I’m… Joining The NaNoWriMo Rush – Writing Buddy, Anyone?

Ok. Deep breath. I have decided to do it. To take part in National Novel Writing Month, more commonly known as NaNoWriMo. I’ve said it now, so I guess that ties me in, right? Gulp.

I actually feel kinda lost when I think of doing it. I look at their website, and I get the ‘new girl’ feeling. As if everyone else has been doing this forever, and I’m pasting a smile on my face, trying to fit in with the flow, despite wondering how in the world I’m going to make it.

So, here’s my question: How many of you are doing NaNoWriMo? How many of you have done it before? Do you have any tips? Secrets? Ideas? ‘Cause pretty much, I’m eager to hear anything you so desire to tell me.

Another thing: Do any of you who are taking part in NaNoWriMo and want to be my writing buddy? Not that I’m even sure what that means…
I’m looking for someone who I can discuss plots, characters, word counts and ideas, etc… with. Are any of you interested? I’m thinking of someone who is serious about their writing, is open to nicely critiquing my stuff, and being willing to be nicely critiqued. 😀
(I’m not into fantasy, scary, creepy or overly romantic novels, but pretty much anything else I’m interested in.) 
And I guess the person wouldn’t even have to be part of the NaNoWriMo, I just need some more writers in my life! Sound good?

    I'm not doing NaNo, but I'd love to be your writing buddy. 🙂 Yes, I write fantasy, which I know you said you're not into, but if you're really DESPERATE for some company, I'd be only too glad to help. 🙂
    oh, some personal information, perhaps? I'm 17 years old, been writing since…well, ever, though I've never finished a work (sigh). I'm a Christian, although so far I've never inserted God into my stories, but if that makes you uncomfortable, feel free to ignore me. 🙂
    Finally, I have a writing blog at http://myfranticscribblings.blogspot.ca/
    and a random one with my friends at http://superhyperhumanbeings.blogspot.ca/
    Or email me at Candyiscool@live.com.
    Ok, I think that's all. Good luck with NaNo! 😀

    I know what you mean about needing writers in your life. Also about being the new girl. I'm also a new girl this year to NaNoWriMo. Would you like to be my writing buddy? We can stumble through this first year together. 🙂

    My username is L.M. Shearer.

    I'm new to NaNoWRiMo as well. Want to be writing friends? My username is KatsK. I'm 14, and I've been very seriously into writing for the past about nine months or so. I'm writing a young-adult dystopian.
    My blog is katiathewritergirl.blogspot.com, in case you're interested.

    Hey A.J. When I searched for you, tons of names came up, like over 50, so I thought maybe you could just add me as your writing buddy, then I can add you back. My user name is: Aidyl Ewoh
