#NaNoWriMo

Current #audiobook and I feel like Dickens was using the #NaNoWriMo form of writing, repeat full names every time you talk to them, about them, or think about them! Gets a little redundant.

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian In a Victorian lit class I took many years ago, we talked about the repeating name thing and apparently one reason Dickens and others did this was because their novels were published serially in periodicals and there could be a long time in between chapters, so they felt like they needed to remind readers who everyone was in cause they'd forgotten. It's also why many characters have weird schticks like a catchphrase or a unique article of clothing 3mo
CrowCAH @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I totally understand that, makes sense, don‘t want to confuse the reader between episodes. But in the same three paragraphs repeating one name like ten times, when I know who is doing what action. It gets bogged down with the names. 3mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @CrowCAH haha, that is excessive, I think they also got paid by the word so that's another explanation! 3mo
CrowCAH @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian that was my thinking, pay by the word. So why not slip in extra words here and there and no one the wiser to the scheme! 😆 3mo

I met my #BFC2022 reading goal for February (with the exception that I didn‘t read any books from my own shelves). I still only walked twice a week but I‘m OK with that. Unfortunately, I didn‘t do any biking and very little revision on my #Nanowrimo novel. I‘m going to try again in March with a more modest word count goal for the revision and do my best to actually read some of my own books instead of just library books and get biking!

wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 Keep making great progress! 7mo

The graph is quite misleading in that I got super busy and lazy logging my word count. I‘m about 2k words short of being done but super happy with my WIP. I should wrap up the first draft in the next week—Christmas decor willing. I hope everyone had fun this year because let‘s be honest—that really is the point.

50,000 words 😵‍💫
Did this, don't know how, it was a crazy busy month. But I'm one of those weirdos who gets more done the busier I am. It's either panic or potato for me, no in between.

#NaNoWriMo There‘s a little voice right now in my head, telling me I already know I‘m not going to make it to 50k, so I should just go ahead and stop now. But I wanted to make it to the end, writing every day, and I am going to do that.

#NaNoWriMo Between naps all day, I managed to write a bit and read almost half of a Stargate/Avatar the Last Airbender crossover fanfic. 😅😅
