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?
Oct. 12th, 2008 05:51 pm (UTC)
Oh, yes! You've been one of my inspirations to join this thing! Wanna be buddies?
Oct. 12th, 2008 06:25 pm (UTC)
Yeah, of course! =D

How do I find you? (Or you could friend me via the link up there, and then I'll reciprocate.)
Oct. 12th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC)
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. ;)

Added you back! Good luck this year. :)

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!

Oh wow, is it that time already? That's so exciting!

Good luck! :D
Oct. 12th, 2008 07:55 pm (UTC)
It is! Just a few weeks left to go! :)

We'll miss you like mad, but we both totally support your joining NaNo. But I can haz my Mom back after November, plz?
Oct. 13th, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
U can haz. ♥
Oct. 13th, 2008 03:42 pm (UTC)
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.)
Oct. 13th, 2008 08:02 pm (UTC)
Great - I'll just keep in my "To Do" folder until then. :)
Oct. 13th, 2008 08:03 pm (UTC)
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*

Oct. 13th, 2008 08:09 pm (UTC)
*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! :)
Oct. 13th, 2008 11:59 pm (UTC)
*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
