In about 15 minutes I’m going to go to my writing computer for the first time in a couple of months* to begin creating new words. I was not nearly man (or foolish) enough to start Nano at 12:01am, although I’m sure plenty of people were, but I’ve decided I’m not going for 75K this month as I’d originally intended, so hopefully I don’t need the early start. (Instead I’m going to try the impossible, which is to spend the next week not only getting 1700 new words a day written on TRUTHSEEKER, but also getting the revisions on WALKING DEAD done. I expect I’ll know by tomorrow whether I can do that or not. I have never successfully written one novel while revising another, so I’m not hopeful, but I’ll give it a shot. NNWM goes on the back burner until the revisions are done if I can’t.)

I’m here (ce_murphy) at the NaNoWriMo site. I am not, sadly, smart enough to figure out how to find other people to buddy them there unless they provide a direct link or buddy me first, so hopefully you’ll find me. :) And I’ll be at my writing community, toonowrimo/toonowrimo, all month. Maybe I’ll even manage to keep it resurrected for challenges into the new year, although I think I’ll just try to get through November first. :) Anyway, good luck to all my fellow Nanoers! :)

*Ok, technically I’ve been there to do a couple of short story bits and to type in revisions, but I have not sat at Nook to commit Noveling since about August 11th. So that’s what I’m counting.

Nanowrimo first timer.
Well this is my first year to Nanowrimo. I found Live Journal just as it was finishing up last year and have been thinking about it ever since. I hope that things work out so that you get to continue Nano. You are my first writing buddy on the Nano site. I also put you as one of my favorite authors. Well... back to the word count!! Good luck!

I'm participating informally, which won't make it any less fraught.

Good luck babe! I'll be pulling a Nanoedmo. I have 20,000 words to kill. :)

Of course I don't mind! Although the site seems to be suffering first-day blues very badly...

I'm having to remind myself that frantically tapping the screen over the word count won't make the release date come any faster....Stupid addictions! At least I've passed that addiction along to the girlfriend when I let her borrow Winter Moon and TQB...Now I'm having to re-order any of the books I no longer have. ARgh...So just twitching away in withdrawal whilst watching wordcounts climb oh so high, high, high...

I probably should stick to posting after the morning caffeine...
