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.

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania.
