nanowrimo typing frenzy


Hardly any time to blog, November, Nanowrimo, madly writing novel on typewriters, using every typewriter I own with few exceptions, now convinced of superiority of Hermes Baby, surpassed only by Adler Tippa late model Dutch made types with so little effort, but still drawn to Hermes and Hermes clones such as Olivetti Tropical, Silver Seiko, all alike, how did those Japanese get away with this copy, don’t care, smells like cigarettes, noisy but works flawlessly typical Japanese machine no, again Hermes Baby, seafoam green, all plastic so what works great, must get back to typing now, see you in December, 30,000 words done, 20,000 more to go, story not even close to being finished what do I do, will have to keep going or else cut the plot short, not enough time..

    Good luck with NaNo. I’ve never used some of the machines you mentioned, but I have a Baby and it is a nice snappy little machine.

  2. I’m actually having a different problem – my story is feeling more novella length. I’m just past 30,000 words myself, and am looking down the runway at the rest of the novel, wondering if there is enough story to fill it. I think it’ll be a squeeze at the finish.
