The month is nearly 5 hours old here and I haven't even registered my novel yet (will attend to that later today). Once again it's time to write x number of thousands of words in 30 days. I'm probably going to aim for 15,000 but will hopefully get closer to 20,000. Murphy's Law has thrown a wrench into things: The computer that has my previous work on Kingmaker: Rise to the Throne is in the repair shop and won't even be looked at until Tuesday, let alone fixed by Tuesday (thanks, Canada Day). So I'm going to have to start off with isolated vignettes or scenes as I can't directly continue from where I left off (where the Duke is about to learn that he has most unfairly accused his eldest son of an improper relationship with a farmer's daughter, when in fact it was something completely different that happened and wasn't at all improper). Anyway, hopefully I'm not alone in this. @Mouthwash, @Synsensa, are you doing anything this time around? To everyone: Feel free to ask questions, discuss NaNoWriMo (other writing discussions should go in the Watcha Writin'? thread), register and start your own story... Remember, Camp NaNoWriMo allows you to set your own word count goal, so it doesn't need to be as ambitious as 50,000. The object is to encourage people to write every day or set up some other regular writing schedule that works for you. And since winning is based on word count rather than quality (nobody reads what you write unless you choose to share it), the only person you're competing against is yourself.
