Ninjadillo is the official mascot of Nanorevismo! He is the mascot with really thick skin. Writers need thick skins to get critiques! Wrters need thick skin to share their work. And writers need Ninjadillo's ninja skills to kill their darlings.
All of this month is serious work! Writers are revising! Writers need NINJADILLO!
This isn't November! This. Is.
Ninjadillo is fierce! Ninjadillo is tough! And Ninjadillo is here for your adverbs!
Adverbs can run-on. Adverbs can hide behind comma splices. And adverbs can bribe their way into dialogue tags. But he WILL find you! And all you adverbs will be DELETED! Backspace, backspace BACKSPACE!
AAAAAAAH Ninjadillo! Heeyah!
"He held me tightly. He looked at me passionately. He touched me softly."
Ninjadillo says NO ADVERBS! POW! POW! POW!
Now writer says...
"He gripped my hands. He stared into my eyes. He caressed my skin."
Ninjadillo says YEEEEEE!!!
Watch Ninjadillo jump!
Watch Ninjadillo leap!
Watch Ninjadillo make the same pose he has made this whole post.
Ninjadillo says he learned how to pose from Zoolander.
But do not laugh at Ninjadillo! And do not hide! And if you are an adverb or an uneccesary plot line or a continuity error, or a stupid cliche, be afraid, be very afraid. Because Ninjadillo is HERE!
