National Novel Writing Month 2013; AKA NaNoWriMo

I did a quick search, and not to my surprise, saw that there have been topics for NaNoWriMo in the past. I was just wondering if anyone else is planning to attempt the challenge this year, and if so, what are you writing about? This is my first year that I have had ideas on what to write myself. I am torn between the younger years of possibly my favourite character that I have ever written, or the fates of two worlds inexplicably linked by magic.

For those who have never heard of NaNoWriMo before, it is a challenge to write fifty thousand words of a story during November. It has a large following, and generally stressful, fulfilling and maddening or so I am told.

I've been planning on doing one this year. I've got some ideas, mostly modern fantasy-style since that's the easiest genre for me. I don't expect it to be good, but I think I can finish at least!

I'm going to try this, but I'm probably a fool considering how many projects I have coming up in November. Ah well, might as well try.

Same as above.

It'll be about a class of 37 students.

Each one will be a main character.

And I plan to make two version in different languages.

This'll probably crash and burn, but I'm an ambitious person.

(btw for those wondering about the 37-students thing, it'll just switch POV every chapter)

I'm in the midst of a different novel, but maybe I'll try to write it by November's end.

I'm probably gonna pass this time, but I wish all those doing it tons of luck. It's a great project. Also, fun trivia: Irene's cousin lives like five minutes from the NaNo HQ, so we all went and posed in front of it for some pictures.

Wow okay, that's more people than I was expecting! Has anyone else registered on the site yet, and do we want to add each other to read the stories as they are written, and motivate each other to get it done?

I'm on there, predictably, as Imehal. Feel free to add me!

So. Here, NaNoWriMo is 4 hours away, and I'm pretty sure it's started for the Kiwis (as well as some other people in Pacific nations like Kiribati) and will start very soon for the Aussies.
