I have a dillemma.

And we all know how much I hate that word.

What is my dilemma, you ask? NaNoWriMo. I'm going to copy~paste this little explanation, here:
Actually (and I hate to say this, because there's only eight days left) I'm thinking of giving up my NaNoWriMo. Not because I can't do it (I can!), but because I genuinely don't like the story anymore. I like the beginning and I like the end but there's nothing in between but a bunch of scattered short stories. I just can't bring myself to officially end it because 1) my parents will be disappointed, and 2) I'll feel like a quitter. So, bah.

Well, there ya go. What do you think? Do I have a right not to be guilted into finishing something I don't want to finish? Or should I just try and work around the fact that my "story" is a joke of anything literary? I don't know. I just want to drown my sorrows in chocolate fraps and read poetry. I just need to take a shower first.


  1. Don't give up! You can do it!


  2. I think you should try continuing it since you've already come so far, but if you really jut dislike it thatmuch, then I guess I dunno :/ But in the end, it's your decision!

  3. Keep going...perhaps after you can tweek the story line a bit to make all those little stories flow together. Or turn it into a story about a writer with a book of short stories.... just a thought.

  4. haha, how many words do you have? I have a few friends who are doing it, and it's taken over their lives. I think that you should continue it. Even if you don't finish it before the month is over. It will still be an amazing accomplishment! Good luck!
