I just had to go and put "Kind of" as an option, because that's what I would choose.
For NaNo, I'm going to continue a story that I've already started but abandoned for weeks. I might set myself a personal "NaNo" goal, like 10,000 words or something. So practically... not NaNo? Whatever...
So, how about you?

Totally. I blame two people who shan't be named here for getting my old-new-member self to do it LAST year, getting me hooked in the process.
The problem with this is that I still don't have a plot or characters... I should probably get on that, huh? ._. Butyeah. NaNo is being.... NaNo'd.

I'm gonna try! I certainly have an idea. It needs fleshing out still, and if life slows down, I'll totes get on that. However, I'm going to try for it! Hopefully, it'll go better this year than last year. 8D
I make my own policies.

I want to --
-- but I feel like I won't have time.
Which is a shame, because I already have an epic idea in mind, which I won't use. D:

Yep. Apparently I am giving this a go, though my head and I haven't yet had the conversation about where it's going to fit in our schedule.

D: These polls never add up to 100%! It is actually driving me crazy.
...um, and yeah, I might be doing nano, I have to see if I have time...but seriously! These polls! Some of those poll monkeys need a math tutor.
Reader, what are you doing?

I'm kind of doing NaNo. I don't trust myself to get started though... But the more I think about the more appealing it gets. To have my own finished manuscript by December ready for editing? Heck yeah! Having to write 1666 and two thirds of a word for 30 consecutive days.... I'm not so sure I can do that. I unfortunately get distracted to easily, and I suffer from perfectionism. My inner editor never wants to turn off. Hopefully, NaNo will let me overcome my inner editor and actually get a book to chapter 10 before I scratch it and decide to rewrite. I don't have that much school work to make NaNo impossible, but between procrastinating and school work, I don't think I'll get more than 2 chapters done max. 'Tis sad, but it's the truth. D: Last year, I registered for NaNo and began brainstorming, but I never wrote down a single word... Hopefully this year I'll write more than zero. xP
Please take care to use good grammar when making a post!

I probably will but I just got an idea so I have to rush because I need to plan XD If I don't plan, my efforts will be hampered. And I've been dying to NaNo.

Yes! I have no idea when I'm going to find the time, but I'm sure if I do get time, it will be epically fun.

Time? What's that?

Honestly I find the idea of rushing out a novel rather stupid. Not only will it require rediculous ammounts of reedits but you don't get the time to really plan or enjoy the writing process

I had a plan to, but I have exams throughout the month so I won't have the time. Good luck to anyone and everyone that tries, however.

Er, forgive my stupidness, but what is NaNoRiMo?

I want to get 100,000 words but I'll be happy with half of that.

NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month and I'm going with
. I don't really have a lot of time, but I'm going to set myself a goal for getting half way through my current novel. Sort of the same as Dems really.
Good luck to you all!
