| Today begins National Novel Writing Month, and I'm doin' it. (Think: album-a-day but for novels, and you get a month.) That means a moratorium on all other (hobby) projects until I hit 50,000 words or the month ends. |
My novel, currently called, "Name of Author" (by "Title of Book") is an abstract, plotless Pangaea. Nothing is off limits! Therefore, like when I attempt an album-a-day, I welcome your "song titles" -- tiny, perhaps nonsensical, phrases and concepts. All month long! Let me have it!
Current word count: 1.
|Chapter titles -- "It's Either True Or Not, Okay?", "A Judgemental Reconstruction Of Eighteenth Century Furniture" (alternately, "A Proof Theory Of Human Relationships"), "Abstract, Introduction, Three Sections, And Conclusion".|
|Ha, I actually for a moment this morning considered calling the novel "Excluded Middle."|
|Ok, I changed my mind and am going to try it again this year, but I'll probably allow myself to get distracted with AADs instead.
|*suffering accute writer's block*|
|All you have to do is do it!|
|"freedom lives. now hiring"|
|"Make An Online Friend! Incidentally excellent fun is poked at Euripides and his dramatic methods,"|
|Obviously, "Lemmata of Love".|
|I'm glad to see you're still still around! I'm a big fan of your fonts. I'm also a writer (for the screen), and a blogger, as it were. I've been on a bit of a break too: I have pages submitted to an L.A. management company and it's as good an excuse as any to stop writing for a bit.
I've been playing with CSS (my ranking is novice) on my new home page:
I have some freeware fonts there and a link to your site too.
Good luck with the novel. Don't feel bad if you don't finish it--every writer has at least one orphaned book laying around.
|But I already have an orphaned book laying around. It's bad to have two!|
|Well, if the two orphans together aren't longer than one book you can count them both as one. Another option is to physically combine the two MSs. Viola! one orphaned book.
I have only one orphaned novel. I briefly considered turning it into a screenplay. I decided it should be a novel first.
|Oh, almost forgot my phrase donation for your project: nation building|
|Writing about Writing, aka, A Tattoo On My Ass of An Ass|
|Writing about writing is the one taboo to avoid! But I like the idea of tattoos on asses.|
|Taboos be damned! We're talking word count here, baby!|
