2012 – November #25

Errol: This is Friday Errol posting for Sunday. If all is good, I should be at the overnight writing session now. I bet I’m tired. 😀 Hope you’re doing ok, future Errol!

Debbie: I’m wishing future (now past??) Errol luck as well. 😀 Only FIVE MORE DAYS left in NaNoWriMo! How is everyone doing with their novels?

  1. Actually, knowing Tim, shortening his username probably eliminated about three lines from his novel.

    And I think it’s beautiful that Ed is whining about “you young folk” when he’s obviously much more immature than Fran.

    And what *does* Victoria see in Dave? I definitely remember him being *just* as annoying as Ed his first NaNo. ;P

    • Ed I can get a handle on – someone with a big front (hence his shades) and insecurities bigger than he is (yes, more than one insecurity going on with Ed). Cut down on the front and I see too much of myself in that person. Fran I’ve never liked, as she seems (to me) to act more like a device than a real person – she seems to do whatever the plot needs to have done too readily to hold a steady persona.

      As for Victoria seeing stuff in Dave, remember that they’re a year-round item. We just see them from October to the start of December, when Victoria enters NaNoWriMoWorld and Dave has to figure out how to last the month without her.

  2. Ooh, overnight writing session! Goodness, all these things sound awesome. I seriously need to find some others doing NaNo in my so-called “Real Life”… 😀

      • I think he should definitely succeed. It’s one of the hard parts about after NaNo. The post NaNo forum is usually buzzing about what should be done with the book when it’s complete. Can Tim actually break the novel down into a trilogy? I’m sure Ed and Fran can help him with that part, especially since Fran is already done with her word count. I hope he does it!!! I’m rooting for him!

  3. I wish I could do NaNo with other real life people because it looks like so much fun, but nobody in England that I’ve encountered so far has even heard of NaNo, and the chances of finding somebody who isn’t way older than me, is one in a million, given how young I am. All the friends I already have think I’m crazy for even doing NaNo, let alone doing it with me. So I’ll just have to do it all alone 😦 Oh well, I still think I might win though 😀

    • Have you gone on the forums for your region? There was someone from South London in my Camp Nano cabin this summer, and I know there are plenty of other people in England doing Nano.

    • Same here! I live in Nebraska, and my region is “Nebraska: Elsewhere.” I managed to convince about five people in late October, but three never started, one got really behind 19k, and then just gave up, and the last one was an overachiever and hit 64k! But I really wanted to have a decently sized write in…. 😦

  4. I had a total Tim moment during a word war- my opponent is like “560 words!” and I’m just like “My Internet died on me.” D:

    11,667 more words, and I’ll be back on track! MUSTWRITEMUSTWRITEMUSTWRITE

  5. Tim has a long way to go. My novel is almost at 50,000- just 2,000 left- BUT… that doesn’t mean the novel is any where close to done. I will have to make sure to get it done in time for ABNA 2013

  6. Poor Tim! I guess shortening a pen name is a start.
    My novel right now is sitting at about 62k, so I’m almost there to my 75k goal! Just gotta stay focused…

  7. Lol! Tim should try throwing his novel into the cage of dogs at Petsmart. All of the pages left after they chew on it, he keeps. 😀 I’m behind on NaNo (sadly) and am currently stuck for ideas. *sigh* I’ll probably just throw in a dinosaur dream that I’ll take out after November.
