  1. Note: I’m putting this here because the folks on the linked blog above can only deal with comments that promote self-love.

    The one reason I hate NaNoWriMo: Overachievers and their need to brag about it. Actually, one in particular – a friend of mine who has completed the NaNo challenge multiple times.

    Now I know that being driven to succeed is a laudable thing but as a chronic underachiever, I can’t stand it. It’s the same reason I can’t stand reading lists about what books someone read any particular week. In the time it took me to slog through fifty pages, they’ve read twenty-six books. I don’t even know how it’s possible to read twenty-six books in a single week. It makes me depressed. Same thing with NaNoWriMo. It’s not enough that someone writes three novels in the time it takes me to write the first sentence, they have to brag about it as well. Constantly updating me on word counts and goals and all night sessions and outlines and plot holes and character development and… I mean, really. It’s like sitting down to play Scrabble with a book editor. They’re popping out crazy scores and I’m placing “cat”, “dog” and “the” on the board.

    If I didn’t know better, I’d think NaNoWriMo was invented by the same people who founded Mensa. It’s just a way for geniuses to shove their overachieving annoyance down my throat every chance they get.
