haha i think you mean 30000 words.


message 6: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments 300000 is a LOT in one month. I'd pass out exhausted just trying.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah....... so anyway back to the subject.... although i think the only people doing it are roni, brigid, and sella.......


message 8: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie | 2838 comments I am! Though most people don't know (or care) as I'm not as popular as them.

And Ephona's doing it, and Seth, and ... tons of people are!

yeah, everyone is doing it this year! But we mostly talk about it in the "NaNoWriMo 2008" group. And some of you guys aren't even in that group!

well ... this is my third year. and i don't have a lot of good advice, because i failed miserably last year -- i don't think i even made it to 10K words. -wince- XD and the year before that, i did slightly better, but i was far away from reaching the goal ...

but i'll try. okay. firstly, make some kind of schedule. figure out exactly how many words to write a day, so you can keep yourself on track. also -- i speak from experience -- DON'T WING IT! come up w/some sort of outline; i know it's a pain, but it helps. this is the first year i'm using an outline, and i think it will really help me, cuz i actually know almost everything that's gonna happen in my story.

soooo i guess that's all the advice i have. heehee. :)


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

OMG thanks SO much brigid! i already set up a really rough outline.. ill add more and more on to it everyday until the 1st! *draws in breath* im so nervous! and not ready! but hopefully it will be good! it sounds really fun! i cant wait until i can do the REAL NaNoWriMo, but for now i think its best to stick to the YWP part...

Again THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

I think we all did, but at the same time we GREW! We forced ourselves to become prolific.


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm so glad I actually did it. Unfortunately, my story is quite a bit like Maximum Ride, and a lot like X-Men, even though I hadn't ever seen it until after I finished.
grrr.

message 30: by Veronica, What the neck!? (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) | 2889 comments Mod
I dunno. Not right now. I have at least 15 books to read.

But then again, don't I always?
