Me No Write-y

Since we’re all friends I neim-a-quittered to confess something to you: I have big dreams saddled with pipsqueak ability. No pity needed. I’m in the acceptance phase of denial.

In a classic Thain in Vain move, I signed up for something I will inevitability dread more and more as the start date looms approaches and ultimately quit. The list is endless: French classes, running seminars, clarinet lessons, disco dancing classes, volunteer hell work, writing classes, comedy classes, drinks with relative strangers, summer camp, dates, job(s) . . . And NaNoWriMo is no different.

Since November 1, I have managed to write a shameful 518 words for NaNoWriMo. And most (all) of these words are cool names for several characters that are flatter than my ass after a ‘Breaking Bad’ marathon weekend.

I shall remove the NaNoWriMo widget from my blog and neuralyze* those unfortunate folks I drunkenly blabbed to about “writing a novel that I’ve been toying with for a while. It’s about blah, blah, blah, blah, ya, sure I’ll have another Jäger Bomb. . .”

So what’s next for Thain in Vain you may wonder. Well, no big plans at this point. Working, living, watching crud-ass TV, oh and I’ve recently signed up to participate in NaBloPoMo.

When does this shi*t start again?

*Thain in Vain is a smart, funny blogger that you must follow.

      I think I may have written 29 words before caving! Shameful! Can I expect that you will joining the flash fiction challenge?? It’s tons of fun and we are all seeing improvements in our writing since we started!! And thanks for liking my blog!!!

      I know November is over but….have you given the novel another shot? I had a faltering attempt at NaNoWriMo in 2012 that went absolutely nowhere. 2013 must have been lucky for me–I made it. But there were days when I wrote nothing. Absolutely nothing. Give it a try this year. Give it a try in a month other than November if you want. You’ve got a great sense of humor and the world deserves to see more from you. Well, the world sucks (sometimes). And you’re pretty awesome. So there needs to be more of your writing out there to make the world better and more amusing.

        You know, I signed up for it this past November and caved because I totally over committed myself! I’m impressed you were successful this year–not an easy feat! Good work!

        And thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated. Much needed! I’m new to the blogging world and as such I’m challenging myself as a writer and more importantly, as a poster! It’s hard to put yourself out there!! As you know.

        I definitely understand that. I only started my current blog in September–prior to that I’d made attempts at travel blogs when I moved abroad but they faltered after a few posts. I think one of the big reasons I succeeded with NaNoWriMo this year (I talked about it in my wrap up post) was that I fell short on so many of my other goals this year that I really, really needed a win. I also do know what it’s like to overcommit yourself–there are so many things to do and never enough time to do them all. Maybe next year!
