Crappy Novels for SCIENCE.  
6092 ★ 50000


One writer at today's nano pub crawl is attempting to calculate how much beer is actually required to write a novel. I'm not sure, but I did learn that the number of jello shots it takes to write a novel is somewhere between 0 and 1.

Then I had tea in the virtual company of phrenitis, which was much more effective on a scale of words written vs. embarrassing things announced to strangers about how cool my tongue feels.

In my house, we have a joke: the snot thickens.

usually this is used in reference to clunky "as you know, Bob" scenes.

now that I think about it, an editor living with a novelist can result in hilarity. Not that the above is necessarily an example.

If there were ever a time for someone to exposit clunkily to Bob, it's November! :)

I'm doing a lot of that, and a lot of repeating information in general since it's hard to remember what's been said when I'm not reading back. November is so freeing now that I've embraced my inner terrible author!

Well, why didn't someone tell me this sooner?

Seriously, I don't advise it! I forgot how to type.

I'm pretty sure my novel-on-jello-shots would just look something like 'and then something happened. Probably ought to write something else... Drink bad.'

On the other hand, it could turn out to be my masterpiece.

*makes mental note to try*

Who needs words? WORDS ARE OVERRATED. I'm writing my novel in the style of e.e. cummings and just throwing words and punctuation marks all over the page.
