NaNo Update

Don't ask me my word count. It's embarassing.

The novel (such as it is) is incoherent.

Angel is doubtless doing much better than I am.

Oh well... it's NaNoWriMo. It doesn't matter if it's crap, it only matters that it get written.

So... I'm writing.

So how long are these novels supposed to be in pages, at the end? I don't have time to do that, though I think it would be fun!

Just think--100 years from now, junior high English teachers might be assigning the literature of Amanda Justice as homework! I bet Poe never thought of that when he was writing all those creepy-ass tales!

::Snort:: 648.

I have thrown in the NaNoWriMo towel. Between being sick, pain, and Big Red, it was a lost cause.

Keep going though!!! I'm cheering madly for you :)

I'm impressed! I knew I couldn't do the novel writing thing, so I tried to do the NaBloPoMo "post a day" thing. I posted 4 days in a row (and I cheated and backdated one of those posts), then quit. I have no discipline.

Mauigirl said...

I have enough trouble doing NaBloPoMo let alone writing a novel this month! I'm impressed you're at least trying!

Amanda said...

hehehe... well, the word count is *still* crap. But I figure I'll just do this every year until I manage to finally get it done :)

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

I am clueless to the NaNo thing, is that like Mork-speak? Oh, hi Amanda, I love your blog! Yes, this is me.

Amanda said...

Case, dude!

NaNo is an abbreviation for National Novel Writing Month. You can find out more about it at, or you can check my profile for the WriMo group and check the information there.

See... *this* is what happens when you post your SL name on your RL blog, and even though you delete it, then the cache thing happens... LOL.

Or did Tycho or Spook give me up? hehe

Anyway, welcome to my occasionally updated insanity! You can't say you haven't been warned :)

Found it while googling for Tycho's blog :) My google-fu is strong. Also, I am standing outside your window.

PS (I won't tell anyone)
PSS (well Mack but that's it)

Tycho Beresford said...

Hey Case! Fancy meeting you here, standing outside Amanda's window. Want a beer?

Amanda said...


Oh dear, what with Case and Tycho already on the scene, who's next? Mack might drop by, I'm sure... Iso, maybe? Eria's been in.

I'm gonna just set up some stadium seating outside of my real life so y'all can get nice and comfortable.

Hehehe :)
