9 Things That Will Be Totally Forgotten When NaNoWriMo Begins Tonight

National Novel Writing Month challenges writers to create a 50,000 word novel in just four weeks, so what needs to be trimmed to keep up the pace?

1. The Internet

Ah yes, Buzzed, I shall not be wasting time with YOU in the next few weeks. Ooh! Wait! Which Pride and Prejudice character am I?

2. Reading

Pah, the inferior words of "published authors", they will only distract me from my goal. But suddenly I'm very glad that no authors I love are releasing new books this month because that would literally be torture.

3. Proper Nutrition

Wait, are you saying that I can't survive entirely on chocolate bars and microchips for a month? Looks like I need to pay a roommate to feed me again this year.

4. Exercise

Unless I get a treadmill desk, I'm going to be getting very out of shape this month. Not helped by the previous point about diet. Time to blob out!

5. Friends

Friends? Ha! More like "people who distract from my novel". What do I need them for anyway!

(Note to my friends: Please still be there when December rolls around!)

6. Hair Care and Beauty

Probably showing my own personal tastes here but when I've got 1,600 words to write a day, sitting in a chair for hours just eats into my time too much. Need to do a deal with my hair and nails so they'll just stop for the next month

7. Penmanship

Oh wow, did I write those notes last night? What am I even trying to- what does this even mean?

8. Spelling

You know what, we have a language that's the bastard child of everyone who felt like invading England on a dull Sunday and I won't worry about it this month!

9. Sleep

Sleep will no longer darken my door. I CAN DO EVERYTHING!

For all newbies to NaNoWriMo, the crash usually hits in week 3. Be prepared and good luck!
