    I am definitely aiming for NaNo this year! Last year was the first year I "won," although I'm not sure it counts since it was a collab project with @Anomal(eee) totaling 100k instead of a solo 50k. Doing a solo novel this year and hoping it actually works instead of bogging down in the first week.

    i might use nano to break my three year streak of "exactly two fics a year, no more" heh. >>

    I am at this moment attempting to unfuck all of the notes I had crammed into an old weekly planner notebook so I can have them in the NaNo tag on my writing blog. It's technically something I've already started, but I'm not counting any existing words as part of the 50k. I love the project and just haven't made it a priority to write, so here's hoping NaNo will give me the kick in the pants I need to get it moving again.

    I have started writing a fic. I need a goal and a deadline or it will never actually get written. I guess I'm in for NaNo!

    I've spectacularly failed Nano every time I tried it, but hey I'm not doing anything else so this year I'm going to go for a half. 25 000 words. Not necessarily all the one fic, either.

  6. While I've never succeeded at NaNo, I've had a lot of fun getting part of the way there in the past, and I'm currently trying to make writing more of an established habit. Law school means I can't possibly make 50K, but as my partner is going to do the whole thing, I'm going to leech off her motivation and try my best to have a whole working outline of a project I've spent way too long sitting on!

    There's going to be a write-in in Chicago that takes place entirely on the el train in a couple weeks, which I think is going to be just hilarious amounts of fun :D

    My previous "attempts" at NaNo have been abject failures (as in, <1K). Imma try again! I've got an idea I like, and pretty much anything would be an improvement over last year, so why not?

    I did nano last year and since I kind of actually want to make it a Polished Novel I think I'm going to be editing for most of November

    I haven't won yet, and I keep trying too hard to write epic fantasy novel based in my long-term work building project despite it being very very piecemeal in a lot of ways.

    This year... I'm gonna try writing self-indulgent angsty Undertale fic. :p Much smaller worldbuild (haha) rife with things for me to reference, and I've been rping Papyrus for a year.

    I'm Frinn over there!

    I'm gonna continue my tradition of using NaNo to attempt fanfic with an actual ending instead of bitty character pieces :P Haven't won yet, but I've been getting closer every year!
