NaNoWriMo 2016

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

NaNoWriMo 2016

Postby deHavilland » Fri Oct 28, 2016 9:26 pm

For some people, the last week of October is all about gearing up for Halloween -- but something even more important happens when the clock strikes midnight on October 31st: it's the start of National Novel Writing Month!

Anyone else on Abaisse participating this year? I had a great win streak going on since 2004, but the past couple of years I haven't hit that 50,000 word mark. This will be NaNo #12 for me and I'm planning on winning! :twisted:

I wasn't going to, but now I'm starting to swither about it. I haven't done it since I started teaching, but I'm doing a little bit better timewise this year. I had a really good idea last year (it is very VERY dark, to the point I worry about my psyche), but I've always done fanfiction before, so I'm a little scared!

Stop swithering and do it, ya big weenie. The worst that can happen is you don't reach the final word count!

So that's the first week of NaNo down and I'm sitting at a nice and comfortable 11,750. Just a little above today's word count goal. (A very little.) Pumped to hit week two and maybe see something that vaguely resembles actual plot development turn up.
