    It's something silly, paranoid, artsy writer girls do because they're slightly masochistic. Or sadistic, if they do it competitively and they're good at it.

    Actually, you ARE silly and amusing. Everyone knows you're a bit of a clown.

    So, strike all the other things off the list. It's something silly, goofy people with a certain sense of humor like to do.

    Oh, I was defining "silly" another way. As in, inconsequential or dumb.

    I did it last year, didn't quite make it, but I hit 30,000 words! 1,000 a day people, oh yes. xD

    It's something silly, paranoid, artsy writer girls do because they're slightly masochistic. Or sadistic, if they do it competitively and they're good at it.
    Clearly, someone lost last year.
    (In seriousness, it's a way to get off your lazy butt and produce something to edit later. It's like, a dare to procrastinating writers everywhere.)

    Do you approve of anything?


    I forgot the "win" thing. That's pretty funny, everyone wins if they complete it?

    Just decided, maybe, to do this. Found out about it 18 minutes ago. Will be absurd

    The Nano forums are as much fun as the writing process itself. So, if you really want to hit 50k, I suggest staying off the forums each day until after you reach your daily wordcount goal. If you don't hit your goal that day, do not allow yourself on the forums until you catch up the following day.

    I won once, think it was 2003 or 2005. I had a fairly coherent story, but you really have to not edit at all if you want to hit 50k. If you write something you don't like just keep on writing anyway, no matter what. Because of this, if you have a novel idea you are serious about writing, Nano may not be a good fit for you. You would need to have your outline very well mapped-out and then stick to it in order for Nano to be beneficial. Otherwise, I see it as a big brain-storming exercise where you end up with about 150 pages of brainstorming. Fun in and of itself, but not much use otherwise unless you plan ahead and then stick to the plan.

    Nano is fast approaching. I now have:

    -basic plot
    -basic characters
    -setting
    -supporting characters
    -several overall themes
    -key events that move the story forward
    -a rough idea of the ending
    -conflict

    So, I'm ready to go, although ideally I will create a rough outline. (The fun is filling in the in-between parts as you go, so I try not to get too detailed with my outline.)

    I just wanted to mention, for those of you that enjoy writing but have trouble accessing the official forums that are frequently slow/down, that Absolute Write Water Cooler also has Nano forums here: NaNoWriMo and Beyond - Absolute Write Water Cooler
