Today, in honor of the first day of NaNoWriMo 2015 (which if you don't what if, first you obviously haven't been here long because I talk about it nonstop and second it's National Novel Writing Month wherein tons and tons of people spend the month of November trying to write a 50,000 word novel). Wow, that took longer than I thought. Anyway, I am letting you all be privy to my initiation ceremony....are you ready?
To start, you will need the following:
1 Hooded Cloak
1 Dark room
1 Sharp Pin
and 1 Dark Blue Candle (must be dark blue and don't forget something to light said candle with)
REMEMBER: You must be alone in your dark room with your cloak, pin, and candle
Turn off all the lights in your room and shut blinds, thus creating the aformentioned "dark room"
Pull the hood up to hide your face
Light your candle
Prick your finger with your sharp pin
As your blood drips off your finger repeat after me...
I do solemnly promise to spend the month of November,
dedicated to my writing,
drinking all the coffee,
and to create something from my most vaguest of ideas
I pledge myself to my WIP
and the life of the NaNoWriMo-er
forever i shall write my words
30 days i have
please help me god
Or, if this is all too dark for you then follow these simple steps:
1. On November 1st (today) open your document
2. Stare at the blank document
3. Go make coffee (or whatever you prefer)
4. Get a snack
6. JUST WRITE ALL THE CRAPPY WORDS AND BE PUMPED ABOUT IT DANGIT!
Good luck with NaNo everyone! And remember, you can't lose unless your total at the end of the month is 0! My NaNo profile if you want to be friends or just see what I'm writing!
If you aren't doing NaNo, what fun things have you planned for this month??? If are doing NaNo, tell me something about your novel!
