I want to but I don't know if I will this year. I have nothing planned out. Although that might be the way to go. Lol

I was originally going to, but I failed to plan out my idea well enough. Maybe next year.

@Keke do iiiiit, you never know it could be the best thing you've written? Sometimes not planning helps I think. The worst thing that happens is you don't finish this year :P
@Debb lmao I'm sorry :oops:
@Shix aww, maybe you could try with what you have? I've been there a time or two ):

I always try to participate in an alternative which is working on comics, by doing like each stage of a page a day, or like 30 pencilled pages. I personally try to sketch one day colour the next, text the next, so by the end of the month I'll have 10 pages of comic. Not quite a 50K word novel but still a lot of hard work :D

Ah that's pretty cool. I'm not a comic making person really, and I don't draw traditionally very often anymore but it's always interesting to see other alternatives out there :)

Eh, I don't really feel comfortable starting with what I have.

I'll probably just try to juggle projects until next year.

And we're off! It's Novemeber 1st! And I've almost met the goal for today (not done just yet). \o/ Hopefully I can keep that up and at the very least meet the daily goal. Maybe I'll get somewhere this year. XD

I'm doing it again. Name's Remmirath over there if anybody'd like to add me or what. I'm working on a complete re-write of the same thing I was doing last year, which is the first book in a planned trilogy that I've been kicking around in my head for many years. This is the second full draft, but there have been many starts and stops over the years.

I'm also trying to get the script for my webcomic project done in the meantime, so that should be interesting. Hopefully I'll be able to work on both consistently throughout the month, but we'll see!

Yay!! I reached the word count minimum for today, but I hope I can still get more done tonight maybe <3 I hope I keep up too. And that sounds fun Remmi! I always forget your name is different on here xD

Oh and that is a good point if anyone wants to add me my NaNo username is Smitefire.

@Keke congrats! ♥ I'm really excited to be writing, I'm hoping to hit 10k in the next day or so while I still have a lot of steam. I know halfway through the month I get stressed out and don't want to work on it anymore... or at least that happened last year. :oops:

I've done it a lot of years in the past, and it was always a good time, but the past too many years have been awful times for me mental health-wise, and one of the things that's hardest for me to get back is the love I used to have for writing, and how easy it is.

So I'm not doing it officially, but I am taking this month to make sure that I write something fun every day, just for myself. I've got a few things I'm working on, but this is about being happy, not about being productive.

@Krahka I know that feeling. The past two years I couldn't finish because mental health issues made it really hard to keep going some days, for anything. Im glad you're doing something for you and not putting a bunch of unneeded pressure on yourself <3 I hope one day you can get back into writing and love it again! It never hurts to take breaks and come back to it when it's enjoyable and not stressful.

I'm totally a "write whenever I get inspiration" type, meaning, I rarely finish anything & hate it when I do, and it takes me WAY longer than 30 days to finish. Hahaha.

Usually so am I ;) I just use NaNo as a good kick in the pants to try and work on looooong procrastinated drafts and ideas into something new and comprehensible! We'll see if I actually finish this year. I'm determined to stay ahead and make it haha

Double post, no shame!
I hit 10k today :D I'm officially 3-ish days ahead, so lots of wiggle room at the moment if things start getting difficult.

Woo good job, Gwen! I'm thinking I am going to try and get ahead on Thursday since I have the day off and Dylan's at work most of the day. He's been encouraging me to get my daily goal in which has helped me along. :)

I DID NOT REALIZE THERE WAS A TOPIC ABOUT NANO (Mostly because my free time has been nanoing and doing lurky things on here).

I'm on goal atm. Some days I'm over by a 1000 or so and some days I'm lucky I squeaked out 500 words. >< But! I'm going. :)

There was one like two years ago but I decided to make this one instead of necro'ing xD there just had to be one! And yeah I'm ahead by a few days but I knew I'd get screwed with my weekend classes/ plans and my birthday this month so I've been trying to stay ahead for the inevitable getting nothing done days :lol:

We're all doing good though!
