      To get the MSN list started, if anyone would like to reach me during NaNo (assuming I actually sign in because I love forgetting to do it on a frequent basis), my public line is [email protected].

      JX Valentine. If you happened to have had one of my old usernames, rest assured that this is the last name change I'm getting. XD; So, yeah, you can add this one to PM me or keep track of my progress or rope me into a thread on the forums. (The forums, if anyone has yet to discover them, are snazzy and full of people who love to do awesome things like get-togethers for writing sessions/support in real life.)

      XD It's perfectly understandable. All throughout November, NaNo likes to take swan-dives in terms of loading capabilities. As in, there might be times when it seems to prefer not loading to actually loading. I tend to forget myself after a few days thanks to giving up.

      Zeta Dimentio My NaNo. And my IM?

      [email protected], I think. It's been a while since I had to look it up, so I'm not entirely sure. Either aol or aim.

      I'm not the one who goes to NaNoWriMo get-togethers. I know my town has some going on, but I'm not interested. I found some more writing fodder for my NaNoWriMo novel: Day of the Dead!

      Also, when the widgets are activated, I'm surely placing one in my sig for all to see.

        Hmmm, I may just enter this year. I have plenty of spare time with 90% of my college apps out of the way.

        Hey, you guys. NaNoWriMo is already starting for some people across the Atlantic. I'm just biding my time before Midnight rolls around my part of the world.

          *high fives* Perfect way to celebrate getting over a massive amount of pain. XD

          Also! I'm logging onto MSN to start off the first hour of PC's NaNoWriMo chat. If anyone wants in on the chatroom, just send me a friends request, and I'll send you an invite.

          By the by, evidently, the MSN name I offered doesn't actually work, but try this one: [email protected]. Sorry about that!

            Decided to do it after all! Or at least try for a bit, haha. My username is re.present.

            By the way, is AIM the same thing as MSN? I am being n00b and getting confused about which program I should download ;.

            Also, if anyone knows anything about Japanese high schools and wouldn't mind answering a bunch of random questions, I will love you forever (yes, I'm doing a shameful high school AU...shush).

              'S okay. There's tons of different chat servers out there, so I can't blame you there. What you'll actually want is this, so it's actually a different program from AIM. Don't worry, though. It's pretty easy to download and run.

              Alas, can't help you with Japanese high schools. If you're absolutely stuck and no one here can't help, though, you could probably give Little Details a spin. You'd need a LiveJournal account for it, but the people there are super-helpful.

                  I added your email address to my contact list and it prompted me to invite you... I think that was the friend request... but I honestly don't have a clue. I think I screwed up somewhere along the line because as soon as I added you it told me I blocked you too, and I had to fix it. ._.


                  Anyway, here is my official NaNo account. Hope you can get to it with the constant website crashes. =P

                  The NaNoWriMo site always crashes at the start and at the end when everybody is validating their novels. I'm up to 2900 words and it's not even the end of Day 1. My usual plan of attack is to write more than the usual 1667 word daily goal so I'll end up with a few extra days of writing in case something happens.

                    Aha! So PC did have its own Nano thread!

                    Excellent. It's Day 2 already, and I have passed the word goal by a thousand or so.

                    ...Though, honestly, I need to organize my plot or I'm going to crash.

                    ...my IM, you say? firestorm95(at)gmail.com - this is MSN, though I have Google Talk as well.

                    NaNo site is lagging hard right now. I'll see about getting on later...

                      Oh man! I forgot all about this! ALL ABOUT IT. I'm so busy this week too ;_;. Guess I'm bringing my laptop to the convention. And who knows, maybe the scenery will be good for my writers block.

                      -goes off to write-

                      Oh, my msn is [email protected]

                      and my Nanowrimo name is Narcissus_Secret.

                      Aren't I just creative? n__n

                        I've passed the 10,000 word mark just now! I hope to hit 12,000 words by the end of today.

                          9,900-ish words as of last night. NaNo account name: A.wa.re
                          I feel a little insane for taking this on during such a busy month, but I really wanna do this. : P
                          Good luck to everybody else who's taking this on!

                              On NaNo's website, there's a page under Fun Stuff where you can pick up widgets. It's just a matter, after that, of switching out the HTML for BB code. So, for example, if you wanted something like this:



                              You'd swap out this:

                              713918.png

                              For this:

                              [img]http://www.nanowrimo.org/widget/LiveSupporter/713918.png[/img]

                              And then just put that in your sig, and you're done.

                              Also! Sorry there haven't been any chatrooms this past week. (Or if there have, that's cool too.) What do you guys think about having one this coming weekend, since it'll be around the halfway point?

                                NaNoWriMo isn't updating my word count! I have 914 words, but it says I have 877! What is wrong with it!?!?
                                Ignore my question, it's working again!

                                  Hi there! I really enjoy writing but have been procrastinating on my current novel for far too long, so perhaps this is my chance to plunge, once again, into the world of literature. x)

                                  My MSN is [email protected], and my NaNoWriMo site username is Coukie.

                                  I hope I can complete NaNoWriMo for the first time in my life, haha. I chose quite a month, too (I have two AP classes this trimester at school)!

                                  I hit the 16,000 word mark. I'm about 3 days ahead of schedule right now. My stats say that I'll most likely finish by the 23rd if I kept up my pace.

                                    This weekend would be cool, but will it be in the morning, afternoon, or evening-ish?

                                      I've been Week Two'd.

                                      I'm basically doing a soft rewrite of everything in my plot right now, filling in a ton of plotholes, adding in new details and subplots, etc. Oh boy.
