New NaNoWriMo Rules

This is a fun tag I came across on twitter: it's #newNaNoWriMorules.

If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is-it stands for National November Writing Month. It's a spree where writers across the world vow to compose a 50,000 word novel by the end of November, starting the first day of the month. The important part is not to write a perfect novel, but to meet your word count.

Lots of writers are talking about it on twitter and adding their own new set of silly rules. Here are some entertaining ones I've seen:

@danialexis: This year, you must replace all uses of "said" with "ejaculated."

@chuckwendig: -- This year, to "win" NaNoWriMo you must kill and eat five other aspiring authors.

@arogers907: You must write each of the 50 shades of your novel to win.

@chuckwendig:  -- Your novel must be fanfiction based on fanfiction.

@MauStCha::#newNaNoWriMorules 5 gazillion bonus points to peeps who write the entire manu w/out ever hitting 'Save As'

 @FebruaryGrace: In order to win you must let your mother read your entire, unedited manuscript. Aloud. To your grandmother.

 @JonathanDalar: To increase word count, up to 5 adjectives per noun may be used. "The road to hell is paved with adverbs" be damned! .

@schafecast: Yes I am using to make it a drinking game. For example take a sip everytime the delete key is pressed.

@awkwardjimmy: drink every time your protagonist has an emotion

@GamergrrlESL: : Get a shin kick in the shin for each redundancy. 

Any of you participating in NaNoWriMo? Or read something funny about NaNoWriMo online?
