Motivation/Consequences: Beth Vs. NaNo

So, I took a break from writing yesterday, as I usually do on Sundays. BUT I did some plotting. And I did some more plotting today. And I am so excited I can’t even…I think that’s why I accidentally wrote two NaNoWriMo posts and, er, posted them. Oops. Forgive me? Please?

Here’s a picture of a blue crab to make up for it:

But now I need some motivation to finish NaNoWriMo. I’ve done it three or so times (not including Camp NaNoWriMo), but have never quite made it to the required 50,000 words before December 1st. SO. If I…fall short this year…there needs to be consequences. Fun consequences, because that’s how I roll.

MOTIVATION.

What should happen, should I fail to write 50k next month? These are your options:

A) I’ll do an audio reading of the first page of my middle grade project “How NOT to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse”

B) I’ll read the song of your choosing in either an awful Irish, French, Cockney, English, or Russian accent.

C) A free e-copy of In a Pickle to one random commenter

And now I’ve written yet another post about NaNoWriMo.

  1. While A sounds like fun, it’s B that’s getting the gears in my brain a’turning. Howzabout “Sweet Dreams are Made of These” in gosh-awful Russian accent. >:}
