I'm tempted, but I'll only have three weeks as we are visiting the UK for 8 days in November and I don't have a laptop. I completed NaNo in 2012 in three weeks but that was then. Lol ... I have too many distractions now!

Probably not. Hopefully, I'll have my WIP done before the 50K mark from now. Story's already 201K, and I've been adding about 1K+ per day for a couple months now. Don't think I'll have enough story left to do another 50K after November starts (or at least, I hope not--this thing's too huge already). Technically, I think I'm supposed to start an all-new project for NaNo anyway, and that ain't happening because--even once I'm done with this first draft--I'll be stuck in rewriting hell for the foreseeable future.

According to my Brexit 'leave' friends, the UK is not my home :dispirited::dispirited: I am a displaced person. Hey, we could certainly write over 50, 000 words about Brexit :)

But they aren't really friends, are they? Did you have a say in the 2016 referendum? I understand that people who have lived abroad more than fifteen years didn't get a vote.
I don't know where in the UK you are headed, but if you're anywhere around Gatwick way I'd be delighted to meet up for coffee. I'm in nearby Crawley, about four miles from the airport.

EDIT:
I've probably read over fifty thousand words on Brexit, and written a few thousand myself. However, I try to keep that off this site and post it to Quora. Although you're not allowed to, I use a pseudonym on there.

SECOND EDIT: There's a crucial vote in the Commons on Saturday. It could go either way. The vote is whether to accept the squidgy deal that Boris negotiated. If it falls, there might be enough support to run another referendum with squidgy deal and Remain as the choices. It could happen, but it's so close it could go either way. I heard on Radio 4 earlier that they reckon it's currently 300 apiece with 39 who could vote either way. Penalty shoot-out, I reckon.
The deal sounds like yet another fudge but, hopefully, fudge will be tariff-free.

You know... I'm sadly not finished with the WIP... at 221K... so, what the hell, I'll join. I probably won't make it, but I'll try.

Signed up :D

Doing it, doing it. This middle grade gothic horror fantasy isn't going to write itself, you know. Well, actually, I'm sort of hoping it is.
