Man, it feels awesome.
How'd the rest of you (who did it) do?

No, anyone who gets over 50,000 words wins. So it's not as big as you think.

*huggles back*
Thanks, though. :D

Bleh, you still won. You are now officially my idol for getting more than 60k words in one month XD

/Edit: I'm starting to work on mine already (I'm a cheater XD ). I'm coming up with plots and stuff. If you guys have any tips for inspiration, it would be apperciated! ^_^

Thanks.

You know, you can outline all you want beforehand.
But..don't cheat, I beg you. That takes all the fun out of winning it.

Meh, I only got like... 2 or 3 parts written, they're very short, and I still don't know if I want to introduce anything else or get to the point in the get-go...

Hmm...

and I'm out of ideas too, that doesn't help. So you don't have to worry about cheating. XD

Alright, then.

If you ever sign up at the NaNo website, let me know, okay? Then you can be my writing buddy.

Hey, is anyone else here planning to do Screnzy??
