Okay, so what if I don’t hit the mark at Nanowrimo this year?

I’ve been asking myself this question a lot lately. It’s not as if I get paid for it, have to do it, or can’t write unless I do it in a frenzied way. And really my world will still be intact if I don’t do it.





Stressing myself so flippin’ much about it?


I. Don’t. Know.

Really, I’m not sure why I’m putting so much pressure on myself to hit the 50,000 word mark. Maybe I’m just not into nanowrimo this year. And that – I’m realizing – is fine.

As long as I have my own goal for writing and I meet that goal than, I’m good.

Another answer is that I think it’s like a Thanksgiving dinner situation. I’ve put too much on my plate and there is no way I can effectively finish all of it without feeling stressed in some way. Of course at dinner it would be my pants feeling the stress, but I think you figured that out already. 😉

Think with your heart, understand with your mind and remember to play like your five again.  Have a great day.

  1. Yep, NaNo can be a great tool, but it can also be a stressor. As with all things creative, remember to forgive yourself, and have fun. I really believe the rest will follow.
