NaNoWriMo Diary #3

with one comment

Triangular Orange Sign: Caution: Novelists at WorkHa. Well, I’m caught up again, and what I SHOULD be doing is writing my face off to get ahead of the game.

Way ahead, its already day NINE.

And I’m merely… caught up.

So naturally, I’m reading and writing posts in the forum.

And of course, here I am… well, ahem, putting together yet another NaNoWriMo blog post.

There are a heap of folks who have joined the Identi.ca NaNoWriMo group, and many more are subscribed to the NaNoWriMo Twitter feed. And of course you can use the #nano or #NaNoWriMo hashtags

Some NaNoWriMo Blogs

Writers have this weird habit of not only writing, but writing about writing. Wierd, eh?

NaNoWriMo Crest: November

For an into to NaNoWriMo and insight into some of the challenges faced by a student taking on the challenge, you’ll want to check out: Nessies Crazy Rambles: NaNoWriMo!!

NaNoWriMo Crest: November

Wow… I’m going to have to come back and read this one all the way through after November. It looks to be an excellent blog that’s sharing both the NaNoWriMo journey and the WIP: Writing In Your Dirtiest Pants

NaNoWriMo Crest: November

My Identi.ca friend @Zotz is not only blogging his NaNoWriMo novel trying to round up a musical score & get it recorded to complement his novel, and it’ll all be under a CC by-sa license: Baldy – A Bahamian Shaggy Dog Story,

NaNoWriMo Crest: November

My Twitter friend @Danisidhe is giving NaNoWriMo a go this year in addition to running her wonderful Twitter #Storycraft live chat that I’ve *sniff* had to miss a lot recently!‽! Check out Do you NaNoWriMo?

And, well, my husband has been beset with work stuff, so although he’s written some words, he’s resigned to not making the NaNoWriMo 50,000k, yet determined to have fun within it anyway. And of course although our son has signed up too, and is giving every indication of participating in NaNoWriMo, if anything he’s even more reticent about actually saying anything about it to either parental unit.

writing buddies

If you’re a NaNoWriMo writer and want to be my writing buddy, this is the direct link to me on the NaNoWriMo page. I’ll buddy you back if you like, but you’ll need to email me at laurel.l@russwurm.org or send me nanomail dent me or tweet me your link info

So, almost done here… to make matters worse, I am actually seriously considering popping out to a NaNoWriMo “non-Kickoff, non-Halfway, non-TGIO Social EventTM!” where there will be socializing and a *cake tour*

Like >I< need cake! Part of my reason for loving NaNo is that it’s a perfect excuse to not have to have cake for my birthday. Or a birthday for that matter😀

From @NaNoWriMo: 2010 Tally:
197,110 authors have written a cumulative total of 914,221,952 words so far

And the Canadian Stats say:
we’ve written 2,148,045 NaNoWriMo words to date! Woo hoo!

  1. Hi Laurel, We’ve missed you, too! I can’t imagine being a two-nano household!
    It was great to get your direct link – I’ve added you, now, too. Pity there’s no alert or “buddy request” that happens automatically – would be easier to find people!

    Happy Writing!
