I am doing NaNo too! Hoping this will finally be the year I crack 50k! I've always self-edited too much but I am doing much better int hat regard and I am so excited about my story this time around.

I am ccterhune on NaNoWriMo, story is "Nine Fingers and the Ruiner".
Feel free to add me! I don't have many writing buddies and can't make it to meet ups since I have a 1 year old and baby on the way.

Good luck to everyone!!

Me too! A month of paper plate dishes and couch indentations. Never done it before, so it is a new experience. So far it is super hard, but slogging along all the same. Best of luck to everyone!

I'm just at 5000 now - need to update my word count but think I'll wait until the end of the day... who knows how far I'll get. I had to re-write an entire scene already. I really am trying to also dial back the editing but sometimes I just can't move on until I fix what I know is horribly wrong. LOL.

Good luck all!

Just passed 8500. Been opening a new doc for each scene, saving and printing when I'm done and putting it away in a binder, to keep from falling into editing. Just wanna get these words down!

I am. I've massively failed NANOWRIMO each year I've attempted it, so I'm not too worried. Plus, I have to move on to the next round for it to matter.

4 days in and I'm still on pace, though. Probably my best ever start!

Hey even if I don't make the 50,000 goal - I've already done better than I have in previous years. I'm really not stressing about being behind (which I totally am) or procrastinating by writing other things, or scrolling through facebook, or perusing crits on Scrib... eh. Whatever. I'm writing, and isn't that really the point of it when it all comes down to it? I mean it's only day 6 so really anything can still happen.
