Look at it this way - you know that stupid cunt that wrote Twilight? Or that stupid cunt that wrote Twilight fanfiction and turned it into 50 Shades of Grey? THOSE SLAGS MADE MONEY OFF UTTER SHIT. Let that be a lesson for you. If they can be successful despite having no writing skills of note, there's no reason for anyone out there to be reluctant.
I'm falling behind on NaNoWriMo as well. I'm forcing myself to stay up all night tonight to get caught up, only in the comfort of my own home so that if I start crying over the fact that snakes are just tails with faces because I'm so fucking tired, nobody will think I'm stoned (my parents are used to my sleep-deprived ravings at three in the morning).
I won't touch energy drinks, though. My stomach disagrees with them and instead of being up all night writing I'll be up all night puking my skeleton out. Tea is where it's at, yo.
