NaNoWriMo 2011
 
Who's doing it this year?

This will be my 6th attempt at NaNo, and hopefully I'll actually succeed this time! My biggest problem in past years has been that I'm always drunk on Halloween night, so I'm always behind by the time midnight on November 1st rolls around.

This year, however, I am going to kick its ass. I've been anticipating it since September. I already have my story idea, and I will have lots of time to write. I spent most of my week at work bored out of my mind (I usually have about 5 hours of real work to do in a given 40-hour week).

I'm right there with you buddy! I have a 4000 word outline O_O-- all of it is just description for what I want to write. This is my second year-- last year I wasn't even close. I'm pretty committed; I'm giving up alcohol (of all forms) until all 50,000 words are down.

If there's more interest here, we should make this our support thread!

Works for me!

A 4000-word outline, huh? That's nearly 10% of your story right there!

Did it and won it last year, but I'm taking a break this year. That said, good luck to those who do!

Yeah but it's mostly just me jabbering to myself about what I want to do and problems to work out :). None of it (per the rules) can actually used for the 50k story itself.

I did JulNoWriMo because November is just such a horrible time for me. Always too busy.

Good luck to those of you doing this, though!

I keep meaning to, but keep forgetting all about it. Even when I used a NaNoWriMo avatar!

which is just the heights of Sad

Thanks. I didn't actually care enough to Google it.

^googling it would have taken less time than posting "I have no clue what this thread is about" and following it up with your second post.

This is a discussion board. I'm just trying to keep the conversation flowing.

Be nice, people.

NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month.

It happens every November. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month's time.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011
 
So it's not a discussion board then? What have I been doing here all these years?

Anyway, now that I know what it is, good luck to all who are participating. It is definitely not something I would attempt.
