I've heard of it but I'm not sure what it is exactly...

Kira,

From NaNoWriMo
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

So basically you sign up and agree to write 50,000 words in one month. Once you get to the goal you upload your manuscript which is then read by a "robot" and destroyed before any human sees it. The robot counts the words and reports if you succeeded or not. So it's really easy to cheat, if you wanted to. However, the point is to write a book in a month and it is a fun and creative way to get a good jump start on a novel. I've done it once before, though I didn't meet the goal. This year I plan on beating the goal!

-Chris

Thanks Chrisian! I've heard of thm, like I said before, but I never knew the details. I think I'll try it out! It sounds like fun and I always have one too many stories going onin my head. It'll be a good way for me to jot things down and clear my mind. I wouldn't mind working with WF for a "team" thing.

I'm really tempted to do this... Really good timing, too, because I'm just about finished with an outline for a novel. But I have school work... But this will give me motivation to finish a novel! But I have school work!

Argh!

November works for me, I'm totally doing this.

I'd recommend NaNoWriMo to anyone regardless of experience/ability. There are participants from all age groups, all walks of life from all around the globe that do this each year.

I did NaNoWriMo '04 and got in my 50k. If I can do it, anyone can. C'mon! Do it, do it, do it!

I'm in...November is right in the middle of my college application time, so I think it would help relax me and keep my mind off of stuff. Plus I just had a great idea for a novel today. So I'll do it!

I've joined. Can't wait to start, I've had all these idea buzzing around in my head lately. But of course as soon as I heard of this my mind went blank, ha ha! Oh well, I have plenty of ideas. I hope I can accomplish this considering that I don't OWN a computer an' all...
