What to do when NaNo Eats Your Life


NaNo is a very hungry monster, and likes to eat lives. *Nods* Mhm. It eats our lives.

*Cue everyone running away screaming*

Do not fear! This is not necessarily a bad thing! You just need to control it a little bit.

Today I realised that it was Thursday and I had noooo clue what I should do for a blog post. I mentioned this to Jane and she said, “You could just do a blog post about how NaNo ate your blog post.” So, that is what I shall do!

When the calendars flipped over to November a deadly beast cracked open its eyes from a year long slumber. The NaNoWriMo Dragon has awoken.

Reports have been made that it has been sighted as far as Australia, and yet also circling around in America. Many countries are terrorised by the beast. Writers have ganged together online to fend off the monster, but some of our bravest warriors have fallen. The desperate battle to reach 50k is strongly underway now at day 9 for the Australians and less for the others.

We have thankfully been able to see our progress as we write, and mine for Chosen by Fire is on a steady course, despite having have been attacked by the dragon’s sly mid point attack—trying to slow down my writing by making the section seem boring.

How does one get past the evil dragon’s cunning attacks? Well, brace yourselves! Arm yourselves with word wars, character arcs, plot ideas, and a list of convenient names for those characters who you really should have thought of a name for.

Above all, ignore the evil dragon when he tells you  that you are a cruel person when you kill that two year old adorable girl. *Sniffs, grabbing a handful of tissues* Don’t let his words get to you! Remember, it helps for character development!

Finally, your prompt to get you through these hard times. I wish all of you luck facing the beast of NaNoWriMo.
