A NaNo Conversation

doll
"Hello, Nano Work-in-Progress."

"Why, hello there, Jen. You're sure been spending a lot of time with me, haven't you?"

"Why, yes I have."

"You just said 'why' twice."

"...What?"

"I said WHY hello there, Jen, and you said WHY yes I have. That's an ECHO."

"Why, yes it is."

"Now you're doing it deliberately."

"Why, yes I am."

Silence.

"Yanno, for a NaNo project you have no sense of humor."

"What do you mean--'for a NaNo project'? I sense a veiled insult there."

"Sorry. It was actually meant to be an overt insult."

"You say I have no sense of humor? HELLOOOO? I've been humoring you for the past nineteen days! I hear you laughing your ass off over every page."

"So?"

"SO???? I'm a HORROR story, you eejit."

"You're nothing yet. You're a crappy first draft. A NANO first draft, no less. You're 30,018 words of incomprehensible babble, implausible plot lines, undeveloped characters who can't go three paragraphs without repeating the same gesture they've already performed fifty times before--characters, I might add, who switch languages at the drop of a hat. Why do you torture me so? You know I'm monolingual."

"Mono-what?"

"Whatever you call it when you only speak one language."

"Yes, unlike your MC who happens to speak three. Why do always write about people smarter than yourself?"

"Nyah nyah nyah nyah NYAH NYAH nyah?"

"Great, Jen. Very mature."

"And, by the way, it's 30,218 words, not 30,018. I just wrote 200 more words while arguing with you. AND ate some baklava."

"I'm certain your keyboard thanks you for that..."

"I'm tired. I'm going to bed. See ya Tuesday."

"Tuesday? Wait! What about tomorrow?"

"Hello, I'm working?"

"Well, well, well. You're just  full of excuses, aren't you?"

Sigh.

"Okay. See you tomorrow. But ONLY FOR A LITTLE BIT!"

"Thanks! I wuv you, Jen-Jen."

"The act like it, hey? Do my bidding without question! Become the full-fledged novel I know you can be. BE that horror story, O NANO WORK-IN-PROGRESS! EMBRACE THE INNER WORKINGS OF MY FABULOUS IMAGINA-- Hey! Where you going?"

"You're scaring me."

"Wimp."

"Loser."

"Na-No-WHINE-more!"

"Oooh, clever. Better save some of that wit for your BORING-ASS STORY!."

*snickers* Oh, this made me laugh way too much right now! (Not that I mind... *hee*) I'm impressed how you were able to scare it. I wish I could do that to some of my more pesky projects. XD

It never lasts. Sigh. These things have minds of their own.

Heh, I know what you mean. I'm always coming up with creative ways to threaten my characters as a result!
