I thought that my life was crazy and hectic and adding one more thing would just make my entire life fall apart. However, recently I've relieved some of that stress that's been holding me back and I think I'm going to jump back into Nano this year. Last year was my first year participating, and winning!, and the feeling of actually doing it made me want to cry and jump around with joy!

I can't give that up. Especially when life is so stressful! I know that when I finally do complete Nano this year, I'll be happy! It's something to look forward to!

Did anyone else have second thoughts about Nano this year?


  1. I did have second thoughts a few times over the last couple of months. The rewrite on my last book is taking A LOT longer than I thought it would. However, I'm ready to put it aside, so I can win again. I cried, danced, and screamed too last year. It's a momentous feeling to accomplish such a tremendous feet like NaNo.

    1. I'm still not done with my rewrite of last years, I know I'm terrible!, but I have an idea for Nano finally, I think. It's really bugging me so hopefully it sticks!
