    I wanted to try for the first time this year, but I will be at the World Fantasy Convention until Nov 2nd, then we have our show we promote on Nov 8th (bodybuilding, fitness, figure) and that week will be just insanely busy.

    I am going to try and different version of NaNoWriMo for myself though, I'm heading to Australia for almost three weeks to visit my brother and sister-in-law (and my mother is there for 3 months visiting them) so with the FLYING and being there...I thought I'd try and do a
    "Novel in 3 weeks in Australia"....AuNoWri3

    Good luck!! Keep us posted on your progress!!

    I've never heard of that before. Sounds like a great idea though I'm afraid I'd most probably get too stressed to manage...

    Has anyone done it before?

    I might find myself doing it just to try to break my writer's block.

    Ok, I got too curious and I've signed up now. I'm ArelinMilloway, being extremely original. I don't know what I'll write or if I'll manage to complete it... Especially as I've got my mock exams in the end of November. But I'll give it a go.

    You could always write about me. I mean, my exploits are known worldwide...just under different names. ;)

    Well, I've gotten as far as thinking of the main character. I don't have much of a plot, but I don't really want too much extreme stuff happening. I'd rather just take it easy. However, that might make reaching the 50 000 mark slightly difficult. I might have to use the plot twister - which is great. ^^ We'll see how it goes.

    Alc: what's your first name? I might name a character after you, as I can never settle down on one name for long.

    Edit: Are you a Josh? In which case. LOL. My character was already called Josh, but I was considering changing it. I'm not then :D.

    Yup, I am Josh :D >.> but shhhh...that name is top secret....

    wait..I just blabbed!!!!

    I'm brain dead as of lately when it comes to plots. Well, I have been working on a young adult novel, but don't want to use that for this, and have put it aside for now. I'm writing that novel a bit differently than usual, which makes it difficult.
    I wish you both well! Hope you can finish :D

    oh and that plot twister link is great! LOL

    I am on the roll with my 2382 words :D. Well, I've got something, anyhow. And the plot actually started to make sense to me last night!
    *feels inspired*

    What did you have in mind Sorcha? Just curious to gage the writing potential of this group. Its always good to write about what you know and love. What might that be?
