That is NORMAL, particularly for your first NaPo, titanium. Would it help you to know that it doesn't get any easier as years go by?  ;)  This is my 12th, and I'm just as nervous as the first. Except now we have the pressure of making it entertaining and fun!

Seriously, you'll be fine. And what you'll learn from this will be priceless.  It's why I come back every year—there is NO feeling ( for a writer ) like completing a NaPo.  It's indescribable, and can only be experienced. But, more than that. . .is what you'll discover about yourself as a writer, and poetry in general.

Whereas once you sought perfection, now you understand the process of the poem is just that—a process, and it always has been.

Grab your protein pill and helmet cause it's almost showtime!
