The yearly ritual frenzy

I am doing NaNoWriMo this year. Because I am insane. (To be fair, you could probably append that to every statement I make about my thoughts or actions.)

I'm not even going to talk about how much I've written so far, except that if I revise my daily goal slightly upwards to 2,000 words, which is a nice round number with no nasty repeating decimals, I can totally still win. I am strictly avoiding any kind of historical fiction and instead writing a nice story about middle school girls in New York City. Who joyride dragons. And are kind of really gay for each other.

I'm kind of liking it so far.

Meanwhile, I get to follow laislabevita's novel, which is basically composed of pure awesome. She is the Dave Barry of Philadelphia, people. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say anything else, but a.) I have a cameo, sort of, and b.) it is going to be so awesome.

I don't know why but I started one? Not very far at all and it may have been out of the fever sickness, but it was just as ill-planned as NaNo ever is.
Sometimes when I try to explain NaNoWriMo to people I say that it's like drugs! Except totally legal! And then at the end you have a book-like object!
I generally explain it to a lot of people, and then don't do it. And neither do they. So it's like the government!
Really gay like explicit gay or implicit gay? Like Jerry Jenkins Left Behind or like MY Left Behind?
There's already serious subtext to all their interactions and we're still in chapter one. I don't know how long I can keep them from making out with each other.

I have founded an organization for you. It is called NaHoBoWriMo, in which everyone* has to write something as long as it includes Ho-Bob.

*Defined here as "you".
In the Grand Scale of Things What Concern Me, this ranks below 'zombiepocalypse', but above 'cheese becomes sentient, destroys us all'. YMMV. :-P
I am here to send
*encouraging vibes* to a nanowrimo continuer. I is a nanowrimo drop out. So proud!
