  1. Lol, you made me snort… a lot, which is what I do when I find someone ridiculously entertaining. :PYou did the right choice! I mean, at first NaNo can be very intimidating. To be honest, I didn't make it the first time I tried.. but then I didn't have so many friends who are both writers and nano enthusiasts.So the trick is to just write. Some days it will be, well, crappy. VERY crappy. But you keep moving those fingers, even if it hurts you.Which reminds me, some people get finger cramps toward the end. I wonder if that girl will do 999,999 words again this year. Hmm.Anyway, I totally appreciate that you include me and my brand new site. Also, I feel the same way about twitter. I didn't even know what it was for at first, or what kind of friends I wanted (writers, duh), but then it all fell into place.*sigh* Thanks for this lovely post!

  2. I'll see you there at NaNo! It will be my first year too, so cross your fingers for me, 'kay? and I'll do the same for you. I'm so glad you mentioned Lyn's wonderful NaNo site. She is such a sweetie!PS – saw this post on Twitter. So, see – it works!

  3. Nanowrimo can be really intimidating, but there's nothing like that rush when inspiration hits and your word count takes a big jump, or when you bust through a troublesome plot hurdle, or when you get the mythical purple bar that Wrimos covet. And you'll probably find out that you're capable of more than you thought. Good luck!

  4. We're in the same boat (or canoe… *cough*), as this is my first NaNo too! I'm sure there will be plenty of help from the twitter folk who've done it before. I signed up to twitter on 22nd September and I can't stay away from it now!Good Luck 😀

  5. Welcome to the insanity! I"m "bej" on the forums and it is totally doable – minus some sleepness nights and caffeine-addled frustration. It can really convince you NOT to hem & haw about editing; you don't have time to get a better word/sentence choice. JUST WRITE!I need those pushes because I do so love to hem & haw… 😉

  6. Catherine – I am extremely addicted to Twitter as well! Glad to hear we're in the same canoe ;)CE Schwilk – I'm ALWAYS trying to edit my work while I'm right in the midst of it. This will definitely be a great challenge for me.
