NaNo...

September 28th, 2008 (01:40 am)
Tags:

A lot earlier than expected, but apparently NaNo's site has already gone through it's annual cleanup and is set for this year's fun. As some people know, I'll be doing NaNo in Japanese this year in an attempt to avoid last year's fun of not being able to switch from English to Japanese for the JLPT which follows immediately after. Like last year, I'll be writing a Ghost Hunt fan fic although the plot is only partially scribbled out at the moment. (That's okay, I winged it last year and didn't have any real plot beyond a basic concept and an end scene that I wanted to write.)

So, who's in for the insanity this year? ^^;

I will be! But you know that already. ^_^

I'll be trying to write a original horror/supernatural piece. I need to hammer out all the details, but I should be good by the time November is here.

Sounds like fun! ^_^ There's still plenty of time to hammer out the details, but don't wait too long lest start time sneak up on you. ^^;

Good luck! ^_^

I'm in for yet another year! But instead of something new I'm just gonna write more on the fanfic we started last year. My friend and I co-author it. So we're planning on hittin 100,000 words more in November. gods...the sad thing is that it doesn't sound impossible.

It's not, though, is it? Good luck!

Considering the fic is already well over 300,000 words, definitely not impossible. Haha.

thank you! Good luck to you too!

Sounds like fun! I'm not sure about co-authoring since it introduces so many more headaches. Doable, sure, but... ^^;;

Good luck with it! ^_^

ah, we have no problems at all co-authoring. We write it like it's an RP so it's more a problem of us never being online together enough. LOL. I'm just too lazy to edit anything. But I should cause it's a bleach fic of awesome.

*perks up* Did you say Bleach?

Haha yea. It's my obsession. This started as an innocent crack fic and turned into the trilogy that ate our brains. Last year's NaNo we decided to write a backstory fic focusing on Isshin, Yoruichi, and Kisuke. And since we already started a future fic, we technically can't start anything "new" for the trilogy for this year's NaNo, LOL.

But your plot is solid, though. I still need to do research. ^_^

Er... clean up? *looks at NaNo page* Hmm... must investigate.

'Solid,' she says... *sigh* Ah well, I'm planning on at least finishing off IW's rewrite before NaNo starts so it should be interesting. ^^;

Yeah, they purge the database of old messages and other 'stuff'. Some interesting changes on the back end compared to last year. ^_^

It is solid. Trust me. ^_^

I'm thinking of buying that travel mug Nano has.

*laughs* I might go for last year's t-shirt. Male parental is complaining he's running out of t-shirts and it'll be awhile before I can get out to Toronto and buy him any there. :P I'm also debating this years just because, but... I'm not fond of the design. >.> Ah well. Shall see how the spending goes now that Mokkun's suddenly down. >.<;;

Ah Lucky, you are doing it in Japanese. How very cool and commendable! *raising hand* I am doing it too, but sadly in English, and I have no idea yet, what I'm writing. My current wip is still being slaved over. ^-^;;

OO! Go for it, Daisuke-chan!

Are you going to try it this year? The more the merrier I always say. But, keep in mind Nano is no party....It kicks off that way, and then kicks your butt, over and over. lol ^-^;; Daisuki-chan

Yup, I'm going for it this year. ^_^

YAY! Any idea on what you're going to be working on? If not, don't feel too bad, I have no clue either...

I'm doing a Ghost Hunt story. ^_^

*laughs* Don't know about cool and commendable, but I'm sure hoping it'll save my sanity for the JLPT. ^^; If, by some miracle, I manage to pass the exam, I'm planning on doing either a mix of one J and one E, or one E at 100k next year. :P Have to find a good challenge level, although I think it'll also vary according to how RL is going at the time too. ^^;

There's still lots of time to hammer out a plot if you want to do things that way. Depends if you want to plan ahead or wing it and see how that goes. ^^;

Good luck!

Good luck ^_^

...not that I'll stand a chance of being able to read it, is why I've had to find a couple of translators for my soon-to-begin project. (Nodame Cantabile S2)

Cheers! ^_^

^^;; I don't expect very many people will be reading this year's NaNo in any form. *laughs* Good luck with your project! ^_^

Sounds like you've got a bit of decision making to do! ^_^

Good luck!
