 Who'd doing NaNoWriMo this year and what are your  projects for November?

Last year I deconstructed and re-wrote an original series Battlestar Galactica fanfic I wrote back in the early 89's. This year I'm planning on a historical fiction story called Tales from The Silk Road.

I even got the husband into writing NaNo this year. He's doing a Weird West piece he's had an idea for for a long time. Frankly I'm surprised I could talk him into a lot of stuff over the past few months. I have effectively dragged his antiquated tail and most of his technology into the 21st century after many many years of him digging his heels in with denial that he needed to join the rest of the human race. I even got him onto Facebook. I never even prayed that could happen.

I've decided not to do it this year. I've loved doing it in the past (10 years! Wow!) but the pressure is beginning to get to me. I don't have inspiration like I used to and some days I just stare at the monitor and wonder WTF.

Google name generators. There's a ton of them out there. Some are even specific to Harry Potter, LoTR and other fandoms. Good luck with your story.

i have no plan beyond a vague "write 50k this year!!" so on the 1st of the month i'll just open a new document, put my fingers on the keyboard, and see where that takes me.

I was going to work on original fic this year but I've really left it too late to plan properly, so I'm going to write fic. Again. But I'll enjoy that!

Don't be envious. I've had this idea for over 35 years, and I've been working on/off it for the past fifteen.

I have a baker's dozen of wips to play with. Three are failed Nano attempts. Most are projects I've spent time worldbuilding and have a vague plot. It would be great if I could focus on one and get it completed, but based on the past this isn't going to happen.
My current plan is to write 1-3 days on a wip, then switch over to the next wip that catches my interest. I will repeat the process until I hit 50,000 new words or until the end of the month.
I have everything saved to the same yWriter project folder, so it should be simple to keep track of the starting # and ending #.

Officially, probably not. But... if I combine everything at the end and call it an anthology of short stories, it might work.

I'm doing it, and I've a vague idea. It's space opera, and has a blurb and a title. A couple of named characters. Absolutely no outline.

Onwards!
