NaNoWriMo and funny picture

It's hard to believe, but I'm actually planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this year (albeit the Youth Writing Project version, where my word count will only be 25,000 words).

Remember back when I got Super Mario Galaxy 2 and a Moya CD for my birthday and commented on how it felt weird to mention Mario and Moya in the same *deep breath* sentence, this was not the case with Mario and Enya? That made me wonder what it would be like if Mario, Luigi, Enya, and Moya all worked together in Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Moya questioned Mario logic while Enya simply accepted it. pathvain_aelien was going to write me a drabble for my birthday, and I suggested this as an idea for it. However, since it would be difficult to write this as just a drabble, I eventually decided to write it on my own as a full-length story for NNWM (why is it NaNoWriMo when NNWM is even shorter?). I sure hope I can still sign up after October and that I'm allowed to add drawings later (I doubt I'll be able to make all of the drawings I want in 30 days).

Also, does anyone who's done NNWM know if I can post my story to my LJ? I'm pretty sure it's allowed, but I wanna make sure.

Now for the funny picture. In Government we had to look up things about elections in our state, such as the requirements for voting, etc. I found this funny picture on one of the pages that I found my information from:

Good for you!!!

Yes, the rules for NaNoWriMo are pretty open - you can post your story in LJ, or anywhere else you want. :)

There's more info in the FAQ, particularly the section on "the basics."

Woohoo! I'm cheering you on! :-D

Thanks!

And I've read the FAQ, but it didn't quite answer some of my questions - that's why I asked.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
