Hey ya'll! I can't wait for November, and I seriously need to do some writing. I've decided to do MaNo, like NaNo, but in March. I'm not much of a self-motivator, so I was wondering if anyone else was interested in participating? It'll be good practice for NaNo, plus, you don't have to do 50,000 words, you can just set a word count that you feel you can accomplish.

Please! I can't do it alone! (I can, but it won't be nearly as fun.) Join me in our endeavor! I can't wait another nine months, and I hope you can't either!

I might consider doing MarNo. I really need the drive to focus on one thing and stay focused on it. WriMos help me with this, though not all the time. (I failed my last MarNo back in...oh, lordy. What year was it? '08? '09? I think... Failed it. Didn't get past 3,000 words... Anyway...)

Ahem. Anyhow. I'm up for it. It just depends on whether I'm actually moving during March or not, and how busy I am with or without that.
To see a world in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Woohoo! Sounds good. I failed at NaNo badly this year. I don't think I broke 5,000 words.

xD I got 50k during NaNo.
I was 8 minutes away from midnight, but still. Anyway, I might, depending on if I go to my god parents.

Maaaaaybe... maybe not.

I say this because although I have a plot bunny in my mind right now, I was going to do it for real NaNo. I said that to my characters because a. I need to dream more about the idea and b. I need to finish draft two of my current novel.

Since I don't have exams next month, I'm considering to do it for my second novel. I'll probably do it in chapters, so I'll aim to reac chapter 12 by the end!

I'm in too. No exams either. Especially since we have Spring Break next month, I'll have more time for MaNo. I aim to finish my novel by then. Haven't really started, but got the idea and plot ready. Have it outlined, so March 1st, I'm going to start typing furiously to finish it.
Writing your name can lead to writing sentences. And then the next thing you'll be doing is writing paragraphs, and then books. And then you'll be in as much trouble as I am!

MaNo sounds like a really tough, masculine version of NaNo, which in itself is an amusing image to conjour XD

But I'm totally up for MaNo! It will take my mind off the every looming and intolerably wicked month to follow: Script Frenzy.

Just noticed the date.......the 27th.....not that long.....MaNo starts Thursday.... Pumped up! I just wrote the final outline so I can have an idea on my novel. That way I won't forget it by then. Good luck to all the participants!

Woohoo! Two days until MaNo starts off! What's your word count/goal? I myself am shooting for fifty thousand words or the completion of my novel! Whichever comes first.

I gave up, partly because my Word trial expired. The other reason, I couldn't focus.
