    It's NaNoWriMo! Or National Novel Writing Month if that's what you prefer to call it. I'm not much of a writer myself, but I know plenty of people who participate! Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? What's your personal goal?

    I would like to, but due to the fact that I am writing a thesis atm, I don't think it is a good idea. I will be putting my schoolwork before a challenge like that.

    Probably next year, with a story that I plot far in advance, instead of the thing I am still plotting now as well. Hopefully, by then, I can just write 50k words in the month, I don't think I can keep a chapter story to only 50k words though

    I'd like to participate but I'm also extremely slow with writing anything atm so it wouldn't be realistic of me to get 50k words in a month.

    I'm doing it! This will be my fourth year, though only my second trying for 50k. I've got a significantly larger workload than I did last year, but I'm optimistic about it!

    I don't intend to participate this year. No story ideas, no way to continue my writing on the go, no motivation, and just simply having other things to do anyway. The only way I would work on a novel this month is if I continue one of the past stories I started for NaNoWriMo one year.

    I've never even heard of this thing before, but it sounds like just the thing I need to motivate myself to actually start writing my original story. I don't want to just put all my fanfiction on hold though...huh.

    Okay, I think my goal will be 20k. Here's hoping I actually meet it, and even if I don't, at least I'll (probably) have finally started writing my story.

    This is the first year that I'm trying NaNoWriMo for real. I've even made a little chart with word goals and everything. I'm a little stressed since it seems like this is going to be a busy month, but I'm giving it my all. Current goal is 50,000 words, but I have a feeling the book I'm writing is longer than that. Still, it's a start and I really just need to get words down.

    Absolutely not, thanks to student life. I also don’t completely believe in NaNoWriMo because I prefer quality over quanitity. It seems much better to me to focus on a smaller writing goal while trying to make it as well-crafted as possible, as opposed to cranking out 50K words.
