For Your Procrastination Pleasure #3

Writing Status: Well, I'm still struggling to get back on track for my 505,505 word goal for NaNoWriMo, so I won't be as active on all your blogs this month as I would have liked to have been. But I will be making the rounds come December.

So it’s been a few weeks, and you’ve probably been writing your little heart out. But, at this point, your brain might be starting to get cloudy and vague, if it hasn’t already. You may feel a bit like a zombie. That’s okay, you’re still a fearsome creature: 

Or not.
Either way, with your head turning all mushy and gross on you, the fictional world you’ve been living in is becoming your reality. Or maybe your reality is becoming fictional:

Oh no. GASP. And to make things worse, your characters are probably misbehaving and ruining all your lovely plans:

Speaking of music…

In keeping with the theme of this first song, your novel’s ending may seem beyond reach, and you might be begging the universe to shatter you so you won’t have to write anymore. Rest assured, this month will be over sooner than you think.

Just drink plenty of coffee, and you’ll be fine. Or, if you’re not convinced that coffee will help you write at this point, take a break and read these interesting facts about coffee. Or, you could check out some random tidbits on chocolate, if that’s more your speed. Oh, and here’s an article on the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon. Maybe you’ve heard of it before?

Discussion time, my little coffee beans. Did you like the funny videos? Do you have any musical suggestions of you own? Have you read any cool articles you’d like to share? If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, how is your novel coming along? Have you noticed I’ve been asking pretty much the same questions every week?


  1. THE CRAYON SONG :') I hope you manage to catch up with your word count :)

    1. I LOVE THE CRAYON SONG. And thank you! I didn't quite manage to catch up, but I did manage to finish better than I was beginning to think I would.

  2. LOL, I love these posts! Also, that chocolate article inspired me to track down and devour some dark chocolate. Thought you'd like to know.
    And Shatter Me is fantastic. Just discovered that today, but it is.


    1. Aww, thank you! I'm glad I could be an inspiration for you. :)

      Shatter Me is basically one of my favorite writing songs of ever because it's so dramatic and intense. I'm so glad you like it. :)
