So I can write about a giant squid hitting on a bowl of milk and them having little baby chapstick children even though my book is about a teenage girl meeting a celebrity?

Nonononono. You write. It's abundantly possible that your theme isn't even your theme. You won't know what your real theme is until you finish your novel. So write randomly, make word count, and THEN go back and make everything make sense.

I feel like I need to stick with theme of my book. I don't know. maybe I'm wrong. maybe I'm missing the point, but I'm about 3,335 words behind schedule and I'm stuck because I want to write about my theme and my theme only but I'm not inspired. Should I just write randomly and try to make the goal or should I stick only to my theme running the risk of no making it to the goal. what should I do here? I haven't written in two days. Somebody help, please?

Got a thousand words to go before 10,000, bedtime, and finally hitting the 6-day target. One writing exercise I have found rewarding? Turn the radio to a station where you can easily recognize most of the songs. Begin a scene that includes a line, scenario, or theme form whatever song is playing, and continue it for the duration of the song. Switch to a completely new idea when the song changes. Repeat until goal is met.

You can do it, guys! @Alice Vega you're only behind by 4,335. You're half way there! @Jennie Rae Urban, 1735 isn't that bad. I have a friend who's only at 18. Not 18 hundred, JUST 18! You guys can do it! I believe in you, and so does everybody else on this page. Chin up! Tomorrow's another day. You'll get to a point where you start writing and you won't be able to stop. Don't worry. YOU ROCK!!

5,812 only a thousand-ish words before I can hit the sack! I feel like I should put something on my head to help me motivate me to sprint... okay, I have the medical disclaimer to the meds that are suppose to help kick this icky cold on my head. I feel better already.

Ugh, with all my school work, I have not been able to get ANY writing done. I doubt I will win this year.
