Nanowrimo Love Letters: Infatuation

Love and Nano are both complicated, but Abigail is sure this infatuation is the real deal.



Dearest NaNoWriMo,


Words cannot describe the way I feel about you. I pray that you will bear with me as I give it my best effort.

We’ve known each other for little over a week, but already I feel a special connection. Each day my fondness grows stronger, with every passing moment, with every added word.

My family and friends say I’ve lost my marbles. But I can’t help myself. From the moment I wake in the morning to the moment I close my eyes at night, our story is on my mind.

I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. I scribble little love notes on napkins and gum wrappers. I stare out the window deep in thought when I should be scrubbing the dishes. I find myself talking out loud in public places, conversing with imaginary voices in my head.

Because of you, the world is a brighter place. Everywhere I go, I’m reminded of you. From the coffee shop to the library, I see you reflected in the faces of writers typing away at their keyboards.

I cannot sing your praises enough. You’re well read, devouring tens of thousands of novels each year. You’re generous, donating millions to a great cause. You’re well-traveled, with homes on six continents. You’re a fashion icon, the only one I know who can pull off a Viking helmet.

Your friends are so cool. I can’t believe you actually know authors Daniel José Older, Alexander Chee, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Maggie Stiefvater, and Jenny Han!

But most of all, you’re such a good listener, someone who’s there for me any time of the day or night. I don’t know how you do it. It’s as if you had 500,000 voices ready to cheer me on with words of advice and encouragement.

Nano, I apologize if this comes out as a bunch of rambling, word-count-cramming, nonsense. But I couldn’t hold this back any longer: Nano, I love you! Say you love me too. I know we can build a beautiful story together.

Forever yours,

Abigail Dunard
