Good luck, Raptor :) please keep us updated as to your progress!



Yep, it's gonna be your year! Please don't forget to to let us know how you're progressing :) 1650 plus words a day, every day for only a month...it's got to be a doddle, no?

I always say 1650 is a doddle, but then life gets in the way and before long I need to write 4k a day etc etc, need to keep on top of it this year. :)

While I have previously written over 50k in under a month, I have never participated in NaNo. I'm looking forward to it though!

Advice, don't think about how far you have to go - think only of how far you've already gotten. :D

Last year I hooked up with some writing buddies and we motivated each other. :)

Why not post your word count here on a daily basis and we can offer you guys some moral support.

As Stephanie said

Just believe in yourself and you can accomplish anything

Tomorrow starts the 50,000 words. The only thing is on November 9,10 I'm going to be Jersey City all day for a Jehovah's Witness thing so I won't get home till late. By the time I get home I'll just enough time to eat dinner, shower and go to bed on the 9th. I'll be exhausted. I don't know what I'm going to do on those two days.

I'm making it my personal goal to do 2,000 words a day. That way I'll be covered for contingencies -- I have a show with my band on the 5th and I'm not sure how much I'll be able to write that day, as well as birthdays of my girlfriend and my mom. So, I'll do 2,000 a day and more if I can.

Hi Cassie,

dakota offers a great suggestion. (You will need to recalculate your daily word count)

Good Luck with NaNo :)
