    These sites have good stuff for both. (Kinda addictive.)

    I've succeeded in doing it once. I'm trying again this year.

    Go sign up when you're ready. Details can be found at http://www.nanowrimo.org.
    I was definitely going to do it this year, even made an account with the site. If it were for my impending move, i would have. Oh well, next year for sure.

    I punked out, I'm afraid. I think it was a combination of work pressures, disinterest in the story and characters, the end of the last game I was in and the departure of my old GM, ideas for the campaign I'd like to run Real Soon now, a *different* story popping into my head (partly stemming from campaign ideas) ... the usual excuses.

    Not this year. Lost steam at 35,000 words, and when I got the "we need money" to keep NaNo going next year email then I stopped. Still, I had fun with the story. I've introduced some of the characters into my game.

    I'll make 2009 the big year. Actually, my plan will be to write one book a month(300 pages a month or 10 a day, which is do-able) beginning January. Yep, going to move it up my list of hobbies. I take a free-hand approach which encourages imagination. I just sit and see the fingers tap the keyboard. Immensily rewarding in that even i dont know where the story will go or how it'll end.
