Hello my lovelies, I hope you are all having a lovely relaxed (or adventurous) Sunday morning. Mine’s been rather productive, which is odd for a Sunday lol, but I’m so excited to let y’all know I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year! Yep, thanks to Jamie over at the amazing blog: Through Two Blue Eyes, I felt like this is the year to have a little frenzied/chaotic/writing fun. And what better way to accomplish that AND knock out the rest of my current WIP Prophecy!
Sigh, I really must get my excitement under control (or maybe November just needs to hurry up and get here already?). I signed up a little over a week ago and spent this morning filling out all the Author Bio and Current Novel sections and now I guess I just wait and
maniacally patiently countdown the days to the first of November. Sigh…
One thing I did notice this morning though was my total lack of NaNo forum experience and how I have no idea if I come across as a total creeper or not. Seriously, I’m not a forum person, I have no idea how the whole thing is conducted and how you supposedly meet new writing buddies, I mean, do you message someone because you think they sound cool (which I did so we’ll see how that turns out) or do you just read the new comments twenty-four/seven hoping someone responds to your random comment that way? It’s a bit of an online social nightmare and I’m somewhat worried I’m going to come across like the one person no-one wants to talk to lol! But oh well, this is my NaNo year dammit so prepare yourselves for awkward Forum conversations and/or messages until I get my bearings!
That all being said my lovelies are any of you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Do you have any advice for a completely well-meaning but slightly awkward novice? Are you seeking a new writing buddy with my particular brand of hilarity, charm, and complete lack of forum know-how? Let me know! 😀
