Are you doing nanowrimo this year?

I know that at least a few of my friends are writing 50,000-plus-word novels this year as part of nanowrimo. Are you joining the crazy fun?

If you're doing nano this year - or just thinking about it - and are in the Toronto area, I hope to see you at the launch party this Friday! If you somehow missed the news of the launch party, check out the Ontario - Toronto section of the nano forums.

I've done it in the past, but this year, I can't even imagine having the time. Getting a 2000 word assignment I've got to do this week feels just as impossible as a 50K novel in a month.

Still, the very idea is inspiring.

I think I'm going to do that NaKnitMo thing that we talked about - might possibly join some creative sessions if I'm in town to lend support and bring my knitting, but we'll see. :)

I'd better prepare this weekend by finding the projects that I'm going to tackle.

I'd like to, but where do you find the time to do that and be a tech writer with the crazy deadlines you seem to have?

I write on my PDA + foldout keyboard, which travels everywhere with me. I write in the morning over breakfast (instead of checking email/breakfast), I write at lunch, I write when waiting for a dr appointment, and I write in the evening.

It looks like my deadlines will be less crazy in November, which makes me hopeful. I also have just over a week of vacation scheduled in November.... but I do best if I'm already on track, as I'll be busy with friends and family.

I'm in. This year, I'll actually be carrying my Dana (AlphaSmart Plus) with me during the commute instead of (gulp) knitting. That's three hours of writing right there.

(And wheeeeee! on the Mysterious Paris progress, btw!)

I'm doing NaNo and am in the Toronto area (in fact, that's probably why I have your lj XP) but unfortunately that's on the same night (and at virtually the same time) as a hallowe'en party that I'm going to with some friends. ;_;
