So, I know a few of us are signed up for National Novel Writing Month, but I thought it might be useful to list those taking part here in case there's anyone else I'm not aware of. Or in case it prompts anyone else to join the insanity ;)

The Secret Writer (username Miss_Paige)
Annieye
Debs
Rachel (username leatherdykeuk)
Liz
Helen Redfern (username velvetcupcake)
and of course me! (my username is geordiewatcher [I have no idea if that link will work but worth a try] - feel free to add me!) (- and you will be able to see my buddies and add them from there)

Anyone else to add? Anyone else want to join in?! 1,667 words a day from now til 30th November - piece of cake!!!!! ;o)

(updated a couple of times to add in more people and some usernames)

Eeek, I think we're all a little mad. I think Liz is doing it too.

Helen said...

I am thinking about it - left it until last minute! Will confirm if I do.

JJ Beattie said...

Eeek. No. I can't manage 166 words a day at the moment but I will be with you in spirit, shouting from the sidelines. Good luck all.

Lily Sheehan said...

Deffo gonna do it next year as only just finished draft one of novel one. Good luck to everyone!!

B said...

Go on Helen! Most people don't 'win' (ie reach 50k) so it's not like you'll be a loser if you don't make it. I've tried a load of times and never got beyond 12k :)

Debs, we are!

JJ and Lily, I expect to see you signing up next year :)

I would have if I'd finished the outline for my next novel, but I've not been too well. I might try a bit of catch up later on.

HelenMHunt said...

I think you're all very brave. Good luck.

Leatherdykeuk said...

I'm doing it too - same name if anyone wants to add me

JJ Beattie said...

Does anyone know if we non-Nano-writers can follow your progress without being logged in to do Nano?

B said...

JJ - I've added a word counter for nano on my blog. Otherwise no, I don't think so - but I was thinking about logging my progress on 100 words a day - would that be all right with everyone?

liz fenwick said...

I'm in - thus far just shy of 700 and need to get back to it. Will try and find everyone later when I put my count in.

JJ Beattie said...

Yes B. I'm going to be posting there and very happy to see you Nanos recording there too.

Best of luck.

Kate Lord Brown said...

Good luck everyone - did it last year and still recovering! Maybe next year ...

~chews nails~

I know I said I was on sabbatical but I just couldn't resist.

One thing, I can't find everyone; what are your nicknames on there? I'm down as dkleather.

Good luck and see you all on the flip side!

The Secret Writer said...

Yep, I'm doing it too!

Although my username is Miss_Paige - Feel free to add me too! :)

Helen said...

Yes I'm doing it! Right now in fact. Just having a short break. I'm down as velvetcupcake.

Annieye said...

Brilliant, B, I've just spent ages on the Nano website looking for Novel Racers. I agree, Debs - I think we must all be just a little unhinged.

B said...

glad it helps :)
i don't think we have a single hinge between the lot of us! ;)

Captain Black said...

Good luck everyone!

good luck all!
