NaNoWriMo and Mini_WriMo checkin

How's everyone doing? We're a third (or maybe a little further depending on your timezone) of the way through.

Question 1 - How many of you are doing NaNo or mini_wrimo for the first time?
Question 2 - Do you skip days when you're not feeling up to it, or do you prefer to try and write anything so not to fall behind?
Question 3 - Is everyone having fun? :)

I have about a half day's worth of words banked, which is about average for me. I used to skip days, sometimes many in a row - and then put up monster numbers on weekends, but as I've done more of these, I've sort of moved to somewhere in the middle. I'll skip a day or do a very light day if I need to, but I try not to let too many of those stack up (at least until I've made up my word deficit).

I love November because of NaNo/mini_wrimo - even if I don't wind up loving the project, I enjoy all the social activities.

Sound off with your raves/rants :)

Good luck today folks!
