Why Can’t 42,000 Words Be a Novel?

This is it my friends.

Friday, November 30th is the last day of NaNoWriMo. We have three days to get our collective arse in gear and finish this stupid idea.

If you don’t see a post from me after November, I am killed. But I will recover soon and provide a synopsis on why the Nano-word-leech lies and hurts families.

Not participating in Nano? Take some time and congratulate yourself.

The rest of you, barf words.

If you non-nano-ers aren’t too busy with your ample leisure time, visit the blogs below and heckle. A few are over achievers and have stayed on track, so be extra mean to them.

  1. I did a quick calculation – if I’d have written the same amount of words as the total of all my blog posts, I’d have a full sized novel. 0_o

    you can do this! (easy for me to say because I’m not doing it)

  4. Nice people who really deserve jelly doughnuts don’t sic non-NaNoWriMo people on the other competitors.

    I heckled Mandaray as instructed, and Mandaray said to say hello. Just so ya know.

  6. So that’s where all the increased traffic came from!! Thanks!! :-)

    But seriously, I’m envious of my writing buddies who are already way past 50,000, and I’m going to be joining them if not tonight, then tomorrow. :-p

    Hang in there!! :-)

    Hemingway proved that a mere six words makes a novel, so there. I have derailed completely, as all three kids and myself had the flu all last week. I’ll have to write 20K in two days to still make it.

  8. Now that NaNo is almost over, it’s time to start thinking about December, or as I’ve named it NaNoRevMo, National Novel Revision Month!! Yay! The fun has only begun! Just when you thought you couldn’t stand another day of working on your project, you get to dissect it, edit it, and have anxiety over all of the problems you see! Please kill me now.

  9. Hey, Peter. I see you made it to the Winner’s Circle! Congratulations!!

    Oh, you made it! Congratulations!
