I'll be doing the November Nanowrimo this year. Been working on ideas for book 2 of my series. Hope to pound a lot of it out in November. This is the second time I'm doing Nanowrimo. First time I hit 25,000 words in a month. Some of my best writing happened during this competition.

I would love to do the November one this year. I've participated a little a few years ago, but didn't get much done. Health issues often stand in the way, but I am hopeful this year will be different!

I've been thinking about doing it this year, as of 2017. But... I'm not entirely sure if I should.

I decided about a week ago that this year, I'll be joining the hunt for the 50K words! I'm crossing my fingers for you and I'll be sending you all some good vibes from the keyboard.

I will most likely do it this year, as I have the last two years.

I'm going to give it a shot this year. I never know how much time I'll have to write with a one-year-old running around but others have done it, so why not me?

I'll do it this year, and, hopefully, be successful at it.

I have done camp nanowrimo twice now (only hit my goal once- I guess trying to write during exam season wasn't the best idea!) but I want to try the November one. I do have a story that I have been working on (and by working on I mean I have about 200 words and some brief chapter summaries) so I am going to try and get my first draft for that finished.

I was looking to do Nanowrimo this year but I've got so much on at the moment, it's just not possible. Shame really, as I enjoyed it loads that year. Oh well. I suppose there's always next year! :D

I plan to do it! There is a small bookstore in my town that opens up a few evenings in November for writers to come in and participate there. I've never done that, so I'm looking forward to walking into town and doing some of my writing in my favorite store!

Is this also open to readers outside the US? Would like to have a go!

Last year was my first NaNoWriMo. Started pretty late and I think I was a little out of my league with the setting I chose but it was a great experience and I've got a whole new community to work with on writing!

I've done 2 NaNo's so far, haven't finished either time because I have so much school stuff at the same time, but I try! The summer camps are far more productive for me.
