    A month and a half early, sure, but I figured I'd get the ball rolling on the annual EG NaNo thread. Any old hats doing it again this year? Any newcomers?

    I'll probably be doing it, but I'm also leading a real-world group in it too, so if I do manage to squeeze it in I doubt I'll break my 14 day finishing record from last year. But we shall see.

    This post'll be updated with entrants, novel info, etc etc as it gets closer to N-day.

    I'm still on the fence but my gut-feel is that I won't be doing it this year. The missus has a week off in November so she'll be mightily pissed if I spend the whole of it shut in the office, plus I haven't finished the edit of my NaNo 11 book nor the first draft of my Nano 12 one.

    It's a shame 'cos I do have a pretty good idea of what I want to do next. But it feels like I should take a year off and actually finish off the things I started, otherwise I'm going to end up with three unpublished novels sitting around doing nothing.

    Of course, I say that now.... but.... :)

    Won't be participating as I have no story I want to tell :(

    But, this thread is always excellent each year; love following the trials and tribulations of novel writing :)

    Dunno. She usually starts the thread, although my 40 pouring may be premature since gremmi shot his bolt early.

    Anyway, im going to give it a go this year, so if you are looking for punchy dialogue with lots of cock jokes, im your man.

    I'll be sure to critique your narrative crisis checkmarks and perspective technique whilst simultaneously comparing it to page 76 of Twilight.

    I fear my new found father-dom will get in the way of my participation this year. But you never know. I'll be around for feedback for sure though.

    To the untrained eye this thread looks like some bizarre dogging meet-up.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I'm in despite a backlog of things to reand and write as big as Olympus Mons on my desk.

    Come to think of it that is the best reason to be in. I got bogged down again. But with each year I inch closer to the finishing line.

    I have no idea what the fuck to write about this time. But that has never stopped anyone.

    And I am sure that MetalDog will join us.

    Maybe I'll write the novelisation of the Great British Bake-Off.

    Haha! I'm a maybe. I'm trying to do a redraft of a book in the written and want to write a script, but I'm travelling in November so might actually have time to do it all.

    Is anyone else getting a bit bored with remastered games? Read my thoughts!

    Can I propose Blerk is banned from the 2013 edition until he completes his 2012 draft. I've not been left hanging like that since *insert funny analogy later in the edit pass*

    I second Salaman's notion. Blerk you actually now have one month to finish your last story!

    I fell off the writing bike during the school holidays because I just couldn't get any time to myself. And then... I sort of haven't got back on. Feeling pretty bad about it, tbh. :(

    I've got like a chapter and a half left to do. I think I've got at least two chapters sitting there unpublished (although I seem to remember being quite unhappy with at least half of one of them).

    I'll take myself aside and give myself a good talking to later. :)

    I'm in!

    I was going to wait until Oct 1st to mention it, but I'm glad someone else started this thread since - thus far - no one who's started the new NaNo thread has managed to finish their yarn that year. Over to you to beat that curse, meme =)

    Absolutely no idea what I'm going to write though. I want a break from Sci-Fi, so probably fantasy, but that's all I have to go on at the moment.

    I have no idea what a 40 on the sidewalk means.

  • Deleted user 27 September 2013 21:32:44
    A 40 on the sidewalk is a US gang thing. You pour a large bottle of beer out onto the floor for your fallen brethren. Or something. Dawg.

    But yes! Excited to have you back again, MD. This year I'm going to be writing a story about a wine tasting festival. Clearly the most dynamite setting ever.
  • Deleted user 27 September 2013 23:15:23
    I'm tempted to join this year, i sort of half followed the last two on here, and always said next year i do it.

    Maybe.

    You 'maybe' chaps just need to down a beer or three on Friday Nov 1st, start writing and see what happens =)
