How’s my Nano? Well…

I’m at 17000-something right now, and that means that I have to write about 7000 words today to get caught up, and wow is that not happening.

I’m not working on only one story this time, and my original plan was to do a Sherlock (BBC) story, but the story that I had in mind is coming out as slow as molasses, and I’m currently hating it despite how amazing I know it would be (it’s been knocking about my head for a while now), so I’m working on something else right now.

I’ve moved on to Torchwood fanfiction. If you’re interested in the show, you’ll know that the end of season three is wrong in so many ways, and if you haven’t gotten there, then you’ll know that the end of season 2 is also horrible (and awesome, don’t forget awesome), and if you aren’t there yet, then you’ll know that the end of season 1 is horrible, but, like the end of season 2, awesome, especially if you watch Dr. Who, because then you’re also saying “OH MY GOD I SAW THAT EPISODE!”

Fun fact for you: When moving the copies of Doctor Who, to keep them from being stolen, they labeled them “Torchwood”, an anagram of Doctor Who.

Now I wait a moment as you spell out Torchwood out of Doctor Who, and Doctor Who out of Torchwood.

Go ahead, I did the same.

But, anyway, I’m doing a ‘Fix-It’ starting after season 3, and I have nearly 10,000 words of it written. When I post it, feel free to check it out (I’ll add two links at the end of this post)

How have I got 17-something k words if I only have about 10k of this story written. That’s me working on my HP fanfic, and my two other Sherlock stories, and adding in the 500-something words of my planned BBC Sherlock story, the one that’s hating on my brain.

Good Luck Fellow NaNo-ers, and for those following Lexy’s blog, know she’s working on extensions of the stories she’s posted on things like Red Writing Hood and Trifecta. HERE for a link to her story archives, maybe she’ll post her story somewhere (maybe on her blog?), I’ll bug her about it if you do 🙂

My Torchwood Fix-It story: And I Wake Up (Lexy, don’t read it before you see season 3.)

N.E.R.D is not a Bad Word.

I was thinking about how it seems as though my new friends have to now learn to equate Nerd with a good thing, as I use the word (as a good thing) constantly.

“What’s up?” “Nm, just nerding out and watching anime.” O_0

“hahaha” “hahaha, we’re such nerds” ….. 0_O

I honestly don’t see being a nerd as a bad thing, and in fact believe that it’s more of a compliment, but I don’t really remember that other people don’t quite see it as a compliment, and it takes them a minute to realize that I’m not being a jerk, or mean, or whatever. But my friends are learning now 😀

So I was thinking, how could it be put so that it would seem like a better thing?

Aha! Why not make it into an acronym?

Acronyms are cool. They are, really.

So Sanity pipes up with “Never, Ending…”

I say “Ride…. Never ending ride of… d…”

and Insanity says “DOOM!”

Immediately other sich d-words pop into my head.

Doom. Destruction. Disbelief. Detrimental. Duh.

None of these words will help in the process to make Nerd not be a Bad Word.

Huh. Nerd not be a bad word sounds a bit like a weird alliteration.

Alliteration is cool too.

Other D words, after some thought, would be Delight, or Daisy… or…

Well, Never Ending Ride of Delight sounds too weird in a way that even makes me laugh and think “aha, um, seriously? no.”

So maybe an Acronym wouldn’t be the best…

Aha! A spokesperson! That would be good…

So I Googled “Hot Nerd”, and saw the perfect spokesperson to why being a nerd, or being nerdy, isn’t a bad thing.

Aah, David Tennant...

He’s been in Harry Potter (Barty Crouch Jr.), Doctor Who (the 10th Dr. Who), Hamlet (as Hamlet, and he even got to act with Patrick Stewart), voice acted in How to Train Your Dragon (was Spitelout), played Casanova in the Casanova miniseries (in I think 2005?), is Peter in Fright Night, and has been in SOOO many different things, but is still a nerd! look him up on iMDb if you don’t believe me.

How can you even THINK that being a nerd would be a bad thing if we’ve got David Tennant on our side?

And thus, all arguments are defeated.
