  1. My son and I do Nanowrimo together! I wrote my first Nano as a children’s novel for him. I wrote horribly, but it was tons of fun and the next two years we did it together. He writes for Young Writers’ Program, so the word goal is different and our competition is based on percentage completed. It’s a blast doing Nano together. :D

    • Hey Ganymeder,

      What a cool concept. I’m encouraging the teachers at the local middle school to get involved with the YWP component of the NaNoWriMo. I’m really looking forward to doing this one.


  2. Hi George,
    Hey, good on ya’ for getting your NaNoWriMo on! I finished NaNo last year (in 19 days!) and it was a rip-roaring time. Once I got going, I was on fire.

    I’ll be checking in on you to watch your words soar to the sky. And, yeah, I think what made all the difference is that I plotted out a general outline in ~40 bullet points (plot points) prior to go time — it seemed pretty easy to just pick the “bullets” for the day and write the heck out of ‘em.

    I’m on the fence if I want to get my NaNoWriMo on in 2010, but I’ll let you know if I decide to make a run for it. Have fun, George!

  3. Hi George,

    This is very tempting. As a non-fiction writer it would be interesting to try and write a novel. I’m sure I would need all the help I could get.

    I’ve heard about this project before and it always sounds appealing, but I am always afraid it will take away from my other writing projects.

    We will see if I have the mojo to do it. haha.

    • Hey Jeremy,

      I’ll keep an eye out for you. If you need a hand just let me know. Could be fun to give it a go, even if you don’t finish!


  4. I’m looking forward to my 6th consecutive NaNo attempt and win this year. Doing things a bit different, as I’m doing more of a Jr. Novel Series. I have a young reader and I thought it might be fun to write something he could read this year.

    • Grady,

      Sixth one? That’s awesome. A YA novel could work out really well, I bet. Pretty cool that you are keeping your young ‘un in mind too.

      Best of luck and I hope to see you in Nano land
