Mini wrimo or Nanowrimo

Hi friends...

I know I been very silent of latley, and probably will until next month. I haven't written anything for weeks, but as November is getting closer I so have to try to change it because why break something I taken part for several years?! I've signed up for mini_wrimo even this year with the minimum word count 100/day and hope to managed the whole month. I plan to try to finish the xmas stories I started last year, which hopefully includes one or two sequels, and some drabbles if I'm not able to continue on any of my wips or orginals.

I'm curious is there anyone else that will take part in mini_wrimo or the big one Nanowrimo?
