years later, and although it was among the earliest, _Teens Wander Around a House_ by @darius still stands out as one of the best books to come out of NaNoGenMo [pdf link] http://tinysubversions.com/nanogenmo/novel-2.pdf 'Darby walked into the master bedroom and saw Philomena.

better of it. "I was a butterfly flying in a field of yellow flowers. I stopped on one flower and it
turned into a boat taking me down the Nile."'

normal emojis = described ("party popper", "blowing kisses")
custom emojis = their defining words are read (e.g. as "mastodon")
"in this house" meme: ~5 seconds (all the punctuation ignored)
some kaomoji e.g. (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ was read as "table flip" (!)
N.B. it being skipped is not a problem as long as it's "decorative" for yr toot i.e. if you skip it, you don't lose meaning

When I was little I loved Wheel of Fortune and Vanna White so much. I always wondered what would happen if she refused to turn over the letters.
