Chances are I'll be writing my entire short story on night of November 29 :P

I still think you all are insane for trying to write so much in a month. I enjoy writing fiction when I can come up with ideas, but only occasionally (i.e. when I feel like it). There are probably several people here who can testify to my sporadic and lackadaisical approach to writing. :P

In other news, I need a vacation. Or some sleep.

How the heck do I do anything on NaNoWrimo?!
I'm sorry, I have figured out basically nothing about the site yet...including how to upload my story.
EDIT: I figured it out.
And in the spirit of things, my NaNoWriMo account is foreverphysics. Big surprise.

For all of you: (esp. Z and FMM) what do you usually write with? Pen and paper? [My hand gets too tired] Microsoft Word? [I stop writing and look for diversions, like cats jumping off furniture. Microsoft has a creepy way of shutting you brain down with the blue and white background, like what's happening to me now while posting this] by WordPad? [pigeon speech recognition software, I refuse to say "period" after each sentence.]

I did NaNo two (three?) years in a row, before wild College Applications appeared, and I recommend http://writeordie.com/.

I'd assume a majority uses MS Word. Aspiring novelists tend to work digitally. I couldn't imagine handwriting everything and then having to typewrite it later...

yWriter5 is good for organizing your novel, but its impossible to get everything together, and especially if you are like me, with many scenes and no definite chapters yet, it is impossibly irritating to have to have a new "mini doc" for each scene, and see a "chapter 1" heading >.<

so, I think I'll stick with my ole buddy MS word this year

I considered trying NaNoWriMo for all of thirty seconds, until I remembered I'm no good at writing. :lol:
