Thanks America. At Least I Will Finish My Book.

Dear America,

You hurt me yesterday. You hurt me real bad. You didn’t kill me but I definitely have a limp today.  I’m not mad though. Well, yeah, actually I am mad, but I am channeling my frustration into my NaNoWriMo project. I’m writing a book that I’m pretty sure will make a lot of political and historical stuff more clear. If you read it. The best part is that the book is about political definitions and historical examples and not about your side or my side. Yay! This will benefit us all. I promise. If you read it. So, I guess what I’m trying to say is thank you for really upsetting me yesterday, you have given me new focus and determination to finish my book. It’s like, when people have to complete impossible feats because their family has been kidnapped and will be killed if they don’t. This is a lot like that. You kidnapped my optimism and are threatening to kill my hope- so I WILL finish this book to prevent that from happening. Thanks for the motivation.

Love,

Girl on the Contrary

P.S. Even if you kill my hope it won’t really die because my hope is like a zombie.

  1. Way to turn lemons into lemonade! I actually started nanowrimo again this year, but I found the election results disheartening. Maybe you will be an inspiration for me to carry on nevertheless.

    I think I’ll need a couple of Hopelike Zombies first, though.

    1. I have got to create a drink called hopelike zombies! I’m pretty disheartened myself but I am definitely trying to focus on my writing to carry me through it. Good luck with NaNoWriMo!!!

    Haha, so weird, I was just wondering if Girl on the Contrary was beast enough to do NaNoWriMo! Obviously you are, and therefore have earned congrats from me. ; ) Me and a friend of mine are doing it too.
