I think that makes you a "NaNo Rebel." You get your own forum, so it can't be too wrong...

I'm also in.

I've never completed NaNo, but I'm in as a rebel: I'm a whisker under 70,000 words into a novel and I really need a complete first draft (140,000 words minimum) by the end of the year, so that's me in the corner.

(NB: my all-time record was 51,000 words in one week flat -- and published by an imprint of Penguin Random House, so it can't have been all that terrible -- so I'm basically using it as a pace car.)

"I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel!"

No, not so alone. I always wanted to be part of a Rebellion :lol: Good to know that "NaNo Rebel" is an actual thing!

Good luck on your projects and may the Force be with us.

Not doing NaNoWriMo this year, as my wife and I are going to do NaNoPloMo instead!

What's NaNoPloMo, you ask? That's where my wife and I are going to go through and plot all of my existing WIPs, trying out different methods and working on multiple projects to compare, contrast, and gain proficiency.
