Share our love of handbags, books, and all things gossip...okay, and Twilight too.

We're two delightfully crass gals who spend an inordinate amount of time texting and e-mailing one another throughout the day. We've decided to expound on some of our best work. Please to enjoy.

30 Posts in 30 Days

In honor of a fragile little human's commitment to write her first original story, Colloquial, during NaNoWriMo, I am committing to writing 30 posts in 30 days . What's NaNoWriMo anyway?

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.

Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It’s all about quantity, not quality. The kamikaze approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.

Make no mistake: You will be writing a lot of crap. And that’s a good thing. By forcing yourself to write so intensely, you are giving yourself permission to make mistakes. To forgo the endless tweaking and editing and just create. To build without tearing down.


Guess who else is participating in NaNoWriMo?

I know writing 30 posts isn't really a big deal considering these ladies will all be writing 50,000 words each in 30 days and tons of other bloggers do it every day, but we haven't ever done a post a day here! I'm not promising that any of the posts will actually be good or even readable, and we will probably lose followers, but too bad. So starting November 1, brace yourselves. WeBitePrettyHard is going to have a new post every day! And don't worry, I promise we won't have Twilight news or spoilers.

And just to make this interesting, for every comment that I get on posts written during NaNoWriMo, starting November 1 12:00 AM EST through November 30 11:59 PM EST, I will donate $1 to CCFA (Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America).
This is an organization near and dear to fragile, and I hope that I get to send them a big donation*! Plus your comments will help to spur me on!

So go check out
fragile's post about her new story and make sure you comment every day on this blog in November! Tell your friends, neighbors, and that creepy guy down the hall that you have been secretly crushing on for months.

Can you guess who made this awesome banner?

* Donation maximum is $500

I totally have a creepy guy down the hall that I've been crushing on. Actually, he lives across the street. And I'm probably the creepy one. Whatever. Anyway, if you do a post a day for the entire month of November, then I will absoultely walk over there on the 30th, knock on his door, and tell him I've been thinking dirty things about him for the past 6 months. Deal? :)

OoooOOoo Fire that is a great idea, the idea to donate for comments is wonderful :)
*cough* I will bombard you with comments :))

But this will be tough one post a day? I'm very curious about what you will write :)

I wish you fine ladies lots of luck (you won't need it of course, because the fact that you ooze awesomeness should make daily posts easy). We aim for a daily post M-F and take the weekends off...but we slack now and then.

@Meg - You're a fucking riot. I can't wait for the recap of your trip across the street care of WBPH ;)

I'm excited! *claps hands and does happy dance around office while co-workers glare at me like I'm hitting the crack pipe*

cutie said...

YAY!!! I love this idea!!! =D And totally support you. I once posted 41 times in one month and it was all random crap. hehehehe I know fragile must be touched that you are donating to CCFA. *hugs Fire* I am a HUGE fan of crotches that are on fire. ;)

Good luck and Rob Speed...
I can't do 30 in 30. I would self combust from blog pressure. I suppose I could cheat and just post 30 picspams of RobPorn...I mean that's like nothing for me. I got a lot of RobPorn. A lot.
A lot.
