Write something you miserable...

So, I like the idea of NaNoWriMo, but seriously, it freaks me the hell out to even consider promising to TRY writing 50,000 in a month.

It's the same thing that keeps me from signing up for Big Bangs - 45,000 words? Yikes! I feel like I've never be able to hit that goal.

sp23 said she was siging up for wrisomifu, and then I saw fenchurche, alizarin_nyc and perletwo all jumped on the bandwagon too. Seeing that the requirements are simply that I must a) commit to writing for at least ten minutes each day for the entire month of November, and b) complain bitterly about every single word, this is a community I can get behind. Excellent.

*jumps into pool of misery*

How ridonkulous is it that my son is NaNo'ing but I am not. I've finished 3 times successfully but don't dare commit this year. Wanna keep him company? http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/682060

I'm not even going to *try* nano'ing. I'm just WriSo'ing since that's about all I can manage.

Good luck to him though!

It is an awesome idea. If I write 10 words, they are mine mine mine and I don't have to feel guilty about the other 1600 or so that I didn't manage to write that day. whoo!

YOU CAN DO EEEEET!

Yis. You can. Drabbles count.

Also, don't forget to bitch and moan, that is an important part of the process.

Look, I'm pleased with myself when I can finish a song a month. I'm freakin' ECSTATIC that I've managed to do two of them since Sunday. 50,000 words? *koff koff*

That works out to 1667 words a day. That's more than I can write in ten minutes. :-)

Yeah, 'xactly. 1667 words in a week is good for me.

Okay, sometimes I can manage that in a day, but I can't churn it out every day for a month. My brain, it will fry like a bug in a zapper. BZZZT! Not pretty and also, it smells bad when that happens.

I've signed up for Hewligan big bang, for my very first SGA story. Eeep! I'd love to do wrisomifu next year. It sounds like something right up my alley :)

YEAH HEWLIGAN!

Have fun with that - I never write that stuff, but I love to read it it, because every character DH plays can be matched with any character JF plays. And it should be done over and over again in endless combination.

I'm not being very adventurous in my pairing. I'm in the middle of another story, RL's very hectic and I don't have time to watch their other roles. So, I'm sticking to McShep ;)

I totally agree with you about Hewligan, I've read so many wonderful stories!
