Hello, NaNoers of this year! I'm gladly joining you.
although I'm a rebel this year, because I will be writing something I've started before NaNoWriMo. It is the sequel of my first ever published novel, a cyberpunk work. ^_^

I wish you all good luck!

Firstly - YOU'RE PUBLISHED? asdfghjkl can I has a link to it plz?

Second - This will be my fourth Nano, and my third year of cheating by using an already started work. Stupid rule in my opinion - so long as you write 50,000 words and don't include anything not written in November, it shouldn't matter. 50k is 50k.

Lykaios- Yes, my work will hit the shelves in one/two weeks.
And I can give you the link, but, unfortunately, my first novel is not published in English. Since I live in Latvia and my native language is Latvian, it is published in Latvian. The work is called "Field of Digital Forget-me-nots".
I do hope that I could get it translated into English one day, it would be great.

Do you all have plans for this NaNo's work? What are you all writing?

I want to do NaNoWriMo. I want to win, god dammit! If I won the summer camp, I can win this, right? Right?!

But f*ck it I don't have a plot.

YES YOU CAN!

Plots are rubbish anyway, don't worry about it.

Who says? Just send a load of people to the moon where they meet a runaway Australian astronaut and have a tea party in a crater. That's a party, not a plot, and parties are more fun, especially if they have cake.

Lykaios- thanks. ^_^
Alice- You really don't have anything? Like- anything at all? Maybe you can check NaNoWriMo Adoption page? I thing there was something like that! And from there you can adopt a plot.

I NEED A PLOT or I won't be able to write. The reason I could finish my novel over the summer was because I had a plot, so I knew where I was going D:
