*confetti*

Well, that was crazy. A novel. A whole one! That'd I'd had in my brain for over 2 years. Done. Well, drafted. I am proud of me, and I'm also proud of you guys who were so understanding and supportive. Thank you for living with my crazy NaNo project all month.

NOW I'M GONNA WRITE SOME FUCKING SLASH. :D

WRITING THE LEECH ATTACK SCENE HAS MADE ME FEEL VERY ITCHY. I CANNOT STOP SCRATCHING AT MY ARMS AND LEGS. I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY, NANO. YOU'VE TURNED ME INTO A PARANOID, CAFFEINATED CRAZY PERSON.

Anyone know how to stop your brain from feeling itchy? I tried looking at pictures of fluffy kittens to combat the awful creepy crawly feeling but it has not worked in the long term.

Meanwhile, does anyone know the slang term for gays in 1930s America? It is vital that I know this. *serious face*

Cassell's Dictionary of Slang sez:

The terms fag, faggot, fagola, and faggy have been in use since the 1920s in relation to gays in the US.

Also in the 1920s, the word "benny" was slang for a homosexual in the US.

Since the 1930s, "gear" has been used as slang for gay. (WTF? Is that how queer came about? A perversion of the already perverted slang term?)

"Fruit" and all its CRAZY unfunny derivations: standing in for gay since the 1900s.

"Homo" since the 1920s. HOMIE since the 1940s. Originally, homies were gays who wore expensive sportswear. Oh, rap culture. You're so queer without even trying.

"Nance" since the '20s, from the 19th century use of "nancy."

"Pansy" from 19th century to the '20s.

Ah: "queer" or "QUEERVERT" since the 1910s. WTF, 1910?

Well, that was educational.

My Twitter experience so far has been: Who the fuck are these people? And why would they follow me if I haven't tweeted? :\

Meanwhile, I just got back from the dentist. Apparently I have a cavity underneath a filling? WTF, dentistry? What's the point of fillings if they don't prevent cavities!? Well, let's fork over some cash for new teeth, I suppose.

Meanwhile, I'm on the NaNo diet. Have you tried it? I've lost 3 lbs. since the beginning of the month. Apparently I'm too busy to eat? It's kind of awesome.

Meanwhile, my iPod has completely frozen. Can't turn it off, can't make it do anything. Even the backlight has stayed on. This has been going on for about 3 hours. Any ideas?

BAM.

I did not hit my word count tonight. But it's over nine thousaaaaaaand!

I hate to put all this pressure on you, flist, but could I get a what-what? This novel thing is harder than I thought it would be, and any little word of encouragement would be most welcome.

The worst part of this novel is not having an outlet for fanfic ideas! I can't work them into this story, so they're all piling up like a clogged drain in my head.

Good news: I am have WAY more prompts to write about then days I need to write. If I just stick with it and pace myself, I should hit 50,000 on time!

Oh, also? I just wanna share, when I next see a taping of the Daily Show in late January, SOMEONE will have taken an oath of office. And here's a hint: he's not an old white dude.

It's the little things, one at a time, that will keep us going, right?
