NaNoWriMo 2013 - Week 1 Update

This has been a crazy week. I've been so busy I haven't had much time for writing, which sucks and is seriously stressing me out. As of the time of writing this (8pm Thursday night), I'm at 12,735 words. I know it could be worse, but if I don't manage to write tomorrow (I haven't written the last two all), I'll officially be behind. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

The actual writing I've done has gone fairly well. I like where I'm headed with the story, but I'm not sure there's enough conflict. That's always my problem - conflict. It's the bane of my writerly existence.

So besides being busy, I've been finding every excuse under the sun not to write. So Nathan Fillion is all...

And I'm like OK NATHAN FILLION, LET'S WRITE. But then I don't. I do all the other things.

And then David Tennant is all...

And I'm like I KNOW, DAVID TENNANT, STOP PRESSURING ME with your sexy scowl and hair I want to run my fingers through and...ahem sorry... 

So I know I should be writing, and I want to write, but everything else is getting in the way. And this is why I hate NaNoWriMo. THE PRESSURE. I'm already crazy, I shouldn't invite more insanity into my life.

I was going to share a little teaser from my story with you guys today but...yeah, now I'm too lazy and I just want to get off the computer and go eat ice cream. Next week!

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? Add me as a buddy! Or chat with me on Twitter! Are you feeling the pressure yet? How many words have you written?


  1. Marie. I love you. This post made me giggle and motivated me at the same time. I hope you can dedicate a little bit of time to writing today!! *huggles*

  2. First of all, hugs! Love you <3 Second of all I started with about 8,000 words already written and now I am up to 24,000. I did nearly half the challenge already. The second part of going to involve romance which I'm excited about but also nervous about because I don't even read a lot of YA romance but somehow I gotta make these characters have sizzling chemistry. Now that's going to be hard for me.

  3. Love to buddy up but don't know your whole name. Find me I'm emaginette (as always) and will chat, kick but or whatever else you need.

    You can pump up the tension later. Don't let that stop you. :-)

  4. I will send you (jokingly) harassing / motivational BBM messages until you DO WRITE. Seriously though, just breathe. Remember you're doing this because you love writing, and have FUN with it. :D

    Also this post made me LOL majorly.


Thanks for visiting Ramblings of a Daydreamer! I love hearing what you have to say, and I appreciate every single comment. I hope to see you here again soon! ♥
