I want to try to do it this year for real (before, work just made it impossible and might still)- but my big problem is, I don't seem to have a plot.  I'm better at short stories.   Sigh.  I have a few days to come up with something.

Yep, spent quite a bit of time there tonight! :)  I might be able to incorporate one of those into another short story I have floating around in my head and see how they mesh.  Still going to look a bit more.

I joined last week or so after seeing this thread (and having heard of NaNoWriMo in the past but never having participated).  Now with BT being much more intense than I imagined, I don't know if I'm going to be able to actually do it.  I am disappointed, I won't lie, but I think I may still try despite how hard it will be.  Maybe BT will get better once I get into the swing of things; this is only the 3rd day after all.

I'm sorry, I've been so inundated with acronyms over the last three days I forget people aren't thinking the same way I am.  It is Basic Training (not military in this instance).

I also forgot to mention that my novel is medieval fantasy-esque.

May I say Mental Magpie: Good luck in Basic Training!

And that sounds like an awesome story. I am also Nikko-chan over at NaNo, if you would like to add me on your buddylist, you know, for an occasional kick in the pants with regards to writing ;)

Thank you!  It's really easy so far, and I'm loving it!

I shall!  I need a good swift kick from time to time.

I'll be back to give it a go this year again, and I've got a few ideas ready I just need to pick one.

Good luck everyone!

I had a crack at it in 2010 and 2011. This is the first year I've properly signed up though. My username there is Heartstart.

I am going to try to do it this year.  It will be hard because I have gone back to school, and as an English major, I am already writing all the time anyway.  I am writing a short story about the Choctaw Trail of Tears for my creative writing class, and am thinking about developing that into a novel.

I am katiescarlett on there, also, if anyone wants to friend me there.   :)

I just signed up for this year. I have a much better plot bunny bouncing around my head this year. Or there is a Doctor Who fanfic that is rattling around up there also.
  I'm 8cowwife over there also. I'm looking forward to getting one of these "down on paper".

I tried to find you but it said you didn't exist   :(


I finally got around to adding everyone on here; I'm Mental Magpie there as well.

I'm going to give it another shot this year. I had one idea all planned out, but now I've got another bunny hopping around in my head and I'm not sure which one to pick.

My username is Jai over there, and I'd love some more buddies.
