A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

Two things

One, it was brought to my attention that I have an odd propensity for using the word "Woot!" in my posts. This seems to me patently unfair to other fun and exciting exclamations of joy and/or surprise, and I'd like to open the floor for suggestions of other injections. I'm rather fond of the idea of strangely outdated sayings, like "Cor blimey!" and "Cracking!". Doyce suggests "Shazzam!" What have you got?

Second, I keep getting emails from the good people at Nanowrimo. I'm 100% certain I can't manage a full novel this year, but what do folks think about starting up another Storyball? I'm thinking the 2000 words every five days or so would help me stay on track with my revisions on HtDaS. Or maybe I'm just crazy. Opinions?

Suggestions for injections? Like cortisone? Or insulin?

Oh, wait... You probably meant "interjections."




And on the negative side...

Aw, carp!


Bows! (A simpler form of "fiddlesticks.")

I hope this was of some help. And that you're not beating me up in effigy for the "injections" crack.

I DID mean "interjections"! I've got the Schoolhouse Rock song running through my head to prove it!


I mean, pish-posh!

I've been a long standing proponent for "fiddlesticks," on the negative interjection side of things.

For positives? Goodness, but the mind boggles: groovy, swell, dynomite, crazy daddy-o.

Or, for astonishment, jeepers, golly, and geewillikers.

Used in a sentence:

"Jeepers, another NaNoWriMo Storyball? Groovy!"

Positives: "Huzzah!" "Cool!"

Negatives: "Frell!" "Dagnabbit!"

And,, re, Storyball -- "Yeah, baby!"

Lee said a couple of days ago he intends to begin using "crivens." But then I poked him in the side, and he didn't. Personally, I find there's still nothing as good as religion or bodily functions for cussing, obscenities tho' they are not.

I'm going to try a novel this year, but I'll try to do Storyball, too, if we can get that going...can we focus on a person this time, or a thing? Not that places are bad, but I don't want to get in a rut.

Better late than never...I chime in with "Peachy wild."
