Aaaaaand I'm doing it this year. I'm half-way plotted, and I'm ahead. Hoorah~

Okay well I'm writing but I don't know what I'm writing, all I know is the main character's name and the setting and it's really hard to write like this because you can only put off personality for so long XD Yeah but I'm doing it again this year, whatever deity is feeling generous help me.

I am going crazy. Loads of my friends are doing it but one of my friends is being so annoying about it.

Like he sat all October and wrote loads of short stories and now whenever you see him, he makes you read and crit every single one (which takes hours). And then he asks you which one he should turn into a novel.

Surely there's a better was of doing it? He's driving us all mad and we're not even doing it.

This is my first year, and I think I'm doing pretty well. I'm a bit behind, but not a whole lot, and I can easily finish on time. :D

heck. I heard of it but not enough. Now it's December so too late :P
I have a question, if I wanna participate next year, when do I start writing?
thank you. :3
no i am not obsessed! I JUST LOVE TALKING ABOUT ARTY 24/7!
no i do not love an imaginary person. YES, HE IS REAL! REAL I TELL YOU!
no i am not weird! I AM TOTALLY CRAZY!
If my heart thumps so quickly...When I hear his name
If I drool while reading books...About him everyday
If I cry when his heart...Is full of searing pain
If I laugh when he starts...To scare people away
If I sleep only to wish to wake...and see his shining face
If I eat only to wish to grow ...pointy ears but in dismay
If I live only to dream to join...the fun in his big game
If I breathe only to hope to be...by his dangerous side always
Then I love Arty fowl...And that love is here to stay ~ artytwin
my greatest secret:
<3 j’adore artemis fowl!<3

November 1st to November 30th. If you start before November 1st it's cheating. Though you can plot ahead characters and plotlines and write out a general plot outline, you can't actually write any piece of your novel till November 1st. XD

Don't mean to doublepost, but it's been a pretty long time, so...

Who's started planning their NaNo 2013 already? :awesome:
Inspiration struck me by a song title, so I already have tons of characters, a plot, and have started my outline spreadsheet. XD I'm really excited. This is going to be my best antagonist yet with how well he's developed, and my protagonist isn't any lightweight, although I can do some more work on her.
I'm pretty pumped!

I'm planning to do it this year - for the first proper time! Although I'm still not sure what to write... For some reason I don't know how to make a storyline with OC's and everything (I blame too much fanfic writing...)! Do you have any advice on how to start? I tried to do it last year, but didn't realise how much I had to research. Result: failed NaNoWriMo, and a notebook with a just-started story waiting on my bedroom floor :(
