NaNoWriMo time!

I know this thread is about two days late in the starting, but I just realized that it is November, which means it's NaNoWriMo time! So, all my writing HF-ers, who out there is going to participate this year?

I am going to try (tried last year and failed epically lol). I'm having a hard time coming up with a title for my work, though! Any help would be appreciated. It's a story about a British female assassin who works for a secret organization most of her life only to find out that that same organization is the reason she was an orphan at 16. She then starts a campaign to bring down the organization because she knows they will never let her go willingly and she wants revenge for the murders of her parents. Mixed up in it are a British MI6 agent (and MI6 in general) and an American CIA agent (who has kind of gone rogue). The central "theme" to the novel is going to be trust--knowing who you can trust, earning trust, etc. So, bring on the ideas!

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I'm going to give it a go. What's the worst that can happen? I won't be the first to not finish if I run out of steam.

It's fun, Lis. Especially if you have people to encourage you and write with you (which is kind of why I created this thread). I have a friend that introduced me to it last year and we keep each other going on it.

Feel free to use this thread as a sounding board if you get stuck on a scene, or need encouragement, or just anything.

By the way, here's the website for NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month

I haven't even settled on a plot yet, nevermind actual scenes lol. I kept seeing it cropping up all over Fanfiction and Fictionpress so I was already curious then I saw this and decided I'll give it a go as well.

I've signed up, I'm Reani on there since somebody else already had Lis pfft honestly. I'm wishing I still had the first draft of a piece of coursework that I did last year but I really can't remember what I wrote in it!

I don't think I could write one in just a month... I sometimes can sit down and write pages and other times I'll spend hours writing one paragraph...

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

Really, you "only" have to write 1,667 words, not the whole thing.

Farmpony, I am sooooo digging your avatar. Lol
