    Ignore my question, it's working again!
    Nano's site tends to run slow most of the time, with people constantly updating, using the forums, or whatever other features they have on the site. So if it's slow, that's why.

    I'm glad to see everyone doing so well. Especially for November, which I know can be busy.

    I'm past the 25k mark. Actually, I'm past the 26k mark right now. And I still got half the month left. I might beat my own record of November 25th.

    I don't know if I can pull this off.... I've been stuck at 6,000 words for almost two weeks now. I have all but lost interest in my idea.
    Doesn't help that my sister's laptop (Which is my only means for internet) keeps eating MSN...
    I don't think I'm cut out for this. I'll accept help from those of you who are better than me, (Which look's to be 100% of you) but I don't know what to do myself.
    -sigh-
    Good luck to the rest of you, but I think I might have no choice but to tap out now.

    I AM HERE.

    I LIVE.

    AND I AM DOING NANOturnoffcapslockjeezWriMo. You can find me at Misheard_Whisper, as well as here on the YWP (only 15, bubs!). The best part of the YWP is being able to set your own word goal. Most use it to lower the goal because 50k is a bit much for most school-age students, but I'm being a moron and raising it instead. XD 120k, here we come! (and yes, I know it only says 90k. 120k is my mental goal.)

    And maaaaayun, is November ever busy. Ugh. I have ten exams throughout the month. TEN. I've had seven of them, so most of the pressure's off, but I still have to juggle NaNo with studying for the one exam that I still actually need to study for. Bleh.

    /me is considering pulling an all-nighter tonight, just for the hell of it.

      It's the last day of NaNo, guys! How'd everyone do?

      Myself? Hit 50k, so I'm now basking in the glory that is how much crap and filler my novel became over a period of four weeks. b)'')b

      I did so terribly.
      I was stricken with writer's block so often that I never breached 7k on my word count.
      It also didn't help that I had another "hot" idea (That after almost 4 months barely breached 20k on words) brewing that my mind kept returning to.
      /sigh
      I really don't believe I was cut out for this stuff. :c

      I congratulate you for finishing however, and the rest of you as well. I can bank on the fact that you all did far better than I.

        I did pretty well for my first year at it, considering I reached the 50005 words! xD

        Now for the month-long of cleaning up and reviewing the novel; I might add an epilogue. Depends on what I can come up with. xD

        I couldn't even do it. This month was just filled with so much pure CRAP that I couldn't really write until this week. And that just sucks, since I wanted to do this.

        But congratulations on those who were able to make it.

        I finished! My wordcount total was 127,649 across one and a half novels. Or, more accurately, across one novel and a tiny smidgeon of an epic-length comedy fanfiction that I expect to stretch for a couple of hundred thousand words at least. :/

        I'm now 3 for 3 in NaNoWriMo. I finished on the 23rd with around 54k words by the time it was to validate.

        Now to slap that new winner's badge in my sig!
