  1. So who's going to do NNWM this year? I've done it for the last two years but I'm debating if I should do it this year. My first year's novel I ended up not going any further with because it became unfeasible. I really liked what I wrote last year and I feel like I ought to develop it. However there IS something addictive about NNWM.
  2. I just hit the 5k mark on my novel for this year! I have never won before, but I'm doing well so far, so hopefully this year will be the first.

    Of course, when I say "doing well", I mean I'm keeping up with my word count goals each day. The quality of those words is another matter entirely...
  3. I have to much to do this month for me to do NNWM and feel good about it. I hate making the decision but that's life sometimes. I am going to keep working on the novel I started last year because I think it has potential and perhaps for once I need to focus on finishing a novel totally in my own time.

  4. I know how that goes. I was looking back on my record of participations and it turns out I reliably try it every two years. I guess life just happens to me biannually.

    I'm sure I'm just like everyone else on this forum when I mention I've been trying to write novels since I was a kid. I've never finished one, though, because I always end up wanting to move on to another idea. NaNo might just be what it takes for me to achieve that big "The End". I hope so.

    Good luck with your novel, Lunar!

  6. Thank you Lyre! :) I am also working on an ebook (non-fiction) that has a high chance of being done. :)

    I was a major participant in a ceremony in November that I had to study a lot for, so I couldn't do much in NaNo until last Friday. I'm doing NaNo, but unofficially, this year.

  8. Tried to do it last year, got about 100 pages in and wound up spending the majority of November in the hospital. Oh well...

    I've tried it once or twice but ran out of time. Much sadness

    i never have the time for it in November because my semester is ending.
    If it was over the summer, I'd be more available and willing to even try.

    I think Phineas makes a good point in that it's such an awkward time of year for students! Holidays are coming up, semesters are winding down. And flu season, anyone? I feel like I'm always sick or busy when NaNo rolls around. A friend tried to rope me into it back in 2015 and I was so excited, but around October 29th the work crept in and I blew it.

    I'm be honest. I have no idea what that is.

    I never really got into it. But I did do a graphics version sort of. Do artwork for people doing NaNo :)

    I have attempted to do something for NaNo month, but I never really get into it. I know a few people that have been rewarded for NaNo month.

    I tried it one year, ODed on coffee, my computer was infected with a virus, but I passed 24,000 words.
    I have sworn, because of the hell I experienced, that I would never do it again.

    Planning on doing it again this year. The community challenges and participation goes a long way.
