Is anyone other than me having serious NaNoWriMo dread?
I did it last year to show one of my friends that I could do it, and I did. I think I could do it again. I have two separate ideas I could possibly turn into a story if I wanted to, but I’m not sure how much I do.
Sometimes it feels to me, that you’re made to think that if you don’t do NaNo that you’re not a ‘serious’ writer and only ‘serious’ writers take part in NaNoWriMo. Etc etc etc. When I think of NaNo I can’t help but imagine this group of elitist writers sitting around and doing nothing but gloating about how good of a writer they are.
I don’t know. Sometimes I really can’t stand NaNo, but again, I’ll probably wind up doing it again to prove to people and myself especially, that last year wasn’t a fluke. It just really drives me nuts sometimes to hear people getting in a tizzy about Nano. Let me have my October before being inundated with ‘OMG IT’S TIME FOR NANO I HAVE NO IDEAS WHAT DO I DO? IT’S NANO TIME WHO IS NANO-ING?! NANONANO!’
Is that bad? Is there anyone else having a NaNoWriMo anxiety attack already?
