Is anyone having a go at NaNoWriMo this year? (Write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days)

National Novel Writing Month

I did it last year and managed 54,000 words - mainly drivel - but it was a good challenge. Looking back, there were some parts I don't remember writing at all, and I managed to resurrect one of my characters :8855:

It starts a week tomorrow, but I'm not even sure of my plot yet. Eek!

I am having a go this year, I didn't get past day 1 last year as other things got in the way, but this year I am determined to finish it! I am reading Chris Baty's No Plot No Problem at the moment to maximise my chances of doing it.

I'm thinking of doing it. Did it two years ago and enjoyed it (although I've never looked at the novel since - I know it needs severe rework!). But it's a good thing to do & I do have an idea for this year. If I do going to use Scrivener for it. Just discovered this absolutely brilliant word processing tool for novel writing. Currently using it for a spoof World of Warcraft book I'm publishing chapter by chapter on my blog & it's helping me keep track of everything. I think it will make NaNoWriMo life easier.

Well done on completing last year! I tried last year and gave up after about 8k. Not sure if I'll do it this year as I've got an OU TMA due at the end of the month :/
