Smote? Smited? Whatever. More NaNoWriMo Stuff

There's a thread at NaNoWriMo for posting your personal 10 Commandments for doing NaNo.

Here are my Ten Commandments for NaNoWriMo:

1. Thou shalt Tweet word count to keep oneself accountable for writing every day.
2. Thou shalt not then spend an hour checking email or Tweeting AFTER the word count Tweet.
3. Thou shalt not spend an hour on Facebook whining about thou doesn't have time to write.
4. Thou shalt not pad word count by having every character shrug/roll their eyes/nod knowingly after every line of dialogue.
5. Thou shalt not let Full Tilt Poker lead thou into temptation.
6. Thou shalt surrender thy laundry and household duties to hubby until the daily writing is done.
7. Thou shalt not subsist entirely on Baby Ruths, no matter how much they nourish the soul.
8. Thou shalt go nowhere with out notebook, as it is thy rod and staff.
9. Thou shalt let the characters tell their story, as this is all about them.
10. Thou shalt remember that this is supposed to be fun!
