Return of the Necro Rhino!!

*Cue spooky music*


Okay, I’ll admit, perhaps that wasn’t the spookiest choice of music. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. But why the spooky music in the first place, you ask?? Because, today marks what I’m morbidly dubbing: The Return of the Necro Rhino!! Aka: Me not waiting until November to try again at NaNoWriMo’s (National Novel Writing Month) goal of writing 50,000 words in the span of 30 days.

The whole Necro Rhino thing is a play on words because my boyfriend and I refer to NaNoWriMo as “Nano Rhino“, as in “a very tiny rhinoceros” after he misheard me when I first told him I was participating in last year’s NaNoWriMo challenge and thought I’d said “Nano Rhino challenge”. This also resulted in us going on a very last minute, but very determined, shopping adventure at our local mall to find a tiny rhinoceros figurine to be my little mascot. This was not as easy to find as one would think, but after four stores we found a toy kit of assorted African animals, and it thankfully had two very small rhinos in it. I keep one at my place, and the other at his. They serve as my writing mascots (and reminders) because I am ridiculous like that. No shame here, folks. Since I didn’t make my goal back in November, I consider this second attempt to be the resurrection of the Nano Rhino, hence why it is now a Necro Rhino. That and I’m a silly girl who likes horror too much.

Anyway, I keep a dry erase board mounted on the wall next to my desk and I always update it with my monthly goals I wish to accomplish. Today I drew a freshly resurrected zombie rhino rising from the grave to mark this return to the madness that is NaNoWriMo. On a side note I google’d “Beast Boy rhino” hoping for drawing inspiration since his rhino form is green like a zombie rhino would be. Seems innocent enough, right? Well, the internet being what it is, I proceeded to have to scrub my eyeballs with bleach due to some fan art someone posted of Starfire and Beast Boy (in his damn rhino form) participating in some seriously cringe-inducing activities with one another.


So, now that I’ve no doubt seared that awful image into your brain, let’s continue, shall we? I know it’s not November, so it isn’t the official month or anything, but I’m using the next 30 days to try to attempt to write the 50,000 word goal just as I would if I waited for November to roll back around. That means I need to write at least 1,666 word each day. I’ll update my progress here throughout the month and still try to blog regular posts as much as I can, but please bare with me this month if my posts happen to be fewer and farther between. I really want to give this my all and make that 50,000 words happen this time!

This was all a very spur of the moment decision this morning when I was figuring out my writing goals for the month, but I hope to make the most of it!  🙂 Do you have any particular writing goals for yourself this month? Or do you prefer to wing it and let it happen as it happens? What is your biggest writing motivation? Best of luck to each of you with this months creative writing/blogging/reviews/etc. ❤

  1. Awesome you can do it! I need to set a writing goal because although I love blogging, I haven’t touched my story that I was writing since I began the blog lol. Guess it’s time to buckle down and get back to it. Good luck!

    1. Thank you! 😀 It’s definitely a challenge to write that many words in a day every day but I’m going to do my best! 🙂
      Best of luck to you with your writing as well! It can be difficult sometimes finding the time to blog regularly and work on a book. I can relate to that for sure. 😛 You got this though!!

  2. Nano rhino. I love it! And I love the Necro rhino counterpart. I always considered Nanowrimo a good goal to work to even I knew I’d never achieve it (1667 words a day is difficult to write!), but I’d always make some goal like “write every day” or “write a thousand words a day.” Good luck with it!

    1. Thanks! 🙂 Yeah, it is definitely proving difficult. lol So far so good though. All I can do is try to keep up the pace and hope for good writing days. 🙂
      I think your goals are great. 🙂 As long as we write every day we’re bound to improve our skills and get closer and closer to our long term goals.

  3. Haha I like the Rhino Mascot idea. My wife bought me a large plastic cow called Barry when we first met. I laughed and asked her why she bought it for me? She said because she knew I’d laugh and love her a little bit more for it. All true and that’s one more reason why I married her. Good luck with this! I also like the fact that you have a board where you put up your goals etc.
