One of the reasons I haven’t been here in the blog world all that much, or commenting (sorry!) is because I’m studying… for the PSAT. It probably doesn’t seem to be that big of a deal for most of you, however, I’m becoming a little freaked out. Why?
- Math is my worst subject – I took a practice quiz tonight and got 18/36. Ouch.
- Alright, confession time. I’ve never, ever sat inside a classroom. In my entire life. I’ve got enough to worry about with the previous confession (math, *cough*), that I don’t need to be distracted by a new environment.
Although, these are not the scores that might or might not qualify me for the National Merit Scholarship. I’m definitely thankful for that (I’ll be taking that PSAT in the spring…). I’m issuing an official SOS here – does anyone have any advice or tips? Prayers would be appreciated as well.
Now, for the second part of my post. I’ve been considering participating in NaNoWriMo. In case you don’t know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, where you write a 50,000 word novel from scratch in 30 days (Nov.). Exciting, huh?
However, I have one slight problem. It’s called time. I barely have time to sit and write this post, let alone write a 50,000 word novel in one month.
There is an alternative – NaNoWriMo has a Young Writers Program, where you can set a goal for yourself, then complete it in November.
- Realistically, it’s more doable than it’s sister program.
- Not-so-realistically, it’s not the same. You don’t have that extreme number of words to work up to, unless you set it for yourself. And that’s no fun, really.
So, what do you think? Should I just go for it and do
or should I participate in
YWP – NaNoWriMo
I’m putting up a poll on the sidebar – go ahead and tell me what you think!
