A Few Notes…

I finished my NaNoWriMo novel today. This is my first NaNoWriMo, and I was amazed at how well I had this planned out. I finished the story at 171 words past my goal (50,000), without having to extend or cut short the story at all. I forgot to add the two llamas, though… That’s something for editing. Now I go back to writing another story, which I will hopefully finish in just such a fashion.

I’ve started to get Spam comments in Russian, which is weird.

For some odd reason I made my subscription button say “make me eat a microwaved Snuggie”. I blame you, John Hansen!

Just after I posted that post about search terms for the Teens Can Write, Too blog chain, I got these two: “how to put on a christmas pageant” and “incessant droning of a bored writer”, which is John Hansen’s blog. I had posted something entitled “How not to put on a Christmas Pageant” earlier in the year.

I’m into Inheritance pretty far, but there’s much to go. I won’t give anything away, which I hope you are all thankful for, but I will say that I was happy to notice that the story was moving out of its normal outline and into a different sphere. Oh, how I wish I could say more… Oh, and Christopher Paolini has discovered his gift for humor outside of a certain herbalist.

There will be a guest post slot waiting for the 200th commenter, whoever he/she may be. (And if it’s me, well, you like my posts, don’t you? You’ll just have to wait another hundred comments.)

    I’m at blame, aren’t I?

  5. Have you really had your follow-buttong-thingy say that for this long? Wow. My follow widget is boring. I need to find something better to say. You don’t happen to have any suggestions, do you?

    • Nope. I should actually think about changing mine, too.

      • At least yours is more interesting than mine. *tries to think of some kind of pun she can stick in hers*

      • Please, not the puns.

      • But puns are fun!

      • Occasionally, yes. If you have a really good one, go for it.

      • I never have good ones. Only bad ones. But I don’t even have any of those right now, so… eh. Granted, there’s two kinds of bad puns.

      • Do tell.

      • Simple. There are good bad puns, and bad bad puns. Good bad puns are the ones that aren’t truly hilarious, but the kind you groan at and then try not to grin at. Sometimes they’re so bad, you have to grin, though. As my dad once said, “It’s a defense mechanism.” Unless you’re me, in which case, you always find these ones absolutely hilarious and laugh crazily at them… I laugh way too much at things. Heh. Anyway, the bad bad ones are the ones that are truly not funny in any way shape or form, whatsoever. Not even I can laugh at them. They’re just…bad. Like the kind my brother tells…

        You can only tell the difference if you’ve heard/told a lot of puns and really know them when you see them. To people who don’t know puns and/or don’t have a sense of humor, both kinds seem equally bad.

        *nods wisely*

      • Humor is a defense mechanism, or an interrupted one at least. You must have a highly interruptable defense mechanism.

        I see.

      • Apparently so.

        Good. It’s sad when people don’t understand humor…and puns…

      • Indeed.

Comment! I'll reply.
