Hello, all! How is  your NaNo going? If you are participating this year, I hope you're seeing progress that makes you happy. I had hoped for better, but I'm not sure why I felt it was reasonable with many big work days and a major personal project on the plate this month. Sigh.

There is still time, though - even though that time is, urm... 12 days.  For inspiration, a post re: how to attack NaNowrimo late in the month.

One of the suggestions is Word Wars!  What do you think, any takers? If you have free time on 11/22 and/or 11/23 at @11am eastern or 3pm Eastern I could run a few rounds those dates. If you're too busy working or celebrating US Thanksgiving, another option is the weekend of 11/25 and 11/26 -- feel free to toss out some days/times and I'll gladly plan some word wars if any takers.

I did spent yesterday outlining one holiday gift fic. I know what I plan to write for the other. So at least I have a plan - and hey, who knows, I might not make 50k but perhaps I'll end this NaNo month witha decent total and a couple of nice gifties.

hit 38.5k this morning. knocking out at least another 1.5 by the other day is totally doable if I can keep the distractions at bay.
Early morning trip to the bank and PO took longer than expected as I had to sort out issues with my bank card...and the PO trip gave me things to wrap so that pulled away time ;)
Have to make more words while I can incase kidlet wants to tackle our hose of crafty projects we have to do. Or maybe we'll do those Thursday while the turkey is cooking and the kitchen is warm ;)
Long as I can get those projects done this week, the wrapping will be done...and I should get very close to 50k (or reach it...if the muses continue to cooperate)
Wow...that was a ramble!
Being as I'm on the west coast, not sure if my hours will sync with yours, but I'll see what I can do!

That's amazing! NaNo is barely a challenge for you. :). Nicely done, and I hope you get where you want to be with it. The T'giving gathering sounds lovely - enjoy, and if there is a time when Word Wars work then great, but no problem if not.

After several NaNos, when I realized that 50k wasn't that hard if I kept focus, I set my monthly goal year round to 50k...or at least 30 if I know a lot is going on.
sometimes its words, sometimes its editing time, but the number has become pretty normal for me.
I know some people who set a goal of double NaNo...but I have enough stress in my life without doing that to myself lol.
As long as I can keep up an average of 2k/2 hours a day, I'm good.

Saturday afternoon/evening or Sunday evening would work best for me. Not sure about Friday - the later the better. We're having people to our house on Thursday so that pretty much rules me out.

Got it - I could do some rounds at 2pEDT or 3pEDT Saturday. Will see if anyone else chimes in!

I'm free on the 26th, so can be up for anything.

Aw, crud - I screwed up. I meant the 24th and 25th, the weekend. The 26th I could do an evening round, though.
