I love the look.  I wish you could get the protection of a full face with that look!

Recent NaNoWriMo writing clip from today:

Gordon Voranes was your typical guy.  Where typical meant Gordon Voranes was a sociopath and guy meant he was anti- social, ill tempered, menace to society.  Of course there was very little society left to be a menace to.  Gordon Voranes rose to power among the remaining people in the city of Milwaukee Wisconsin in no small part because of his willingness to take whatever he wanted or needed with violent resolve.  Also he was just magnetic and dangerous enough to have attracted a band of like minded marauding hooligans who now work for him.

Tools I'm using toward my NaNoWriMo success, because failure isn't an option, are as follows:

Lenovo ThinkPad T400 running Ubuntu 12.10 (although any Unix like operating system suits me, this happens to be what's installed at the moment.)
This laptop has one of the best keyboards ever installed on a portable computer in the history of portable computers (See Below)

I'm also using a combination of FocusWriter to do local writing, and then I'm copying and pasting my progress into Yarny.me to get a fairly accurate word count, and a second level of "off site" backups.

Finally I'm uploading a copy of my book automatically with scripts to my Pogoplug cloud file server at home, my Google Drive, and a box.com folder.

If I some how manage to lose all of those things I deserve what happens to me.

So let's hear it Google+ what tools/software/methods are you using to write your masterpieces?

NaNoWriMo is only 2 hours and 10 minutes away here in Austin Texas.  Here's the Theme Song for Today....  Korn - Blind

Listen through the first 60 seconds at a minimum.

Can it be November yet? I want to start the fact sprint to 50,000 words commonly referred to as +NaNoWriMo! With me epic team of mutant ninja turtles.

Just to get things flowing, my main character's last name is Golden, and my main title will be "Golden's Rule."

Is it safe to share your book titles for +NaNoWriMo! in advance of the actual event?  I'm pretty sure I'm a pantster since I have little more than a last name of my main character, book title, and a few games/movies/books to draw inspiration from for how I think the plot might progress.

Pantsers with titles?  I'm scared now.

This is #NaNoWriMo month.  As such I'm now going to narrow the focus on my Google Plus page so it only shows me posts from people who are also writing. 

I'm beyond sick and tired of political posts from both sides of the spectrum.

I broke 10,000 words!  That's 1/5 of my book done!

Right now I"m kicking Donkey, but please, come back around in 15 days when I'm wondering why I ever wanted to write this book in the first place and totally want to quit!

This is a good pace.  I think I need to keep it up.  5020 words in 24h 3m.

47 minutes into my first NaNoWriMo and I have 1632 Words.  Not bad for someone who started with a last name, and a very thin idea.

T-Minus 21 hours before I can start on my +NaNoWriMo: North Texas Rough Writers project in Austin, TX!  This is my first year, and I honestly can't wait to start abusing my keyboard by pounding out the words.

Here's a shout out to my awesome team of Mutant Ninja Turtles +Turtle Power! I can't help but think the penalty of wearing a +Chicago Bears jersey for a week as a life long +Green Bay Packers fan is just the motivation I need to crush 50,000 words.  This Packers fan wouldn't be caught dead in a Bears Jersey. :)
