If you're not already doing it, it's not too late to consider getting involved in National Novel Writing Month. It's an event that lasts until Nov. 30, and the goal is to write a 50,000-word novel before deadline.

I'm using this as motivation to work on an OtherSpace novel. My NaNoWriMo profile can be found at http://www.nanowrimo.org/userinfo.php?uid=66824

Sign yourself up at their website home page!

If you give it a try, be sure to post here with a link. Shared encouragement might benefit everyone who participates!

Just an update: I've hit the 7,000 word mark in the OtherSpace novel at NaNoWriMo - so, I'm on track to finish the novel within 10 days.

Any chance on your novel being published online for free? (I can hope can't I )

I'm pretending to be in NanoWriMo so I get other stuff done. Since saying I'll participate I've studied a LOT more and written a short story among other stuff

Heh! Well, I'm going to try to get an agent for the thing, actually. Be sure to post your NaNoWriMO link so we can keep track!

I think I've got an idea to write about. Only problem is, I'm not sure if I could write about one of my characters.

Just crossed the 15,000-word mark! Hoping to make it to the halfway point tomorrow at the latest.

Eh, don't mind me; just a bit envious, is all.

20,000 words and climbing. I'm hoping to hit the 25,000 mark - halfway to the goal - tonight!

Oh, well good luck and let us know how that goes.

I'll post my NanoWriMo link the second I start my story (on the upside I've been getting a lot of other stuff done )

I've only got slightly over 3,000 words so far - although I'm mostly attributing that to the fact that my teachers get ticked when I try and write throughout the whole class instead of just when I'm done my work.

25,000 words and climbing. Mostly, I'm not doing much else but the novel. I'm giving rather cursory attention to the games until this is finished.

Also, I'm fighting a cold - so, drinking lots of fluids, chicken soup and Comtrex.

Yum!

I have just under 79,000 words, however it is not a novel, it is a compilation of all my works since high school. It has 202 pages of fun.

Well I got several pages done so far...

Here's a sample:
All work and no play makes Tyche a dull boy. All work and no play makes Tyche a dull boy.All work and no play makes Tyche a dull boy.All work and no play makes Tyche a dull boy.All work and no play makes Tyche a dull boy.All work and no play makes Tyche a dull boy.All work and no play makes Tyche a dull boy.

It's a pretty good start.

Just passed 40,000 words tonight. I'm taking the rest of the night off to work on a freelance writing project. Whee.

(And, Tyche, keep up the excellent work. But stay out of the boiler room!

Just passed the 45,000-word mark in the National Novel Writing Month contest. I should easily hit 50,000 - the minimum to succeed in the contest - tomorrow!

50,015 words - the finish line's been crossed, but I've still got momentum. The story won't be done for another 5,000 words or so. WHEE!
