Thinking, but it'll be a while before I can circle back to this one. [Smile]

Easy one. [Smile]

Working on it. [Smile]

Meredith,

Will you be doing special NaNo support groups in Nov?
I'm considering giving it a shot.
I've got 10k in a novel I'm hoping to get to 50 - 60k.
If anyone else is doing it, maybe we can get a group encouragement going?
50k in a month is a TON.

Hadn't thought of it, but why not?
I've never done NaNo and am not officially doing it this year, either. But I will be trying to get some serious progress made on WAR OF MAGIC (that is, if these other stories will leave me alone for a month or so).
What did you have in mind?

Meredith,

Nothing official, really.

Maybe just in the title of your original post to mention Nano.

Novel and NaNo support group.

Something like that. Maybe some folks will stop by with word counts or whatever.

I'm always down for some word count reporting. [Smile]

I'll be stopping by with word counts for sure. XD Possibly on a daily basis to keep myself motivated.

I haven't gotten my outline finished, but I do have a plan for the next few days: finish getting my short story readable so I can get it set up for crits, finish my novel outline, take a month off from my short story while I work on NaNo, and then edit my short story once NaNoWriMo is finished.

Well, I can do a daily check-in for word count or whatever in addition to the regular weekly post. (Or anyone can, really. Especially if I happen to forget. [Smile] )
