Ugh.

It's been a DAY and I'm already sick of all the "NaNoWriMo" crap. Yes, I know what it's about - "quantity and not quality." Which, ya know, kind of defeats the purpose of writing, in my mind. Don't you want people to ENJOY what you write?

*sigh* It's gonna be a long, annoying month. Perhaps I will protest it by not writing ANYTHING. Not that anyone will notice.

I gave up yesterday. Hooray! :D

I dunno... It was more fun last year, because I had an actual idea then and didn't have other stuff to work on. This year, I have nothin' and my brain has been consumed by fanfiction ideas.

Ah well, there's always '09. And I did learn all I ever wanted to know (and more) about cholera and jam from the NaNo site. So, some good came out of it.

Also, I would notice. And possibly die.

Aww, that's no fun. Well, maybe you'll still get inspired and write something anyway! :D And there is no such thing as too much information about jam!

Also, you so wouldn't die.

I might. A little bit.

On the inside, at least.

Forget this NaNoWriMo crap... I just want to finish the stories I've started.

The end of last month was my "Finish Unfinished Projects" time... lots of crafty goodness was had. Perhaps I'll make this month all about finishing unfinished fics?

Not writing anything would be a bad thing. A VERY bad thing. There are many of us who would notice, and curl up and whimper like kicked puppies.

That's a good idea! I love that you had a "finish unfinished projects" time - I think that's what I ended up having, too, with the whole costume thing. I...don't have any fics started, so it might be a good time to do that? *shrug*

*clings to you to avoid the kicked puppy angst* Don't do that! *sniffle* We'll see what happens - it's a busy month for me, with two conventions (which means two weekends where I am not home except to sleep for a few hours). But there is always a chance some inspiration will strike and the Hooker!AU will begin!

OK, first, bite me, you pick the spot. Second, I'm kinda chuffed to do it this year. But I'm not going to post a daily counter or anything. One of my comms has that. And I'll put it in my user info, so you can see it there, if you wanna look. But I'm kinda happy to writing again. Even if it's not perfect, I'm writing. Mew...

See, that works. It's all those people who are using the daily counters that are pissing me off - I can't check the flists of my comms anymore because that's all it is. Pages and pages of "look, I wrote ten words today!" Ugh.

Also? You know me. I'm a total elitist bitch when it comes to writing and reading. :)

Well, if I used the counter, I'd put it behind a cut. I did test it today, but that's it. I have the counter at my page. Ask me after Thanksgiving how I'm doing.
