It's that time of year again, when aspiring writers can sit down at their word processors and pound out 50,000 words in 30 days.

The point is to write the first draft of a story. Not edit. Not make coherent sense. Not proofread. Not even to complete a novel. Just write.

Even if you fall short of 50,000 words in 30 days, at least you can be proud you've written something. And that's often all the encouragement some authors need to keep going.

For more information, The NaNoWriMo website.

Hey CyberCorn, what's your username on NaNoWriMo? I'm certainly interested in seeing how you progress through the month.

I'd also love to hear from anyone else attempting it this year. Good luck to all!

Hopefully, I'll have better luck this year than I did the previous two years. Though I made it in '04, I fell behind in '05 and '06.

I've heard similar stories from friends. I think 2004 was the last - and first - time I attempted it, but mine died off very quickly. This time, I have an actual story I'm prepared to write, so I'm hoping to make it to 50,000 as well, if not longer.

My username, if you or anyone's curious, is TheJinx.

Feh, even if you can't realistically make it to 50,000, who says you can't set aside half an hour or so an evening and just let go?

It would take me about half and hour just to get my brain in gear for that mode.

Too bad programming websites doesn't qualify or Bad Karma would have it in the bag.
