The Day Before – NaNoWriMo 2016

largeToday 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.

#MyPentaholicStory

Hey loves,
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.

Mental Health Break

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.

Completing the #JustWriteIt Challenge

Wow! I did it!

I wrote 10,000 words in less than 30 days without any panic attacks, insomnia, too much chocolate bingeing or crying. Although to be honest, I did kill of way too many characters, after promising them they’d still be alive at the end of the game, and my mom is wondering where all the chocolate chips disappeared too.
