Review emergency procedures.
Gather the chocolate.
Shun the homework.
Assume starting positions.
Rant, vent, praise yourself, brag about word count, moan about word count, demand ideas, plot bunnies, et cetera. Also if you want to leave your nanoname so we can all be a happy circle of nanofriends feel free to do so. (I'm callitthisland. Add me. Get the reference and gain three awesomepoints.)
(I know we have a planning thread. BUT THE TIME FOR PLANNING IS OVER.)
(Holy shit I'm not ready for this.)
Make sure to buy extra chocolate.10/31/2011 #1

Procrastination? -_-11/1/2011 #5
She's writing fanfictions.
Two of them. Unconnected. Hopefully, they'll giver her the 50k word count.
All she cares about is the word count. /nodnod/11/1/2011 #6
Hoping for 120k.
Trying not it cheat, but if all else fails, will fall back on gse and LATS, which ought to be long enough to give a winning wordcount, maybe.
Has a little bag of white-chocolate-covered espresso beans and a Do Not Disturb sign.
Is going to die.11/1/2011 #7
Is cheating, as well. Writing two fanfics, book one and two of a series. Estimated word count: 80k...will /not/ finish.
Wrote 700 words between midnight and 1 am last night. Not much, but it's a start.
Stocked up on half-price Halloween candy and Red Bull today.
Has the music set on SiriusXM's The Highway.
Arranged a routine: school, short nap, homework, NaNo, repeat.
It's going to be a looong month.11/1/2011 #8
Was up all last night because of softdrink after dinner, and wrote in excess in 3000 words. O.o
Parents don't know what I'm doing, friends think I'm crazy, lolly stash will be depleted rapidly.
This might end badly.11/1/2011 #9
I did my first four paragraphs in school today. Must. Finish. Two. Thousand. Words!11/1/2011 . Edited 11/1/2011 #10
Hm. Let's see.
It's day two here, and I've only written seven hundred words. *headdesks*
I blame school. The stupid thing had to end at eight freaking thirty on the first day on NaNoWriMo. -.-
Twenty-four chapters. (nod) My NaNo Novel will have twenty-four chapters.11/2/2011 #11
It's day two, and I haven't written a single thing. Because, you know, of course Tech Week starts the same day NaNo does. Of course it goes until eleven thirty at night. Of course there's no where to write my NaNo.
nyeh. I guess this means I've got a shitload to type on the weekend. I think I have how the beginning starts...
(I am oddly proud of my summary. Mainly the one in the brackets 'cause it's almost funny. *shock*)11/2/2011 . Edited 11/2/2011 #12
I changed perspective and restarted. it's much easier to write now.
Wish I'd done this yesterday.

I just got my runawaymarbles account back. Yay. Friend me?11/2/2011 #14
First NaNo fail.
Lost 600 words, bloody computer.
Most of it was written down in my notebook as well, though, so it's alright.11/2/2011 #15
blizzards of snow
Just had my science test, so got that out of the way.
Woo, 50 000 words to go.
At least I've figured out a beginning.11/2/2011 #16
Beginnings are good.
6k. Is it pathetic that most of my friends are way ahead of me? Gar.11/2/2011 #17
So I wrote 1700 words last night. I'm actually pretty proud - normally I'm just like 'screw it, I'll write later.' BUT I GOT IT DONE THIS TIME. :D11/3/2011 #18
I want to get to 10k tonight. I shall walk to Starbucks from school and get coffee and nano all night. Hopefully get 5k more that day. My goal for the weekend is 5k everyday.11/3/2011 #19
I'm only at 1,329 words.
3,152 so far I believe. -_- //is kinda procrastinating11/3/2011 #21
I'm right on my goal, but I still feel like I'm procrastinating. I can bump my word count goal up to 40,000 easily, but I just don't have enough plot to put the words into. :/ Grr. (I'm at 4k and my goal is 35k)11/3/2011 . Edited 11/3/2011 #22

I've been having an incredibly busy week. As in, several consecutive days of exams, a pile of homework, and a weekend without my laptop 3k words. /dies11/5/2011 #28

Can I die now or... ?
|Clockwork of Time
