NaNoWriMo!

Hey, just a quick shout out -- any other suckers here indulging in the NaNo this year? I am, and I am already feeling the panic settling deep within my bones. emot-aaa


It takes forty-seven New Zealanders eight months to make just one batch of 42 Below Vodka. ...luckily, that leaves one of us free to be Prime Minister.

Re: NaNoWriMo!

I'm not sure what the exact acronym is but its this..well not contest...but effort I suppose is a good word, for a community of people to form and help each other write a novel in a month. They basically give each other advice and encouagment and its basically a drive to get people writing.

I'd join but you can't use something you were already working on to do it with and I don't have enought in me to write two stories since I'm already working on one. emot-gonk Lovely idea though, I like to do it one day.

Re: NaNoWriMo!

I CONSTANTLY JOIN ON THIS BANDWAGON AND IT NEVER FINISHES OMG.

So, I will join again this month and furiously pump out three pages, sob, rewrite, realign the plot, add more characters, erase, rewrite, despair, procrastinate, and resolve that NEXT NaNo it will be different.

Re: NaNoWriMo!

I did it last year. I finished about 20,000 words and then ran out of steam. Plus, work ate my life.

So I suppose I will do it again this year, with much the same result, yet it doesn't stop me from trying! bwahaha emot-gonk

Re: NaNoWriMo!

I need a magic gnome that kicks me in the butt until I start writing. emot-frown

A couple years ago I almost entered with the thought of writing a smutty romance novel, which would be hilarious for me to do without a) having ever read one or b) had any of the experience needed to write one.

Oh god. I have yet to come across a well-written smutty romance novel. I stopped looking soon after I started. *eyebleed*

Re: NaNoWriMo!

I think I'll be participating... I'm planning to write an Gord and Benson-esque bondage smut novel. Since that's where my mind's been lately. Maybe that'll get it out of my system. I may even discuss it as I work on it over on IFD, if things go well.

Re: NaNoWriMo!

I did it for the first time last year, and met the 50k with about 2 weeks to go in the month.  However, I was also working in a temporary secretarial position that had NO WORK TO DO (most boring job ever), so I spent 5 or 6 hours of my workday writing.  That makes getting through 50k a snap, and I didn't even work on it at all during the evenings or weekends.  Unfortunately, I still haven't finished the story I was working on (maybe 1/10 of the way complete...I like long stuff!).  I'm sort of considering signing up this year and trying to finish last year's story, but I'm a grad student now, and I have a couple of big projects I'll be working on during that time...

It's pretty fun, but really I think it's only something I want to do once.  I know that with more responsibilities on me, I won't even consider working on my NaNo anyway.

Bondage smut is always welcome in IFD. As for participating in this, my writing is only slightly better than Stephen Hawking's tangoing, so this I will sit out in showing of my love for those who might have read my work. Everyone's certainly free to post their efforts here though! It sounds like a great way to kick you lazy writers in the ass. emot-smile

50,000 words, one month? Sounds like machoism.

Oh, and Nessie, congratulations!
