    Okay, todays the day to begin JaNoWriMo. http://janno.ymakadomain.com/faq.shtml

    I will beginning a science fiction novel based on a game idea I had just recently. The universe is one of my own devising; a universe that would be considered a potential future of our world. With possible rare exceptions, all my Science Fiction books and games will develop and see print based off this possible/probable/potential future.

    The goal is 50,000 words in 31 days

    So who's with me?

    Thanks for bringing attention to this January writing festival, Thoth! I guess starting in January provides one more day than NaNoWriMo. How did NaNoWriMo go for you, by the way?

    Due to the Holidays, and some local government nonsense, I only got to about 40,000
    words with NaNoWriMo. In December, I went for the NaNoFiMo but only finished 20,000 words. Total words: Over 60,000, but missed my mark on both by 10,000 each. 2011 will be my year.

    Thanks for inquiring, Umiushi.

    I hadn't heard about NaNoFiMo. If you mentioned it in an earlier post, sorry; that one must have slipped me by. It's a great idea! I might participate in the pair this year.

    Actually, I added to the list, see above. Also, if you are in to science fiction, Star Trek specifically, check out this site. I was just accepted as a cadet and plan on sharing with everyone here on the pnpg boards my experiences. So far, looks to be an incredible experience.
