2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

NaNoWriMo Update #7

Posted November 22nd, 2008 at 12:20 AM by Mario The World Champion

With Saturday now here, that means I can focus on getting more done with my NaNoWriMo project!!

With 8 days left, I'm now up to 36,117 words. And I have found a little something that can help with getting my word count nice and high in one sitting.

In my novel, the whole main plot revolves around my Main Character participating in a city wide street race Tournament. And there's going to be a ton of events for my Main Character to be in. And races chapters and scenes equal out to big word counts.

Here's an example. One of the MC's friends is trying to take this hairpin turn in a drift, but fails all the time. So, the MC offers his friend a ride in his car to show that person how to go through that turn nice and sideways.

And when I finished that scene, I actually did over 1700 words in there. That's my daily goal done in one sitting!!

So, if I do a lot of those types of scenes during the rest of NaNoWriMo, Sana won't be the only NaNoWriMo winner at PC!!!!!!!!

    I better not be the only winner here! ;_;

    The cool thing is, the little scenes like the car ride can really expand your story, too, along with boosting the wordcount. :D

    Speaking of expansions, I need to add a section to mine, because the jump's too much for this character. /random
