Hmm...I've never done a NaNo either. Infact, I was never really sure what it was. Haha, I'm so sheltered *sigh* I think that this is a fabulous idea. I would never try for 50k in one month...I'd never make it. I think I'm improving on my writing. Last summer, I spent the entire time PLANNING a book. Alright...maybe just the characters. Haha. And, anyway, count me in. I could work on my book(man is it suffering...haha) and my other ten books(*cough* Yes, I have writing problems). But, I think having a goal like this would help me write more. So, yeah. I am definately in for a summer Gaian NaNo...If someone would care to keep me posted(I might aswell be called Dory, my memory is so horrible), I'd be most grateful!
Ooh! Yay! This makes me happy! Ooh! I was already planning on it ...
Though I'm going to Germany for three weeks in June, so it's going to be kinda hard to write that much then ... but I'll definately start in July. I've got a novella all planned out, all I need to do is actually write.
Should we make this some sort of official contest? A guild tried to run a novel writing contest like this once, but then the guild died.
I don't think it should be a contest where people compete against each other. Instead it should be a big glittery goal floating in the writing realms of Gaia. There should be a slogan like, "Summer WriMo... are you hardxcore enough?" We should help each other, not hinder.
I don't like writing contests; someone always gets angry and bitter.
