Look at the thing! It’s a thing!

Look over there! The thing! On the sidebar!

Yeah. I’m trying NaNoWriMo. Again. This time I’m breaking the rules and going for a books on an existing project. My book, tentatively titled Ghost Train to New Orleans (sequel to The Shambling Guide to New York City), is 8k in, and I am using NaNoWriMo in hopes to get to 60k. My wordcount there at the right is the honest NaNo count, starting with the words I wrote today. I’m cheating in that the project is started, but I am NOT considering I have an 8k word start. I donated to NaNoWriMo, got my donor halo, and I’m off and running.

Who’s with me?

  1. I’m with you!

    I’m also writing on a project that was already started, but am not counting the words that were written before the day.

  2. I’m in for my first year, going strong so far (yeah, the whole 1 day … )!

    I’m with you too! Same deal; started with a few thousand words that don’t count. Hopefully going to end above 60K+

    ..and by the way, I just discovered ISBW and really dig it!

  4. I’m in and going strong with a novel project that I have intentionally held until November. The delay allowed me to create one hella-detailed outline. I took Nov. 1st off work to get a head start and I’m past 10k now.

    I’d never be that far if someone hadn’t told me (repeatedly) that I’m allowed to suck. Thanks Mur.
