Real fast-like, before I head in to work!

Today, we take Zsa Zsa Gabor as our literary role model. Her enthusiasm for marriage was so great that she did it nine times. What do Zsa Zsa's many nuptials have to do with your novel?

Today, as a number of possible plot directions start offering themselves to you, you may decided to wait coyly for The One to appear. Don't.

In the world of the monthlong novel, there are no frogs, only princes (or princesses). Take inspiration from the Hungarian actress, and hitch yourself to any likely plot suitor. You'll have a great time with any of them, and you can always grab a different one on the next go-round.

Today's flashcard from the No Plot? No Problem! writing kit, the genius brainchild of Chris Baty.

Pep Card: Day 30 )


And because the kit is uber helpful and geared towards doing the month-long novel at any time of the year, there is a final card for the months with 31 days. Here it is, in all its glory:



Pep Card: Day 31 )

Congrats to all those that finished, and - most importantly! - to all those that tried. See you in 2008!

Sorry. I was so trying to make my word count for yesterday before my schedule took me away from the keyboard for the entire day, that I forgot to post this.

Pep Card: Day 24 )


Not only did today's Pep Card simultaneously vindicate and terrify me, but it brought to mind that one Calvin and Hobbes strip where Calvin needs to write a story for class and instead of writing he's playing in his sandbox with Hobbes. Hobbes calls him on it, and Calvin chastises him by stating that one does not simply turn on creativity like a faucet; one must wait for the proper mood to strike. Hobbes innocently asks what mood that might be, and Calvin - without missing a beat - states simply: Last minute panic.


Happy Last Minute Panic Week.

*slumps in relief* And here I though he was ging to guilt trip me for not going to the gym today. Though I find that my writing speed matches the tempo of the music, and even with my NaNo playlist on "random", it tends to score my novel perfectly, the musical cues synching up with eerie precision to the emotional beats and key actions as I write them.

It's creepy.

Happy Day 20, everyone!
