November 20- Words, Words, Words

On November 16, I got to perform at the Toronto Nanowrimo Halfway Party and Geeky Book Swap. About 70 people were there sharing nanowrimo stories, swapping geek books (Bring a book, Take a Book.  We brought about a dozen geeky books and came back at about par. SJ really likes her new Zombie Apocolypse Survival Guide).  There were about 7 different geeky musical acts performing including:

– Debs and Errol
– Kari Maaren
– Copy Red Leader
– Press Start 2 Play
– Rock, Paper, Cynic
 and even one ductapeguy.    The night before, I even wrote a Nanowrimo song to perform at the event.  Enjoy.

On a chilly dark Halloween night
Turn in early and turn out the lights
It doesn`t much matter
If you`re a pantser or planner.
Tomorrow we all start to write.

Morning coffee and tea by the pot
As we wrestle with setting and plot.
Your hero’s in the middle of a confounding riddle,
Who’s answer you once knew but forgot.

Words, Words, Words,
We need fifty thousands words
We write all the time-o
Cause it’s Nano-Wrimo
Our efforts may seem quite absurd.
Buddy have you heard,
Everyone has a pile of words
Will mine be a New York Times
Best selling novel
or a steaming pile of… (Words, words, words)

The garbage is starting to reek
I haven’t showered in nearly a week,
We’re down to one nighty and a pair of tighty whiteys
And the dishes are piled in the seenk.

The story is coming together,
Haven’t noticed the change in the weather,
I’ve not read the news, or heard Rob Ford’s Blues
till I came to the halfway gettogether.

Words, Words, Words,
We need fifty thousands words
We write all the time-o
Cause it’s Nano-Wrimo
Our efforts may seem quite absurd.
Buddy have you heard,
Everyone has a pile of words
Will mine be a New York Times
Best selling novel
or a steaming pile of… (Words, words, words)

Youtube Nanowrimo Inspiration

The other night I watched the wonderful, cheesy NaNoMusical:  A Musical about NaNoWriMo, co-written by the oft-mentioned Errol of Debs and Errol.

Here it is:

For a more serious bit of Nano inspiration, here is a speech by Nanowrimo founder Chris Baty:

Today’s Nano Inspiration

Today’s Nanotoon drawn by the perpetual motion machine known as Errol Elumir.  Here are the latest.

I didn't get any writing done last night. I forgot three comics needed to be done for My Neighbor Errol. Good grief, how did I forget? And then, I needed to rearrange the comics I did have for NaNoToons. So I inserted the above, (Kari didn't get a chance to edit), [...]
