Old Blog, New Blog  
Anyone who cares can check out my new Wordpress blog at: http://yakboy.co.cc/

If you so desire, you can add it to the feed reader of your choice, and if that so happens to be LJ you can add yakboy_co_cc

I'm also going to get rid of my Twitter aggregation posts here, so I don't have an idle LJ just spamming you with that stuff and, besides, there are other ways of following my Tweets: http://twitter.com/yakboy

As I say, this LJ isn't being abandoned entirely, I still plan to post my poetry here, and perhaps anything else that doesn't fit into the new blog format (maybe the odd YouTube video or what-not).

See you on the flip-side!

I have rather conflicted feelings towards innowrimo1. On the one hand I think it is a little bit of an insult to the long hours and hard work that genuinely go into publishable novels. On the other hand, encouraging people to write is hardly a bad thing. On the third hand, November has traditionally been a fairly busy month for me.

Er, that's not to say that people don't spend long hours doing hard work on their nanowrimo projects, but nanowrimo ignores two fundamental points about novel writing:

1. Novels are not complete after a hastily written first draft.
2. It is nigh impossible to find a 50,000 word "novel" on the shelf at the local bookstore.

This little gem from the nanowrimo FAQ, is exactly why people like myself get their hackles up about the whole thing:

We don't use the word "novella" because it doesn't seem to impress people the way "novel" does.
