Song & Dance Man

Cha...cha cha...cha!

I got nothin'.

No exciting rare pets, no amazing gear, no exalted reps, no bumper crops, nothin'.

If you don't see many new posts, here's what's what. For some reason, I am going to try to do NaNoWriMo. 



I noticed this morning I had lost a follower. I know folks bail off of this little blog for a variety of reasons. I am really grateful for every one who reads and writes me. This morning, I realized it was Elizabeth Gossett, otherwise known as Waterbender/Shamanolic. She's the one who taught us how to splash healing rain and get naked. How cool is that?! So in true stubborn blogger style I tracked her down to her new blog, Spiritwalker's Grace. Check it out when you have a moment--it's beautiful, professional, and awesomesauce. The thing is, everyone has so many things to read, think about, and consider. The media universe is an amazing place, and there is not infinite time to look at infinite stars.

Now---I am not sure how I am going to manage the 1677+/- words/day to equal the 50K words, the average number of words in an average novel. But I am going to try. I may have to double up on Thanksgiving weekend, and Veteran's Day, but I want to give it a shot. My concept has nothing to do with Azeroth, so don't expect much here. But there are still mages to level, shamans to shock, and priests to get all psycho. Those Draenei girls are pretty seductive; but so are keyboards and fresh pages.

  1. Good luck with NaNoWriMo. I know what you mean though, lately I'll be reading blogs and/or playing and think, OH! I have a blog, I should say something! And I feel guilty when someone follows my Twitter account. I'm sure they think I tweet, nope.

  2. It is not off to an auspicious beginning. Already at 4am I was thinking about a promise I made for work, promises and duties for life, and expectations to be adhered to for another part of my job. Stress, stress, and more.

    Breathe, breathe already! :)

  3. Gogo, NaNoWriMo! I wish you the best with that. I myself am horrible at self-imposed deadlines. If I am going to break a deadline, it will be to myself. >< It is part of why I am so erratic with my blog.

    As for it not being Azeroth-related, I fail to see how that makes any difference! I write about non-Azeroth stuff sometimes. In fact, I see my blog as merely an outlet for things that would otherwise never make it out of my head and would only continue to bounce around and aggravate me with their persistence. I mean, what better way to push yourself than to know there are readers there just waiting for your next post?

    I know I would read it. :)

  5. Just remember the fun of NaNo is in doing NaNo-- winning is sometimes out of our control, but we can have a great time trying! ;)

    I use WoW as a brain buffer between work and noveling, it helps to step away from the stories for a bit to plot and there's nothing quite so soothing as mauling things when you hit a block. :)

    1. I didn't know there was a "win," so I'll just keep my "doing it for myself" in the forefront - I love the idea of a brain buffer- and realistically not sure there is any way I could stop playing cold turkey. 1680 or word a day is doable; what those words actually create, now that's for the revision process. Thanks for the insight Martha - you know I am a huge fan of yours and your site.
