My NaNo WIP has hit that second week slump.  I read about it before starting, but thought, "Oh, no.  That won't happen to me.  I lurv my story and all the characters and the setting and the blah blah blah."

Here is the problem:  all the characters have become mind-numbingly boring to me.  What do I want to do next, plot-wise?  I want to put them all on a boring boat, the U.S.S. Borington and send them out to sea, let them bore each other to death.  Then, start over with brand new sparkly characters, maybe vampires who will not be boring, and let them have a party on that boat.

Or maybe I'll eat a Candy Cane Hershey's Kiss and keep plugging away.  Or three.

[ETA:  Why can I not get my characters to stop rolling their eyes?  Why?  Why??]


  1. Funny post--though I do feel your pain. Have LOTS of Candy Cane Hershey's Kisses and don't give up! :) (BTW, I don't even know what a Candy Cane Hershey's Kiss is yet, but I'll be sure to find out!)

  2. So worth the trip to the supermarket, Dawn!

  3. I love all your cute words! Like "hubbykins" and "Borington". LOL!

    Maybe your charm on yourself has worn off. That's why NaNo is a very hard thing to accomplish. I'm in awe of you! I can't do it. I would bore myself or make things up that could never happen in a million years EVEN IN A FANTASY!! LOL!

    Here's to you getting through the second week!

  4. Thanks, Pam! I love that about being a writer--if the right word doesn't exist, make one up!
