Humbling Quirk

Today I officially WON! Wow… What did I win, Quirk asks, just like the perfectly and disgustingly clueless person he is. Well, my dear Quirk, I won NaNoWriMo. Wait, he says, didn’t you–

You know what, this would work better as a dialogue.

Me: I officially won today!

Quirk: What did you win?

NaNoWriMo, of course.

I thought you won that on the sixteenth?

Well, I did, but the NaNoWriMo head honchos refused to acknowledge my awesomeness until today.

Your awesomeness? What awesomeness?

My awesomeness, Quirk. You know how awesome I am.

Ah, no. Remind me, please, without sounding conceited.

I thought so…

That was my conversation with Quirk. He’s so impudent. Excuse me while I pay him back for those comments…

Pow! Whap! Squelch!

[Squelch, Quirk? Really? I think you went too far on the cartoon fight noises.]

Thank you. That feels better. For me, not him. I’m not sure anyone could feel better with his nose on the opposite side of his ears. Anyway, today I officially won NaNoWriMo, and I’d like to say a few words.

Quirk is groaning.

When I heard about this… whatever it is, contest, challenge, obstacle course, whatever you want to call it, I didn’t think I could do it. Then I did it, and now I’ve changed my mind. Thank you. *Steps off imaginary stage*

Quirk is clapping. He likes short speeches.

And, in other news,

  1. I’m back to writing again. It’s picked up with the crypt idea.
  2. I’ve used the Return/Enter key a lot in this post. I suppose that doesn’t matter, really.

  1. Congratulations again! Quirk is hilarious!

  2. It’s hard to write a readable post without using the Enter button a bunch. Unless you’d rather use it once and then use copy and paste over and over instead…


Comment! I'll reply.
