Add questions and answers here. If you want to add a second answer to a question, feel free to do so!

Q: What is NaNoWriMo?
A: Read the information on <>, it's all explained there! In short, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is an idea created by a guy called Chris Baty. The goal for each participant is to write a novel consisting of at least 50000 words during November. NaNoWriMo is held each year. Participation is free. /[peura]

Q: Should I join NaNoWriMo?
A: If you go to <>, read what it is about and think "this I must do!" then you should definitely join. If you're indifferent, you can join and do a fair attempt. If you hate writing and think that this is the most silly idea you've ever seen, you can join anyway and make an attempt, so that you can prove that it truly is a silly idea. /[peura]

2008-10-14 [LustForLike]: I'm in!

2008-10-14 [little flag]: Yay!! Here's hoping for an absoulutely epic month this time around... For some reason the idea of a second NaNo seems maybe more manageable than the current second year of college eating my lif lol.

2008-10-14 [Linderel]: I'll be staying on the sidelines this year, cheering. :)

2008-10-31 [little flag]: Woo hoo!! Midnight tonight!! For once I'm not the only participant at my college, we're throwing a kickoff party in our Halloween costumes at 12 a.m.! Now if only I had a plot... (If anyone's interested in my AWESOME costume, I put pictures on my profile! ^_^)

2008-10-31 [Linderel]: Partial change of mind :P

2008-11-02 [Arbor]: Go, us! Who's got a fabulous start already?! ^_^

2008-11-02 [little flag]: ...This is horrible. I've got nothing. I'm a full day behind. Great.

2008-11-03 [Fireblade K'Chona]: I didn't get to write at all on day 1, but I was on the train 4 hours this morning and got 6000 words down.

2008-11-03 [little flag]: Nice! I think I'm going to be cramming tonight after work... I've only got enough for one day, much less three!

2008-11-05 [Fireblade K'Chona]: So in mine I've got these two main characters who are best friends, and they're very close.

And they just had this fight that I totally wasn't expecting, and now it's horribly tense and awkward.

Still, it's very verbosely tense and awkward!

2008-11-05 [Veltzeh]: Title fix!

2008-11-05 [SAHS]: I cannot believe I haven't found this page in the 4 years I've been doing NaNo! Shame on LFL for sharing but not the ET club with me, shame.

2008-11-05 [Kaeirdwyn]: I will be cramming tonight. I need to catch up. I have no title, but I have a great premise...and start. I just need to get it going.
Welcome to the Page!!!
Now as far as December goes, we should all meet here in December to do rewrites... every year someone says this and it falls through. It is a good idea though.

2008-11-06 [SAHS]: Yes, it is. I'm in! - I steamed along for the first five days of NaNo, and as of right now I have a little over 29K to my wordcount. I've hit one heck of a block though, and my idea to fix it involves a massive rewrite of the last eight chapters or so. Let this be yet another lesson encouraging folk to pace themselves.

2008-11-08 [Kaeirdwyn]: Don't take out your eight chapters!!!!! THey count for your word count...really
Just start a new chapter that says New CHapter such and such and start over from where you need to. COunt ALL the words you typed before though... It still was done during nano!!!
By the way...what is everyone's names on NaNo?? How about anyone who wants to can put their name on nano here so we can find each other there if names are different I mean....? Any takers?

2008-11-08 [Kaeirdwyn]: By the way, mine is the same...

2008-11-08 [Veltzeh]: I'm Veltzeh on, but I've yet to find out how to search people by name. XD

2008-11-08 [SAHS]: My NaNo name is SheAndHerSin. :) Google search workds pretty well, I think I found both of you. :)

2012-10-27 [Veltzeh]: Hey! NaNoWriMo 2012 is almost here! I'm thinking of updating this page, and I guess I will, soon.

2012-10-29 [iippo]: Y'know what...? I'mma gonna give it a stab. That story is just hanging out there in my brain and not getting written because I'm a lazy. And if nothing else will come out of it, words will that can then later be arranged into the correct form. :D

2012-10-29 [Veltzeh]: Woohoo!
