Things You Only Hear During NaNoWriMo

During the month of November, writers, professional and amateur engage in National Novel Writers Month (NaNoWriMo).  During that time, they all engage in the attempt to write a novel of at least 50,000 words by the end of the month.  In that time, certain things are said that would only be said during NaNoWriMo.

  1. “My character’s name is Sally Jane Jo Sue Smith, nee Fronden Van Der Smoot.  She prefers to be called Sally Jane Jo Sue Smith, nee Fronden Van Der Smoot.”
  2. “No sex for me tonight, dear, I have to make my word count.”
  3. “I swear, I was only checking out that porn site because that’s what my character would have done.”
  4. “I swear, I was only looking at that porn site for visual references.”
  5. “Sure, why couldn’t they fall in love in front of a trebuchet.  Lots of people fall in love in front of trebuchets.”
  6. “What the Hell just happened, someone just killed by main character with a shovel!”
  7. “Crap!  My story almost finished and I have 10,000 words left to write.”
  8. “Anyone know how to say faction with more than one word?”
  9. “Sorry, can’t go out tonight, I still have 1,000 words to write for today.”
  10. Wow, this is good for another couple of a hundred words.”
