Yes, I'm late with this, I know. I suck.

For those of you participating in NaNoWriMo this year, I'm sure you've already got a ton of community support (which is probably one of the best things about NaNo), but I thought we should add something in here.

So, if you would like to talk about your NaNo project, holler about word counts and stress, or you have any handy resources or tips to share, comment away, and we can add things to this post over the course of the month.

Think of it as a collaborative, community-driven effort. ;-)

Also, I don't do NaNo, so I don't really know what's going to be most beneficial for y'all unless you tell me. *cough*

Things are going well for me, I have a ton of words (about 25K but I am doing two different projects and counting words that I don't write for either project along with that.) I'm a day or two ahead on NaNo and I am also ahead in Ni90 which is nice because, for a couple of days there, I thought I would be getting sick. it doesn't seem o be happening though.

I am being horribly antisocial though, I admit that. I think this is the first thing I have replied to on my rlist since Tuesday. *laughs*.

I have about 14k (new) words towards my NaNo project - more towards the piece of writing in general, but I'm not submitting that which I've written before this month towards it. Really excited; I'm working on the first novel in my series, which I neglected to write despite enthusiastically pumping out prose on the other six volumes. I haven't written linearly or with a solid objective in ages, and it's proving a fun challenge.

I'm with whatawaytoburn, though; it's turning me into a sleepless recluse. Almost was late for work today because I just *had* to finish a certain paragraph. Hah.

My Nano is not going so well. I have about 5k on it. I've had my girlfriend and her girlfriend here the last few days so I haven't had much time to write, and it doesn't help that I'm having trouble getting immersed in the story. I really don't know why, but I feel distant from the characters. :-\
