I just came to check and usually this tab is all filled up with people intending to do NaNo. But I didn't find one so I decided to make it myself!

A thread like this usually helps me through, big time. So if you need NaNo encouragement this year, pop into this tab. I'll be checking it every day.

Please don't leave me here waving the NaNo flag alone, lol!

I started the third book of my series on Friday but I'm still finishing the first draft of book 2 and decided I just wasn't ready yet. I'm starting again today with a novelisation of the musical I'm going to have to write for my internship soon!

I finished last year (it was book 2 I wrote actually) but at least 50% of it was unusable in the end. I've attempted on two previous occasions and not finished.

I'm hopeful about completing it again this year, now that I've done it once already!

Does it have to be a fiction book? I was going to write either an erotic novel or one about my 2 best friends who died last year.

I want to, but November is always a really busy month for me anyway, and I have a lot of extra family issues going on this year. :( Good luck to those of you who are! You can do it!

You can be a "rebel" and do that. It's supposed to be fiction, but it doesn't really matter.

Yes, as far as I'm aware you can write about whatever subject you want. I completed NaNoWriMo a few times and hope to do it again this year even though I'm starting late. It seems to be a tradition for me to start late every year. I'm so scatterbrained, I usually don't remember until a couple of days before and then I forget again until day 2 or 3. Can't quite figure out what's wrong with me on that account.

Yes! I'm currently a little behind, but I will catch up tomorrow. This is my 6th year, and hopefully 6th win! :)

Well now I FINALLY know where I'm going with this thing. I thought I was doomed to write 30 days worth of pure nonsense. Now it'll only be part nonsense, LOL!

How is everyone doing? How are your word counts going? As of tomorrow we have one week left!

I'm trying. I'm at 33,000-ish now. I'm trying to get 5k written before I go to sleep but my brain is fried. I have 16,817 more to write to make it to 50k. There is a write in tomorrow night that goes until midnight its about 4 hours long, so I know I will probably write 4 or 5k there. But I don't work tomorrow, so I have all day to write, if I get the chance too.

So how did everyone wind up doing?

I got my word count on time. For once I'm actually now trying to finish the book instead of leaving it in the hard drive paused partway through the story where I made the word count.
