Edward Davies | 20 comments Hey guys, I've sort of last minute decided to buckle down on my current novel. It's kind of a cheat as I started on the 13th October, but I only have 6k words to date.

Edward Davies | 20 comments Cheers Kat! I've not done too bad today, but I've only really got three days of writing to go (the weekends are no good for me).

At least you started writing, we'll just have to find a way to keep motivating each other to finish what we've started :)

Ryan Good work, mate!

I was thinking the same thing, Leslie. I've had a full on month at work and haven't written as much as I wanted but I'm starting leave tomorrow and really keen to keep writing this story.

I was kind of hoping we could keep this group going as a year long nano thing and help each other out with all the bits and pieces/advice/motivation/ideas/reading in order to finish these novels and any others we decide to write on an ongoing basis...

Edward Davies | 20 comments I'm actually having a fun time writing this. I wish I'd started NaNoWriMo earlier, but I was so busy at work with everything going tits up. Each of the character's has to have a name that relates to some myth or legend so that everyone can be a suspect as the series goes on, so it was a nightmare coming up with character names, but now I've come up with Francesca Epstein, so she sounds like Frankenstein (a bit) I also discovered that Francesca was a character in The Divine Comedy so I can throw that in for good measure. Obviously this names thing all started with Helen Singer, aka, Helsing!

Caitlan (lionesserampant) I definitely want to keep this thing going all year long. Plus, there are the two sessions of Camp NaNo to look forward to!

Edward Davies | 20 comments Me too! I had a lot of fun whipping through the story. Came up with some silly character names too. :D

Edward Davies | 20 comments Thanks Al! Busy at work last few days with servers and switches going screwy, so only got a little more done this week. :D
