Day 28 - 3 days until the start of NNWM

FSN 111028

No pen, no ink, no table, no room, no time, no quiet, no inclination.

— James Joyce

So what’s a Nano Writer to do when the muse takes off and leaves us high and dry? Sometimes a pleasant, physical activity helps gives us some distance to work out the problem. So take a walk. Fold some laundry. Or instead, fold some really cute origami “plot bunnies” - design by Instructables web site member Alberta Leong

Step by step instructions can be found here. Fold a bunch and pass them out at your next write-in for good luck! Or write a short prompt or words of encouragement on the paper before you fold it and keep a stash nearby for inspiration.

Do you have a “lucky” token or mascot you keep nearby when you write, Nano Writer? I have a plush dragon to help keep me in the zone - not to mention the dozen or so ninja plot bunnies I’ve scattered around my keyboard and books to remind me to keep it fun.

Three more days Nano Writers! Keep writing!

I have Avogadro, who is a mole in a lab coat made out of exactly 26.98 grams of aluminum foil (er, for the non-chemists, 26.98 grams of aluminum = 1 mole = 6.022 x 10^23 atoms, where that last value is Avogadro's Number. Yes I am a geek.). I suspect he may be about to get some friends, though!

I have Jeremiah - a pewter-coloured plastic gargoyle who sits next to my monitor. Behind me on the other side of the room is another gargoyle named Geoffrey. Geoffrey is a more friendly looking chap, whereas Jeremiah looks slightly bonkers and is more of a 'traditional' gargoyle!
