    @catwing Getting sick is terribly unfun. *glowers at the computer* Yes, unfun is a word, computer!  Take that squiggly red line away. Oo, an underwater prison. Tricky. Coding, as in computer coding? That’s neat!

    But not without regard for the double negative!

    Okay, I’ve reached 30k writing fragments of whatever comes into my head at the time; does that really count?

    @daughteroftheking It is tricky. The computer coding I’m playing with is Scratch, which is an online coding language/website. It’s free. (Did I say that already?) *scratches a chair* You can drag and drop the code pieces and edit them a bit. It’s easier than normal coding. 🙂
    @joy I think I could… At least if they’re part of the same book. But they could maybe count anyway. *shrug*

    @joy  That’s an impressive word count! Well done!! I think it counts.

    @catwing Yeah. Programing of any kind is confusing. (at least to me.) 🙂

    @daughteroftheking @joy @catwing so, I realised just then that i kind of abandoned this thread and I feel guilty.

    So here I am! How’s your novels going?

    Also Joy, I’m sure it counts. The aim of Nano isnt to write 30k in order, just to write them. As long as they’reall from the same book, I think its fine.

    @seekjustice The novel is… still alive. That’s about it. 😉 I have a whole new respect for people who do this year after year.

    I’m done! 50k with ten days to go 🙂 I don’t really feel much like celebrating, though, because of how messy this month was, but I do want to keep writing and I think I’ve finally got into a habit of doing it daily, so this month wasn’t a total loss.

    Yay @joy   !

    That’s really good, and even if you don’t feel like celebrating, you made an achievement! Yay! *thumbs up*

    Woah, yeah, it is so close to finished… Wow.

    And all is well over here! Word goal reached and I’m part way through the recovery process.

    Random Snippet…

    Rushed footsteps pound down outside the door. Closer. Closer. My breath hitches in my chest and I mentally snuff out the flames. They vanish. Caeden glances up at the door. Who is it? What’s going on?

    The door flies open, thudding as it hits the wall and a small man runs in, glancing about the room before dropping his gaze to us. “Searcher—” He panted breathlessly and Caeden stands, his forehead creasing into a frown.

    “What is it Wik?” Gone was the usual gentle voice, replaced with a hard one.

    The man called Wik gestures behind him, “The Liabron is on fire! And Callers are streaming down on the city.” He flaps his arms about helplessly.

    Caeden shoots me a glare, “Jade? Is this you?”

    I scowl. He’s accusing me? Just because the word fire was used. Honestly. “No. I don’t randomly burn down forests.”

    But it really does seem that trouble is attracted to fire.

    It has been heaps of fun NaNo-ing with all of you! Keep up the good writing!

    @daughteroftheking *stands in awe of your epic monologue* Yeah I didn’t reach my goals. But that’s ok. It was still fun. Congratulations to all the winners!
