The 10 Stages Of Writing My Novel

I signed up for NaNoWriMo this November, where writers across the world strive for a goal of writing 50,000 words in one month. I signed up so that I could proudly say I'd written a novel, and it has been a whirlwind.

Excitement to just write

Giphy

Oh my gosh, look at all the words I wrote today! This is going to be a piece of cake.

Falling in love with your characters

Giphy

These characters are so perfect!

Being social

Giphy

"Hey, person walking by, did I tell you what my novel's about?"

Nervousness

Giphy

Will I have enough words?

Full-on panic

Giphy

I literally have no plot and I'm 4,000 words in already.

Snacking

Giphy

Maybe I just need some energy for a good idea to strike...

...We go back to being social...

Giphy

"Hey, excuse me random stranger, what would you do in this highly specific situation?"

Confusion

Giphy

Y'all, I got 50 pages of words and I can't find the spot I need to work on.

...And, back to being social (why are there so many people?)

Giphy

"No, really, I don't think you're going to want to read this. It's pretty bad."

Exhaustion

Giphy

December 1st, involved taking a long nap.

5 Reasons to Consider a Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty."

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple.
