Me and NaNoWriMo just broke up.

I cannot write this story.

My NaNoWriMo was my adult fiction that just wasn't working turned into a young adult novel that apparently just isn't working. I think I've beaten Gus, her family, Memphis, Conner, RaeAnne, Lizzy, and the whole town of Yellow Falls to the ground. I probably should have just left it alone when I broke up with it back in September...or was it October?

Either way, we're definitely splitting up for a while. Maybe one day when we can see eye to eye, we'll get back together, but it's time for this imagination station to move on.  

Since I was dedicated to writing this month, I'm still doing that with an idea that has seriously been on my mind for five days straight. It's insane. I've never tried to write anything like it before - it involves fairy tales and a whole other world. So for the last 10 days and 2 and a half hours of NaNoWriMo, I'm vowing to write 25K so in all I will have written 50K in the month of November....just on two separate stories.

So how is everyone else doing with their novel? Love it? Hate it? Want to burn it yet?


  1. Even if you've broken up with your story, I'm glad that you're still sticking with trying to hit the 50k!

  2. Awh. I'm not doing it but I know a few people who are. I'm glad you tried though!

  3. You gave a valiant effort though!


Feel free to comment - they make me feel special. Plus I will think you are awesome if you do leave one. Seriously. You are awesome.
