So, National Novel Writing Month started today. Anyone here who competes. Sadly I had to decline this year. I'm in the middle of moving and that takes too much of my time to concentrate on writing a 50,000 word story. But I still find it a shame :(

National? Which nation? And you're supposed to write a novel in a month? :huh:

AN AMERICAN NATION!!!! (kudos to anyone who gets the reference)

It doesn't have to be a full on novel, it could be a really bad draft, as long as you hit the word quota. I heard about this but given I have to write an essay every weekend on top of massive amounts of reading and that's all before the short stories I have to write for my other classes, and I think it's safe to say I don't have the time to try it this month.

I encourage others to try it out if they have the time though. You probably won't create the next best selling novel, but if you get a decent draft that you can go back and edit occasionally it's definitely worth it.

I heard about this's too.

Too bad neither of you could enter!! I considered it for like a minute but I have never written anything that long and I swamped with work. One of my professors was trying to convince me too but didn't happen. Oh well. Always next year ay?

Yeah a better name would be InNoWriMo but that does not sound as catchy I guess :P

Considering it, but my muse seems to be really flighty and I'm not sure I would reach the quota. I always forget about it until someone brings it up./: I should have started brainstorming, and bringing ideas together months ago, but I'ma failure. xD
I've never done it before, but I know a lot of people who have and I don't think I have the patience it takes to do that. ><
