NaNo 2012

Post by dulsi » Tue Oct 30, 2012 1:38 pm

IM conversation between me and my brother about National Novel Writing Month.

Brother: a little over 38 hours left until the start of NaNo2012... I still have no clue what I am going to write...
Me: gammaworld novel. electric felinoid and her potted plant friend. uncover plot by pure strain human secret society to attack town. Town found a mech but no power. felinoid powers the mech to save town. Some other groups detects mech powering up. Destroys town but felinoid, plant and giant intelligent mole escape.
Brother: ...
Brother: I am going to write something outside of my comfort zone, true
Brother: but that's WAY OUT there :)
Brother: and who is the giant intelligent mole?

LOL! Best of luck on this one. I'm throwing my hat in the ring, too. I'll be doing short stories.

What's your NaNo handle? Mine's Malaclypse the Perturbed.

Actually I've never participated but have been thinking about doing the story I mentioned to my brother.

I'm official in. Username is dulsi as usual. I wasn't really sure about doing it but my wife said she didn't think I could. That annoyed me. She since backed off of that due to thinking about my DMing and was willing to support me anyway.

All I can say is...



Nanu-nanu.
Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam.

On to the editing phase. I don't like some the early stuff as much as some of the later work. Once I'm satisfied enough with a section I'll try to make an excerpt available.
