LiLaWriMo

That's right bitches, we're officially NaNo-ing this year. Because obviously it's like the best idea ever to attempt to write an entire novel in one month immediately after one half of your writing team has popped out a baby and is operating on 4 hours of sleep per night. I mean, it's not like she has anything better to do, like, oh, I don't know, attempt to keep child services at bay.

Anyway, we'll still be on our five day a week posting schedule because we clearly have some kind of death wish. Stay tuned to find out if this is ends in twin divorces. All signs point to YES.

You people are clearly masochists. I'm not saying I don't have a lot of respect for those who can handle NaNo, I do, I just can't imagine doing it without everything else getting in the way, let alone on top of it all.

Props to you LiLa, unless you truly do drive yourselves batty that is. :)

Absolutely!

Good luck ladies!

Creepy Query Girl said...

oh wow. Good luck you guys. Just thinking about scrambling to finish a book in one month with everything else going on makes me sick to my stomache. You gals are braver than I.

Nicole Zoltack said...

Yay, I'm not the only crazy one! My lil guy is almost 3 months. And I'm doing Nano and PiBo and hope to still blog M-F. Eek!

I think insanity is kind of the point here. :) Hooray for NaNo!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

You go, girls! And don't worry - we won't tell your husbands! Ha ha ha! :-)

Paul Greci said...

Go. Go. Go.

roxy said...

You have a wicked work ethic, ladies, but I don't think your followers will allow you two to divorce.

Krispy said...

You two are CRAZY but amazing! I don't know where you find the energy, but yay! Good luck!

It's only been a day of NaNo and I'm already very behind. :P

My Psychic Friend says you will not survive this. Or you will revive us.
Something like that...damn your lisp, Dionne Warwick!!

Somehow, I think that if anyone can do it, you two can.

At the very least, you could bribe CPS by your soon-to-be literary fame. Maybe they'd overlook the neglect of children in exchange for a signed copy of your book. :D

Little Ms J said...

You are both clearly insane. I'm trying to decide who instigates and who enables.

Jonathon Arntson said...

You had me at bitches.

Speaking of which: YAY Gretchen. "Called it."

Kristal Shaff said...

Good luck! And Happy Writing.

Elana Johnson said...

You go on with your bad selves, yo!

Good luck with the wordage--I'm right there with ya.

Divorces can be great. Especially if you can move to another country.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

:-0 !!!
Of course, there are two of you--so, like, you get to split the word count???

Michelle said...

yay! I love NaNo

K. M. Walton said...

You GO girls...you go. If any set of writing sisters can pull off nano it's LiLa!

Wannabe Writer said...

Can the baby type yet? If so, maybe he can cover the blog while you two work on NaNo!

Lori W. said...

Crazy!! Sleep deprivation is clearly getting to Lisa. What's your excuse, Laura? Love it though. Best of luck to you in NaNo and in, especially in, divorce aversion.

You two are NUTS!

My 14-year-old is NaNo-ing this year. She's doing the adult version of 50,000 words rather than set a lower word count as in the version geared to Young People ("Euww, that's for, like, PRE-SCHOOLERS, Mom!")

She didn't think it was funny when I asked her if she was allowed to count all of the times the word "like" appeared.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
