Week 2 Battle Plan

Week 2 Battle Plan

11-8-17

Hello NaNoLansing Superwriters,

This is Cat from Mission Control with an important announcement for you.

Together, our words have crushed Max Perfect and sent him off for the rest of the month! Well done! We couldn’t have done this without our combined efforts. Things are definitely looking up in our battle for Word Domination!

But Week 2 brings with it one of the worst villains of the Illiterasee – Lord Bloque! He has even made his way into Mission Control and I’ve had to battle his forces of evil. Lord Bloque is a tricky fellow. Also known as the Blank Lord of Oblivion and Quantum Unending Existentialism, he sweeps in to make us feel like we couldn’t write a novel if our life depended upon it. The Illiterasee know that we are the most vulnerable to Bloque’s influence during the week 2 slump.

How does he affect us? Let me tell you my story. This morning I looked at my manuscript and wanted to chuck it out the window. I hated my characters, couldn’t find where the story should go and stared at my computer screen for a half hour without typing. Even a word war set up by our friendly bot, Timmy in our regional chatroom couldn’t shake the feeling like it was hopeless. I couldn’t write. Why was I bothering? What was it all for anyway? But then I realized it was Lord Bloque coming to thwart my efforts and I wasn’t going to let him win!

Don’t you let him win either. If you can get through the week 2 blahs, it will get better. This is only the Illiterasee trying to win in the war for Word domination. Together we can kill off this evil villain too. But we have to keep writing!

So what can we do to beat Lord Bloque?
