Peeking in for impartial soundboarding

Poll #906045 NoWriMo Opinions

It's day 4 & only 3500 words, when a plague hits you (and two toddlers) and knocks you out of commission for a week. Do you:

Suck it up and finish 50,000 words by Jan 31 or fail
A real plague? I'd go ahead and extend my personal deadline to Feb 7
Give up all dreams of writing, because I suck and there is no hope for me
I'd do something much wittier than any of that

The wittier solution to your problem is:

~stealing from Greyweirdo~ You can now ask me a question (JaNo related or not):

What does your heart tell you to do?

No one is going to tell you that you suck. You don't suck! I can't believe you even put that as an option! It's not like you asked to be ill. No one said January was the only month you could do this... or that the thirty days had to be a calendar month. Why doncha just start over? and be sweet to yourself??

LOL Thanks! About the sucking thing, I think I just tend to do that when I write. I think most people have an inner editor. Mine is just louder and meaner (she does things like kill my muse and hide the body, or say things like Oh my god, Amanda, that should have been a semicolon; why do you even try? I can use semicolons; even your dumbass dog knows how to use semicolons. Give it up!)

Yeah, it's rough.

At any rate, thank you for the wonderful support. I think I really do feel an extension wouldn't be a cop-out, but part of me has that 'You're not really doing it if you don't finish when you said you would' mentality. My poll was my writing warm up for the day. I like polls. :D
