Okay, the NaNoWWriMo 2008 official thread. I thought of putting this in the Original Writing forum, but a lot of people are writing fanfic for Nano nowadays. And what a great way to get more fanfic!  Love

Who is participating? Respond with your Nano name and link to your personal Nano page, and then I'll add it to this posting:

Participants:
Dreamers Cove (Julieann here)
katsesama

Also, this thread will be for support, advice and help.

So, have you started planning yet? Wink  Original or fanfic, or a combination of both?

You know, and idea could also be to plan several small fanfics instead of just one big one. I've seen people do themed short stories before for Nano. Smile

As of midnight tonight, the NaNoWriMo website will shut down, due to reopen on October 1st. While it's shut down, the 2007 forum will be archived so that it will start back up all empty, clean and new. No sign-ins or sign-ups will be possible in that time.

After that, we can see about adding each other to our Buddies list!

Nano relaunched their website early! Woohoo!

So now we can start getting serious. Anyone else up to the writing challenge?

Go ahead and head on over and reactivate your account or sign up as a new user and post it here.

Holy &^%#$*, Julieann, you've written 30,000 words in 6 days?  Maybe I shouldn't be your buddy -- you're going to give me an inferiority complex!

I saw Janet Sides is also doing NaNo, but I don't recognize anyone else's usernames -- is anyone else NaNoing?

I'm katsesama.

Don't ask Julieann how many words she wrote last year or you'll be really depressed  Bow

I'm not doing it because the wordcount required is simply too much for me, given that I prefer to write longhand first. But I am writing a fic during November instead. I might manage 5,000 words Smile

Katsesama duly 'buddied'! Nice to have you on board! I was beginning to think there would be hardly any of us doing it this year. I recall several participating last year. Becky Rock is doing it, too, but since they have Author Search shut down until later this weekend, I can't find her.

Should I not say I'm going for a triple Nano? Nah, probably not.  Big Grin

I'll bite.  How many words last year, Julieann?

Well, you're almost to 100,000 with a week to go -- you going to beat that record?  Wink

 The Wave
 Happy Dance
Yay, I did it! And I really didn't expect to do this well with all that kept happening in November.

Grand Total: 150,408
A Triple Nano!

But I did learn something. I think that's the highest I'll ever get. The wall reached forward and nailed me in the head.  Bang Head

Hehe Smile

Anyway, now I'm excited about bringing out the first novel and start editing. I hope everyone else who participated in Nano also had lots of fun! Hopefully a few more people will try to participate next year.  Smile

When I mentioned hitting the wall, I meant the exhaustion from trying to so many extra words. 150k is about my limit. It was fun to get that high, but a lot of work, too.

And NaNoWriMo is officially on.  I think Ill edit my signature with my progress as it goes along.....

Im just sad that more people I know are not participating.  At least there is one girl from my creative writing class whos in on it though her computer died the other day, knocking her out for the first week, at least.

sigh

YAY  NANO HAS STARTED dances

wordcount so far: 2k
