Could write your dissertation as a novel? With interpretive dance, too? :) It's a real thing: http://tierneylab.blogs.nytimes.com/200 ... ertations/

garpu, great idea! A dissertation, a novel and a dance all at the same time! I'll start writing the music for that.

Good Luck

I hesitate to say it, but I think I might be in, too. Blame Pigfender and NIAD 2. It's given me a taste for writing again, after months in the desert.

I have just logged in to my NaNo account, and it still shows the music I was NaNo-ing to in 2007! Dear oh dear oh dear. I'm sure I've updated my account since then!

I'm in for the 7th year. :D

Been up to my eyeballs in revisions, which put me behind on my NaNo planning. I'll be outlining my butt off between now and midnight Halloween.

I' love NaNo! Bring on the sleepless nights, the bucketfuls of coffee, booze, and chocolate. Oh, and that damn free shrimp dinner, too! :twisted:

Tomorrow's the big day. :) I just wish I had something to write about... It's going to be a trickle of semi-consciousness, at this rate.

Edited to add: I go by the name of Sabre in the NaNo forums, by the way. I can't remember why. I think that at the time I joined, back in the mists of 2004, I was writing something with a sword in it.

I'm in yet again. OogieM over there too. Getting my laptop all tricked out with scrivener, scapple and aeon timeline and all my research notes in DEVONThink so I can take it down to the local pub/brewery tasting room and write away. I'll be in good company, Craig Childs wrote a lot of his most recent books, Apocalyptic Planet in there. :-)

Hey could some kind soul attach a blank NaNo 2012 template project? Template import isn't working on either platform for me. (Think the spaces and parenthesis in it are throwing it)

Well it's no wonder it ain't working. What d' y' expect for, or from, a bunch of sartorially inelegant, ubuntus and gnomes :shock:
