The Allotting of The Dares // The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad Wrap-Up Video(s)

good morning, cyberspace!

Well, folks. You know what this is.

A long, long, looooong time ago, I promised you all a video of my face handing out the NaNoWriMo Dare Squad dares to all us losers. And though it took many months and a few outtakes during the Q&A section (don’t get your hopes up, peasants. they have been deleted), I have finally gotten over my fear of talking to literally no one and have created the video.

Or, shall I say, videos, because for some reason I can’t figure out how to merge them. Aha.

But anyway, here you go, my friends. The first video is the Q&A, in which I answer all of the questions you lovely folks sent in to me (I think I forgot to say thank you for sending in questions in the video, so I’m just gonna fling a giant THANK YOU!!!!! at all of your faces right here instead. . . *flings thanks at your face*), and the second video is the actual allotting of the dares, in which the video quality is poor, the editing out of flubbed up words is even poorer, and during which you can see (if you squint hard enough) the fact that I was too lazy to erase my first effort at jotting down some Dare Squadian names on my scrap paper, and so I decided to just cross them out like some sort of weird hitlist instead. #normal

I promise I’m not trying to murder you, guys.

But anyway. Here you go, peasants. Enjoy watching me flail and make a fool of myself! *thumbs up*

(also for anyone who is wondering — no. i am never making another video like this ever again. i am a blogger, not a youtuber, and i think that fact is extremely apparent at this point.)

EDIT NOTE: Apparently WordPress will not allow me to just post the video like a normal person, so I had to upload the videos to YouTube. #FUNTIMES Fortunately for me, I was able to keep them unlisted so that virtually no one will ever be able to find them, so here you guys go! I’ve also got the names and dare numbers listed down below, so even if you don’t want to watch the videos through completely, you can just skippity skip down to the bottom of this page and check out which dare you got!

(oh! one other thing. when i say “bad dares” near the beginning of this video, what I’m really trying to say is “super embarrassing dares”. when i’m nervous i just kind of ramble and fail to word properly. so. yeah. fun times.)

The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad Season Two Dare Board



TALK TO ME, PEASANTS

Well. This was properly horrifying. I’m actually not all that comfortable with posting videos of myself onto the internet, but I mean? New year, new experiences, amiright? (this is never happening ever again, oh my word) Hopefully I’ll be able to sleep tonight without having a panic attack. . .

BUT ANYWAY! How about you guys? How have you all been? I’m assuming this post means I’m back from my Hiatus, so let’s talk about all of the glorious things you’ve been doing, shall we? And as for all you NaNoWriMo Dare Squadians out there. . .what do you think of the results for the Dare Squad? I’m actually pretty excited with the one I got (I believe I also failed to mention that mine was submitted by the lovely Eva. . .), and I am EXTREMELY stoked to see what all of my fellow losers do with the dares they’ve received!!! I hope all of you are having the very happiest of New Years, and here’s hoping this video is not the end of my existence here on earth. Aha. *nerves*

As always, until next time. . .

*flings cookies in the air and disappears*

The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad – Season Two! // some basic info,dare board reveals, and a few smol polls for y’olls

good morning, cyberspace!

Today is a very exciting day for me, you guys! NaNoWriMo — the single-most glorious writing event of the entire year — is finally returning! In just 8 short days (or less or more, depending on where you live in this great, big, beautiful world), writers from all over the planet are going to whip out their pens, their pencils, their notebooks, their laptops, their clay tablets, their typewriters and write 50,000 words in a single month.

Or, you know. . .as many words as you’d like to write, I suppose. There is no judgement here, folks.

Some of us will be rebels. Some of us will be traditionalists. Some of us will go above and beyond and pump out a whopping 100k in less than thirty days. (I will not be among these few, of course.) Some of us will fail. Some of us will win.

However, no matter what this month looks like for you — whether you’re writing 50k or 30 — I want this NaNoWriMo to be one that none of us will ever forget. And how do I plan to do this, you ask?

Easy. We’re going to be playing a game.

And if you happened to be among those who read my last blog post, you will know exactly which game I’m talking about. . .

That’s right, folks! Today we’re going to be talking about ALL OF THE THINGS pertaining to the NaNoWriMo Dare Squad!Read More »
