How to Write 50,000 Words in 24 Hours

For those of you who don’t know, November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo! People take a personal challenge of writing 50,000 words in 30 days.

Family abandonment too….

However, some decide to ramp that up and try to write it in 24 hours. And I thought, why not? Gave it a try, and a carpel tunnel diagnosis later, I succeeded!

BLynchBooks asked me for tips, and what started out as a quick message turned into a TL;DR post. So I figured I would post it on my blog too!

Quantity Produces Quality – A NaNoWriMo Post

“To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.” – Leonard Bernstein

As November approaches and I still haven’t had a chance to do things like outline or plan my next novel, largely thanks to work on other consuming projects like  NaNoToons and the NaNoMusical, I’ve been feeling the need to explain why I love doing NaNoWriMo so much.

I can understand why people don’t like it. Look, we, as wrimo’s, are crazy about it. We’re like a cult. And some wrimos think that if you DON’T do Nano, you’re a creative dunce. No wonder there is backlash.

Some people have different ways of expressing their creativity. That’s fine! I won’t force anyone to do it. It’s silly to look down on someone who doesn’t do NaNoWriMo, just as it is silly to look down on people who do.

Why do I continue to do NaNoWriMo? Because I believe that creativity can be practiced. I don’t get writer’s block. Ask my creative partners. There are probably many reasons for this. Some say I don’t have any filters (I don’t really), others think I’m a loony (possibly) but one of the main reasons, I think, is that I practice it.

Thoughts

Sometimes I get thoughts. But I don’t want to put them on the internets because I don’t want people thinking I’m some pretentious academic. Heck, I hate sitting in lectures.

Anyway. I need some place to put this before I forget.

One problem with the culture of Christianity is not that we no longer adhere to the rituals of those in power. It’s that the resulting outrage of this is used as an excuse to ignore the pleas of the powerless.

I am so liberal, I think it’s OK to be conservative.

There is no virtue humanity cannot turn into a vice. There is no vice God cannot forgive.

[Song] Every Major’s Terrible

XKCD had this comic: http://xkcd.com/1052/
Every Major’s Terrible – a Parody of Modern Major General

A friend asked me to sing it the same day! THIS WAS FREAKING HARD. I secretly loathe you now Tania. :D No, I did not speed up my voice… that’s why I sound all wonky when singing it. *sigh*

Whitless Letters To – Skyrim (Featuring Errol!)

Allo! As you may or may not know, my friend Whitless, who is in the comic a lot, does letters to video game characters or video games… or… to whomever she feels like.

Anyway, this past letter has ME in it! HUZZAH! I was so excited. We even practiced. She wanted to script something out and have me memorize it (with a little adlib thrown in).

So I was an excited guy. :D I don’t know how to categorize this, so I’m putting it under Reviews.

Also thanks to VIDEO NINJA who does all the editing and videoing. :D
