WWPD??? October 28, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Word Play, Writing & Writers.

IMGP4187Q:  What does WWPD mean? 
A:  Be patient, I’ll get to that in a minute.

Q:  Is it like WWJD?
A:  Nope.  Not even close.   

So, have you caught the fever?

Are you counting down the days until November 1st, pen in hand, back up laptop recharging?

Do you plan to shoot out of the starting gate like a jack rabbit, or take it slow and steady like a tortoise?

Before we’ve consumed our weight in candy, or cleaned up the smashed pumpkins, NaNoWriMo commences with a vengeance as writers around the globe compete for bragging rights and keep track of . . . WWPD.

* 1,667 x 30 = 50,000
* 2,000 x 30 = 60,000
* 2,500 x 30 = 75,000
* 3,000 x 30 = 90,000

WWPD = Words Written Per Day . . . as NaNoWriMo holds sway.

BTW:  NaNoWriMo is definitely NOT the time to use “Less is More” as your writing mantra.  ūüôā

I live on an island . . . our third.

(Third time’s¬†a charm.)¬†

I am aunt to 10 enchanting nieces and nephews . . . 4 households, 3 states.

4¬†. . .¬†3 . . .¬†2¬†. . .¬†1¬†. . . 0¬†¬†(that’s us!)

I am an Island Aunt . . . who oft weaves magic.

(I’ve always been an Island Girl!)

And . . . I WON¬†Island of the Aunts in Becky Levine’s recent contest!¬†

Thankful Thursday: A Good Week (And a Contest Winner)

Thanks, Becky! 

Here’s to Flying Dragons . . . that forage for their own food.

BTW:¬† In case you’re wondering, Flying Dragons are my second favorite way to fly.

See if you can guess the first.

Hint:  Think Quidditch
