You only fail if you quit. NaNoWriMo is a personal challenge more than a contest. You can set a personal goal for yourself other than the 50k. It doesn't even have to be a specific word count. As long as you don't quit, even if you don't technically win, you're not a failure. You probably will write more in one month than a lot of other people do in a whole year or more (creatively speaking). So that's something.

I personally didn't get to start until the 5th, and that was a school day. School then loaded me with homework so I couldn't get anything written. So far I have 9040 words, and that's all I'm going to get thanks to my teachers.

I missed the start of novel writing month, which is rather depressing... I am planning on writing as much as I can, but I have no expectations of finishing : (

Keep trying. Push yourself. NaNoWriMo isn't supposed to be easy! That's what makes it so fun and annoying!

I had a friend who attempted.
She got to 20568 words, but then accidentally deleted the whole thing! gonk
But hey, at least she tried her best...

oh my gosh that sucks. I would literally cry!!


My computer derped out on me once, and I lost about 100k on a project. It wasn't a NaNo one but I was so proud out it and I totally flipped. I was angry all day until I found a way to recover it, and then I cried in relief and made about twenty backups of it.

It's my first year. I didn't expect to make it ^^;

This is bullshit!
No, wait,
THIS IS SPAAARRRTTTTAAAAAAA!
*Kicks*

No, um... it's my first year out too. Current word count is 36,709 and that's because I'm screwing around on Gaia right now instead of writing.

I was doing well until I got sick twice. Had no energy to do anything much less write. ;_;
Ahah I only got to 2000 words and fell behind miserably. School got the best of me and decided to rip me a new one.

It's the problem with being a third-year English major, I guess.

I thought about joining but didn't. Do you have a private page you write on or can everyone see it? Or do you just write wherever and keep count? I'm a little confused since I've never done it.

Good luck to everyone on making your goals! biggrin

Tried to rekindle something I had going, but I got no spark.
Can I just say it's really awesome to hear from so many Gaians?! smile
I mean, I basicly gave up Nano, but I've been inspired and even though I won't finish by November, I've vowed to write at least one full paragraph a day. It'll take longer, but I know I can do it. smile
And definite kudos to those of you who finished Nano! You are brave Gaians.
