NaNoWriMo & School: The Odious Balance Task!!!!

I’ve been home schooled my entire life and never really had to balance out several subjects.
For example: I don’t have a science yet and the stuff I do know is probably from TV. But!- in a bout three months I will be studying for CLEP …Biology?-Chemistry?- anyway one of those. I did not have a History lesson until recently and I did not have a formal or really any type of English studies, but I did study English seriously( at the beginning of this year). I had mathematics and language arts ( basically grammar and vocabulary) and that was about it. It wasn’t exactly arduous to balance out those two subjects.
So!- you will know what I’m talking about when I say that I am getting stressed the hell out!
I have two SAT subject test I’m studying for plus the SAT and I’m struggling with the math part. And I have zero confidence about my essay. I have to look over my brother’s studies because apparently he does not think it is relevant! (he’s twenty).
NaNoWriMo is hardly soothing the tension in my neck at the moment, as you can probably tell by now with my little out burst.
I really reaaaaally want to tell WriMo to kick rocks but I’m kinda liking the challenge and hey, according to my mother “I’m gonna have to learn how to manage this stuff when I get to college”.
Who am I to complain!?!
So it is day three and I currently have 1875 words so far. I have a system to how many words I know I can have in a certain amount of time so I’m not that worried.
I mean, face it, I was planning on taking those subject test over again in June. The subject test can bear with me on this.

Oh don’t worry your pretty head about me and my delusions…
How are you guys doing in NaNoWriMo?- have you dumped it yet? or are you still working on that stubborn plot? Or are you right on schedule and possibly ahead! And the most important question…
Are you having F.U.N?!?

  1. > And I have zero confidence about my essay.
    It’s been a while since I took the SATs and wrote the essay portion, but if I recall correctly, the key is to have a solid point and prove it with VERY SPECIFIC examples. Don’t flip flop or try to defend the other side too much and stick to your guns. This will most probably earn you a 9-10 at the minimum.

    And 1875 is a good start! Don’t give up! Don’t think too hard about what you’re writing. Head over to and participate in some word wars. A few of those will catch you up real quick and then you won’t feel so stressed about about NaNo until you wake up tomorrow and have more writing to do 😉
