2015 – December 1st


HUZZAH! Congratulations! Whether you made it to 50k or not, you know, we made it through another November! Wow! For those of you new to NaNoToons, WELCOME! I hope you enjoyed your time here! Despite all my complaining, I enjoy this little cast of characters!

And for all of you who are still around after all these years, thank you! It’s my fifth year of NaNoToons. My 10th year of NaNoWriMo. Wow. A lot of you have stuck with us since the beginning! I do read and appreciate all your comments, although I don’t get around to responding to all of them. So thanks again!

And all of this thanks to Debbie Ridpath Ohi. I think I was the one who asked to do collabs and she let me help her with NaNoToons. And then, as her life became busy with fame, I took over. Thanks, Debbie Ohi! ^_^ (She’s going to kill me for that last part).

I must say thanks to Kari for editing the comics. There are a few comics I still need to update with edits. They were the comics I finished and posted way past either of our bedtimes. Hah. Adjective word phrases are hyphened. Who knew. I mean, other than you people well versed in English.

Anyway, Kari is great and she puts up with me. Imagine that I’m a little bit like Rick from NaNoMusical, or a little bit like Rob, or a little bit like Tala. That’s what she puts up with. She’s a trooper! If you are interested in webcomics, she has her own, It Never Rains. It has a plot and has won awards!

I also have a webcomic called My Neighbor Errol. It has not won any awards, has no plot, and pretty much is about me and my family.

And I love to chat on twitter, so if you want to, talk to me at http://twitter.com/elumir!

Again, thank you! I hope you have a great holiday, and I’ll see you next year!

Final day, folks. Final day. I had a chance to catch up on writing yesterday! Huzzah! AND, I caught up on NaNoToons. 😀 Hah! So, there should be no errors because I was able to get them to Kari in time! These last few comics were going up in the wee hours in the morning. Good grief. I wish you all well! Final comic for this year is tomorrow!

Yes, things are getting ridiculous, please indulge me. Of course, it took me all evening to finish this comic. Good grief. I’ll stick with normal plots next time.

Edit: Fixed this. Was up late last night and made all sorts of errors. Woops. Sorry!

I was talking with my friend Manpans, you may know her from the NaNoMusical as ‘Val’, and she was saying all word wars feel like this to her. It’s good to know I have an introvert friend to source for realism. 😀

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! And we have FOUR DAYS!

Picking authors for this was hard. I was going to include a manga author as well, but I figured the ones I chose were already so esoteric most people wouldn’t get all of them. I probably could have made Neil Gaiman’s hair more poofy. 🙂

And huzzah! Facebook likes has surpassed 1100! It was at 1099 for such a long time. Not that I worry about likes, I just wanted round numbers. Of course it’s at 1101 but that’s ok.

Sadly, I’m having a hard time keeping up creating the webcomics. And thus, Kari hasn’t been able to edit them. SO! There may be all sorts of problems in the upcoming webcomics, so feel free to point them out.

Who knows where the author is taking this series. I sure don’t.

And sorry, I keep talking about escape rooms. What is an escape room? Do you remember those point and click flash games on the computer where you had to solve puzzles to get out of the room? For example, the key is locked in the box, but to open the box, you have to solve a riddle.

Escape rooms puts that game into real life. You are locked in a room with friends and as a team you have around 45-60 minutes to solve the puzzles to find the key to get out! It’s a lot of fun and I’m addicted to them.

I’ve done over 90 rooms now. I have a problem.
