It's ages away yet, but November will bring with it another bout of madness as NaNoWriMo will be kicking off again.

I've got bits of a new plot fluttering through my mind, and without the foul fiend of commuting, it's going to be a lot easier to do! Anyone else fancy giving it a go this time through? It's definitely fun, but November does disappear into a haze of writing!

Seeing as all possible future prospects point to me temping and being bored out of my skull in November I'll probably give it a whirl. However this also relies of my dad finally installing a form of working internet in our house! Should be a laugh, and means I'll get writing again. I've hit a wall recently...about 2/3 months long so far...

The English SAT today was vile. What they asked you to do on the writing paper was an AS standard thing - to transpose information from one type of text to a completley separate genre.

Don't let it get to you. I'm now boycotting marking for the SATs papers because of their priorities. You CAN do it - trust me!

What would have been good is...if you somehow got to mark my english paper and just well, *cough*gavemeaseven*cough*
What i didnt like was the shakespeare exam...we had 1 hour 15mins and like 6 pages to write (writing and readin put together) My wrist hurt after id wrote 2 pages. It was ridiculous, i wrote 5 n half pages and my wrist went numb lmao. tongue.gif
Above i think is one of the reasons i have no chance at NaNo...i cant write much!

Anyways...i believe weve already high jacked the question that was put up in this thread!

Whos mad enough to attempt and NaNoWriMo?

I'm definitely, definitely up for it again biggrin.gif I was reading through a transcript of me and Enna when we completed it last year, and it really fired me up to do it this year!

And Willow - why not try giving it a shot anyway? That's the great thing about NaNo - it doesn't matter whether what you're writing is a masterpiece or total rubbish, as long as you churn the words out. And by the end of it, I can guarantee you'd be a better writer from all the practise smile.gif And aside from that, it's pure insane fun. biggrin.gif

I wish I had the time. My senior year is absolutely full of stuff already. I can't wait to see what everyone else has.

Hope felt a shiver of anticipation run through her body at Matthew’s words.

“I do,” was her only reply as she surrendered control of the seduction to him.

“Yes,” added Fred, “funny thing is, though, in addition to the loud thumps we could have sworn we heard two different sets of footsteps.”

I'd considered participating in it this year, but my sister is getting married on November 20, and I'm her Maid of Honor, and as a former events planner, I have a TON of things to do that month. Adding the stress of NaNo would not be beneficial . . . Maybe November 2006?

I'd do it. Definately... just for the heck of it.

But my brain, long plot bunnies, and paper do not seem to mix. The only thing I can ever write is one-shots, and, with no plot bunnies looking forthcoming....

wallbash.gif

Myeh. I'll just hang around and read everyone else's... and yes, (OT - sorry) the English SAT was icky.) In fact, I'm seriously considering an exam boycott for GCSE.... whistling.gif

I'm gonna try it again this year. Last year I wasn't so successful, bogging down after 5500 words or so bag.gif , but I'm gonna give it another shot. Hopefully I'll manage a little better this time. I have less going on this year.

Considering my drop out last year, I'm wondering whether I can actually do this and go through with it. Starting at Uni has made me a lot more dedicated, regular, etc., but...

At least my classes won't get in the way. I have very, very little work to do for most of them. I thought college was supposed to be hard. blink.gif

Maybe.

Well, seeing as I have a pc connected with the internet this year, and also I'm still only temping job wise, writing for the month of November is beginning to look more and more like a possibility biggrin.gif

And I have a plot bunny safely stored in a padded part of my brain

Yoda, it's a shame about the others running loose and doing damage blink.gif

SPB's!


I'm not entirely sure where Imogen obtained it from, and I'm fairly sure it's probably better not to know...

I don't know what I've done wrong but in a completely unprovoked attack a particularly viscous strain of SPD was released today and it wasted no time in seeking out and executing it's simple but effective instructions.

**NEWS FLASH**

Police are today investigating the link between, a recent break-in at a top secret facility in the Scottish Highlands and a stash of Stealth Plot Bunnies found at the home of a prominent fanfiction author.

I am once again going to participate in NANOWRIMO (A challenge to write a 50,000 word story in a month or less) Why is this Imogen's fault? Well I certainly didn't invite tho plot bunny to bite my leg, and if it wasn't for Imogen talking me into taking part last year, I wouldn't even be contemplating letting this bunnie sink it's teeth in any further.
