Nine hours and twenty minutes til midnight in the UK
heh its 9am 1st of November in Australia
Maybe we could just post our user names theire, prob could find each other
Just eating breakfest, plotting outlines.
It's my first time, too. I'm trying to stifle my inner editor. Maybe during the frenzy I'll actually get something done.
625am november 1 2008 time to begin
10:43am here. 2268 words =). So, how do we do this? Do we edit our original post with the new word count or do we post another post?
It's 5pm here and I've written 1,813 words.
Nowhere near like what I wanted, but I'm having issues with my MP3 player and can't switch off from the kids running around. Hopefully I'll be able to add another K to that once the brats are in bed.
(I love them really)
1,055. That's a lot for me.
3:28 p.m. Do you know where your NaNo is? I've got 2,321 words... the highest of anyone who's posted so far! *gloats*
Okay. Well, anybody else dead tired? I stayed up till midnight last night just to write a few hundred words for the formality of it, then I finished up the first chapter a few minutes ago. I'll probably work on it a little more tonight, if I don't spontaneously combust, first...
What do you mean, fanatical?...
Day day down, 0 words - chew on that
Its 8am thought and im aobut to start (had to, HAD to finish something before i started this.
The person who created this COULD put up a list of people tand have them PM them for updates, that would make it very easy to see how people are doing
Just a suggestion....you know
At the end of day one, 1795 words. I was hoping for more on a Satuyrday, but hopefully as I get past the beginnings, the words will flow more readily.
1425 words for me. Got a late start. I think I had too much fun last night.
I figured I'd try this this year. Unfortunatly I'm pulling out an old story concept that's a spin off of The Book of the Moon and i've made so many changes to it's base source that I'm completely redoing the outline XD.

* I don't know how much more I can do today. It's election day and I'm not sure how that will work out. I can think o a dozen things that can go wrong with my typical luck in these matters XD. EDIT: Voting went OK, better than I'd expected it too XD.
Last year: 72K on a WIP thriller in a European language.
Now: overambitious so I want to write two NaNos = 100K.
I have 7,706 words on an English-language fanfiction, and I'll start later (sometime between now and Nov 16) on another WIP thriller in a European language.
Day 1 - 0 words
Day 2 - 2,700 words
Slow start, but a start netherless. Still got 4 hours of today left, b ut football is on, no need to worry tonight.
Day 1 - 1553
Day 2 - 2886
2 days in and 5698 words completed. Pretty pleased. Hopefully I can keep this tempo up.
Day 1 - 2,474
Day 2 - 8,635
Total - 11,109
Total so far 2363. Going back at it before the night is over.
Struggled to make the 3376, only managed it because it was the weekend. I don't see any way I can maintain this pace during the work week.
Some 11,300 in three days. Pretty much on target for my plans, but not outstanding. I can't afford to lose even one day.
Day 1 - 0
Day 2 - 2,700
Day 3 - 1,354
Total - 4,054
though a day and a half behind. But after spending 3 days of outlining and slowly writing a little out, i think tomorrow i'll be on my way to the first 10k hopefully.
Day 1 - 1,553
Day 2 - 2,886
Day 3 - 4,577 (Although still 1hr 30min left of day 3) planning to push past 5k tonight.
Chiming in a bit late here but:
It's day three, 4.23pm and I'm at 4,012... hopefully will add a little to that this eve.
Is anyone else using the NaNoWriMo to kick start a project?
