It's 8:35PM on a school night, which means I have to get off the computer in 55 minutes. To win NNWM, I would have to write 17,169 more words. This means that I would have to type at over 312 WPM in order to finish on time.

*sigh* My only chance at being creative enough to participate in NaNoWriMo, and I blew it by procrastinating too much.

GAME OVER

Doot-doot-doot, doot-doot-doot-doot, doot doot doot... (that's supposed to be the game over music from Super Mario Galaxy & Super Mario Galaxy 2)

I'm still gonna write Moya's Space Log for y'all, though!

I don't know a whole lot of people who completed NaNo on their first go. I KNOW I did worse than that on my first try! My record was something like 20,000, which I am immensely proud of. I considered trying this year, but I just didn't have the time.
So I'd say that 7831 is pretty cotton-picking incredible. YAY FOR YOU.

Thanks! :)

I know a lot of people didn't complete NNWM on their first try, but the thing of it is, I'm so uncreative most of the time (even this novel isn't that creative compared to most fanfiction I've read) that this was probably my only chance to participate in NaNoWriMo. :(

Eh, creativity schmeativity (. . .), you don't have to be creative to write. It's all just words, really. That's what makes NaNo such a great exercise.

But had I entered NNWM without accidentally coming up with an idea beforehand, the end result would just be:

That's when you start playing Truth or Dare in the forums. That's how your characters end up robbed by pirates!

Eh, while I've seen the Dare Machine on the front page and some of the dares are pretty funny, I prefer to write when I come up with an awesome idea, rather than just for the sake of writing. That's just the way I am, I guess.

Hey, you worked really hard on it. And at least you wrote something! I didn't write anything and maybe I should have, but I procrastinated so much that I didn't even get started on anything. That doesn't mean you won't have an idea for next year's!

Also, have you done NNWM before?

Nope! I procrastinate too much.

No, I mean, have you ever at least started it?

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
