It's That NaNoWriMo Time of Year Again!

  • Oct. 24th, 2007 at 11:47 AM
Don't fuck with the Jesus
Okay, I'm a sick fuck, but I'm going to give the ol' NaNoWriMo thing again this year. Maybe this time it will stick!

Anyone want to come and join me, come scope me out over there!

I signed up again, too.

We are gluttons for punishment.

I miss you, by the way.

Thought you should know.

Done! So, how do you approach this NaNo thing? Are you a pre-planner and outliner, or do you just simply start writing on November 1st and see where it takes you? I'm curious about how other people work!

Well, I've been pre-planning something, and figured that hey! November is as good a time to actually start as any.

But planning only goes so far with me, and then it just turns into a "write until you find your way out of the dark" sort of thing.

Planning never really gets me very far in life. Eventually, I have to make things up as I go along.

That's me. I try to plan, but I have this bad memory thing and if I don't write my plans down I lose them... and lord knows I'm too lazy to write these things down as I think of them. I don't carry a notepad around with me or a voice recorder, so all my plans last only until I forget them. I've lost so many amazing ideas I've lost count! ;)

I once had the cure to cancer all figured out, but unfortunately didn't write it down. No worries, however, as I later devised the plans for a working time machine, so I could go back in time to when I had first come up with the cancer cure, and get the info from my past self before I (he) forgot it. But of course I didn't draw out the schematics for the time machine, and... well, you get the idea.

I still haven't finished mine from last year.

Of course, I've been working on the same book for about oh, 3-4-5ish years so it's about time I got off my ass and finished it...

I hear ya.

Time is the enemy. Well, the lack of it.

Oh, that's such a pitiful excuse, isn't it?

Heeey! I'm a sick fuck, too!

And I'd add you as a writing buddy, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

HOWEVER, if you want to add me, and administer some authorly flogging as necessary, my NaNo name is MagpieFaerie.

Well, it took me sending you a message over on the NaNo site to get your name up and clickable, but hey! Consider yourself added :)

Go, us!
