Good luck!

I really want to do NaNoWriMo one of these years. I just have to find the time, inspiration and motivation. I have an idea knocking around in my head, but I just don't know that I can do it this year. I still have a few days to decide... ;)

Are you going to share your novel with your friends list?

I think that is why I decided to do it. "one of these years" is why I haven't even started yet, so I thought the deadline would force me to write something, even just to see if I like it.

November is always a tough month for me - always a lot going on with people I know, things to do to the house, and, of course, the dreaded holidays. Why not NaFebWriMo?

I'll likely share it. It depends on what the topic ends up being though.

It is exciting! I did it last year. It's pretty intense, but really fun :)

Did you like your novel at the end?

I did, but what you end up writing in that month is pretty rough and needs to be edited. Then the problem becomes when can you find time to edit it. That's the hard part. I still haven't finished editing mine because right after I had to start preparing for an engineering license exam. Now that I've taken it I hope to be able to do that this month.

I think you'll love it and it was just the kick in the ass I needed. I had been moaning and groaning about writing something for so long but hadn't done anything to start. I think you might feel the same way, especially if you already have an idea.

my friends and I were just discussing this today. I am going to do it, writing about my wl journey.

How very funny...

Wow! I wanted to write an emotional workbook for life after WLS, but I thought this had to be fiction? Is that not the case?

I've signed up too. I finished in 2002. Have you done it before?

Never have tried it. How much do you need to write a day to complete it?

1667 words per day. Or, 1666.66666666 etc. I really enjoyed it. Good luck!

The last two years I signed up for it but never did it. I would like to try again this month.
