Happy 1st of NaNo everyone!! I really want to thank everyone for participating in nanowarmup this year. But just because NaNoWriMo has started, doesn't mean the community has to go into hiding for the next 10 months. I will be posting my progress on my album and I encourage you to post progress on your novels, too. I will also be updating my NaNo profile (in case the link doesn't work, my username is diotrans). I figure, I have to do 10 songs this month, so 1 song is roughly equivalent to 5,000 words of a novel. So I will be updating my word count in increments of 5,000, even though I'm not submitting a novel at the end. If you want, post your NaNo profile here so we can all keep track of each other and keep each other moving .)
Another thing that helps is having timed-write races over AIM. I would not mind organizing a time to get together and make an AIM chat room, and do a few timed writes and compare word counts and all. It wouldn't really work for me to participate (writing music doesn't exactly have the same quantifiable output), but I could organize the freewrites if you were interested. So leave a comment with your screen name so I can look for you online, or let me know when would be a good time for freewrites for you. My screen name for noveling (and albuming) purposes is: dio writes.
Well, all that's left to do is write! Good luck everyone and thanks so much for participating!!
