Writing Fools

Gossy writing away

It is a bad habit of ours to take on ridiculous projects. This month, we decided to participate in Nanowrimo. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is when you sit down, throw your sanity out the window, and write a novel within one month. Your goal is to reach 50,000 words by the the 30th. Crazy, I know. We are not doing too bad. As of now we have roughly 25,000 words (68 pages). We have a little status bar on the side if anyone is interested in our progress… Anyone? Hello? Yea… you. You are totally interested in our crazy writing project progress.

The best part is of course the writing meet-ups. Recently we tortured our brains in a 12 hour lock down. Yea, you read that right. For 12 long hours we stayed in a building and wrote with a couple dozen other folks. We were doing good until about 1 am when we took a break and played Apples to Apples. After that, Gossamer needed a nap.

It was hard to sleep when all you can think about is your word count. Luckily there was some food and caffeine heavy drinks to help us stay awake for rest of the event.

Mmm.... food.

It was a great, and brain melting event. We plan to go to a few more meet-us, just none as crazy as that one. The meet-ups are the only time we can actually sit down, and focus on writing. If we are left alone then we end up playing games, watching movies, or work on this blog.

Just for the heck of it, here is another picture of Gossamer at the Lock Down with a wombat, some penguins, and William Shatner’s head.

Toodles.
