If you aren’t aware of this momentous event, it’s a writing competition (of sorts) that happens every November. The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. (Hence the gif above. Just look at the panic in his eyes.)

Remember that steampunkish, Revolutionary War novel that I told you about earlier? (Consult this post if you don’t remember.) I’m writing that story and IT’S A BLAST. I have seriously fallen for my characters , and I love writing about them. ^-^

But the problem is, I have written a whopping 2,000. *screaming* Yeah, I’m panicking.


Anyway, I’m sure I’ll pull through, but say a prayer for this helpless writer.

I didn’t mean for this post to be so desperate . . . *shrugs* Oh well.

If you’re doing NaNo, do these gifs describe you?

Or maybe this describes you better:

I just really love gifs, okay?

I just really love gifs, okay?

Tell me below and we can sob (or do that funky dance) together.


  1. NANOWRIMO killed me :(
    I failed drastically so there’s that. *leaves to cry in corner due to my inability to think of stuff to write about fast enough*

  2. I’m doing the dance!!!! BUT I’m cheering you on, Hope!!! You can do this thing!

  3. I counted my 6.3k from earlier last month because I’m cheating and doing it more for fun and hoping fruitlessly to get 50k with my boost. XD but yea, I wrote 2.2k yesterday so I’m happy with that.

    You can do this!
