National Terrible Unfinished Novel-Writing Month: Day 9

Annnnnnnd today I wrote a chapter in which the waitress discovers the barista’s LiveJournal blog. She, um, posts a reply in which she rebuts her account of their date.

Yeah, I know.

I have just gone and updated the Wikipedia entry for “rut.” It now says “See Andy Ihnatko’s National Terrible Unfinished Novel-Writing Month novel.” If by the time you click that link someone has changed it back, then it’ll prove once and for all that Wikipedia is completely full of crap.

Day 9. Words written: 984.

  1. It would have been funny if you’d actually changed the Wikipedia page, but unfortunately its history shows that it hasn’t been changed since September.

    Unless your modification caused so much shame in the hearts of the Wikipedia moderators (admins? editors? moder-ad-itors?) that they removed every trace of the change ever existing…

  2. But, Andy — you’ve truly demonstrated your prolificity, prolificness, proliferation, … lots-of-words writing skills! Why, you’ve been averaging 109.3 words per day. AND… that’s not even counting your blog posts. I’m very excited for you, we’re really making some progress here.

  3. Oh duh – I just noticed that the word count isn’t cumulative. Never mind. It’s not funny anymore. I will try harder tomorrow to pay attention.
