I hate my nano story so much right now, there aren't even words.


Okay, I take it back. I don't hate it, because "hate" implies emotion, which is what I lack in regards to this story. I don't care about it, I don't care what happens - I don't know what happens - and I kind of want to junk all eleven thousand words of the damn thing.

But I tell myself that the point wasn't to write something GOOD, it was just to write every day; that I'm cultivating good writing habits; that all the bunnies that keep coming out of the woodwork in my brain - you know, the ones for interesting stories - are a good thing, and that someday I'll be able to write them.

Most of all, I tell myself that I've given up on just about every single difficult thing I've ever been faced with, and that I refuse to let myself give up on this.

It would, however, help if my mother would stop asking me if I'm planning to get "my book" published once I'm done writing it. NO, MOM, I AM NOT. IF I CAN MANAGE TO READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE THING EVEN ONCE WITHOUT DEVELOPING A SPONTANEOUS ANEURYSM, IT'LL BE A MIRACLE.

CHAPTER THREE:

Mmkay, so, the Impala and the turkoyze car have driven off into the LAKE which is MAGICKAL, only Dean and Sammy don't know that, so they are WORRIED, well mostly Dean is worried and he's like "OMG my car it is going to get all WET and the interior will be RUINED plus I think I left my SANDWICH in there," and Sam is all "HOW ARE WE GOING 2 GET ANYWHERE AND WHERE ARE WE ANYWAY AND EXCUSE ME, BUT THAT WAS MY SANDWICH" and then Harry Potter shows up and tells them where they are and all that stuff.

BUT! Meenwile, the CARS drive down into the LAKE, where the ANGLIA (bcuz that is what the TURKOYSE car IS, I totally looked it up in the book, okay, on the DVD case, have you seen those books they are really LONG) introduces the Impala to all the MERMAIDS and MERMAID!BOYS, and there is this one rilly hot mermaid who Dean would totally try to mack on but anyway this is about the car, sorry, its just that Dean is so HAWT, so the rilly hot mermaid is all 'EEEEeeeeEEEEEsqueeakysquealEEEEEEIIIEEEEIIIIOOOO' and the Impala is all 'vroomity!' and then it decides to go look around and finds a mysteerius door that has a GIANT SNAKE engraved on it, and all of a sudden IT STARTS TO CREAK OPEN!!!

THE ROAD SO FAR:

Totally Necessary Introduction and Summary

CHAPTER TWO:

So Dean and Sam and the Impala are right outside these crumbly old gates, and Dean is all "whatever, this sucks, lets find some girlz!!" and Sammy is all "NO DEAN MAYBE THEIR IS INTRESTING STUFF HERE" and the Impala is all "vrrrroooom!" and then they hear a NOISE and they look over past the crubbly old gates and they see ANOTHER CAR driving right TOWARDS THEM and it is TURKOYSE.

And so Dean is thinking 'OMG I could totally fix that up' and the Impala HEARS HIM becuz they share a PSYCHIC LINK, and she (pfft, the car is so totally a girl, like NE1 doesn't know that) gets all MAD and JELLUS, and Sammy is all "OH NOES DEAN WHAT HAVE YOU DONE NOW" and Dean is all "bwuh?" and the car STOMPS OFF on her TIRES TYRES and that other strange TURKOYZE car goes WITH HER and the last thing the Brothers see is BOTH CARS and they are headed towards a LARGE BODY.

Of WATER.

I am absurdly excited about this single-digit percentage of progress. (No, really. *grins*)


For those of you following along at home, let me bring you up to date.

The Summary and Header (Must Read First!)

Chapter One (Reader's Digest Version):

Sammy and Dean, in the Impala, drive through the Lincoln Tunnel and come out on the other side...OF THE OCEAN!!1! After meandering (in a tough, macho, growly [or 'grouwley,' if you want the British spelling] way) across the louvely British countryside, the three ouf them (OF COURSE I AM COUNTING THE CAR AS ONE OF THEM, DUH) arrive outside the mouldy stoune gates ouf what lououks like an ould ruin.

BUT IS IT???!??!?/?@

read the rest! )

which puts me about 1000 short of where I need to be.

*sigh* It's too horribly pathetic to fail at this on the first day.
