A Richmond Wrimo shared this link: The Worst Writing From Nanowrimo. And that led to The Best of NaNoWriMo. Did I get insulted that people would act like that about NaNoWriMo? Hell no. I howled with laughter.
“Need help explaining the meaning of life for my novel.” (Just for your novel? Not, say, for living? 42! Next q!)
“What is guinea pig meat like?” (Dare I say it tastes like chicken? After all, everything tastes like chicken, right?)
Can I let you in on a dirty little secret? When I’m feeling burned out from flinging words on the nano-grill, I often go to the forums. For inspiration? Well, not exactly. That’s not to say I haven’t come away with some awesome inspiration at times. Mostly, though, I go to laugh. It’s relaxing.
The two links above are prime examples of just why I go to laugh and chillax on the Nano forums.. If you let any quarter of a million people loose with access to a forum, a good chunk of them will make you laugh no matter how serious they’re trying to be. People are funny. And I enjoy it thoroughly.
Now I have to go see if any of my comments have made it to fame. Would it mean I’m a better Wrimo if they have? I’m not convinced I wish for that much of teh awesome.
