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).
