I've sounded the call on my own facebook and in the nanowrimo community, and by my count there are now 22 Let's Do It!s and 4 Maybes.
There is also the official JaNoWriMo forum, which I'm not actually a member of. I don't do well with a ton of different boards, which is why I gravitated to livejournal. I'm really glad to have found so many people here who are willing to do it with me though. Thank you! I hope I can stick with it all month this time. I've done this once before several years ago, but I only lasted a week or two.
I thought it would be nice if we had an intro post and maybe brainstorm some ideas about sprints or word wars or anything else we can do to egg each other on. Here's a little intro template, but feel free to bypass that if it's not your thing. I guess I'll fill mine out in the comments.
Have you done Na/JaNoWriMo before:
Tell a bit about yourself:
What would be most helpful to you during JaNo?
Looking for new LJ friends or Keep it to the community:
I'm pretty flaky during any write-like-mad month, so I can't promise to adequately keep up with daily posts at all. I'll give it a good go though. If anyone else wants to jump right in and help get this wagon rolling, please feel free! My schedule is iffy since I have little ones. I'll do my best to stick with it as much as I can all month though!
