NaNoWriMo - whadami crazy?  

I signed up. 
I have a personal goal:  2000 words.  And not of a short story.  Just 2000 words.

Well, hey.  I may not have a life, but I have a job, five volunteer jobs (I'm guessing; I forget the number), and quite a number of housemates and sorta-housemates to hang out with, not to mention the cats, dogs, chickens, ducks and guinea hens.  

Wish me luck.
Anyone out there doing it too?

I don't have a formal goal, but I want to move forward on my translation project. I ought to be able to do at least ten or fifteen pages by the end of the month.

So are you entering translation text as your NaNo writing? I think I may need to change my focus, as I'm sort of plodding along with (still) 424 words. But I'm not really a novel writer, so perhaps I won't change things. I've got the same username over there, in case you're curious.

I haven't signed up, I'm just doing an informal "do a bunch of work this month" personal challenge.

I am now. I tried it in 2007, but things went crazy. If I keep waiting until I have the time, I'll never do it. So, yes, but if life explodes, or implodes, I will let go of the target and accept the fail.

I'm not really looking on it as a fail if I don't hit 50k - and I really don't expect to, anyway. (A novel written by someone else is currently calling my name....) If you want to find me over there, I've got the same username as here.

Me! This will be my third year. I finished all 50,000 words last year, so my goal this year is to finish both 50,000 words AND have completed the story. We'll see how that goes!

Thanks for the message on NaNo - I haven't really figured out how to maneuver around over there, but I'll get it sooner or later. Perhaps I should add to my miniscule "novel" before I start messing with web pages, though.

Congrats on the 50k success and this year's goal.
