Eeenie, Meenie, Minie, NaNo
How do you spell "minie"? Meinie? One of the great riddles of our time.
Anyhoo, today is special. You probably know why: November 1st. The beginning of the 30 days of Literary Abandon, the start to the great festival of Oh My God, Why Am I Doing This?? Right now, all you NaNoites, is probably a good time in your NaNo month. You're excited and plowing through those first 1667 words. You're loving your characters, your plot, your setting. Life is good.
Remember this feeling.
Wow, that was a little ominous. Sorry about that. Won't happen again.
Whilst I skip off to dive into my first 1667 words (Maxie finally gave me the first few sentences of Discovery! I had to coerce them out of him with lots of "All the other NaNoites will make fun of me! I'll be picked last in gym class!" and whine-crying. He caved. I love him.), I shall leave you with two things.
Firstly) Are you doing NaNo? If so, what's your NaNo novel about?
Secondly) Tomorrow shall be my 200th blog post. But this week makes me grin for one other very happy reason:
Friday, November 6th, is the 3rd birthday of Stream Pirate.
That's right, folks; three years ago from November 6th the idea for Stream Pirate came bouncing into this world, kicking and screaming and covered in awesome vernacular. How do I know it was November 6th exactly? Well, that will be revealed in due time. Because I hereby dub the week of November 2nd-November 6th:
International Stream Pirate Appreciation Week!
(I can call it international, right? Because I have some international blog readers? Hello, International Blog Readers!)
So gear up for pirate goodness, stream ridiculousness, really awful sketches done by my own hand, and prizes, prizes, prizes! We're gonna give Stream Pirate a birthday party to remember!
Pirates. Prizes. What more could you want?
