I'm BlackOpal on the site.
Just hit 17K!

Yeah... I don't have time either.
Oops... I should be doing that essay... Or that take home exam... Or that reading... Or that other reading...

Or I could write more!
Thanks to darvit and /b/for my signature. :D
And thanks Kagoma, for the awesome birthday present that is the C&H sprite!

Only 8,547.
So I'm on FG why?
I'm not sure. I should be writing. I promised BlackOpal I would...
oh, by the way, if anyone wants to find me on NaNo, I'm carino. Probably already said that, but...

good luck to everyone else!

I'm around 12,000. I did Write or Die yesterday, the hardest mode, so that gained me like 2k in only 30 minutes. I am so lacking behind but I've tests and all, so yeah... Well, 12k isn't too bad, there's still Panic Time! (Kudos to whoever knows from who I stole that name xD )

I'm quitting NaNo.
I never did well with deadlines. Having severe ADHD does that to you. Besides, writing isn't as important to me as it is to most of FG.
My novel will sit in the back of my closet for years, and maybe one day I'll pull it out and finish it.
Looking back, I'm wondering why I, a ADHD thirteen-year-old, ever thought I could keep up with people like the majority of the WriMos.
Best of luck to all you NaNoers! I hope no one else goes the way I did.

^ I quit too.

I can't find it in myself to write with my own characters, it's just so hard. You can submit fanfic and I just might submit my November ones.

I did it. So I'm kinda in extacy now. Forgive my rambling, but I've been trying every year since 2006 and I was starting to believe my personality was too distracted to ever do it. But now... I did it. Rejoices, I'm so happy^^

Reviving this thread in time for AugNaNoWriMo! This will be my first time round. My story will be based on my now dead RP, L'Hotel della Notte e Sole. It wasn't called that, I just updated the translation..
Anyone else going to try this August?

It's just called AugNoWriMo, I fink. XD why not join JulNo? anyways, imma join NaNo. More convenient for me. I'm lazy to do Screnzy cause I'd have to dowload the scriptwriting programs.
