Today is the last day of NaNoWriMo Prep and both excitement and fear twist in my gut. My outline is a series of barely there scraps and my mind has been scattered these past few days – I’ve been plagued with mounting attacks of anxiety and fear. I’m tired, my eyes threaten to fold as I write this and I still have a long day in front of me.
The clock is already ticking, I fear failure.
So getting to be a part of this loving Pentaholic family is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. PTX has helped me through many tough times, and I know that they have also helped so many amazing people I got to know through them and I am blessed to call them my friends.
Every single one of us has a different story to share about how we came into this wonderful PTX family and how they have impacted us and made our lives happier, better even. So on October 24th I want to ask you to that you use #MyPentaholicStory and share that special story! For this hashtag, you can write or make a video telling your very unique story about how you got to know PTX, joined the fandom, or a difficult time they have helped you through.
I hope by using this hashtag we can all get to know each other a bit better and it might even show how much we have in common. It’s a great way to show how far we’ve come. 🙂 – Wynn
I remember it as if it were yesterday. My mom came into the living-room all excited, her arms flailing and her brown face lit like a Christmas tree. She babbled about some a-capella group and I wasn’t interested, I was ‘busy’ on the computer and I didn’t appreciate the interruption. After a few moments of impatient gesticulation I let her take over the desktop computer. Pentatonix, Mary Did You Know.
Last night I had a really, really bad anxiety attack and because of it I got really paranoid and did a bunch of stuff that was really stupid. So I’m taking a break from tumblr and twitter (as much of my social media as I can) until I can get my senses back and I recover.
I dont know what triggered the attack and since I haven’t had one this bad in a couple years I think it’s best that I take a break from all of my social media.
I’ll still be doing NaNoWriMo (I will not, however, complete this month’s #JustWriteIt Challenge) and I’ll still be writing poetry/lyrics but I will not be publishing any of it on Wattpad or Tumblr. My PTX acounts and blogs do have posts and stuff queued for you guys and my official tumblr (@elisalromagnoli) also has a few queued posts too.
