NoNoWriMo

As in NO NO NaNoWriMo.

I'm venting here, and y'all don't take offense, but I'm sick of the NaNo posts. Yeah, I scroll past them and shit, but there are times when half the posts on my flist are Nano posts.

Okay, good for you- go write that book in a month. I did Nano one year too, and I even posted about it a few times, sharing the tale with you- up until I stopped, which was like day three, and moved onto something completely different. That's not the point.

Good for you, very determined of you, good luck, buena suerté and shit, but I stopped caring five days in. Keep up the good work, keep posting about it because I know your proud, but I just needed to say- I don't care.

I'm going to go back now, to writing the long story that I am writing in Novemeber, with no association at all with NaNoWriMo. It's a cooperative project, less than a week old, and we're at about 11K words. Give or take- I don't use word counters, they're wrong. Count the number of characters and divide by six- it's a reasonable estimate.
