NaNo Day 24 Shout Out

November 24th, 2008 (12:11 am)

current mood: blank

And it's now Day 24 for NaNo! By the end of today, you should have reached 40k! The official word counter will be activated starting tomorrow, so rather than seeing green, we'll soon be seeing purple. ^o^

For some reason my NaNo suddenly decided to become even more complex today, and not only am I stuck with another plot twist on my hands, I'm only into day 3 of the whole situation. >.> Hopefully, things will clear up in another day or two plus a bit more time at the end, but... this silly twist means massive changes to the earlier parts as well. *sigh* That's okay, I'm having a horrible time trying to *read* what I've written. All the weird typos is making for some really hard deciphering. >.<;; At least with English, it's not too difficult to figure things out, but Japanese...... Ah well. That's for later.

And for everyone participating, please remember to double check your NaNo user profile's timezone setting. This is especially important for us folk who go through Daylight Saving Time. The system doesn't auto change for it, and must be manually adjusted. Oh, and now would also be a good time to back-up your story somewhere. ^_^

Anyhow, sound off!

(FWIW, I'm at 45 152 at the start of the day. Two to three more days for me to cross the finish line. Yay! And who knows how many more words to *finish* the story. *sigh*)

LOL. I started the day with 27,000... ~___~;;; My goal is to get to 40,000 (at least) in the next 7.5 hours...

But yay for catching up and getting ahead!

Yikes on the start point today. ^^; Hang in there! You can do it! ^o^

I'm going to try to write a little more tonight, but the brain's starting to balk at any more J typing. ^^;

*laughs* I was pretty resolved to failure last week, since the week before I hadn't been able to do anything due to a last minute project I had to finish... and then last week I was sick, which just kills all motivation. XXDD

But, I have hope again! I can do it. I just need 8500 more to get to where I need to be for today.

Yeah. I don't think I'd be able to do it in a second language. Yours is a lot harder than mine. You can do it! You will do it, actually, though maybe not tonight. :D

You can do it! ^o^ You've written up quite the storm, so hopefully you're close to being back on track if not ahead now. ^_^ Good luck!

*laughs* Definitely not tonight. My brain will liquefy, but I'm going to do my best to finish tomorrow night. ^_^

I managed to get up to 40,000 yesterday. So maybe today I can get another few thousand and still manage to finish early... Maybe..

*laughs* Yay for finishing tomorrow! :D

November really passed fast and now I have to realize that I haven't written even a half for my NaNo story. I should force myself to write... somehow. :D
But at least I hope that next year my English skills would be a little better and my muse wouldn't die all the time. :D

Anyways, good luck with your fic! :3 I am happy for those who can keep writing all the time. It's really awesome! ^_^

Yikes! Curse real life and other things that get in the way. :P Are you writing in English (a second/other language)? I'm learning first hand how frustrating it can be to do something like NaNo in a language other than your main. ^^;;

It may still be possible to fight your way through to the end. You never know. ^_^ (I managed to dash through the end last year, but am finding such sprints difficult to do this year. ^^; )

Hang in there! Good luck!

Yesh, they are already cursed. *laughs* English is my other language. ^^ Yeah, and I bet that writing in Japanese is much more harder. ^^;;

Meh, I don't know. I will e happy if a write a half of it. ^^ And then I will try harder next year.

But maybe I have an idea why the story doesn't want to be written! Maybe Bou-san doesn't want to get hit by a alarm clock which was threw by a half-awake Naru! >8DD

Thanks :3

Well good luck to everyone, hope your Japanese-to-English problem clears itself up!

You tell me when you've reached the finish line and we'll post our goodies the same day. ^_^

*laughs* 680 words to go. I'm going to try to wring them out of me during the night, but argh! Mai's fighting me right now. (So are the others, but...) ^^; And I'm not even close to actually finishing this story. >.> Ack!

And I'm purple! ^o^ The word counter added ~4500 words to my word count?? Yikes! I tried fixing my word count but the system unwins me if I do. ^^; I might have to use a word generator or something, not that it *really* matters. ^^;; I'm over 50k for the story and by NaNo's counter. ......The only thing is the story's not finished. *sigh* I've got 2-3 scenes still to go plus the end plus the epilogue. >.>
