    Yeah, my webhoster decided they'd randomly migrate my package to a new server. So now I've got to wait for the DNS to sort itself out. Doesn't matter at the moment though, it's only a blank default Wordpress site.

    EDIT: Nano username is Grapesy

    Added you guys.
    If memory serves the buddy system is a strange one-way beastie, so you'll need to add everyone yourself to see everyone, even if they added you already. I think that's how it works anyway.

    Had a quick look at the site earlier, and it's still got all my details / book info etc from last year. Any idea if you need to re-register, or just edit all that stuff?

    I think a fair chunk of it gets auto-wiped come the time.

    I'll actually write something worthwhile when I find out whether I still have a job or not after tomorrow. It's a little distracting :)

    Life has a habit of throwing shit. Good luck, Aargh - either in keeping it or getting a mind-bogglingly generous severance package.

    While I'm here, I thought other people might find this useful if, like me, they have the memory of a goldfish on smack:
    Body outline
    I print 'em out, two to a sheet of A4, slap character names next to them and use them to chart injuries as I go, so that I don't forget Fred lost an ear in chapter seven and Jane's eyes have been pecked out by crows.

    I am in. I registered on the site as GullyFoyle. Creatively titled blog here. I'm not sure I will update the blog yet, but it's there in case I do want to.

    I assume it's normally twenty-five days of procrastination followed by five days with little sleep?

    So, apart from the handful of us that I know about from last year, do any of you guys and girls have any previous with NaNoWriMo?

    Or indeed any kind of '+10k words' writing at all?

    I've never done NaNo before, although I've been writing for a few years so I've done the write 20-30k in a month. 50k looks like a bit of a mountain though.

    Ok, my writing buddy list is up to date.

    Looks like MD is right. 'Your buddies' does not equate to 'is a buddy of', so it's two separate things.

    The NaNo site is promising to get relaunched on the 10th. Do old accounts get retained or do you need to fully register again?

    I was just thinking, I know a fair few people who plan on using twitter to encourage, discuss and generally try and make the experience as nice as possible. I'm a part of another online writing group who will be using twitter as a sort of motivational tool.

    If anyone on here has a twitter account, and wants to add me, my twitter account is:

    Rhythm - I'm pretty sure they'll keep everyone's details.
    Way to piss 200,000 people!
    'Hey everyone! Come and crash our servers by all re-registering at once!'

    Last year I found the nano thread enough of a distraction to writing. Good luck with Twitter =D

    Heh, Twitter's a constant distraction for me anyway.

    Bigger issue is that November's such a busy gaming month, I'm away for a week in November and I'll be celebrating my 35th birthday :-/

    Well, I've signed up too. Despite not 'finishing' anything in ages.

    If anyone feels the need for more writing buddies then feel free to add me. I am (perhaps unsuprisingly) 'Blerk'. And I have no idea what I'm going to write. Ha.

    Ack will sign up when I get home!





    (and mail off my mixtape. But that's another thread......)

    Everyone knows Jack Thompson - but how did he become the game-blaming activist he is today? Read Part One of my new mini-series!

    The most I've written before was 6,900 words, and that was a few months ago for Machine of Death, so this will be a challenge. I will add people as buddies closer to the time.

    Thanks. All is good (for now at least :p).

    My writing shall begin in earnest tomorrow and I have several hours blocked out at the weekend to make a good start on it.

    I've written around 10,000 words on a thesis before and I write quite a bit at work now so all I need is to sort out the ideas so I don't get...crushed by them.

    Well, for the first time in about 3 or 4 years I now have a proper writing 'area' setup. I haven't had any desk areas for ages due to space issues, and I find it ridiculously difficult to write on a laptop in a cramped area. But now I have an entire study to call my own. Whee!

    It doesn't kick off until Nov 1st, Aargh =)
    You've got the better part of a month to sort your notes out before the whistle blows.

    I have an obscene amount of notes this year, it's really unlike me. I wonder how much will just get thrown out of the window two days in...

    @meme - you realise that statement means you have fewer excuses than most of us? =D
