NaNoWriMo 2010

    I think I ruined myself with last year. Got the flu in the middle, did not feel well enough to write for about a week and then had to pull out at least 25k in the last week. So I’ve been slacking this year (only a little over 18k thus far), but when I do sit down to write I get out 4k-7k easy. If I gave myself more time, I could be caught up today.

    -pokes all other NaNoJunkies- Write, I say, write! -cracks whip- And take it like the little girl you are!

    it’s the 10th and I’ve got less than 2,000 words. With the move and worrying about finding a job I just can ‘t get the creative juices flowing.

    I still plan on working on this story over the next several months, but there’s just no way I can catch up OR just stay on pace at the moment.

    And believe it or not I know for a fact that there is a author that did that many years ago during a weekend holiday with a bunch of friends. I dont remember who it was but I remember the story about it.

    but sometime we could do a thing where each person adds a chapter or something fun like that. 2200+ words tonight.

    If you decide not to do it, you can still be a buddy and give some feedback, right? Maybe we need a Virtual Write-in Session with some adult beverages — Ooooh, maybe people can read aloud (or have others read their work aloud). Whatever. good luck to all. I need to stop screwing aroun on the forums and WRITE!

    I suck. I don’t know why I think I can do this. I’m already giving up and I haven’t even started. November is just NOT a good month for me to do something like this. After I subtract out all the committed days I have this month for thanksgiving, my 40th birthday (and the associated activities thereof), planned travel and other events, I have something like 15 days free. Fuck it.

    And new construction. Did lights, solid surface countertops at one point, sinks, faucts, laminates, all sorts of thing.

    Then the housing market popped 2 years ago and what do you know, that’s when things started going south for us, too.

    Was bummed for a bit driving away today, but that was short lived. That part is over, now it’s on to see what’s next.

    I fully expect to have 50,000 words worth of word vomit, but damn it, there will be 50,000 words worth :-)

    Good luck to you. Hopefully you’ll get great fortune and end up with a job you will enjoy more, much as I did. And to think, it only required a little bit of binge-drinking and getting violently ill to get it!

    I have a couple of novel ideas that I’ve been kicking around for quite some time, but decided on one the other day.

    I’m signed up and what a shocker to hear this, but my username is athanas.

    I’ve got some leads here and there but nothing I’m going to actively persue at this moment.

    I’m moving from the house I’m renting into an apartment on 11/13, so first and foremost my attention is to getting this move finalized and just enjoying some time off.

    Until then, lots of writing, cleaning, and taking the dog for many, many extra walks.

    I’m sorry to hear that. Any idea what’s next (besides 50,000 words that is)?

    The company I worked for shut it’s doors last Saturday; I’ve just been helping clear out the warehouse this week. Tomorrow at around 3:30PM will end a little over 9 years with the same company.

    forgot about nanowrmo till i saw it on my yahoo homepage. i looked at it briefly then said to myself, ‘nah, don’t have the time/drive’. then all of a sudden, while watching full metal jacket, i decided DAMN IT I”M GONNA TRY IT.

    wish me luck.

    I had an idea i was going to do, and then i decided not to do it, and that I wouldn’t participate this year.

    Then yesterday, on the way home, i had an idea and i want to do it again. I actually started plotting and roughly outlining, so hopefully i have a better chance this time.

    If anyone wants to add me on nanowrimo, I’m jvizcarra

    Good luck to everyone who is participating!

    Anybody this we should do a virtual writing gathering… not as much drinking as VBF, but it would be fun.

    I’ve considered the NaNoRiMo but never got around to it. I’m working on a book though it’s more of a manual than a novel

    But why is your last day on Friday? Something amicable and planned or did something happen? And what ideas do you have for this year’s NaNoWriMo – I could use some! Wink

    Guess I need to get my sh*t together and get ready to WRITE! For those aspiring writers out there, some good news:

    “Scrivener writing application now available for Windows, just in time for NaNoWriMo http://dlvr

    I believe (tho I may be mistaken) that our dear FDO uses Scrivener and it has up to now been a Mac-only product.

    Sign up at http://www.nanowrimo.org/

    I’d love to have you Junkies as my buddies. When you log in to the site, go to My NaNoWriMo and select Writing Buddies from the left Nav bar. My user name is Beth_Ailis (see what I did there?)

    Pondy, are we going to have a Gunther-style bodice-ripper from you this year?
