4.6 Million Words...Maybe



So, it's good news for the typewriters and the students, but bad news for my Netflix Poirot addiction. Yes, I am a mystery nerd. I will let my students make a decision about their own work, but I will be sharing my progress on this very blog. I can say that I am more than a little nervous. Also, as you can see by the badge, I am in the youth-y version of NaNo.

  1. You have every reason to be proud. And I'm exited to see what kind of outcome comes from your work this year!

  2. It is truly noble what you have done thus far, Ryan. Whether your class manages to churn out 4.6 mil words or not doesn't matter.

  3. I am excited to hear that you have your class involved in the NaNo brigade. You & your students should be proud of that in itself and even prouder when NaNO is over and you can reflect on the accomplishments no matter how many words and completed works.

  4. I'll enjoy the updates on this project. Make sure you post occasionally to the brigade forum!

  5. Amazing work! a whole classroom of wrimos, and a substantial influx of Brigadiers - I'd say you're becoming a professional creative instigator (:

    PS: I'm just 4 episodes away from completing my Poirot queue. I'm procrastinating them because I really savor David Suchet's performances, especially in the episodes of the later part of the series. I'll be sad when I'm out of new ones. I may have to re-watch my Nero Wolfe & Ellery Queen episodes just so I can forget enough to be able to re-watch Poirot again.

  7. Seconded, thirded, and fourthed! I've been trying to get my own kids (offspring, not students) to participate.
