    @mariposa @salome01w4g Thanks for the help anyway, ladies. 😀 I hope nano in Jan goes well for you, Hannah. 🙂 Mariposa: Haha, well Aberdeen better be really hungery…XD

    @sarah-anson Wow. Can I just say that is impressively long. XD My books confuse me when they’re 50,000 words long, so there’s no way I could make it that far. : Splitting them up makes sense. Oooh, I hope you have an awesome first year!

    Niiiice @perfectfifths! Yeah, when I did nano last year I liked to do 2,000 words a day just in case I got behind. 🙂

    @kballen *highfives another fantasy writer* I hope you win this year!

    @daughteroftheking *jumps at loud battle cry* Oooh that sounds like a fun mix of genres! *solemnly* I will bury you beside Snowmane.

    @aislinn-mollisong Happy first year! *another high five for another fantasy writer*

    @seekjustice I love all these first timers! Wooow that’s long too! But hey, 50,000 words could be halfway there…

    @jane-maree *mouth drops* 8k? Whaaaaat? *grins* Bravo.

    @jess-penrose Yes! Welcome to the party! I love how many people are showing up.

    @ck4always Have you ever heard of NaNoWriMo before?

    Aaand since I started this thread I suppose I should answer my own questions. XD For nano I’m doing something a little different. Instead of writing 50,000 words I’m putting my current WIP, Rook, through two macro edits and a micro edit. It’s a fantasy, and I hope by the time I’m done it will be over 60,000 words.
    Oh yeah, and this is my second year.

    @perfectfifths my writing secret: close all internet things other than my music playlist and my timer, and write in intensive sprints against the timer. And just keep doing that for half the day. 😛

    I hit my goal of 15k! I’m hoping to reach 20k by the end of today. 😀

    Um.. Hi
    This is my first year doing NaNo and I’m hoping to get 50,000 words by the end of the month. I’m planning on doing a trilogy with this, it is a fantasyish plot line, the name is The Day the Dragons Disappeared but that might change.

    AYE, I am attempting NaNo once more. This is the first year that I have signed up on the official website, so that’s exciting. Hopefully with that added impetus, I’ll actually have more success than in past years XP

    I haven’t ‘titled’ my novel yet, but it’s a mystery set just a few years/decades in the future, so nothing too dramatic. I had to change a bunch of plot ideas from when I first came up with it, but I am quite confident with it now 🙂

    @jess-penrose I find loopholes… National Backspace Ban Day. Where everyone selects and replaces instead of using backspace. *sigh*

    Oh yeah, and I am writing a fantasy called Chosen by fire and I am aiming to get 60k, and hopefully should be on 15k by the end of the day. (I’m on 7 now, so, yeah.)
