Deniz over at the Girdle of Melian has written a short story using her favourite NaNoStupids. There are some great discussions going on re the same at the NaNo Ate My Brain forum on the main website.
(def: NaNoStupid- naughty things that creep into your ultra-fast, unedited writing, like typos, bad dialogue, silly tags, odd turns of phrase, hilarious misspellings, repeated words, etc etc).
I thought I'd post this up with my favourite NaNoStupid so far (it's brand new, written today, and I only just found it on the re-read and laughed myself silly). And I'd love to hear yours, too- what's the funniest/ worst/ most frequent one you've found so far?
If your answer is, I don't know, I'm not re-reading my stuff til December, good job! But for the rest of us, dish.
Here's mine- trying to describe my male MC moving cat-like through the shadows, I decreed him, "smooth as a cat".
Ha ha :) There are so many hilarious connotations to that, I don't know where to start- but none of them are what I wanted to convey.
How 'bout you?
