NaNoWriMo Doom Clock
I made this for myself when flirting with the prospect of writing last autumn, but I felt compelled to clean it up and share it with the world for this year's contest. Starting November 1, it's going to start counting up from zero to 50,000, which will be reached at midnight on the 1st of December. It was designed as a tool to inspire, but I think the actual effect might be more troubling. I guess that depends whether you're on pace or behind.

Great. I didn't want to actually sleep during November or anything...

Needs more ominous ticking.

So, you actually want to see your life tick away minute by minute?

Well, when you put it that way, I'm half inclined to break every timer that I own.

I am just about tempted to try NaNoWriMo again this year. I did it once a good number of years ago, but this time, I don't know, I feel my "random musing" mode, which some might term "bullshitting," feels stronger, like I could just flow a lot better. It might end up looking more like a collection of essays though.

I have been enjoying posting the link to your doom clock as a comment on every one of my friends' Facebook statuses mentioning their NaNoWriMo progress (or lack thereof). Thank you for this excellent tool of torment.
