Nano movement…

Three thousand three hundred words today. Which could be written as “3300 words,” but that goes against the spirit that is NaNoWriMo.

I finished Chapter One tonight, and had intended to post it. Unfortunately, I’m having some trouble going from my neatly formatted Word document to plain text for posting — I keep losing quotes. I’ll have to sort that out later. But for right now?

    This is exactly why I am going to write my novel in LaTeX. (-;

    *blink* You’re a genius!

    The LaTeX formatting instructions will increase word count! 50k, here I come!

    And you better watch it, Jonny boy… me and that gal who used to share your office are just waiting to sign you up…

    A simple Unix stream filter (I forget the name) will strip the LaTeX formatting commands from the text, so using that with ‘wc’ will give you an accurate wordcount with only two pipes.

    You both know that I can’t write good fiction. I have a hard enough time when I’m actually telling the truth.

  4. Andrew says:

    Jonathan, you obviously don’t understand the concept of NaNoWriMo. An inflated wordcount is preferable to an accurate wordcount. So skip the LaTeX format stripping, and just send it to wc. 🙂

    You’re actually a fairly entertaining guy when you feel like talking — don’t sell yourself short. You could do it.
