And day 1 is a bust!

What do you know, I'm behind already. I got a good 3k words written today... for a school paper on the Holocaust. Who knows, maybe a character will just happen to need to write a 10 page paper at some point, to escape an all-but-inevitable demise! The excitement! The suspense! Will Johnny finish his citations in time?!

So while I finally crack down, I am soliciting suggestions.

The Bible is a fucking awesome book. If you skip the genealogies and such, and actually read the thing, it's full of some crazy shit. Intrigue, murder, sex, talking animals, war, betrayal, rape, adventure, etc. It is definitely not child-safe, and certainly not something I am comfortable with so many people basing their system of morals on. But definitely awesome.

So I want to hear the nastiest, craziest, or silliest Bible story you can remember.

There's Lot's daughters getting daddy drunk and fucking him. There's the mauling of 42 children by bears. David collecting 200 foreskins for love.

What else is there?

Nov 1, 2010


Welcome! It's a little empty in here, but that should change very soon.

It's November.

November is National Novel Writing Month - NaNoWriMo. NaNo, for the uninitiated, is the most glorious hell imaginable. It is a month of coffee and screaming and bullshit and glory. The goal? To write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. It doesn't have to be publishable. It doesn't even have to be legible. The point is to write. To sit down and shut up and finally say Fuck Everyone, I'm Writing a Novel, and actually do it. Editing comes later. 

There are some NaNoers who write 200,000 word masterpieces and have been working on outlines and characters for months now. I am not one of those writers.

I am one of the NaNoers who realized today that it is November, and oh shit, I need a plot. I am one of the people who will be spending November 30th catching up my last 10,000 words. I am one of the people who separates hyphenated words to boost word count. I am one of the NaNoers who, when out of ideas, throws in a sex scene just to make something happen. 

I started this blog in the hopes that having my progress out in the open would inspire me to get my daily 1667 words in. Be prepared for a lot of crap to appear in this space.
