NaNo and miniWriMo Day 1 (or 2) checkin

Hey everyone!

It is that time of year again! Time for all those participating in NaNoWriMo and miniWriMo to sound off and announce your goals for this month.

I'll be hosting a lot more word wars this month (stay tuned for announcements of times and dates) as well as offering my cheerleading services. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions, are stuck on something or just want to vent/scream/cheer.

I'm going to be working on a new, original manuscript for NaNo called Strays. What will you be working on?

I both has waited for this and dreaded it.
Looking forward as this year is my tenth year of partipience in mini wrimo, so of course I will make the try.
Dreaded it as I have almost no inspiration/Writing this last year (since last November).
This mean I only signed up for 100 Words/day. I probably thought that during all these years I would be able to take part in the big one...
I will be happy to write the Words I signed up for everyday, but if I only managed to write a few I will still see as a win thinking of how I been writing.
So I would need a lot of cheering and pushing. You are welcome to give me some suggestions on what to write. Are there anything you would like to se be continued, snippet, drabble, short story of what I written let me know and I will try to work on it. One thing I will try to work on is the Christmas Stories I began a few years ago. (I do have a sequel/part 2 in mind for the Steve/Danny fic, as there are a few more gifts to open. :) )
Now of to try to begin.

Against my better judgement (ie repeated years of failing to make a dent in any word count), I just logged in and committed.

Good luck, everyone!

There's a multi-chapter fic that I hope to make the focus of the month. It requires some research, but hopefully I can write and research as the weeks go by and end up with at least 20k there.

Beyond that, I think i'll aim to finish some wips- and if the total comes close to or exceeds 50k, I'll be jumping up and down happy. :)

I'm doing the sequel to a previous NaNo, set in post-apocalyptic NYC, where a series of catastrophic events has introduced mutations and changes into the human genetic pool into the massive societal destruction and collapse. Some mystery, a little bit of romance, some action, some interfamily personal drama.
doubt the story will be done at 50k, but it should get me to an end of the month win...if work actually lets me right :/

And for the 11th year in a row, I'm in! October has been crazy and I haven't had time to do any outlining or prep work, so I don't think I'll manage much, but few words is still better than no words :D

I'm in! I am writing my story and I'll be writing at least 50,000 words. Yes, my own, real life, surviving all the crud and ending up on the other side in a much better place story. I have no back up plan. I also have no idea what direction this thing is going. Right now it's words on the page that I'll edit later. :D I am also preparing for this to be an emotional roller coaster that I'll survive as well! :)
