The Write Stuff...

It's that time of year again. The NanoWrimo thing. Write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Um, ok...

I've signed up this year, and you can view my page here in Flash, or here in non-Flash.

I know going in I won't make 50 grand word count. But I'd be really, really happy to kick out a 20-25,000 jump on a story. Even that seems ludicrous with other stuff going on, but oh well, why not.

Not sure yet what story I'm going to do. And with 2 days left, that doesn't bode well :) It's not for a lack of story ideas, but more a lack of a linear plot to one...we'll see what happens...

Whoohoo! You've taken the plunge. Congrats!

I wonder what will be available to view on your Nanowrimo page. I'll keep checking anyway.

From what I've read, this is a cyclical experience. People who try it one year, try again the next, and still have a blast. I also hear the Nanowrimo community is very helpful for encouragement and ideas if you get stuck.

I haven't tried it yet, but I wish you all the best this month, and hope you have a great time, no matter how many words you get typed into the computer. :-)

I know it's been ages since I've posted. How are things? I'm excited about NaNoWriMo, although I doubt I'll make it 50,000 with the month that's ahead -- but, I figure, anything I end up with is more than I have now! I am the WORST procrastinator when it comes to writing. Good luck with your story!

One more thing, I hope you don't mind, I added you as a "Buddy" on NaNoWriMo. My user name is "withjoy" if you want to add me. It's so much easier if I feel like I'm doing this in a community, you know?

LRU: thanks - you want to join up too? :)

Jill Pole: Thanks for the comments. Things are ok. NanoWrimo will be a challenge, no doubt, but should be a fun one. I'll add your name to the Buddy list, and look forward to reading your writings. Good luck!

It would be fun, but I'm afraid it would take too much time away from things I should be doing. :-)
