* MemeticMutation: Persimmons and "perma-persimmons" originate from a misspelling of "permissions", meaning to allow independent NaNoers to publish select Nanoisms in print.

** Not to mention the "plot ninjas" and "plot kittens" that everyone decided they liked better than plot bunnies.

* {{Padding}} - As mentioned above, there are many, ''many'' ways to inflate one's wordcount without necessarily contributing to one's plot development. Such as:
** Removing contractions ('do not' vs 'don't').
** Giving characters multi-word names or fanficul titles and insisting on a FullNameBasis (or simply repeating them often).
** Having a character sing along to a song on a radio, or recite lines from a play/novel/movie.
** Introduce a new character and have them [[RockyRollCall exchange names with everybody]]. The larger the group, the better.
** Giving characters particular {{Verbal Tic}}s, like stuttering, to up your wordcount. (paraphrased from ''No Plot? No Problem!'' "Give your character a stutter! Not only will it allow you to double all their dialogue, but everyone else in the story can spend pages wondering where the stutter came from!")
** "Never delete anything. If you canít stand to look at it, just change the font to white and keep going." (from a 2011 pep talk by Erin Morgenstern)

* {{Hatedom}} - Head-scratchingly, 2010 saw a number of anti-nanoites come out of the woodwork, particularly a blogger for Salon magazine that stirred up a whole lot of wank with her column, which openly insulted [=NaNoers=] for spending their month writing books instead of reading them. Most of their arguments are based in CompletelyMissingThePoint and StopHavingFunGuys
** This did, however, lead to LemonySnicket writing an excellent, highly inspiring pep talk that references the Salon article repeatedly.
