I laughed at this–more than once. Seriously, every time I go look at it I laugh again. And sometimes just thinking about it makes me laugh with delight. Partly because it reminds me of faces that one of my cousins used to make when we were little, and partly because I am just silly and punch drunk at this point in the NaNo Game. As evidenced by my latest excerpt (click the “novel info” tab). This one was based on a couple of dares. I don’t know if it will make the final cut, but it gave me some giggles.
I participated in more word wars.
I shouted “CAN’T TALK, TYPING!!!” at the hubster when he came in my room during a word war. He has been making fun of me ever since. At least he is still speaking to me.
I passed 41,000 words.
So, for those of you who are struggling with your words, or your word count, or whatever, Scott Westerfeld and Justine Larbalestier have been tag-teaming posts with NaNo tips on their blogs. Some of them are brilliant, check them out!
