Well, it's been one heck of a ride, let me tell you. And this is just the beginning.

I want to thank everyone who's stuck with me over the last month. You guys have been truly awesome and some of the stuff you've come up with blows me away. I am truly not worthy when compared to your sheer brilliance. But now we move hand-in-hand from Warm-Ups into NaNo, and I hope that we'll keep this comradeship going. It's the only way to survive the next 30 days, as we veterans know.

So, without further ado, and mostly so you can get going with the final prep work for midnight tonight in whatever time zone you're in (and to those of our literary compatriots who are currently living Day 1 of NaNo, I salute you!), I give you our absolutely final Warm Up of 2007.


Like a river flowing... )


Now, I mentioned iconses a while back, and I have decided that instead of making icons for those who've done all the warm-ups, I'm just going to let everyone who tried their hand at these pick one and wear it proudly for the next 24 hours or however long you wish.

Icons and Credit Info  )

Thanks again, everyone! Catch you on the other side of November 1st!

Hopefully your thesaurus has gotten a good warm-up this past month, and you've expanded your descriptive vocabulary. Goodness knows that you'll need the skills to pad those novels in the days to come.

And for those that find a traditional Thesaurus inadequate, thesaurus.com is always a great place to find the perfect word.

Now, to cement your new-found skills at writing descriptive prose, try your hand at these, our final six contestants in the expressive, illustrative, illuminating, depictive, detailed world of sensory writing.

Vivd Narrative )

Also, I found some decent popsicles, and with 24 in a box, I think it'll work fairly well! For those interested, I picked up the Chapman's Li'l Treats popsicles.

Insanity aside, this is going to be a fun NaNo!

I remember it like it was yesterday: the stack of little wooden sticks so new and untouched, like a blushing bride waiting for her wedding night...er, what? No, that's not right. That is totally not the comparison I want to make...*thinks* Hrm...

Either way, it's hard to believe that today is the day that the final six (6) popsicle sticks make their LJ début. With only 3 days left until the official start of NaNo, these innocuous pieces of wood begin the final countdown in this, October's endgame.

*cracks knuckles*

Are you ready?

I'm ready.

Bring it on.

It's scary how close to November we are. Seems like ages ago that we started these exercises. Time flies, eh?

Time for the penultimate round of the Protagonist Game :)

Dear Diary... )

Writing times have been changed up a bit, so take note!

Also, I need to make up a shopping list so I can stock up for NaNo. This...is going to be an interesting month.

Ooooh, inventory. You are both fun and evil. Just like NaNo. And my subconscious needs to be shot. Those dreams about that person? Soooooo not cool!

*wierds*

Time to shake it off... )

You know, all of these could get worked into a single story. I should offer up a cameo appearance in my NaNovel for the first one who can do it *sage nod*

I was about to go down for a nap so I won't pass out during inventory tonight when I decided that, in all fairness, I should post this now, so you guys have some time to play.

And we're down to the last 18 popsicle sticks, including today's. I find that both exciting and horrifying for various reasons, which I'm sure you can guess.

I have to admit that, outside of the one I posted a couple of weeks back, I haven't been keeping up with these exercises either. Although my reason might be purely due to the fact that I don't want to exhaust the surprise of each element I've given you in the even that I actually need to pick one of these up during November.

That being said, however, I'll be working through No Plot? No Problem! and the NP?NP! writing kit during November, so The Writer's Toolbox is going to be a last resort for me. Which reminds me! I need to set up some of the NP?NP! box stuff, like the daily word count chart and other sundry.



Once upon a time... )


Only 9 days left, everyone!
