Yup, I’m doing it! But I’m not going to kill myself this time around. My personal goal is to write at least 100 words a day. Anyone can do that, so hopefully I can.
I don’t use the forums there, although I do check them out once in awhile and I’ve posted once or twice. But otherwise I do all the stuff–upload a cover, post a playlist, synopsis, excerpt, etc. and update my word count there every day to collect badges. I wish the buddy lists worked like they used to years ago when you could sort your friends list by word counts and see who you’d passed and who was ahead of you.
Anywhoo, I lurve NaNo! It’s so motivating, and I really need some motivation right now. __〆(．．)
You don’t have to start a new book, you know. You could be a rebel and work on something old. I’ve done that before. Well, everyone has, I betcha. ¯\_(ﭢ)_/¯
i think i already talked about it in the struggling writers thread but i’m being a nano rebel this year and continuing on with my current wip rather than starting a new one. I feel like i’ll never finish it otherwise
i’m doing preptober over on my instagram this year! nothing fancy, just posting to my story every day following this:
right? i’m having fun filling it out… even though i don’t know what some of the days mean. what’s a dream novel, nanowrimo?? a novel you want to write? just one?? how do you describe that in an ig post?
idk, i get 0 interaction anyways so i skipped that one
Yes! I’ve had one year off in the… 12? years I’ve been doing it! Pantsing all the way. I decided to do a small, vague plan at the start of October which was a bad idea - that project? Already started and will be finished come November. Oopsies. So at midnight on the 1st, I guess I’ll just wing it!
Ha, I can understand… I usually say to myself “this will be an easy 50k” and by the 100k mark I’m still no closer to finishing. Small bit of advice though, try using Scrivener. It lets you wing it to your hearts content, but you can add in chapter summaries so you can muddle through the mess if it gets overwhelming!
