I solve this problem by not writing a book and masturbating.

[-] [email protected] 17 points 3 months ago
[-] [email protected] 87 points 3 months ago

Yes. It is very easy to masturbate while not writing.

[-] [email protected] 25 points 3 months ago

Easy for you to say. I struggle with this.

So that's your trick, you write pamphlets instead of book, I see. I'll try that next time

[-] [email protected] 6 points 3 months ago

Bro. I swear to god me, you, and a user called “the piccard manoeuvre” are like the only three users on here.

Like I see y’all everywhere. I had discussions with you in many places at this point.

[-] [email protected] 11 points 3 months ago

Only 3 users? Don't you count us lurkers out, we're here too. We're always here... always.

I have a lot of free time at the moment, although that's going to end next year.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 3 months ago

Will you still have time to masturbate while not writing?

I hear you can save a lot of time by writing Lemmy comments while masturbating.

Impossible, i've tried so hard and still wrote at least a 3 pages story

[-] [email protected] 11 points 3 months ago

Or you could solve it by nut writing a book. Make it a two birds, one stone thing, but more like "many nuts, one book"

New Novel November

(November is National Novel Writing month in which you're encouraged to write a 50k+ word novel)

[-] [email protected] 61 points 3 months ago

I would like to know who in the fuck thinks they can write a novel in only a month.

[-] [email protected] 45 points 3 months ago

If college taught me anything, it's that I can write thousands of words per night. Typically fastest in the wee hours of the morning.

None of these words are good, mind you, but they are in fact words.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 3 months ago

Oh yeah. Some of my worst work is on those mega-inspired days where I sit for 10h and crank out 10000 words.

To this day I don’t know why I do that if I end up throwing most of it away.

Maybe it’s good to get bad plot out of the system.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 3 months ago

November is National Novel Writing month and December is National Edit the Terrible Novel You Just Wrote month.

If you can make time for 1,700 words a day starting on the 1st then by the end of the month you've exceeded 50k

Making time and having energy for 1,700 words a day on top of daily life activities and working a job is the trick.

I’ve done it. You’re not supposed to come up with a finished product in 30 days (although some people do). Mine was a first draft of roughly 55k words.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 3 months ago

I'm reading a short book by Patrick Rothfuss (The Narrow Road Between Desires). This dude is such a notoriously slow writer that it drives me crazy. He had the audacity to do an author's introduction where he said this was an existing story of his, but he added 15k words to it. I'm like... what is that, a couple weeks? Write faster, you bastard!

Nobody said it had to be a good novel.

Isaac Asimov. The guy was a fucking robot.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 3 months ago

Yeah, well, when you develop characters as much as he did, it's manageable, I guess.

He did some good world building, though - don't get me wrong, I feasted on the Hari/robot series several times over!

Does anyone actually do any those challenges? I always thought it was a joke.

[-] [email protected] 21 points 3 months ago

A lot of people do No Shave November, I assume anyone who says they do No Nut November is joking and I've never heard of the book one until now

[-] [email protected] 15 points 3 months ago

The communities for both of those challenges are so far apart that I doubt anyone does both.

Didn't know about the novel one, but I already forgone NNN when doctors said it was bullshit.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 3 months ago* (last edited 3 months ago)

National Novel Writing Month, often abbreviated NaNoWriMo, is an annual event encouraging people to finally write that novel they've always said they would. The goal is to write 50K words during the month. There are usually meet ups, writing workshops, and other gatherings so participants can encourage each other, share ideas, and generally have fun being part of a thing.

Edit to add: The "nation" is the USA I'm assuming. I'm in the USA and have only heard of it being a US thing. Presumably if you live somewhere else and want to write a book in November, the various online communities would be glad to have you though.

Since when do you have to write a 50k novel?

[-] [email protected] 8 points 3 months ago* (last edited 3 months ago)

They're talking about National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo) which is November.

So is self-flagellation, if you’re into self-denial and masochism. Make of that statement what you will.
