    I've signed up for it this year. I'm getting all my ducks in a row before November 1st.

    My goal is at least 5,000 words for the month so wish me luck.

    So now that I've actually signed up for NaNoWriMo I kinda feel like puking and running away at the same time.

    Fuck you Anxiety.

    November is National Novel Writing Month and I signed up on their website.

    The winner gets something but I don't know or really care what it is.

    After reading there site everyone who meets the goal of 50,000 words is a winner.

    Sponsors give them stuff. Still don't know or really care what it may be

    That's how many words I'll need to write per day to reach 50,000 by Nov. 30th.

    Attempting to set a 'words per day' limit is tricky and I would suggest not to get bogged down in meeting any such target as you can find yourself writing to hit a target, only to later find that many of those words re useless.

    For example, last weekend I wrote about 5,000 words. This weekend I have maybe only done 500. And while yesterday was rather unproductive, today I have done a similar number of words, I feel that it has been far more productive due to work that has gone into those words.

    My personal goal is 5,000 for the month.

    After only writing 134 words or so in the last 2 years that'll be a major accomplishment

    Don't sell yourself shot. Pulling double duty RPs is still creative writing.

    And rather difficult.

    Although I do rather enjoy being able to practice 2 different writing styles.

    It must be said that WZCW RPs are the only creative writing I have ever done, so any advice I give is somewhat tainted.

    1,688 words today for a total of 3,357 out of 50,000. That personal goal for the month up there is going to be met tomorrow on day 3.

    My goal for 30 days will be met in 3. Holy amazeballs

    I'm seriously amazed at how fun & relatively easy this is. Once again my anxiety lied to me.

    Wrote a total of 2,154 words today for a total of 13,271 out of 50,000.

    Today was also the first day I've ever written over 2,000 words.

    I am a happy person.

    Just wanted to say that people in this thread are an excellent source of inspiration to start my own writing someday.
