Why is it so much easier to write dialog for a bazillion gillion year old goddess than it is to write dialog for a 20 year old male? It makes no sense.

Maybe because boys are weird.

Edit:
Dear LJ Spellcheck,
Stop screwing with my head. It's dialogue, darn it, not dialog. Don't give me that crap about British vs. American English.
Yeah,

Yeah, harder than I thought it might be to keep up with the word count thing.

So, I've been wanting to participate in NaNoWrimo for years. I've never managed to do it, and not just because I suck at follow through. November is renfaire month. That time of year is all about working fifteen hours a day, being intensely social, and then falling into the bed exhausted every night--not exactly the best time to try to write a novel. So yeah, can't do it.

But I really, really want to try the whole structured, word count, goal thing. I think it'll be good for me. If you know me at all, you know I'm one of those people who never, ever, ever finishes a project. So, yeah, goals. Finishing stuff. I'm going to try to do that.

So here's the plan: my own personal nano project will be 1667 words a day on my days off for the next two months. That may or may not be 50000 words (much too lazy to go find a calendar right now), but it's about right. I post the word count here to keep me honest, and then promise only to whine about writing behind a cut. And that's it. A goal. Yay me.
