Preparing for NaNoWriMo! :D

Yep, I just created my account at NaNoWriMo. It's going to be my first time participating!
It seems like a pretty cool activity, so I thought I'd try my hand at writing a novel in a month!
I have an idea all planned out--thankfully. Now, to prepare to put everything onto paper...

Please, if you're a writer who has been scared of challenges like writing novels, join NaNoWriMo for this November; you'll feel accomplished if you do. I know I probably will. ^.^

I just joined too, my first year also =D I haven't decided on what to write yet though. Or well, I have a "backup-plot" if I don't come up with anything else/more awesome. ;P

Awesome! Was it overly hard and time-consuming?...

Thank you, love. :)

Actually, no. I just did.... 2500? words per night, and usually, you write more anyway and... just make sure you have a lot of plot. It's very systematic. Don't be afraid to throw in random backstories. And... yeah. Once, I was lazy and had 7 protagonists, and proceeded to tell their life stories... XDXD

I know you're going to kill me oh so slowly with a plastic spork for this, but could you give me your address again? ^x^; I have some New Jersey postcards I'd like to send to someone.

I'm doing NaNoWriMo for the first time this year. I'm so psyched.
:D
(And wondering how I'm going to actually finish it.)
