Dang The Peer Pressure


NaNoWriMo is an abbreviation for National Novel Writing Month. You can find the link online at http://www.nanowrimo.org. Apparently November is the month set aside for this task. The challenge: write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.

Most regulars here at LWC are well aware of this challenge as several have chosen to attempt the project. I really don’t have time for this. I don’t have an idea for a plot, and haven’t really given any thought to character development. So it would be crazy for me to get involved.

But sometimes I’m an idiot.

So I officially signed up. And tonight I just sat down and started typing.

No promises on completion, though!

[i]Also – With such a lack of planning, I’m pretty nervous that it’s all gonna be pretty much nonsense and I’m feeling a bit self-conscious, so…I’m back dating all the posts two years to keep them off of my “home-page” and hopefully off of the LWC main page. In fact, the only way you should end up reading this is if you happen to stumble into the category link on the right side of my blog. And for now, that’s quite alright with me.

Also, also – since the order of posts on this blog tends to be according to date, I’m fudging all the days of the month so that they stay in chronological order. Yeah, it’s confusing, I know! 😀

I wrote this on November 2, 2006.[/i]

[b]11/3/06 – 8:40 am UPDATE: Yeah, okay, well…I got up this morning after a short night’s rest and decided that the whole back dating thing was pointless, really. Then I checked back in at my sight and found that Clint pretty much thinks the same. So concerning the last couple of paragraphs above, I will attempt my best Gilda Ratner impression –

    Welcome to the club. 🙄

    Peer pressure? What pressure? What peers? 😆

    re: the back-dating thing…
    That’s confusing. You should read [url=http://www.quotationspage.com/quote/27150.html]this quote[/url] from Sir Walter Scott…. 😉

    except that i didn’t bother to make “tuffy4host.com” last night, and so by the time i’m able to, it’ll likely be far too late.

    yeah. I have no plot either. but I’m just being “unofficial” anyways. and I’m cheating. I got a friend to write alternate pargraphs/chapters with me. 😛 i’m writing the first thing that comes to mind–just to get something more that 2 chapters written.

    —and no editing. editing always did me in. I always thought whatever I wrote was such trash, I never finished.
    and it probably was trash, but I’d like to see some finished trash so I can be amused.

    Hey, the more LwCers that sign up the more stories we all have to keep up with and ultimately… a built in excuse for only writing 49,000 words 😎
