In fact: National Sentence Writing Week (NaSeWriWee)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — pprscribe @ 3:02 pm

Yeah, I know you haven’t heard of it. I just made it up. I’m so proud of folks (like Nordette!) who have successfully completed NaNoWriMo. Every year since I heard about it I say This year I will join in on all the writing fun. Every year I’m at December 1 or 2 saying, Oh darn well maybe next year.

I think what I’ll have to do is start small. Realllllly small. Like maybe one sentence. And one week.

I’m going to get started on the perfect sentence from somewhere in the novel that I will likely never write. So here is my progress so far:

In fact

Yup. That’s it. Two words so far. Two letters, space, four more letters. No punctuation (yet). I’m leaning towards a comma next, but may go buck wild with a left parentheses or dash or maybe an ellipsis. You’ll just have to tune in next time to see.

By the way, I have “tweeted” my effort.

I mentioned here before that I Don’t Do Twitter. But after falling for listening to the advice of several people who are expert users, I decided to join in. But I am about ready to quit. I cannot seem to get the hang of it. I feel as though I am a latecomer to a large party, mingling around the room and catching one sentence only of 23 or 24 different conversations—none which I seem to be a central participant in.

We’ll see.

In the meantime I’d love if others participated in the first ever NaSeWriWee. I think I might actually be successful at this, and think you could be, too!
