2012 – November #5

Errol: I’m hanging about in chat in my local region, and then someone was mentioning they were waiting until midnight. It took me ten minutes to clue in to the fact they were waiting till midnight because they wanted to see the comic. And then I realized, “Hey, I didn’t post it.”
So I madly rushed to put it up! So sorry guys it’s 5 minutes late!
 Who waits till midnight? I just assumed people read it in the morning!
Oh, and by the way, Happy Birthday KaliaFerret! 😀
Debbie: Great to hear from Bessie, Drew, Paige, Kathrine, Kat, Emaria & others in comments after the last comic, who have been doing NaNo when they were teens (or who ARE teens).
For fellow NaNoRebels out there who are writing picture books in addition to novels: PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month) registration is open until Nov.7th.

  1. You kidding? I’m a couple time zones away so I get to see it at 10:00. Yes! *pumps fist* time-space continuum etc.! (and then I usually go see it later the next day when I’m procrastinating…like now…)

    1. Heh. Unlike Errol, I tend to crash early & wake early — so I usually don’t see Errol’s comments (the one he posts under the comic) until I check in the morning. Hm…maybe I shouldn’t say “unlike Errol” since he also seems to wake early. When does Errol actually sleep? Maybe he NEVER SLEEPS.

  2. Beware of anyone who says “Yo” in the 21st century. They are cool, but not necessarily up-to-date.
    I think I’m going to like Ed. In a “would cheerfully strangle him if we ever met in real life” sort of way.

      1. I think it sounds right, I just couldn’t resist making an obscure Discworld reference.
        I don’t know what to suggest in its place. It’s been *mumble* years since I was a teenager.

  3. Hey, I’m on GMT here, so I obly check them in the morning because of the time difference- midnight your time is 5am over here, and if I’m at work in the morning I wake at 6am- and I will check NaNotoons before heading for work.

  4. I can relate to staying up to see the new NaNoToon. I have a tendency to check in on these more than once a day so I am going to fill in with reading the older ones. I can hardly wait!

  5. I love Nanotoons, they always put me in the mood to write. l like the new characters as well. Good to see some of the younger writers getting acknowledged. I went to a Kick-Off party and there was only one other girl who was also in high school. It’s a bit daunting to think that you are writing amongst mostly adults, but the truth is we all have so much in common, our ages do not really matter. XD

  6. Hey, these are cool! Only found them recently. I’m fourteen and this is my first NaNo which is very exciting and also very motivating. I’m so glad I found out about it and wish I had ages ago.
    I’ve reached 20,000 words today (YAY!!!) and so have come here to catch up on the comics and have a break. Is there really a new one every day? I’ll have to be checking back way more often. They’re awesome! 😀
