I love Aerin!

For she has just lain down and invited her own evisceration...

"I have a weird favor to ask of you. My birthday present from my fam is writing time - I have the whole afternoon. I'm setting the goal of 5,000 words.

If I don't reach it, will you dole out some McK punishment, as you did to Whirl? I know I'm bringing it on myself, but I have to get someone to keep me accountable and I'm more afraid of you than any of my other writer friends and I mean that in a very loving, admiring sort of way."

Oh, she knows what The Koala likes in her friends. *sets the wordometer* *chk* Go, Aerin!


*The Koala retires for a relaxing little claw sharpen and polish*

I can help if she doesn't make it, right?

*clacks toe-nail pincers*

Are you an evil mesmeric psychic as well as a seasoned render of flesh?

Aerin the masochist.

Aerin is much braver than I realised. Those claws are terrifying.

Don't you hurt my Rosey Posey Aerin!!!!!!

Even if she is bringing this upon herself. 5k in one afternoon? Aerin--I'll say a little prayer for you. You can do it!

Um...while I'm here, could you pretty please add me to your list of victims, I mean participants.

My weekly goal? 2k.

Aerin- hope all went well!

P.S. I need a week off - word-count. BECAUSE - an elderly and hard-to-please and constant-fuss relative is coming to stay for a week, and I'll have my hands full just remaining sane.

Just to clarify, peeps - I was giving myself yesterday afternoon and this morning, since I had the obligatory tequila party last night. I have three hours and 1800 words to go.

It's okay that I've just written "watermelon" 3200 times, isn't it?

#challenge fail. I tried and I could give tons of excuses, but you are all welcome to punish me as you see fit. (Except for Whirl. I'm afraid I'd enjoy his punishments too much.)

An awesome learning experience, and definitely something I want to try more often - the sort of NaNo weekend, rather than month.

...sort of NaNo weekend, rather than month.

You could try the three-day novel contest.

Mind you, that's an order of magnitude more masochism than NaNoWriMo.
