The Clock is Ticking

By this time, one week from today, some folks will already be at 10,000 words on their Nanowrimo book. Pretty crazy, wouldn’t you say?  I know I certainly would. Still, last year there were a couple people who claimed to be done their 50,000 words by day 2.  I suppose it’s possible, but I shudder to think what the quality of those 50,000 words were. Maybe it went something like this:  “all work and no play makes mike a dull boy… all work and no play makes mike a dull boy… all” well you get the idea. If it were me, I’d rather not bother at all.

What?  You still don’t know?  I’m being overly obscure?  Even Aaron doesn’t know what I’m talking about? Honestly people, I thought you had all learned to read minds by now. But you are correct.  I am being a bit unclear.  Perhaps it is just my own paranoid, ego-centric self seeing things that aren’t there, but I could have sworn that Aaron was challenging me to another Nanowrimo. Even Terry is getting into the act.  I heard him clearly say that he had successfully completed the last […]
