Default NaNoWriMo 2015

[I saw a 2014 thread, but not a 2015 one, so please delete if this is a repeat thread]

I know it's September, but the Planning Month starts in a few weeks, so I thought it might help the less confident among us to start a little early. I've been a Municipal Liaison, so I'm quite enthusiastic, lol.

So who's playing in November?
Do we all know what we're working on? Does anyone need help nailing down an idea, or getting inspiration?

I'm definitely gonna do it, no matter what, so you've got at least one person to support you and share your misery (and eventual triumph!) :-D

I'm going to attempt it again. I still haven't decided what I want to do for it. The last two times I have barely gotten anything done on it, but this year I think I'm going to buckle down and not let myself get in my own way. =)

Do you know what you are gonna do for it yet?

Good! It can get a bit intense in places, but they payoff is well worth it.

I'm not entirely sure, if I'm honest. I'm planning to continue on with my current cast of characters, but my foreseeable sequels have been started, as has the prequel, and I'm not one for bending the rules, even if NaNo is a fairly low-key competition.

That's how I am. Most of my current projects I have already started writing, so I feel like I have to pick one of my other ones. But I'm not sure which of those would be best.

You just put something into my mind ... one of my future projects ... to write a fairy tale and also do the art for it.

Mine is also a fairy tale, Skadi! Though I'm not very artistic visually, lol.

More NaNo-ers, how awesome! We have a new thread for it every year and I seriously always forget about it until the last week of October, so I don't think we have one for this year yet.. I've always hit a homerun every year since I began participating, but for this year I'm fresh out of ideas and have a bunch of other stuff going on so I guess we'll see how it goes?

I always start panicking about the last week of September. I usually need all of October to get things in order to streamline November. Also, I go off caffeine in October so that it works properly when NaNo hits. Maybe I can throw some prompts out and see if anything sticks :-)

I'm making my usual valiant effort at it, but this November I'm at a job where I actually have to work, and November will probably be a pretty busy month for me. But I have several script projects lined up and begging to be written, so I'll champion them as long as I can.
