Aha late to the party but yeah I'm going for NaNo this year. It's my second, and I actually won last year. I'm doing a short story anthology this year since my last plan fell through and I couldn't decide on one thing.

But yeah, I plan to start at midnight roughly two hours from now.

I ended up scrapping my first idea because I realized it would entail a lot of research and careful planning before writing, none of which I did before November 1st.

Then today, I came up with a new story idea, wrote character details, planned a day-by-day outline for writing, and ended up writing 4,296 words for everything I needed to accomplish today.

Holy shit I hope I can actually keep up with this project

I think I'm going to bow out of NaNoWriMo. I'm way behind, pretty busy, and not super into my story. Ah well, maybe next year!

I'll probably break 10,000 words tomorrow. I'm also aware entirely of all the problems with this story in its current incarnation, but if I really want to go through with this, I know where to improve.

I haven't been playing by the proper rules, of course, since I'm just working on a book I already had notes on. That said, I started at 65,000 words, and I'm at 112,000.

So...close...

50,000!

I'm really happy, and sorta relieved right now. I did it.

BTW, if you did finish NaNo, what's your guys' 50,000th word? Mine was 'mind'.
