I’m just not feeling the NaNoWriMo love this year. I’m trying to write, but gawd I’m bored with my plot. Blargh! I had an idea this morning to have my characters transported by time traveling aliens somewhere else. That might be the only way to save my November. Now, if you will excuse me I’m going to go make a sacrifice to the Deus ex machina.

I’m sooo sorry. Change the plot?
Usually, the deus ex machina just needs a little bit of oil (and maybe spark plugs)… I’ve been doing ridiculous amounts of descriptions to keep my word count from getting too far behind.
NO NO!! Don’t give up now…and I’m with Melanie; I’m describing things at LENGTH! I just realized we’re near half-way, I guess that means I should really give some thought to the story MOVING ALONG, yes? Trouble is, I have no idea! (I did enjoy the long tirade by the priest, though, explaining how Jesus and Mary are just new manifestations of the Old Gods…did I mention that I’m easily led off into tangents?) But seriously, folks – I’m a first-time-r; if I can keep plugging, YOU can keep plugging!
You can do it! If you need cheerleaders, just let us know…
