Hey guys, I know its early but I have just been reminded about it.

NaNoWriMo!

I'm sure everyone is in for it this year. Now I've graduated I've not got an excuse, and nor do I want one. I'm so psyched for it already I could eat my underpants.

Who's with me?

QUOTE (CommieBastard)
National Novel Writing Month, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it, is an event in November where the participants try to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in a month, beginning midnight November 1st and ending midnight December 1st. Its main purpose as I see it is to combat that tendency of people to want to write a novel "one day", and then endlessly put off that day because "there's never enough time". NaNoWriMo forces you to put the words down on paper, which is the most important thing. It's also a great deal of fun.

I think I'm going to do it (really this time >_>) this year. I had an awesome idea for a story a few weeks ago and have started character mapping. ..Now I just need to find a way to balance homework, clubs, life, and NaNoWriMo, and I should be able to do this. Let's rock.

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss

Wow.

You know, I haven't missed a year since I began doing this.
I also haven't come out of it with anything I'm even remotely proud of.

So it's to be determined...I think I'm going to give it a good try, but if it becomes too much doing that between school and work and whatnot...sigh.
Yeah. I really want to. I just don't know how likely it is for me to actually be able to.

I have the time.
I have the desire.

As long as I have the willpower to avoid distractions (something which is constantly keeping me from semi-important tasks), I shall give it a go this year!

Ditto. biggrin.gif

I'm in, as always. I have actually been writing a lot over the past few months. I don't completely hate some of it, so I guess that's progress. We'll see how long that lasts once I start NaNoWriMo. unsure.gif

Oh gosh...I really want to. I really, really want to. I may participate for the sake of writing without really setting out to accomplish the 50,000 word goal, because between work and school and actually trying to have a social life...there's just no way.

I don't really know, but I found this place where you can download it for free, and I'm a sucker for a good deal.

Ack! Why does it have to be in November? How can I start writing when I am still a little bit drunk from last night's Halloween party? Actually, wait. I might be able to write more this way. It just won't be any good. New plan for this year's NaNoWriMo: constant supply of vodka.

With two Halloween parties and now work, I've barely started. I can admit that here, this is a safe place.

Upon advice from the man Mata, I've dropped by to report my official participation in this year's NaNoWriMo. If you want a writing buddy, you'll find me listed under CrawtonLeek.

Let's get writing, peeps!

Couldn't start yesterday what with the sleeping and throwing up.. Home today, feeling better, so going to try to maybe get 5k - 10k out of the way.

This is me.

Urrrgh, I only have 675 words so far. In order to stay on track, I should be at 5k by tomorrow. AND I am going away this Saturday and Sunday to visit snoo, so I won't be writing then. I sense a marathon writing session in my near future. wacko.gif

Oh, this is me, by the way.

Oh yeah, I was supposed to start tomorrow... and tonight doesn't look good.

Is it really awful that this has only just begun, and I've already procrastinated?

Umm.. ..No... ...not at all... ...right...? (I don't just say this because I only have like 800 words, y'know. >_>)

I had a great idea for this last year, except I had it far too late to do anything with it. And now I can't remember what it was. Damn, damn and thrice damn!

Aww, you can do it, Hobbes! For now, try to focus less on catching up and more on just getting anything down. Even if it's just 100 words.

I managed to catch up today. I'm now at 5506 words. Woo! Tomorrow I'm going to try to get ahead in preparation for going away this weekend.

...So NaNoWriMo isn't going to happen this year.. I have a ten page (minimum) single spaced annotated bibliography on exciting Islam due Nov. 20th. Also have a very lame French project due Dec. 1st. I didn't get very far with my story, so I'm not that bummed out about it, but I'd rather be writing than doing these project. ...sad.gif

You should just incorporate the essays into your novel. A detailed knowledge of religion and the french language is surely necessary to defeat the villain(s)!
