So I'm thinking about doing NaNo this year! It'd be my first effort, but I'm beginning to believe that nothing else will ever force me to finish the WIP I made the mistake of posting on AO3 last year, and I can't bear the shame of ending another year without a new work posted!

People who have done NaNo before, tell me about it? Or just urge me on with false assurances of easy success, whichever. :D

It's great fun even when losing! I like outlines, I discovered.

Could be! I found I got more written when I did the "and I need a scene where X happens, and then that leads to Y, and I have plot point N here, how are we ... oh, maybe if we go through M?" thing, even if I couldn't predict exactly where it was going to go. Coloring in was always easier for me than doing the whole thing at once. YMMV!

The first (and only) time I did NaNo, I was young and had a lot of free time. I found that using one of those word count calendar things helped plus the fact that I was doing it with friends so we motivated each other to write.
