"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
The problem with that mode of writing is the (nx100)+1 and (nx100)+2 words are inevitably YAY! KITTEN!The reader might find that taxing, after a while.
Awesome inspiration to write more - ima haz kittiez....(Did I do that right? Is there a universal translator for kitty language?)
That site got me through NaNo this year! Nothing as inspiring as getting kittens for treat (even only as photos. Wonder how many real kittens I would have?)
"This 100 words makes me realize how hard my clients work. When they say 2000 words a day, I secretly thought...yeah, is that so hard?"You just made me proud to be a writer.I found Written? Kitten! This past November from the NaNo crowd and I (unsuccessfully) tried to pit it against Write or Die. Something didn't feel right when I was torturing a character... with a kitten looking at me. *shakes head* I'll be using both writing prods.
I much prefer "Write or Die" as motivation to write. It stops me from checking facebook every five minutes to see if anything's happened.
I absolutely LOVE this. So fun, so cute, so awesome. The only thing that would be better is if I could actually hug the kitten. ;-) Thanks for this.
It's cute and I can see it how someone struggling with word count could use this tool effectively. If I'm ready to work on my novel, putting down 8-10 thousand words a day isn't a challenge (except for that having to go to work and having to watch kids thing). I can't type fast enough. If I'm not ready (the novel's still developing in my subconscious), kittens won't help. I mean I can write a hundred words - I'm talkative - heck I probably have nearly a hundred here - but they won't be useful. They'll be crap that will turn me off working on *that* particular project for the duration if not ever.But *I* am weird.
So cute! Thanks for sharing.
Can haz kittn, now?
