Dropping out of NaNo. :(

So I think this graphic explains it all...



I've just had no writing mojo AT ALL for weeks. Oh, well. Maybe next year.

I do want to get the BBT fic done before I write my Yuletide assignment. We'll see. :)

Oh, hon. *hugs tight* I totally hear ya' on not having the ficcish mojo. Mine evaporated a bit after I posted my STBB fic, so there was defintely no point in even attempting the MINI-nano. :/

But hey, you can join us non-participants in cheering on everyone else, so there's a silver lining. :p

Yes, I definitely need to start doing that - cheering those people on. :)

I'm still so bouncy about Yuletide, so I think that will give me the push I need. Plus I had Merlin/Morgana plot bunnies this morning... :D But darn it, gotta finish the other fic, first.

It'll probably come around soon. You just have to give it time.

I really don't know where it went... but I hope to find it again soon! :(

Thank you! I hope yours starts to go better really soon! I'm very disappointed in myself, but eh. I just never came up with a good plot. *hugs*

I'm so sorry to hear this, I know it's disappointing, as I've so been there myself.

Yeah, I'm trying not to get too down on myself. I have been super-busy with modding a community and making icons, so I'd have to give one or both of those up to write. Just can't. :)

Aww, sorry hon! I was thinking about doing it, but I'm in the middle of my book, and the FF muse is all in my head right now!!

*hugs* Good luck with your other projects.

Next year??!! :D:D

Yeah, when I do have a muse it's for all the wrong projects, lol. And yes, hopefully next year I can do it again! :)

I never do NaNo because I know my muses will tell me to eff-off if I force them into it.

I also take a class every Fall so I don't have the time to devote to it.

Well, I won last year, but I also had a full-fledged idea. This year? Nada. Maybe next time, when I'm not so involved in other projects (like icons and comms). :)

Awwwwww :(

*hugs*

I like your attitude, though - there's always a next year! :)

*hugs back*

I gotta be hopeful, otherwise I'd never try again. I did win it once, so I know I have it in me... just have to prepare better next time. :)

I am NaNo deficient. Never been able to do it.

BTW, have you gotten your Yuletide assignment yet? I'm hoping my spam mail didn't eat it if they've been sent out.

I can do it, but this year... eh. Couldn't get it together.

No, the signups are still going on until Thursday. They'll probably send out assignments next weekend. I'm impatient, though!

I'm more or less dropping out too. I have no hope of reaching 50K, so I'm writing what I can and that's it.:)

It's funny. After I made that decision, I actually wrote 1000 words today! I guess with the pressure off, my mojo crept back a little. :)

And now we can be dropouts together! :)

Awww, it'll happen if it's meant too. If I was doing it for the first time, I'd be dropping by now or earlier. Real life seems tougher this year. *hugs*

Yeah, this isn't the first time, but this year certainly seems busier than last... oh well. I'll try again later! *hugs back*
