  1. I think we have officially given up on the cabin thing...
    However, we (Caged Maiden And I) Have set up a facebook group for everyone to join in on. :) It will be like one giant cabin! :D

    Just click the link and request to be allowed in. It is closed to help protect your privacy and work.

    Sounds really great! I've taken a pretty big break from writing but i'm really looking forward to jumping back in. My nano name is Fluffypoodel as well, the novel is Horizon's Edge.

    Great, so we can use nano user id's to send private messages and check out our friends' works, and we can speak publicly on the facebook group page. If anyone doesn't use facebook, but still wants to participate in the group, Lotus and I can link things back to this thread, so facebook haters ( ;) ) aren't left out in the cold. I'd like to make this as fun a month as possible and we've got some great things planned, including a plot workshop, a couple friendly competitions, informational links to writer resources, and more. Please feel free to share the information with your other writer friends, from outside MS. The facebook group is only private to keep it serious and friendly and positive. Lotus will kick trolls out with her size 5 1/2 combat boot faster than I can say, "Uh oh, boy, better run."

    Okay, so let's have a productive month and make new friends. I'm super excited to begin!

    Hey! NaNo is coming up fast! I'm super excited even though I'm completely unprepared and have two midterms the first week of NaNo (curse you, college! One of them is even for a writing class ... )

    I need to go through the thread and add you all. Haven't got a facebook ... but I'm considering setting up an account for writing online people? I don't know. Hopefully this thread will be super active during, though chat during NaNo is the best! NaNo is seriously my favorite thing, it's so much fun. I love the craziness. 30 hrs to go until NaNo starts for me. I hope I can make it to at least 20k words this time.
     
  9. There is still time we have a FB group of 30 and growing :)
    I cannot tell you how excited I am for this year's Nano. The FB group is really going to help set it off for me.
    I'm competitive, so the competitions we have planned will help prevent me from being a lazy slug. ;)
     
  10. You don't have facebook? :eek2::eek2:
    We are going to miss you love. We will be updating this thread as well though out the month.

    I just sent a request to join. I've been wanting to do NaNoWriMo for a few years, so I decided to just go ahead and join. I'll be hand writing mine, though.

    I started already since it's November 1st officially here now. I got 790 words in on my midnight burst. I'll plug away at it more when I wake up.

    I have the dubious distinction of acquiring a Facebook page by accident. Daughter sent me a picture years ago; to access the dratted thing I had to keep filling out E-Forms, and at the end of it, I was told I had a Facebook page with the picture as my avatar. I check it fairly often, though I seldom respond.

    Daughter, on the other hand uses Facebook for dang near everything.

    Greetings, all! I'm a longtime writer, but this is both my first post on this cools forum for fantasy authors, and my first participation in NaNoWriMo. ("grailnorthwest" is my Nano name.) It falls perfectly for me, as I've been outlining my novel for a while now, and am eager eager to get a move on.

    Don't know anyone here and not sure how your cabins work, but I'll poke around a bit more.

    Same here. I had it deactivated forever and just turned it back on just in time for this. :)
