JulNo-isms


So this is a thread where you can post all the silly things you wrote while you were a zombie living on coffee. So come share your odd sentences that really don't make sense! Reading through them is a good way to procrastinate as well. ;)

Usually this thread doesn't start so early, but I just had such a troublesome experience while planning my JulNo novel I had to come share anyways.

You know how sometimes you mix up the start of words with the word after that? Well I had to type "forging his sword" and for about ten times in a row I wrote "swording his forge" "forge swording" and any other variation. I still can't type it right the first time. This could be a problem later on in July..... :P

So, what's your JulNo-ism?

I'll start this off...

My character just dropped her knife "handily into her hand."

*facepalm*

My character "thought to herself."

Who else would she be thinking to?

That was running on 2 hours of sleep in two days glory, right there.

I have one from last year, but it was so epicly stupid of me that I think it deserves to be shared -

My MC's name was Bow (don't ask about the object names). Then I had a character named Arrow. Then Meadow, Sparrow, and Willow.

The best part was I didn't even realize I'd given five of my characters rhyming names until inkblot pointed it out to me *facepalm*

My biggest Jul-No-ism is my characters get genderflipped a lot. I can't seem to get the pronouns straight when I'm writing fast. XD And sometimes I mix up the names, so it winds up reading like a character is talking to himself.

My main character is called Holly. I keep calling her Holy



Do not grieve for the story, for it did not truly die. It just faked its own death and changed its identity.

JulNoWriMo Title: De gijzeling - The hostage situation

[*] posted on 7-11-2012 at 12:20 PM


My story is written in dutch, but I've got so many terms that I first think in english and then think like, how should I translate that. But writing it in English isn't a solution either. I just seem to miss certain details, synonyms, which make some things very hard to keep interesting, tough in Dutch already, but just almost not doable in english. (my character nods a lot and uses all kinds of head movement signals, for instance).



Anyone know anything about hostage negotiations? Please help! See: http://forum.julnowrimo.com/viewthread.php?tid=2753

Yes, Liddy forbade him to keep the others away too! Yeesh.

Oh, this one...
"He had a horrible temper, but given a bit of time he'd easily regain /ogle and control."

... It's logic, not /ogle. Really. I promise.

Oh, I only have a million. xD

Let's see...here's a good one:

"Horror makes my mind go roar with white noise."

Go roar? Is this a book for two-year-olds?! XD (Obviously, this was late at night)

"Head a tizzy in terror, I thrash against the weight, bucking up and down like a bucking bronco."

Again, what is with the childish words? Tizzy, lol. xD And of course she's bucking like something that's bucking. *rolls eyes* Ugh

"I can see her fingers stretched over the steering wheels like chicken bones."

I think I was trying to say that her fingers were skinny and stretched thin by using the simile "like chicken bones" but I don't really think it works...xD Also, since when is there more than one steering wheel in a car? xD

I'm positive I have more, but those are all I can find right now...
