So welcome to the community! Reply here and introduce yourself to everyone else. And I hope you have a great time.
also - if this is your first time here, take a moment to look at the following:
2008 Community Rules - read them if you haven't, and please don't post until you have. It makes us all happy, and keeps the ninja squirrels from attacking needlessly.
2008 NaNo LJ'er Regional Friending Thread!
2008 Pimp and Post Thread - talk about your projects here!
Weekly Plot Help Threads - help your fellow community members with their plots!
Daily Word Count Posts - This is where you post your word counts (except your 50K accomplishment, which you get to shout to the world in it's own post for 5 minutes of fame and glory!)
Daily Excerpts - This is where you post snippets from your NaNo to share with everyone. But keep it within the limits!
all these links are available on the profile page as well as the sidebar links in the community in case you ever need to find them.
EDIT: Talking to support now about recovering the Pimp Thread and the Regional Friends thread. Keep your fingers crossed.
