like AskMe? help on NaNoWriMo fora! November 4, 2006 3:24 PM   Subscribe

People who enjoy Ask might like to spend a bit of time on the NaNoWriMo forums this month, particularly the ones where they ask for help on making their plots and characters realistic.

This year, How to take Congress hostage, how much of a body would vultures get through in three days, and how to deliver a baby outdoors. In short, lots of interesting questions getting asked and answered. Last year, a (presumably very young) novelist just wanted to know what having sex was like.

Please don't remind me that I really should be writing my novel right now instead of being sick and drinking tea and surfing the internets and watching a movie.

Questions about sex and sexy things are a yearly standard in the nano forums, and a source of much mirth and joy.

Which reminds me that one year I got quoted in some puffy USA Today nano piece as having volunteered, in a similar forum query, to pull something out of my ass. Figuratively.

Please don't remind me that I really should be writing my novel instead of working 14 hr days and passing out when I get home.
