I decided to enter into the NaNoWriMo! If anyone here has entered into it, let's get support for each other going! Maybe we can exchange ID's or talk about struggles on this thread. Apologies if this is not the right area for this.
I'm participating too! :) It's my third attempt. I 'won' last year, but I started with too little of a plan and never really found the heartbeat of that story despite the goal being reached. This year I have more of a grasp on that, so I'm hoping to have something workable by the end!
Looking forward to suffering along with you guys!
This is gonna be my second attempt at NaNoWriMo. Last year there was a lot going on, I wasn't really enamoured with the characters I was writing, and I ran out of steam about a third of the way through. This year I have a brand-new story idea (though set in the same universe as an existing one), and my life is a lot more settled.
If anyone wants to add me, my username on the site should be "F1Krazy", same as it is here.
At pretty much the last minute, I decided to try NaNoWriMo. I'm doing it mainly to try to better understand a universe I've been working on over the past year or two. Normally, I worldbuild for the sake of worldbuilding, rather than for a story. In this case, though, I have the world developed quite a lot, but I still don't know if everything in it truly works, for lack of a better word. I figured that if I try writing a story set in this universe, it might give me a better feel for how I've fit things together.
I've already asked some questions about my world on Worldbuilding Stack Exchange, and I bet some thoughts will drift onto some posts on Writers (I do need to improve my writing!). I'd like to keep my NaNoWriMo ID private (it's under my real name), but I'll try to edit this to talk about my progress.
