Na... NaNaNa?

Some of you may already know that November is National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo for short, which really isn't so short). Participants try to write a 50,000 word novel between November 1st and 30th.

In honor of NaNoWriMo, we've got another brand new guest blogger for your reading enjoyment. We shall call her Sakura (for reasons that may someday become clear, but for now, just know that she is one of our favorite evil sluts and you best not cross her or you will surely suffer).

I love November if only for the lolz that NaNo (or National Novel Writing Month) brings.

It starts in October with people stating things like "I can't wait for NaNo." They go on and on about the plots that are planned and how great it is going to be. The closer to November it gets the more this comes up. (Honestly, by the time November gets here I am on the edge of being sick of hearing about it.)

November starts and people start with a bang. Journal entries are filled with things like "Finished 3743 words!!!" Whooo hooo. Away messages start popping up on messenger names such as "OFF NANOING" or giving the all important word count. Any activities not directly related to NaNo are strictly forbidden.

Mid-November brings people posting excerpts from their stories. Never the whole thing. Ever. Because that would be some sort of sin. So people post what they deem the most entertaining parts of the stories. Really it doesn't matter because no one will ever read these stories. (I often imagine somewhere in cyberspace there is a stockpile of really bad novels being protected by a deadly swarm of ninja.) Either the writer will pull the "I just don't like people reading my work" line or they will send the story to others who will pretend to read them. (A skill usually obtained in high school English class.) This is also the time of what people whining about the loss of their muse. I fight the urge to make a comment about their muse going into the witness relocation program.

Late November really brings out the attitudes. This is the time of the month when panic starts to set in. the realization of just how many words they are away from their goal. Last November I had more than one friend bite my head off late November because I asked if they wanted to go to out or talk when they had to NaNo.

Don't get me wrong. This is a good thing for people who want the support and to set this goal for themselves. I just am highly highly amused by some people and the way this "fun thing" turns them into complete monsters over the month.

So of course, since the Evil Slut Clique is not about to try to write a novel in 30 days, we were interested to hear about NaBloPoMo. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with blow jobs. NaBloPoMo is National Blog Posting Month, which is a cute little alternative for people with no attention span (but who crave abbreviations none the less). We thought we'd give it a try, only because we've got a lot of cool stuff to write about this November anyway (and so far, we've already posted every day since this month... go figure).

We'll see if we really can go all thirty days without missing one. Worst case scenario, if we're stuck I'm sure we can just crank out a post about blow jobs and it's win-win. But I think we can handle it. Especially since we just got a freebie today because of the awesome guest blogger scam we thought up.

Thanks again Sakura!

I'm Nanoing this month and I am actually not crazy from it yet. Also, maybe I'm breaking the mold, but I'm posting every word I write on my blog. I really don't expect anyone to read it all, but there's no way I can write a couple thousand words a day and think of some witty blog post.

So why NaNoWriMo? Just to see if I could do it. I have a serious commitment issue. If I can write 50,000 words in 30 days, maybe I can start exercising in the mornings.
