So who's gonna be insane with me this year? www.nanowrimo.org

The website can give more details, but essentially it's this:

Write a novel in a month.

...yes, I'm serious. laugh.gif Actually it doesn't have to be a full novel. The end goal is to lay down 50k words by the last day of November. Last year I managed 50k by about the third week and wound up with a total word count somewhere around 95k. It's insane, nobody will argue that, but it is *loads* of fun. Registration opened on Oct. 01, and you can register anywhere from now till the end of November (with the understanding that you didn't start until then...keep it fair, now).

I'm stocking up on my chocolate covered expresso beans as we speak!

..c'mon, it'll be fun! I'll be your writting buddy... tongue.gif

If I were creative and didn't already have several research papers to write already for classes I might join you all. Have lots of fun, though. I probably will join you in pulling all nighter, however . . . wacko.gif

Heh...well I remember college. And high school. It wasn't *that* long ago! But when you hear the screams and banging don't be alarmed. Unless of course you see flying furniture...then you might wanna duck. angel_not.gif

I don't think I'll be joining you folks. I've been working hard enough on the story I'm currently molding. Been working on it for a year now. It's far from finished and 9011 words. But then it has never been ment as a full length novel. Maybe if I got a government grant and quit my job in order to work on it...

I think this is a great idea! If I actually had time for such a thing....*time??? what's that???*....I might actually do something insane and join ya'll. Not that I have the talent or anything, but hey, you asked for nut cases. And boy do I qualify in that arena! But, alas, I am starting on another knitting phase - it's fall, and so I am in the mood to make handmade stuff and pretend I am really much more fabulous at it than I really am smile.gif Maybe next year.

Is there such a thing called free time? Maybe when I was a freshman, but definitely not now as a senior. I don't see it getting any better in the future, either. Maybe I should finally learn some time management skills . . .

By November Band will be over and I'll be desperate for something to do (next to what I'm supposed to do), so why not! Count me in! Not in english this semester so not like I have that much writing homework!

DRAGON BLESSING

May dragons bring you wealth
and guard your treasures
May they banish darkness and enlighten you
May female dragons grant you inner power
May the Dragon Queen
neutralize your enemies
May Dragon Spirits
give you power over Elementals
May weather dragons
bring rain at your request
May Ti'amat effect the changes you command
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
May Ishtar grant you Dragon Power
