Nanowrimo <3

This is my seventh year doing Nanowrimo. I'm setting a high goal and I'm going to regret it when November finally rolls around. For now I have a different project that I'm trying to get out of the way first.

My best advice for Nano is not to go at it alone. If your region has write-ins then take part and stay active on the forums. YWS Nanoers tend to congregate in Chat for word-wars, which for me has been the main thing that gets me through November :p Having someone to answer to and people rooting you on is something that you can't do without if you're going for 50k in a month.

This will be my third year doing nanowrimo. It's almost a week away, and I'm still not sure what I'm going to write about. Could be slightly problematic... haha.

It's also my first time and I've planned my plot and characters. I need to do an outline of chapters and things to be ready for November! ;D

Why should Caesar just get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar, right? Brutus is just as smart as Caesar, people totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar, and when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody because that's not what Rome is about! We should totally just stab Caesar!
