There Are Blow Flies At Camp

So, the good news at Camp NaNoWriMo is that I have been dutifully slogging away at my 1,667 words every day and have even built up a two day buffer.

The bad news is that apart from individual statistics, there are "cabin" statistics, and four of the twelve people assigned to my cabin never showed up for camp. They have written zero words. That's 200,000 words for the month that other people will have to write as far as the cabin statistics are concerned.

I mentioned this to other people to see if this was a common problem, and found that 33% DOA is not that bad. One cabin had 10/11 people not show up. We all made jokes about the flies buzzing around the dead bodies

In the grand scheme of things, this isn't that big of a deal, I know. Still, why sign up the week before if you aren't going to even try?

People are flaky. That's really all I have to say.

At least I quit before I signed up!

And for that I thank you!
