NaNoWriMo ?
 
I know it's probably a bit early to ask about this, but is anyone thinking of participating this year round? Last year I had a story planned and then I kind of forgot about it. This year I'm going to attempt to do it properly. Fueled by by rum, chainsmoking and retarded sleeping patterns.
Also, I hate to be pedantic, but shouldn't it be International Novel Writing Month ? Actually fuck that, I love being a pedant.

I've considered doing it but I haven't thought in detail about it yet.

I did it in 2010. Wrote 52,000 words before the deadline was up, but I find that it felt forced. I'd also lined up to write a story with a friend online but got stressed because I was only sleeping 3 hrs a night and trying to get the story out, while looking after a 1year old, and dealing with some heavy stuff personally was just too much.

In March I wrote 56,000 words in week - which flowed much easier, because there was a story in my head that had to come out onto paper.

So I'm not really that interested in doing it again, not unless I had a writing partner... then it would be more fun.

I suck at writing with a partner. The only thing I can write with a partner seems to be lyrics.

It's alright... I suck at writing lyrics :-D

I was a NaNoWriMo winner in 2007. It was an interesting experience but not that I would like to repeat. So it appeared the first and the last my participation in the competition.
