I think I got my plot worked out yesterday and today.  Can't wait for tomorrow!

I won't get to write tomorrow (traveling) so I cheated a bit and started writing today.

Sssshhhh...don't tell anyone! I promise I won't upload it 'til the weekend!

Happy first day of NaNo everyone!  ;D

I stayed up past midnight last night to start writing... I've probably written a load of rubbish, but at least I've managed to write something, and I refuse to look at it for now. I'll just keep writing...

Yeah, me too...  :-\ I've started out well, but now I'm rather distracted. I think I need another cup of tea...

I won't be able to get any writing done until tonight.  Today is cell search day so not a lot of opportunity for writing, but I'll be thinking about things!

Good luck everyone!

I'm doing it again this year, although I forgot about it until a few days ago. I have a plot (romantic comedy) worked out, though. Of course, day 1 and I'm in training for 6.5 hours, followed by 2.5 hours of work, then a concert, so I'm not sure when I'll actually have time to write.  :(

Yup, same here! I'm hoping to get a good 3000/4000 words today. But it's only 2pm, so I figure I've got time...

I want to get a good chunk knocked out (hopefully around 10,000 words) in the next few days, but I am worried about burning myself out. It's a marathon, not a sprint!

(I am Skara_Brae over there, if anyone wants to add me!)

Ok first day.  How many words did you do?  And what is your daily target if you are aiming to do more than 50K words.

My target is about 2750-2900 per day

I'm in again this year (even though I didn't seem to find this thread till late, heh). I'm PearKiwi at the site, feel free to friend me if we aren't already.

This year, I'm just going to do a generic fantasy type novel. A princess is forced by her evil step mother to recover a long lost artifact, or die. She (along with her guard, who is working for the queen,) travel the land and other kingdoms along the way gaining a random group of ragtag adventurers who have their own reasons for joining her quest.

...I'm afraid I've spent more time working on the map of the land then working on the outline, heh. (The tutorial I'm using are at cartographersguild.com, in case anyone wants to try their hand at procrastinating. ;))

I managed to get to 5600 words on the first day, and my daily target should be around 2000 to 2500 from now on, but I am not sure I'll manage that because I'm already beginning to see the gaps in my research and a gaping plot hole... :-\
