HELP! I need HELP!

Download wordart here

Yesterday I finished my novel! It was such a great feeling I bragged about it to all my friends. Orange Croc Guy pretended to be unimpressed, but later told me how proud he was. (He hasn't read it yet. LOL!)

Today I uploaded it to the NaNoWriMo site for the official word count only to find that I was almost 5,000 words short. After freaking out I read lots of posts about how the word count can be off for different programs. Some add words and some take words away.

How can that happen? I mean a word is a word, right?

Anyway, the only word count that matters is the official one at NaNoWriMo and their's says that I need more words. Lots more!

I've been going back to add stuff, but I think I'm taking out just as much as I'm putting in. (That's why they tell you not to edit now!) I've decided that I need to just add another chapter. That means I need another loser boyfriend for Ginger to meet up with.

Now, I know you guys haven't read about any of the losers from her past yet, but there are some big ones. lol! I need help thinking of another one. I thought about writing a fajita delivery guy into the book, but I just can't make him a loser. My delivery guy is just way too hot for that!Plus, I plan on marrying him someday. He just doesn't know it yet. lol!

Want to help me out? Tell me some stories about the losers you've dated in the past. You know the ones you thought were "all that" at the time, but looking back you say, "What the heck was I thinking?" You can also share stories about the guys your friends or children have dated. Don't be shy! We've all dated "those" guys.

I'm hoping to get some ideas that I can combine together for the ultimate loser!

I've got until midnight on November 30th to finish up and get another word count. Please help!

Just think of all the laughs we can share while telling our stories!

  3. I can think of some crazy stories from dating but none were "big loser" stories. *sigh* My wish for you is that the words flow with great ease the next time you open the file and that the addition will be the perfect chapter!

  4. Love this sentiment - I've certainly had days like this. So sorry about the word count on your novel - BUT - that's good news for us because there will be more to read. Have a great day.

  5. Hey Ginger, I'm loving your novel. Sorry your short on the words. You're very creative so I bet you can imagine something up. I only had a few boyfriends before Jo and the first one only wanted my virginity and broke up right after, the second is an egotistical creep that broke up with me after I got a little sick and he thought I was prego's or something (He kept making me take preg tests though they were negative)Never found out why I was sick - they said I was depressed, the 3rd I actually moved in with and tried to develope trust just to find out that he'd been cheating on me, stealing my money (car payment/rent) to buy drugs I didn't know he was taking. I ended up sending him packing back to his moms house. He tried to get with me later but I told him I was marrying someone (My JOSE) and to leave me alone. Never heard from him again.....so far. So that's my looser list. Jose was my prince charming.

  6. Well my loser boyfriend also turned out to be my loser husband!!! We date for years before we got married. Then we got married. And then he decides Hmmmmm.... I want Big Boys Toys more!!!! So he divorces me...tells everyone it is cuz he can't get along with my daughter. Which is a BIG lie!!!! He moves back home with his mommy and daddy which he saves BIG time money cuz he doesn't have to pay a cent to live there. He doesn't buy food for their house so he mooches off of them. The only thing he has to pay for is his truck insurance, gasoline and his cell phone bill. So ALL his money is being BANKED!!! Mind you he works at FEDEX so he is making big time MOOOLAH!!!! Has enough money saved so he goes buys himself a house to be built. Buys a pool table for the house. nice leather sectional couch, a bar. He then buys a new Chevy Truck of his dreams....then suckers me back to him. And me who has loved him since High School gets suckered back so we date. Then he gets into a big argument with my daughter at a New Years Eve party he has at his house...which was about some friends she had over. Which he said she could have a few friends over but now he is intoxicated and is just being an ASS! So I get all pissed with him about that. I ignore him rest of the night. I get up next day and clean the house spotless. Loser gets up around noonish to fix himself something to eat and sit down in front of tv to watch football games. Says NOT ONE word on how the house looks at all. So I pack up ALL my stuff and left. The end of our relationship EVER!!! He has tried numerous times and still till this day to get back with me even tho now I am engaged to an AWESOME guy and we have a beautiful 4yr old daughter together that was planned not an accident.

  10. I have to say the last loser was by and far the worst or best as the case may be. Love this WA and since I seldom wear the stuff, I sure hate the days when I do and shouldn't have.
