It seems like the entire writerly blogosphere is in NaNo mode…whether you are participating or just cheering everybody on from the sidelines!
I’ve even added to my mantra. It now goes something like this:
Break a pencil.
Shred a notebook.
Jam a keyboard.
Thanks to Melissa Maygrove for the third part. So while we’re on a roll, anybody want to add more? Feel free to play along in the comment section…

It’s time for WHACKY WORDS! Remember, this is supposed to be FUN!
Thank you to everybody who played along for the previous word. The real meaning of the word Hebesphalmology is – the study of juvenile delinquency. http://www.kokogiak.com/logolepsy/ow_h.html#hebesphalmology. The definition that captured my imagination was posted by Southpaw, who explained it as follows: the blood of the Greek goddess used to cure toe fungus. Congratulations, Holly. That’s a gold mine waiting to be discovered. Imagine the impact on podiatric medicine? LOL
Today’s word is
The prototype for a highly advanced, futuristic networking system that will link more than 50 social media platforms to a central point.
That’s my definition. (The word does have a meaning, but you are invited to play along by providing your own original meaning. No cheating and looking up the word. I’ll post the meaning next week). So do you wanna play along? Leave your definition in the comment section below.

So are you adding to my NaNoWriMo Mantra? Joining the IWSGCC ? Playing along with my Whacky Words?
Don’t forget that it’s also the Realms Faire week, over at Mary Pax’s blog!
There are TONS of prizes up for grabs. I’ve been on such a roll over the last few weeks. I won 11 e-books and a $50 Amazon gift card. So now I’m headed to the Realms Faire to see if I can continue the winning streak… See you there!
