NaNo, Day 1


1703 / 50000 words. 3% done!

ETA: Officially passed 1,667! Yay!

I went to a kickoff party in Dayton, and it was fun! There were about 13 of us, most typing away. I had to leave early, though, before the actual "party" began. :(

I'm thinking to avoid spamming your f-lists each day I should have a NaNo filter? Not sure.

3%... for Day One? Sounds like a lot. Nice to know you had a good start :D

I had a lie in after sleeping 10 hours. That was my party.

I'll spam you if you spam me. :P

Eh, it's okay. I still want to crank out another 200+ words, then I'll feel accomplished! :)

How much did you get done?

I'd like to be on your NaNo filter if you make one (I'm probably going to make one myself). I'm already envious of your word count...must get back to typing! XD

You've been added! And good luck - how much do you have so far?

If you have a filter, I'd love to see it. 3% is awesome for Day 1. Go you!

I think that's a good start! You're just barely 200 words short of the goal! *hugs*

Good luck this year! :D

I hope I can break it before going to bed! It's nothing like your total, though. *impressed*

Woohoo, good for you!! I hit my supergoal for the day and I'm now reaching for twice the supergoal. *glee* I love these first days of NaNo before the fatigue sets in!

If you make a filter, I want on it!

You are on it!

The writing today went really slow... hopefully the fatigue won't slow it to a stop!

WOW! You are off to a great start!!! Me? I can't even figure out how to start the darn thing!! LOL Oh well even if I don't make it to 50,000 words, as long as I start it, I will win. This book that I'm about to start will one day be published -- I hope. It's not fanfiction.

You can't figure out how to sign up, you mean? Or something else?

Mine's original, too! Yay for that!

In order to add you to the filter, I'll have to re-add you to my friends list - I did a big cut last month and removed everyone who didn't comment that they wanted to stay. :)

Awesome start, hon! :D

I'm only just over 300 words on my own NaNo inspired fic binge, but that's about to change. ^_~

Your challenge looks like a doozy! I wish you lots of luck! :)

If you filter, make sure I'm there. :)

Me, I just spam the list. It's all anyone is likely to get from me this month (besides random memes that I will sometimes use to procrastinate *g*) so I figure it can't hurt too much. :)

Excellent word count. I stopped at 1771 for today, but I have tomorrow afternoon and all of Monday to try to build up some kind of word count buffer against the month to come. :)

And the "No Plot, No Problem" book is fantastic, isn;t it? I got it and the novel-writing kit the first year and I've used them every year since. :)

Also, I'm addicted to smileys tonight for some reason. :)

Oh, you're on it already! :)

And good job on your word count! I hope I can keep up the pace...

I definitely found the book to be inspiring! Hopefully I can continue to keep the inner editor at bay. :)

:) (Just for you)

OMG!
My f-list ist totally kicking me! I have pages of pages of pages of nano writers... It's totally crazy!
I think I will miss all of my "normal" friends in lj ;-)

(and every nano has written more than me! *pouts*

Aw... *pats* You can do it! Just keep trying, and don't give up. *hugs*

If it's to be a filter for your nano updates, please let me in on it, I'd love to see how you're getting on each day.

Also, sooper well done for your first day! :)
htbthomas
Nov. 2nd, 2008 11:51 am (UTC)
I put you on it!

And thanks! I hope your progress continues to be good as well!

Sounds like a good idea about the filter. Even though I am not participating but it seems several of my flisters are and it will be a pain to see these updates day after day after day...

Good luck with it, sweetie.

*hugs of encouragement*

*hugs back*

Yeah, I only want to clutter up the pages of those who want it!
