Good morning, Cyberspace, and welcome to the Week One Sign-In for the NaNoWriMo Dare Squad!
That’s right, folks. We have officially conquered an entire week of the monstrous beast known to many as. . .The NaNo.
For some of you, you have been riding the crimson tidal wave of inspiration ever since day one, and are currently revving up your writerly engines to dive right back into Week Two with a grin and a sparkle in your slightly twitching left eye.
For others, you are slogging through each day like it could potentially be your last, slurping caffeine like it is fuel for your third lung and possibly developing a nervous tick somewhere off in your right kneecap.
And for the fair few like me, you are doing absolutely none of the above, and are instead resting your heavy head on a soft, floofy pillow, your arms crossed delicately over your chest as you peacefully recover from all of the glorious sleep you’ve regrettably missed out on over the past 3,000 years. . .
. . . whilst trapped in weirdly shaped rectangular box . . .
. . . 6-feet below ground level . . .
. . . because you are dead.
But no matter which group you happen to belong to, I’m sure I can speak for all of us when I say that this past week has been home to glorious triumphs, painful horrors, and many brutal tears that have been used to salt our slightly bland mashed potatoes.
DO NOT QUESTION MY BRILLIANCE, SIR. I AM EXHAUSTED.
And this, my fellow Squadians, is the place where we talk about it all. From
whining and complaining about completely failing your goal by day two (hahahahahahahahahaha–me) discussing delicious cookie recipes that ‘totally’ help with writer’s block, to pointing and gloating at all of the losers from the top of your word count celebrating a milestone in your NaNoWriMo adventure, your fellow teammates are here to help you through and cheer you on.
But before we begin the festivities, here is a much sleep-deprived and slightly burnt out pep talk, brought to you by Yours Truly. . .
Kenzie’s Weekly Pep-Talk!
Whoo. Yeah. Write those words. You can do it. Whoo. *cheers mediocrely*

This has been. . .
Kenzie’s Weekly Pep-Talk!
And there you go, Cyberspace! A pep-talk to get you through Week Two. But before you dive back into those stories once again, make sure to take a moment and sign in down below to tell us all what you’ve been up to!
Because let’s be honest, sometimes talking about our stories is much more fun than actually writing the story, am I right???
And who knows! Perhaps talking through your story problems will actually aid you in solving them, rather than just screaming frantically at your screen in the dim hope that the plot holes will run away from you in fear.
although there have been precisely three separate recordings of the latter solution actually working. 10/10 recommend. user discretion is advised.
talk to me, peasants!
wow. this post was extremely slapped together and short. #oops
Hello, my fellow Squadians! How has the writing been going? Have you triumphantly punched your goal in its gappy face yet, or is your word count continually stabbing you in the toe with a rusty pitchfork? What are some of the victories and horrors you’ve encountered throughout this beautiful week? Any milestones? Are you staying hydrated (HYDRATION DOES NOT EQUAL COFFEE, PEOPLE) or are you just content with being a limp raisin at this point? (like me)
Whatever your week has been like, let us talk about ALL OF THE NANO THINGS down in the comments below!
And while you’re at it, are you making sure to consume your daily percentage of cookies? Because if not I shall SLAP YOU IN THE FACE WITH A SLOPPY TOWEL, SIR.
As always, until next time. . .
*flings cookies in the air and disappears*
