The 4 Stages of NaNoWriMo




Week 1

Steady writing, this novel is going to be a work of art! Your in love with your characters and the NaNo Ship is sailing.



Week 2.

Wring is going okay. You don’t hit the word count everyday but you catch up. It’s not that hard. I mean your only a couple hundred behind everyday


Week 3. What, NaNoWriMo? What is this NaNoWriMo you speak of? You should write but theirs are other things. Like Pinterest and blogs and books. More important things…


Week 4:

Oh crap! I’m going to lose. I should’ve wrote AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why did I not write! 10K BEHIND!

MUST WRITE!!!!!!!!!!KGFKJHGFBHNFGHGF AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Last Day:

If you hit your word count, it is the most wonderful moment of your life. You’ve done. You sail through storms. You’ve climbed steep mountains. YOU WON NANWRIOMO AND DID THE INSANE THING OF PUTTING 50K WORDS ON PAPER (or computer)


And if you lose…

Well excuse me please. I’m going to go hide in a corner with some chocolate and bawl my eyes out.



Is this accurate for you? If not how to usually do NaNoWriMo? How is your NaNo going so far?

    My first week went pretty good, actually. Finishing it up with a whopping 7k tonight:p I didn’t get any writing done yesterday cuz I was gone all day, so I’m trying to make up for it. But I’m hoping my second week, I can kill my word count.

    1. Thanks.
      Be glad you haven’t. It’s crazy that us writers will evoke crazy amount of anxiety, sleepless nights and such just for the sake of 50k words…
      Yet I still do it.


  2. OKAY. BUT THIS IS SO ACCURATE. Pretty much how it goes each freaking time. I’m not taking part in NaNo this year, however, because dammit exams and school, so I’m just waiting for the next one now ;_; The gifs were definitely on point though. A+ usage!

  3. Hey, Rebekah! I’m coming over from The Inkloft to give you your prompt for the Flash Fiction Challenge. πŸ™‚
    Your prompt is, “They were right.” You can use it as dialogue, internal dialogue, or just as a theme for the story, since I don’t want to be too specific. I’m also not mean enough to give a word limit, so you can just stick with the 1,000 word max limit that Rachelle set. πŸ˜›
    Good luck with your story! xD
