I’m writing a novel in a month. I’m an idiot.

I signed up for NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. What this means is I agreed to attempt to write a novel in a month. I need to write 50,000 words to “win” Nano.

Signing up was easy, and now I am proceeding to the next logical step: freaking myself out.

I’m working on a Superhero story. I thought I had a good chunk done, and realized that I only have 3000 words.

3000/50,000 words = 6% completion.

Then I thought, ok I wrote a thesis. That was a long thesis, if I could do that, I can do this.

I nervously retrieved my thesis from my many unorganized folders.

It was only 11,000 words.

Eleven.Thousand. Words.

11,000/50,000 = 22% of the distance I have to go.

Up until the last sentence, I have written 134 words.

134/50,000 = 0.268%

Fuck.50,000

werds
