I have 1858 words written for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I don't have the smallest wordcount of all my buddies, but I'm on the lower side. That's okay. I didn't expect I'd be cranking out 2000 or more a day.
Wizard Rock fans, Brian Malfoy, of "Draco and The Malfoys" is recording a new song each day of NaNo. Listen on their blog.
My friend Kara of A Karabu Creation turned me on to this NaNo vid.
Kara, my niece Jasmine (of Fruity Dragon), and I went to a NaNo cafe party thingy the day before the great NaNo kickoff. This was my first official NaNo event. I was surpised at the number of people there. It was a huge coffee/tea drinking NaNo rally!
We made little plot bunnies. We each recieved a sheet of origami paper where we wrote a plot element to help another writer when he/she gets stuck during the month. We folded them into bunny shapes. You could take one home if you wanted. Otherwise, they kept them for us and while at a write-in you take one if you hit a wall in your story.
Kara, Jasmine, and I each took one. I'm dying to open mine, but I shall resist until dire need.
