I've started but I'm torn between two stories. XD Both have a decent beginning for today but I'm concerned for it. XD

I'm doing it for the first time this year. I've finished part 1 of mine, and will be moving to part 2 later today.

Despite that snowstorm we had in my area and being without power until Monday night, I started my NaNoWriMo journey and have gotten 1917 words done.

A good start.

Well, day 1 was a bust for me, but I hope I can double up day 2 and get to ~3500 words.

I need to make up a writing playlist. Listening to Sirius radio isn't working. I can't write to Coldplay or John Mayer. I guess I'll have to live with Pandora.

192 words at the time of this post. 507 is where I'm stopping tonight. I need some sleep.

I've managed up to 3802, at the present moment. Far behind where I want to be, but I'm quite pleased with what I've written. I'm going to attempt a big writing spurt this weekend. Hopefully I'll get to around eight thousand by Monday morning.

I've found that it's a rather refreshing way to write. Usually I'm very critical of what I write - I go back and edit things constantly. If I can't get something to "sound right" I get frustrated with what I'm writing and stop, then get reluctant to go back to it.

So far I got around 3,100 words on my NaNo project. I was hoping I would get a bit more done, but so far I'm satisfied with what I wrote. Some parts I might have to revise, but that can be later. I plan to get quite more writing done today and the next few days after I get few things taken care of first.

I really expected to have more free time for this. As it is I feel asleep working on it last night and have been using today to play catch up. I've gotten to 5000 words now, but I also gotta get today's share added to that or I'll be behind forever. D: At least I'm not angsting over the stuff I've already written.

I'm about at 5000 now in my work. But I'm expecting a drastic drop in my work's progress (MW3 and Skyrim, why you come out on this month?). At any rate, it has been a good month for writing for the most part. NaNo actually has an official site that I only heard about yesterday. It sounds interesting.

I'm now past the 8000 mark at the end of today. So, I'm averaging 2000 words a day. This is my usual tactic because I want to have a few days buffer in case something happens and I can't write.

I had no power for the past week. :D

After just getting power back last night and before having to go to bed because I work early on the weekends, I tried to catch up to the general NaNo word count. I got 4202 words typed, using the first chapters of two fics.

My plan is to get what I have written for all the fics I have for one particular fandom and see which one catches my interest enough to be poked at for an entire month.

I'm glad it's NaNoWriMo time because it gives me something to do with my life. (: I'm actually going to start bringing mine to school because I'm starting to fall behind, & I wanted to be at 25,000 by the 15th, which is next Tuesday. I'm at 9,000 some odd words, & today's goal is 11,000 some odd words. But November is a slack month, I have no school tomorrow, no school Friday, & Thanksgiving break, so I think I'll be fine. I don't have to be at rehearsal every day now, which makes me glad, so I'm spending my time at home typing my heart out.

I have a friend who organizes the get together at the library I volunteer at, and she insists that there's no way one could have a social life, go to school, AND get 50,000 words in NaNoWriMo. I intend to prove her wrong, one way or another. And even if I have 49,999 words, I will edit the hell out of my novel to get there.

Mmmkay, so I haven't really told anyone except a handful of friends at school what my novel is about, so yeah. I'm kinda basing it off of the Percy Jackson series (which I just finished checking the whole series out yesterday, & the kiddies will have to wait till I finish NaNoWriMo) in the sense that there's kids with special abilities/powers, but they get taken to a camp (which is unnamed at the moment) at an earlier age. And then there's the enemy, who is working to take over the world by any means necessary, which is basically, since it's a technologically advanced society set in the future, taking down all technology: power, internet, anything and everything relevant to technology. The enemy is based off of an RP that a friend & I are working on (rather slowly), and the characters are from different countries, and they are rather fluent in their country's language. (Thank you, Google Translate, for teaching me other languages beyond Spanish & the miniscule amount of Russian that I know.) So yeah, that's my story in a nutshell.

I was on par with word count goals the first three or four days, but by day 5... you see, what had happened was... theatre. And the SAT, which I dread the scores for. But I will finish.

I . . . I don't know where I stand with NaNo right now. Exams started last week so I've had limited time, and my motivation went downhill when I realised I really didn't want to write Icebane. But now I'm cheating a little bit and using it for Champion Game to a certain extent. I think in the last six days of the month when exams are over I will go back to either Icebane or Frequency and go at it hammer and tongs to make up the wordcount deficit, because losing NaNo is something that I just cannot abide. I won't have that black spot on my record, no sir. But yeah, I'm kind of in limbo right now.

Okay, I am so sorry, but I can't help but spaz out at your signature and your avatar. SUNNY, TAEYON, AND TIFFANY FTW. <3

(coughs)

I'm like 10,000 words where today's word count is supposed to be. I just fail.

I wrote seven pages for my NaNo novel in one night!

And then I got plans to rework the entire plot and I feel like kicking myself. Because I won't be able to work on the current version now that I have new ideas floating in my head.

I wasn't able to update my novel in the past...week or so and now I'm 20,000 words behind.

I feel discouraged.

I feel terrible, I haven't really started anything yet. I knew this would happen, oh well too late now.

Good luck to rest of you!

Late joiner to the thread but hello!

I'm about 10k behind right now because I spent five evenings fretting over writing a job application. But if I manage to write about 3k per day, I can still make it. I've already proven that I can do that, as I have managed to several times over the past month.

I've been following and using @NaNoWordSprints on Twitter, which has proven to be the most effective way. Oh, and I did a pretty awesome sprint of 770 words or so against Misheard Whisper. :D

Nice to see people here still writing away. We're down to the final 10 days and I'm very close to the 40k word mark.

I think I might end this well before validation begins! XD

A couple nights ago I finished one of the writing projects I'm using for NaNo. I actually like how I end it, although I'll have to probably revise the last chapter after I get the earlier chapters polished. Later today I'll get started on my second project for NaNo. Don't think I'll be able to finish that one for Nano, but I'll write what I can!

I just spent five days in Blenheim without internet, so I got a massive amount of writing done. I'm now totally caught up, and even a day or two ahead, I think. I'd like to push ahead with that, but I have exams over the next couple of days, so I might have to take a bit of a break from NaNo to focus on those. After that, I'll be back into it for the last few days. I won't lose NaNo this year, but I won't make 127k like I did last year.

I started about 11 days ago and I have about 6000 words of fully edited non drabbled content. I know this isn't much or anything.. but it's my first fanfiction (ever) and I think it's quite a bit of progress for a first timer :3 Wish me luck <3 And happy writing, guys!
