This graphic is fabulous. It represents a tiny crash course in rhetoric. Learn these things. Put them on your wall. Whisper them into the breeze. These are THINGS TO KNOW.

Ok, so the Nanowrimo challenge deal isn’t going to happen. I’m a little over half way on the words but way past half way on the time. To finish on time I’d have to write over 4500 words per day. That’s just not going to happen. The website says if I continue at this pace I should finish 50,000 words by December 19th. However, with Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the need to craft and maybe even do a craft show, I really am not sure I can keep up this pace. I’m setting a new goal of myself to finish the book by the end of the year. It’s really not that much of an extension. I have 35 days to finish the book. Honestly, I don’t even know if it’s any good. But I’ve read a few, and heard of even more, published novels that weren’t any good. And honestly, it’s more about me doing it, me finishing a novel, than getting on the New York Times best sellers list. So onward we go. Write, write, write. :)
November 1-30. The world needs your novel.
This is the pep talk I wrote some years ago for week three. You are now entering week three. Welcome to hell. Read the talk.
For all you poor bastards scheduled to work this Saturday, I put together a note that I think might get you out of it. Feel free to download, print it out and type in your name. It’s worth a shot.
