Are any hubbers planning on participating in this year's National Novel Writing Month?
Nope. I would sooner spend 12 months writing a book and having a chance of publication at the end!
Otherwise, what a waste of a month! (assuming that NaNoWriMo is what I think it is?)
My husband and I both want to do it. It just a question of freeing up the time. I know couples who have done it together said it was a great experience. Umm. they each wrote their own novel. Although alternating pages could be fun!
Let me know if you do, Nelle. I'd love to read the end result(s). I wonder if PGrundy is doing it again... She was pretty big on this, if memory serves me correctly.
Hmmm, shades of Shelley. Think mine will be about a mad scientist who makes a living person out of cadaver parts. My "monster" will resemble Barack Obama.
Matt Cutts (of Google fame) apparently is doing it. I'm seriously considering doing it myself - sounds like fun even if what I write turns out to be crap!
I am considering doing it this year. I first heard about it two years ago, and at the time thought there was no way, but I am not nearly so slow at writing as I use to be. I am playing with some ideas right now, to see how much I can dream up in a short period of time, and how well I can know my characters before November gets here.
I gave it a quick thought last year but dismissed the idea, however this year I am seriously considering it. It would really help me get used to writing to a deadline. Many authors have also gained publication through it, which is a good insentive. Anyone else?
plus some of these posters are
Thanks for the thread link, will hop over and have a read.
meh, its not long, just figured we could maybe combine stuff.
Oh yeah This year I'm ML for the new Lake County Region in Florida this will be my 5th year and I've won all 4 years previous. Published 3 of my novels. Yup, love NaNoWriMo
Hi bbutterfly...see you at the NaNo starting line,
@ Elise--IMPRESSIVE! Congratulations.
I've done NaNoWriMo every year for the last nine years and 'won' ... but this year I'm doing the 30-day HubChallenge instead.
OK, you need to give us all some tips! I'm sure you can do both at once...fiction for NaNoWriMo and non-fiction for the hubs ;-)
I haven't decided. I want to, but think I'd need to take the month off of work. I may give it a go. I could use the productivity bump.
Naw Don't believe it for a second. Just take an idea and write, write, write...even if it doesn't seem to make any sense in the beginning.
You don't really need to be 'good enough' to do it. You just need to be willing to devote the time. Of course, if you're a slow typist it will take even more time... but I just mean, you could do it if you really wanted to!
I am insane.
I am working part time.
I am going to school full time
I am doing NaNoWriMo.
Kill me now.
That's wonderful. I'd be glad to accomodate you, however, I'm going to be too busy writing for NaNo.
Good luck to you - take a great big 'GULP' and move forward 5 spaces,
Nah... you're doing a fine job of it yourself!
The only good thing I can see there is that you didn't include something like, "I have five kids under the age of ten." Then I'd be rolling my eyes and really feeling sorry for you.
Now I wonder if you're going to write back and say you DO have five kids under age ten!
I just created a NanoWriMo group on Facebook if anyone is interested in joining:

My partner has been writing a book for the past few months. I think when writers want to write, they just go for it. It's hard to bottle all that inspiration up and release it just for a month of November. experienced writers will do their own thing. New writers will find it encouraging, and it's nice to feel part of a society of like-minded people. I think Hub Pages has everything a writer could ever want right here. We are a community. And Hubs have many some bonuses too.
I'm doing it, but I'm sorta procrastinating right now, which is bad.
I joined up last night and started writing my novel for NanoWriMo. I know I'm a little late but I;m still going to give it a go. If anyone else is doing it you can add me as a buddy on the site if you like, I also wrote a hub about it.

by Tanya Jones 4 years ago
I've done it 4 times, completed it 3- it's a lot of fun and an excellent challenge. Proved to myself that I can get the wordcount if I just get out of my own way! I haven't yet decided if I'm doing it this year since I haven't written anything here or on my blog in too long and should get...

Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? Are you participating?The silly sounding acronym is short for National Novel Writing Month. It's a commitment to write 50,000 words in November.As I write this, it's Nov. 2, so that requires writing about 1800 words a day. It isn't a contest per se, just a...
