There is NaNo'ing. Being a NaNoer...or is that Nanite? I've been NaNoed. There is the impulse to Nanner somebody.
None of this actually means anything unless you have taken complete leave of your senses and entered the twilight zone sometimes known as NaNoWriMo. Then it all becomes crystal clear.
NaNo'ing: v. the process of writing as many words as quickly as possible, taking a deep breath and then doing it again.
NaNo'er: n. the person engaged in NaNo'ing. Sometimes indicated by a lack of clean clothes, combed hair and the ability to hold coherent conversations beyond, "How many words do you have?"
NaNo'ed: adj. the state of having lost all sense of self through typing until your wrists are burning in agony ex: I am NaNo'ed out. ex2. You look totally NaNo'ed, dude.
Nanner: v. Sticking ones tongue out and yelling at the top of your lungs, "I have more words than you!"
NaNooooo!: "I won't do this anymore! You can't make me!"
As you can see, my Word program has a lot to complain about these days. And as I abhor little red squiggles, and refuse to turn them off lest I start making silly mistakes, the stress level for this NaNo'er has been increasing with each passing hour and word of the great insanity of NaNoWriMo. (There. I just wrote another one to totally piss off the Red Squiggle Demon!)
It is Day 14 of the great noveling event that has taken hold of hundreds of thousands around the globe. This means you should be approaching that magic 25k number as you read this pithy blog entry. Yet, I hear your pleas. Make it stop!
But no! We are NaNo'ers. A new breed! And if we use the damn word often enough, it will get entered into the Oxford English Dictionary! Shall we start a movement? Why not!
NaNo. NaNo. NaNo. Say it three times. Spell it three times. Use it in a sentence three times. Make it your own...or simply run screaming from the room. Your choice.
I am still typing until my fingers fall off or I'm sent to the place with padded walls. Haven't decided which I want, yet.Write on! And good luck (insert word count here)
