None of those exclamation points were consensual on my part, I’ll have you know. And just for those who weren’t raised on the Disney channel, let me rephrase:
NaNoWriMo: All in the Family.
NaKniSweMo: Either Good Times or All in the Family, it depends on you look at it.
This deserves a list of terms: NaNoWriMo is internet-speak for National Novel Writing Month. NaBloPoMo is the same for National Blog Posting Month. And NaKniSweMo is what we crafties have created in turn, meaning National Knit a Sweater Month. They all take place in November, and require 50,000 words (or stitches), and for the participants to work on their novel/blog/sweater every day.
I’m SO not writing a novel.
But, I can do the blogging and the knitting. I started my Mrs. Darcy sweater a few days ago, but we’re just going to pretend that that was done yesterday. And I did a TON of work (seriously, about two hours) on a very detailed draft of my Christmas list, soon to be posted, yesterday, so even though nothing was posted, we’ll be okay.
Ready, set, GO!
