The Final Countdown

Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must mention a dark night, your fridge, and tears (of joy or sadness; your call). Feel free to switch one ingredient if you have to (or revisit one from previous trio prompts).

So as I write this post, I am aware that the counter on my blog is counting down the hours (and eventual last minutes and seconds) before NaNo Kicks off and then the battle for my first COMPLETED novel begins; I must say I am both excited and anxious. Not anxious in a negative way but in a “I’m sure I can really do this but my plot isn’t complete and I need this and that and that too…” kind of thing.

I imagine sitting at my desk on the 30th of November, as the evening draws into a dark night, far darker than I’d expect it to be. The moonless sky stares at me, reminding me that the hours are moving, minutes are passing…seconds are ticking. Each unnecessary trip to the fridge to rummage for that snack I know does not exist wastes more time – and my rather unfounded excuse, that the walk between my computer and the fridge is the reason I do not exercise, fails to the excuse me should I fail once again. And then its the tears, of sadness, as I drown my sorrow in fruit Tea and gaming.

As my friend and fellow blogger Tyrone said to me last night while we were talking writing and stuff,

“Tomorrow (today) is your last lazy day dude…just remember.”

Which I appreciated because 1) He knows I’m doing NaNo and is supporting me on this endeavour. 2) He wants me to uninstall my games (I told him no haha) and he said he’d hold me accountable should he see me online playing a game and I haven’t reached my daily quota. 3) I have people backing me up with NaNo from my Joburg peeps (Shout out to NaNo Johannesburg – Look forward to our first write in tomorrow!)  to a fellow NaNo writer over at Spilled Ink to another fellow writer who has recently started following my blog who has great insight on writing Joshua M Swenson

I am so looking forward to tomorrow’s Write-In and know this is going to be a great NaNo event! To all of you participating, good luck, write hard and put your all in to it!
