    Going to a "Countdown to Midnight" write-in tonight. Write-ins are awesome.

    I attempted this last year, without ever having attempted writing more than a few assigned short stories, and a lot of free-flow poetry by my own will. It was a challenge mainly because I love my novel plot too much to bullshit it, so I got about 22k words in before ceasing to preserve it. It's definitely a fun thing, can cause awesome connections and inspiration, and is worth it if you can make the time. I seriously thought I wouldn't cohesively get past 2,000 words. Despite not finishing, it was still a huge triumph.

    - I do miss the write-ins . Myself and another Nano-er organized a few in my portion of Jersey. It was great writing amidst others, swapping our very different ideas, and just putting ourselves out there. Go to them if they are in your area!

    Good luck all of you Nano-ers!

    First day, 1212 words! And the NaNo website crashed.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I've got half a plot. But I didn't know I was doing this till yesterday evening.

    Keep it up, you'll be on your third draft by the end of the month.
