National Novel Writing Month!

I've Gone Wild

Thu Apr 16, 2015, 10:52 AM
Yeah, that's pretty much exactly what it sounds like. I'm at 81,000 words and counting. I've ignored my dA inbox for a couple weeks, my email inbox is stacking up, and the gaming forum I play on is worse. If you were hoping I was doing something, I'm sorry, I've basically put my entire life on hold until I finish April. When I hit my original 20K word goal I was happy, 50K and I was ecstatic, now 80K and I'm frantically hoping I can continue at a reasonable pace to finish what's looking like a 120K-word novel by the end of the month. That would be awesome, but I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop...

Ciao till May 1st (or more realistically, 2nd)!

Somebody tell Murphy (of the infamous Law) that whatever he thinks I said about his mother, it wasn't me.

10k, Hurrah!

Yes, I am celebrating my first major milestone in this month's Camp NaNoWriMo, though I will admit that at least some of this material I had considered before now and a couple scenes were attempted some time ago. So I probably haven't written 10,000 new words, but I don't care. Hurrah!

I wish to continue this inspiration streak, so I'm going to propose a chat event on Wednesday. Points will be thrown around, so you'd better not miss out! As only one person replied to my poll about chat event times, I'm going to just pick a time and hope you all can come join me. This Wednesday I'm only available in the afternoon, so that's what y'all get.

Who: you all
What: a few rounds of word wars and general write-in
When: Wednesday April 8th at 3pm EDT (What time is that for me?)
Where: #MotleyMusings for lack of better locale
Why: because one week of WriMo is past and we ought to get psyched for week two!

Everyone is welcome regardless of whether you're participating in one event, another, or no events at all. Just come and have some fun writing with us, and maybe win some points!

Only to the envelope! (I suck at opening those)

Heh. They're not really important, even if I do prove my nerdiness and seal it with wax. (Which I've inspired at least inknalcohol to do with his mail, too, and I'm pretty sure he inspired others since then, as I've seen a picture of one of his skull and crossbones seals show up on dA with a "look what I got, I'm getting one of these!" message. :giggle:)
