You're dealing with writers. The words "normal" and "usual occurrence" do not compute.

I am greatly surprised by the fact that over half of our Young Writers are not going NaNoWriMo! I think that it is a great thing! It is the only time that I actually finish everything (every other month out of the year I just start and stop about fifty things) but with NaNoWriMo I finished a play last year. I think that instead of saying no, everyone should just try. If you don't suceed, that's okay, at least you tried. :)
Many ask me if I see the glass as half full or half empty. Well, I don't know about you, but I see the glass as, WHO DRANK HALF OF MY MILK?!?!?!

Not this year. :(

psychopaths and mystery writers.

I think I'm just going to use it as motivation to finish the book I started. So, kinda?

NaNoWriMo is only the MOST EPIC thing ever!!! Hahahaha... the idea is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. There are tons of write-ins as well, where other writers gather to have a sort of "jam session." It's tons of fun :3

I am!! First year and I think I have an idea that might work well. Is a novel idea I've been outlining for several weeks before a few days ago when I started typing it. It's not done outlining but I got 2 parts at least main plots down. Hopefully this goes well

Yeah, I'm in the "kind of" category xD My friend and I are actually doing a collaboration, but it's slow going. And I just started college this term so homework is eating me T.T If you see our story "Shadows of the Mind" up on Wattpad, check it out :)
