As you may have heard, I'm going to take part in NaNoWriMo this year. I'm very excited, but the closer it gets to the kickoff date, the more things I realize... like not being able to do any betaing whatsoever.

If you are one of the people whom I semi-regularly beta for, I'm going to have to decline next month. I've contacted most of my regulars, but I wanted to say it here, too, just in case. I hope it doesn't cause anyone a ton of inconvenience. :(

Thanks for all of the support you've given me so far!

That's ok, sweetie. You could probably use a break from betaing any way. If you so desire, you can pass some people my way because it has been a good long while since I betaed a thing.

Alrighty - if I hear of anyone in your fandoms, I'll definitely do that!

*hugs back*

You are getting nervous too?
That's good because I think I forgot totally everything I want to write about.... like the names of the person, the plot, the reason why I want to write that story....

I'm sure the NaNoWriMo thing is fun but I'm not so sure that I'm laughing

Well, according to the founder, that might be a good thing! Jumping in with less planning can sometimes lead to greater creativity. I worry that I've overplanned...

Ahhh NaNo. This is my sixth glorious year. I think. It might be the seventh?

How do I find you? (Or you could friend me via the link up there, and then I'll reciprocate.)

Added! You can go to your Writing Buddies list, click on my username, and add me as a buddy now.

Fortunately we both used the same username as we use for LJ. ;)

Thanks! I'm trying to finish a five-book novel. ;__; I've done two other books the past two years of NaNo. I want to finish so I can do a new project!

It keeps creeping closer and closer without our noticing, doesn't it? I just realized yesterday that it's only three Saturdays away.

I need to start preparing (in a very general way)! :)

It is soooo close now, isn't it? I was re-reminded of how close when I saw that a Facebook friend had joined the SF Nano Writers group. (You could too, I suppose!)

I just found a kickoff party for Nov. 1st in my area. I sure hope I can go!

I understand. If I finish chapter 3 in November, I'll still send you the Edit Email, and you can edit whenever you're ready. (Or when November's over.)

Great - I'll just keep in my "To Do" folder until then. :)

Woohoo!! Go on and kick some NaNo... Wait.

You can't... what?

For... the whole month?

*hyperventilates* What if I need something beta'd in October? Can you still do that? Will that be okay? Ack! I'm already going into beta withdrawal!! *fetal position*

:)

*hands you a paper bag* Calm down, there, Julia...

October is fine. :) Just can't do it in November. Then I'll be all set to come back! :)

*breathes slowly* Okay. Good. Whew.

Still might have to resume the fetal position next month, tho. :)

But I can't wait to see you kick some NaNo patootie! :D
