I’ve been blogging less so I can publish more over the next month.
Makes total sense when I think about it. I’ve stockpiled several entries that I’ve been nipping away at here and there, just so I can have a supply of fresh stuff to post to my blog while I’m busy writing a novel.
Yep. NaNoWriMo time is upon us. National Novel Writing Month – happens every November.
It’s that glorious time of year I set aside just so I can watch myself fail miserably.
Am I being self-defeating? Setting myself up for failure because I’m already convinced that I won’t (can’t) reach 50,000 words of a novel in one month? Maybe. Do you think reverse psychology works?
That’s what I plan to find out.
I won’t post updates about what I’m writing, so don’t expect any. I won’t share details about plot or characters or any of that shit, mostly because… well, I don’t actually know much about that shit at this point in time. Like a yak on a mountaintop somewhere in Tibet, I live on the edge.
I also won’t end any Facebook posts or Tweets with #amwriting hashtags.
Just assume that I’m writing.
Which means I’m probably napping. Or playing video games because DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION COMES OUT ON NOVEMBER 18TH!!!!!!!! YEAAAAAAHHHHHHH BUDDY!
Dammit. If anything is going to make me fail, it’s going to be that thing. I’ve been lusting after that video game for THREE YEARS, so of course it’s going to be released during a period of time when I must try to remain focused on another task.
A sign of a serious writer is the ability to prioritize, right?
