Yes, I based this entire post off of this gif.
Because… Johnny Depp… And the looks on their faces…
If this gif doesn’t cheer you up, friends, then I’m sorry to say that you are quite possibly dead.
And did I mention that it sums up exactly how I’m feeling just now, in the wake of NaNo madness?
My novel being the jar of dirt. Obviously.
So it’s a metaphor, see? Because I’m smart like that.
Essentially, I am quite proud of what I accomplished.
But it is, nonetheless, a jar of dirt.However, I do believe his next line is, “And guess what’s inside it?”
The answer to that question – or so poor, deluded Johnny believes – is the heart of Davy Jones.
For me, it’s the heart of my story.
It’s in there! Somewhere… buried rather deeply, perhaps, but fear not, friends, it is there.
So NaNo was a success?
How did NaNo go for you? Are you happy with how it went? Do you feel like you captured the heart of your story? Is it deeply buried? Do you feel like it’s just a jar of dirt?
