November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and I am doing it again. Anyone else?

This thread is for members who are doing it to cheer each other own and encourage each other.

I have no idea what I am going to write!!!

Kristina (Spaz_Girl) IS IT REALLY???

I've been meaning to start mine for (no scolding me you guys) years! Wow. I resolve to write this month!

PLEASE send me your happy thoughts and encouragement (and gentle prodding)! I will do the same for all of you!

You guys can do this. When I did it for the first time in 2009 it was fun. I didn't find my story, but I have reached my NaNoWriMo word count.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
You can do it, Kristina!


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
Well, I started. I have a story going. We'll see where we're headed with this.

Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 181 comments I decided not to do it this year. I have too many unfinished manuscripts now. But I'll use the enthusiasm generated by others to spur me on to finish 1 thing. I'm even going to a Nanowrimo write-in at a local library. A friend sponsers it each year for the last 4 years.

Good luck to anyone working on those 50K!

You ladies can do this!

Thanks, Andrea.

I've been really busy with other stuff so far, but I am going to get into gear and do more writing!


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
Good luck to you on your writing endeavors, Andrea!

Thank you Lady Danielle aka The Book Huntress!

Kristina (Spaz_Girl) So far, I've been trying to meet a work deadline and falling into bed each night in exhaustion. Guess what though, that deadline is tomorrow morning, so after that... LOOK OUT!


message 16: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 181 comments Come on, ladies! You can do this. Nope you have all voted today or will shortly. Then write a few pages!

My write in was a blast on Sunday. It really helped me kick-start this story that's been lying dormant since last year. I even worked on it Monday during breaks while on sub duty at a local high school. Now, I've spent way too much time on the internet today, but I did manage a little more outlining.

Good luck to everyone. Danielle, Kristina, how's it going? Anyone else got their groove on?


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
Andrea, it's sort of like pulling teeth, but it's coming. I think I know what I want to do now and have some ideas to work with.

I'm glad your write-in was productive.

Oh! =(
Hope you feel better!
I wound up with 3 sick kids myself. I'm sure I'll get it any day now. There is only so much mess you can clean up before it starts breaking down your own immunity. >_<

Get well soon S.J.

Ladies continue to write. I will be doing some writing this month as well. I still don't have the internet, but that will not stop me from writing. I'll post to my story, when I get the internet again.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
Feel better soon, SJ.

Looking forward to more of your story, Arch.

I'm behind on my novel count, but I am not giving up (shakes fist in victory)!

Thanks, Arch.

Glad you're feeling better, SJ.


message 26: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Jackson (paperbackdiva) | 181 comments S.J. and Arch, keep it up. They tell me don't worry about the days you missed, just pick it up and keep on. Well, I missed several days too. I did a little this morning and plan to keep on.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
A little at a time. I just need to stop worrying about it being crappy. That's my huge hindrance.


message 28: by Arch (new)

Arch  | 4083 comments Mod
Thanks Andrea.

Danielle just write. Don't worry about how the story sounds. It's not crap.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
I am really bad at that, but I'll try, Arch. Thanks for the encouragement.

Ladies tomorrow is Thanksgiving, enjoy that day with family and friends if they are in your company. Don't worry about writing too much. Write a little. You all can do this!


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 9526 comments Mod
Thanks for all the support, Arch and everyone else. I was able to finish. Hallelujah!
