NaNoWriMo, Anyone?

Howdy, all. Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo? I try every year, but crap out at about 10k words. This year, I'm going to try it again. I'm thinking about posting my daily output, but I'm worried that it won't be SF enough and that it will be very rough. I'm always hesitant about posting first draft. Any thoughts?

Vox Silencio

This is Chapter One of my this year's entry for NanoWriMo.

As I write this update note, we are halfway through and the story is progressing incredibly well (well, the words are going down on the page and that is the point of Nano) My next entry will summarise the remainder of the story (once it is all writ).

The address was right but Louise couldn't see the company name against any of the buttons on the intercom.

Who all is NaNoWriMo-ing?

Just wondering.

Discussion: Onward.

Well, I made it. 50 thousand words within a thirty day time span. Was it ever a rush and a mess and a big pile of WTF all at once. I'm not even going to look at the manuscript for a few days. I need time to purge. Now I understand what deadline means. And I had the advantage of not having my livelihood depend on the production. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to get myself into such a position, but I've got some work to do before it happens.

Greater than the sum - Chapter one of my NaNoWriMo entry this year

“Explain this agency, how may we help you?”
“It’s THE Explain this agency, Carla!” said Simon Banks, the agency’s owner but Carla wasn’t listening to him. Once again her eyes rolled upwards as she started to type furiously.
Simon sat down at his screen to see what was coming in. This time it was his turn to roll his eyes. Yet another member of the Great British Public had failed to ‘get’ the point of his investigation agency.
