NaNoWriMo 2012

This is my official declaration that unless some major unforeseen circumstances occur, I'll be doing NaNoWriMo this year. I'm super excited about a YA science fiction story I'm ready to tackle. Last year (2011) was my first time, and it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I definitely wouldn't have finished without the support of my CP's, who all won too!



So this year, I want to add more people into my "writing buddies" circle. The more support the better. I'm nano-ing under the name ilimaktodd. If you are participating, let me know your username and once I figure out how to do it, I'll add you to my list of buddies. :)

What's on your I Really Want To Write This Story list?

I'm signed up too, still not sure if I'm actually participating but ... I think I am lol! My username is Kyra Lennon :D

Clare said...

Good luck with your YA science fiction, and congrats on your success last year.

I'm taking part this year, but rebelling by continuing my August Camp NaNo New Adult ParanormalRomance, Cupid.

I've added you as a buddy, my username is wandaXmaximoff.

After talking about it a lot, I finally signed up last night. I'm also planning a YA (which is new for me), and it will be fantasy/dystopian. Nothing like a challenge, eh?? My username is Nick Wilford. Look forward to seeing you! :)

Suzi said...

I hadn't planned on doing it, but I should look into it more. I want to start a new WIP and figured I'd start before then. Maybe I should wait. I'll see I guess. Still have time to decide.

Kathryn Purdie said...

I'm going to do it, of course, in my own cheater-like fashion. Still trying to decide if I should officially sign up, which I didn't do last year. What do you think?

jaybird said...

I'm not doing it, but I wish you nothing but the best of luck! I can't wait to hear more about the new YA Sci Fi story though.

Tobi Summers said...

I'm in! My username is Tobi Summers. I added you as a buddy. Good luck!

ilima said...

Kyra-Found you! I hope you decide to play. :)

Clare-Added you, too. I'm all for rebelling. Sounds like a fun book.

Nick-Can't find you on there. I'll try again later. And a YA fantasy/dystopian...that's right up my alley. :) Good luck!

Suzi-Yup, still time. It's kind of fun to be drafting with so many other writers at the same time.

Katie-I really think you should sign up. Seeing as how you wrote a bazillion more words than the rest of us last year, I don't think you'll have any problems.

Jaybird-Thanks so much!

Tobi-Added you, too. Good luck!

Emily R. King said...

I'll start revisions then. Does doing NaNo still count if I did it a month early? Probably not, huh? :)

Good for you for signing up!

Jenny S. Morris said...

I want to do this so bad. I have a shiny new contemp idea. But I just can't do it. Maybe next year.

Good luck!!!!

I'm not going to participate in NaNo "officially" but will unofficially be doing a lot of writing.

Teresa Coltrin@Journaling Woman said...

I wish I would do, but it's the committment thing. I'm sweating just thinking about the committment.

ilima said...

Emily-Just saw you wrote 50,000 words in two weeks. You are way beyond Nano, honey. NIce job. :)

Jenny-Blast those shiny new ideas. I have way too many!

Michael-That is officially what's most important. :)

Teresa-It's tough. That's why I need buddies to keep me on task. :)

Emily R. King said...

Thanks, Ilima! I think I might take November off from drafting. I'm kinda wiped out. Ha!

Elana Johnson said...

For now, I'm participating. But that's if I don't get edits/notes, and have to abandon my draft for a deadline.

I honestly cannot remember my username. Haha! What's yours, and I'll find you!

ilima said...

Emily-No kidding.

Elana-Ha! I found you on Nano. I hope you get to write, but edits are good too.

I'm partcipating under the name Alice Majella. I'm super excited! I'm writing fantasy this year.

Good luck with NaNo!

Rachel said...

I've been avoiding this for years, but I think I'll try it this year. You've convinced me!

My username is RachelMcClellan. Not sure how it works so you'll have to find me and teach me the ropes. :)

Suzi said...

Okay, you talked me into it. :) I keep seeing blog posts about it. And I'm at the perfect time to do it since I haven't started my WIP. I can hold off a few more weeks.

Look forward to seeing you there! I'm registered as suziretzlaff.

ilima said...

Nicole-Thanks!

Rachel-Yay! I added you as my buddy. So on your "My Nanowrimo" page, you'll see me on your "Writing Buddies" tab as people who've added you. You can add me too if you want and we'll be able to see each other's progress and cheer/support/motivate/cry. :)

Suzi-I couldn't find you. Try finding me at ilimaktodd, or I'll try again later. So excited you're signing up!

ilima said...

Robin-Yay! Cute book cover, btw.
