Not necessarily a "JulNoism" but I just opened my file to continue writing from where I left off last night, and have no recollection of writing the last paragraph at all. For a second I actually thought, "Who wrote this??"

Of course, I was literally falling asleep while writing last night so that could explain the confusion...

Today I was working on a scene where the couple hooks up but she stops him before anything too major can happen. Only I typed a "r" instead of a "n" and wrote that Cora grabbed Dom's hard, which quite changes things and leads me into some smutty territory! XD

Despite the fact that I plain don't like this sentence, it was meant to be a fork, but my fingers were on auto-pilot.

It's staying though. Sporks are seriously under represented in my novel so far. :crying:

Haven't posted here yet this month, but when I discovered this JulNo-ism while writing, I knew that it had to go in here:

"Her wrist stung almost unbearably from the pressure of the bandage, the coolness of the melting eyes..."

Through a terrible typo, my story suddenly becomes much more gory than I had originally intended it to be. Yes, that should read ice. I apparently spelled it by sound in my head. However that works... O.o

I don't pay attention to my characters. In fact, I neglect them horribly. This is what happens when I realise that they haven't eaten for the past day or so, considering he hasn't eaten to day before either... Which is odd, as there's always food available where he is now. :D

I just had my first two today -

1. "I ran a hand through my hand." Ewww did my novel just get gruesome. :P It was - obviously - supposed to read "I ran a hand through my hair." Gahh brain circuits are off. :P

2. My story's currently in early December. My family was driving home from my grandma's, and I was typing away in the backseat, talking about the snow and being cold and frozen things for about the billionth time in the past 24 hours, and I looked up, and at first I was like 'why aren't I cold?' then 'why is it so sunny?' then '...what month is it?' And then I finally realized I was typing like crazy because it's JulNoWriMo. And it's July. Not December.


Gahhhhhhhh!!! :P

I finished the story curve for my first (short) novel at 32K words, and started on this new one to hit my 50K finish. Apparently, it was a bad idea.

Brown's being dragged from her bed in the middle of the night for an induction by the other children (whos names have all be changed to colours by this institute they're in).

Quote:
As White watched the others pull a sleepy Brown from her bed he remembered his first knight in the institute.


There's not meant to be a 'k' in there. It just sounds wrong like that, to be honest and rather non-sensical.

All right this one is rather... odd...

They seemed to have fended off or killed the rest of the breasts.

Ok, so breasts was supposed to be beasts. O.o That was the last sentence I wrote before I got up to eat. I came back and read this sentence and couldn't stop laughing for a few minutes. Which severely cut into my writing time.

I drove to the nearest Motel 6 after convincing Keer that I needed a night to sleep and checked out a room with two bedrooms.
So, once you convinced him that you guys needed to check out the hole in time and space? ._. How about a room with two beds instead?

I think I word-padded a little. Just a tiny bit, though. It looks horrible and I don't remember writing it. I'm leaving it though....its the easiest 242 words that I don't remember writing.

I was really very tired when I came out with this one, no sleep or coffee for far too long. I've read it over a couple of times to remember where I was and it's made me giggle both times. Basically, after several pages of me trying to get these two characters to finally realise how they are /supposed/ to be feeling for each other, it happened. (They needed to be together for the rest of the plot to work at all. One was desperate to stay just friends, the other was adamant that he was straight, not bi.)

Quote:
The pair kissed hungrily whilst, in the corner, the author shrieked happily in full fan-girl mode.


Fourth wall? What foruth wall?

I then (rather stupidly) attempted to fix it with commentary.

Quote:
Except she didn’t because she wasn’t in the room because she doesn’t exist in this world and should really get out of the story. It’s kind of sad really, as she’s kept the fourth wall intact for the first 40,000 words and all.


Oh, and even more madness, I just found this.

Quote:
White considered the question for a few moments, staring at the laptop screen as he did so. "I'm going to join NaNoWriMo this year." He finally announced. Black gave him an odd look.
"Why?"
"Because nothing I write can possibly suck as bad as this story does. Or the authors NaNo from last year."


Just to clarify, all my characters in this story are called colours. Don't ask me to explain, I can't be bothered at the moment.

-Cries- Clearly, my MC doesn't approve of my plot. /I'm/ rather pleased with it. Besides, he's not a writer, hardly a single creative cell in his body.

/miffed

"So how d'you know Aunt Shirley or whatever the hell I named her?"

Look, this is like this ancient spell that the whatever I called 'ems discovered that makes things go up.

Naturally, Keer had whatever his name was's telephone number.

Stuff like those three? They happen a lot.

And then there are gems like this one:
“It’s a girl,” M said sleepily. He pressed his palms onto his eyes, wincing. “I think I missed something? Because there are, like, no girls in this novel.”
“Dude,” Keer said. “Fourth wall.”
“But there aren’t.” He groaned and sat up entirely.


My poor very-nearly-all-male cast. xD I think there're, like, two important female characters (though neither are MCs), with about six important male characters (four of which are the 4 MCs).

Oh bugger it loo at that I can’t type right now.


Think I was tired? ._. I was trying to write "he touched his arm," then continue on about something about being on a mad hunt for some red marks. But it didn't work.

I didn't even remember writing the "bugger it" bit.

In the full style of the JulNoism machine that I can be at times, my last sentence (the one that took me across 50K) was a JulNoism.

Quote:
...doing his best not to end up settled on White’s wind by accident.


White's lying on the bed, in horrific pain because some random people who kidnapped him spent several hours torturing him by trying to destroy his wings. Black's clearly worried about sitting on his wind. Took me forever to work out what was wrong with this. =P

(Should be wing, not wind, basically.)

Basically everything I wrote today except the first few paragraphs and the last few paragraphs were just one massive JulNoism. I destroyed the fourth wall completely and then had epic battles against various... well, you can just message me on U2U if you want to read my terrible mess of drivel from my final push.
