Errol: Our overnight writing session has two rooms: one for serious writing and quiet, the other for people like me. And it’s where the food is. The only time I ever went into the quiet room was to go warm up by the fireplace. It was cozy.
Debbie: The bit about Tim falling asleep on the delete key was inspired by one of the conversations in the NaNoToons comments section a couple of days ago, with Tarina and Errol. 😀
Hahahaha I’m with you, Errol. Wherever the food and fun is. Who needs the quiet room?!
I did go into the quiet room one time, there were about 10 people there. In the upstairs ‘loud’ room, there were about 30. Hee hee.
LOL! I wish there’d been a nice quiet room when I was writing…then again, it wouldn’t have worked, I like to eat while I write, so that would’ve made too much noise. Still, it was nice to dream about. ^_^ Yay for Tim!
Honestly, when I write, I don’t do it around people. 😀 They’re just too exciting to talk to. 😀
Sharri – what do you like to eat that would have made so much noise? I have to know! 😀
That is so cool! Where do you guys have these things?
For the past 4 years, it’s been at this church/drop in center that works with the homeless and marginalized. They don’t do overnight stuff, so we can use the building. 🙂
The real question is will his laptop still work with drool in it?
I just read the mouse-over text. Apparently Tim has some kind of super computer, impervious to fluids. Lucky indeed.
I am seriously jealous of these overnight writing sessions. I am really not a social person, but even I would go to that.
One day, I will make it to the Night of Writing Dangerously… 😀
HAHA! Good question, Kristi!
I LOVE that idea! Next year I must find a location with two rooms. We have almost outgrown our current location anyways.
I love that idea! Must find new location with two rooms for next year. We have almost outgrown our current location anyways.
Oh cool! How many people do you get?
Lol, that made my night. Now time to go to bed and dream of more things for my NaNo characters to do to make up that extra 6,000 words I have left.
Oooh! Almost there! 😀 Stay on Target!
Good luck, Sabrina!
This is the best one for me yet…very funny!
I LOVE TIM!!!!
I am almost done with my novel. 234 more words!!!!!
GO ERROL AND DEBBIE!!!!
WOOHOO, CLAIRE! YOU GO, GIRL!!!
xD!!!!!!!!!! Fell asleep on the delete key, that is one of the best lines ever! 😀 Good one guys! Lol I can imagine the words so slowly disappearing off the screen as he sleeps — and the others didn’t even notice. Wow, that could make an epic short film, too… hmmm now I have ideas…. 😀
OH and also, I’m just about to attempt 11.2k in what’s left of today (28th) then the 29th-30th in a desperate attempt to actually get 50k in my first NaNo…. oh how I want to finish properly, not just say I won from changing down my wordcount! 😀 Back to writing now!
Good luck, Tarina!!!!
Awesome! Thanks for the all-nighter with our new group. And I knew Tim would be able to make the cuts somehow. 😀 Brilliant twist!
Thanks, Kate. 🙂
This is so something that would happen to me…last year I clicked a button on Google docs and erased almost 3/4 of my novel. My dad luckily, is a computer nerd and got them back.
Huzzah for backups! 😀 😀 Ya, why didn’t Tim have a backup? Hmmm….
Because his is probably so long that to backup he would need about fifty of those backup bracelets.
