Oh, this is sweet.

And I'm pumped. So Halloween will be planned perfectly so as not to mes something up and be inable to begin directly at 12.

Ahh.. I'm considering doing this this year.. I've never done it before so it should be interesting to say the least, I doubt I'll make 50 000 words before the deadline but I'm going to try.

It's a complete rush, even for those who don't win. I have realized that I also lost because I spent a ton of time ogling the site.

Yes. I don't procrastinate, I just 'get used to the water'. Meaning I procrastinate but not really.

Don't tell anyone.

I.. I'm weird about it when I write a narrative (most of the time I do poetry). I sort of.. I procrastinate but plan it out in my head as well.. so really when I come to researching and outlining everything I've got a fair bit of the work done in my head already.

I just don't think I can get to 50k words in a month, even though I probably speak more than that in a week. But I won't tell anyone about that procrastination thing if you don't.

I would participate, but it's during school, is it not? I couldn't write a ~3000-4000 word short story in a month during school. I have practically zero free time.

I just realized that "during school" is relative. It's November, right?

Yep. November. Thirty days. 50,000 words. Intense. However, there's also the Young Writers' Program wherein you can set your own word count.

Hoping to manage to do this this time... Although college applications and the insane amount of schoolwork I've got may shoot me down.

Arg. This should be interesting...

Not long until NaNoWriMo kicks off now! Good luck to all our members and Mod team members that will be participating, feel free to keep us all updated of your progress and we'll cheer you all on! One word of caution though.. please do not post detailed summaries of your work or links to your piece!

Thanks Elena!

Unfortunately, I don't get it flamelssecret/confused0058.gif . Is it a contest or something? And how does one enter? Also, what do they do with the work we send in?

Oh, it's not a contest, really. You don't send the work anywhere. It's more like... hmm. A bunch of people collectively challenging themselves to write a novel in a month.

(That said, I've never done it. So if I'm entirely off-base, please correct me. ^^)

You have a profile/account on their site and upon reaching 50,000 words on your novel (or whatever goal you choose should you do the Young Writers' Program), you paste your entire document in a field that validates your word count and you 'win.' It's based entirely on honor, though, because they don't read anything you send in.

Ohhh it makes a lot more sense now. Thanks, but I don't think I can be doing it this time around. I've got... other... projects to work on. But thanks for the answers!

Same here. Outline written as of last night, and spending a good chuck of tonight writing. Goal is 2500 words by midnight tonight... hopefully.

Good Luck Silver, and to anyone else on the Forum (Hey - anyone else actually doing this?)

Oh, and the NaNo site is lethally slow today... trying to find my way around the Forums there, but failing epically.

Feel free to PM if anyone's interesting in Buddy Listing over at NaNo.
