Precisely. ._.
It was particularly sneaky, too, and exploded in the shadow of the scanner. Could have happened weeks ago.

Much can happen in the shadow of a scanner. If you find babies around the appartment, you know where they came from.

Oh, don't be shy. You know you want you some hot scanner action. Reminds me of one of the early issues of Hack/Slash, actually. Epic comic is epic. (yes, it's the one with the goth girl and the gas-masked giant killing undead serial killers.)

because it's bloody stupid, that's why. You wanna write a novel, do the work. If not, well, i'm not gonna say fuck off, but... i've watched NaNoWriMo. As a serious, aspiring author, I do not like or respect it.

It reminds me of those X Number of Days Comic Drawing events. As a serious artist, I don't have any problem with it.. Obviously it's not going to produce great stuff, but it's not like the people writing from scratch aren't doing work. It's just practice for speed, at worst, unless there's cheating. But that's neither here nor there. [/off-topic]

I'll admit that there's the occasional nugget in there, yes. Occasional being the key word. Most of NaNoWriMo is total crap. Furthermore, writing a novel isn't really about speed, it's about endurance. Writing five hundred to a thousand words a day will produce a far better result than NaNoWriMo.

Besides, I'm a creative writing student. My schedule is harsher than NaNoWriMo.

If I calculated it right (which I did), to complete NaNoWriMo in the allotted time, assuming the author writes every day, there must be a MINIMUM of 1,667 words written per day. That's not that much more than what you said.

I don't see how participation in NaNoWriMo makes things 'less serious.' To me, that sounds snobbish, like saying "I'm on a higher pedestal than you because I'm a REAL writer, therefore I will not subject my talents to such childishness."

I may not be majoring in English--or planning on it--but that doesn't make me, or any other NaNoWriMo participant, a 'fake writer,' which is what I'm getting out of your statements. No one expects our finished results to be New York Times Best Seller material.

As for endurance, I'd say NaNoWriMo takes it seriously. You've got to have it to not burn out halfway through.

What I guess I'm trying to say is that there's no point whatsoever to NaNoWriMo. OK, sixteen hundred words a day, you say. yes, that's doable. However, writing every day, even for just a month, is hard. Really, really hard. So my respect for that 1% of NaNoWriMo participants who manage it. However, NaNo also requires you to pretty much rush. Rushing mostly ends up in inferior quality.

I may not be majoring in English--or planning on it--but that doesn't make me, or any other NaNoWriMo participant, a 'fake writer,' which is what I'm getting out of your statements. No one expects our finished results to be New York Times Best Seller material.

Then why bother? Why would you willingly put out sub-par work? If you're going to write a bloody novel, why not write it the best you can and get it published?

Yes, I might possibly sound snobbish. Maybe that's because I am, at least a bit. When you get right down to it, writing is my "job", so I take it pretty seriously. It's much the same as why I'm offended at Twilight. As a writer, I feel insulted that something so bad was published.

But for my final argument... Have you actually taken a look at what seems to be NaNoWriMo's average participant? Like the people in their forum? If you have, are you really surprised that I don't take it seriously?

PP: I used a day of my annual leave to spend five hours cleaning and tidying today. The flat is now bare and empty and very very clean, and I'm really tired.  The people came early, and spent less than a minute here in total. I feel kinda let down about the lack of appreciation for all the time and effort I put in.

Due to the amount of times "Scanners" has been used on this page, I am forced to post this.
