A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (and hopefully beyond).
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?

122. I blame Nanowrimo for...

 

17th December 2016 

God it's been so long, sorry guys. A lot has happened in a month that I haven't documented so the undated entries ahead of this, mark the events which I forgot to mention. 

But I blame Nanowrimo for my long absence. It took every available minute of my time as the novel demanded to be progressed. There's a few more things that I blame Nanowrimo for too; 

1. For making the thirst of writing a top priority thing. 

I was writing in every spare moment that I had, even at school in a fifteen minute break. The novel just screamed at me and so there were times when even TV shows or reading were put to the side in favour of writing. 

2. For making me conscious of my failings as a writer. 

The fifty thousand word stretch made me notice my habits and failings as a writer. There were points where all I wanted to do was delete the story and scrap it for good. But I got over those. Anyway, I noticed how I said 'somewhat' a hell of a lot through out my work and through the editing stage this month it's been kind of obvious and hilarious. When you feel like your writing isn't good enough, or worthy of a read, it's horrible. But Nanowrimo is all about pushing through those struggles and carrying on anyway. 

3. For making me hella proud of myself. 

Writing fifty thousand words while under the pressure of A Levels is a massive accomplishment for me. Better yet, I completed that goal within three weeks and in the remaining week wrote a further fifteen thousand words. All together, I wrote sixty five thousand words in a month while under pressure. That is the most words I have ever written in a time period and this novel will be the most lengthiest novel I have ever created. While doing Nanowrimo itself, writing a good chapter made me feel really happy with myself because I had just done this amazing thing that I thought people would love. 

 

I blame Nanowrimo for hating myself and loving myself at the same time in the most extreme ways. No matter how hard or easy it has been, I will definitely do it next year because it has taught me that nothing is truly impossible. If I want to write a novel, I will very well write a damn novel.
