A shift is needed…

It’s been eight days of solid writing; working so very hard on getting The Pharaoh done.  But the good news is…we’re ahead.  Very ahead.  The fact that Lizzy and I have written over 28,000+ words in eight days means that we will reach our goal of 50,000 words by the middle of November.  Mind you, this only means that the goal has been reached, not that the book is done.  But once we reach the goal, the story just needs to come to a nice conclusion.  It’ll be like smooth sailing after the goal is reached!  It’s going to be a great moment!

That being said, Lizzy and I are taking a day off.  Since, generally, Lizzy writes in the mornings and I in the evenings, I get tonight off.  She had some stuff to do today anyway.  But since we’re ahead by more than half way, and since we have plenty of time to complete the novel yet.  We’re allowing ourselves a little break.

So tonight, I have a night off.  I may just go to bed early…I don’t know yet.

Current word count for The Pharaoh: 28,651/50,000

Writing resumes tomorrow, as will my posts here at The Paradigm!

Andrew Ronzino, the Inventor of the Ronziphone™

P.S. If you don’t know what the Ronziphone™ is, I shall explain it.  Ahem…the Ronziphone™ can literally do anything but cook food.  The Ronziphone™ motto is, “There’s an App for That!”™.  If you can think it, the Ronziphone™ can do it, no limitations.  Seriously, you want a million dollars?  There’s an app for that!  The “Give Me a Million Dollars Now”™ app!  Need to blow up the world and have it reform as if nothing ever happened?  There’s an app for that!  The “Earth Destruction/Reconstruction”™ app!   Do you want to shoot George Lucas in the head for creating Jar-Jar Binks?  There’s an app for that!  The “Shoot George”™ app!   It can do anything…unless you want to cook food, it can’t do that.  The Ronziphone™ 2.0 will be able cook food though.  That comes out sometime next year.

  1. Writing a novel as a team? Sounds very interesting. I’d say you’ve earned a day off. Congratulations and happy writing!

    • Yep, a co-authorship. This was my first time doing NaNo, and I didn’t want it to do it alone. This is Lizzy’s fourth year, and along wither the project with me, she is also doing a personal NaNo project. She’s awesome that way.

      Thank you for the encouragement!

  2. Speaking of the Ronzi phone, there is a new app being developed for the iPhone that tests you for STDs. I kid you not, it requires you to pee on a special usb stick and plug it in to the iPhone, where it will be analyzed for STDs by the app. It is being created in Britain by a team of reproductive health doctors.

    Again, this is not a joke.

    • Bah! We’ve had that for months! It’s called the “Does Walker Say You Have AIDS?”™ app. Chuck Norris comes on the screen and tells you whether you have an STD or not. No peeing required!

      But seriously…that’s messed up.

  3. Ah, so this explains why I got two replies today on our epic message.
    Stupid facebook for getting rid of our count. I’m so curious what we’re at now. :3
