I'm going to a NaNoWriMo official start party tonight. So that means at midnight PST <start smack talk> I'm going to be beating the pants out of the rest of you NaNo types. We're also wearing our Halloween costumes, as if we weren't freaky enough.
My user name is the same on NaNo as here if any of you want to be my writing buddies.
ertertwert - I sent you a message, but the site is crashing (from all the excited writers), so I don't know if it actually went through or not.
This is my 3rd year doing this. I also did it 2007 (failed) & 2008 (won!). I have a list of potential names, a fuzzy vague idea of where my character will start...and that's ALL I got. I write by the seat of my pants.
