    I don't really know HOW I'm going to do it, ladies and gentlemen, I've got tons of words to write for SEO clients...I don't exactly enjoy writing for search engines (I'd rather write for human readers, of course) helps me pay my bills, my internet connection, my occasional salted caramel ice cream, books, and body scrubs...

    I'm doing this - I started my serialisation - 1st installment - in the 80s for an erotic magazine. The magazine went under and my project was shelved - altho I named band from the 90s after it - so it's meant to be - here we go...starting Friday....

    I always start a "novel" (well, try to start it anyway) and then things happen and the "novel" becomes a "short story" which becomes a "blog" article which becomes a word file which gets deleted so I can have space to download episodes of NCIS: Los Angeles, Warehouse 13 and The Walking Dead : ( :( : (

      well done - I'm doing it too...

      Don't discount a collection of short stories! The Nobel Prize for literature just went to Alice Munro for her mastery of that form. Short stories don't get the respect they deserve...

        Just joined NaNoWriMo and got this email:

        Greetings and salutations, PinoyWrimos! Welcome to NaNoWriMo 2013. Our big November is coming up in a week's time, and I hope all of your are ready with fingers, computers, and notebooks for the monthlong journey ahead.

        First things first, though: Our Kick-Off Party is tomorrow, Saturday, October 25, 2013! From 2PM to 5PM, the party will be held at Commune Cafe, at Liberty Plaza, 102 H.V. Dela Costa Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. We'll have an icebreaker, a couple of speakers, a Pimp My Plot event, and more! For further details and to RSVP (please do!), go to the event page here. Your MLs will be paying for the venue, as well as drinks and snacks, but if you can donate and contribute to the event, that'd be great.

        Secondly, our Kick-Off Chat will proceed as it always does o n October 31. The chatroom isn't yet active though, so we'll just fire off a NaNoMail as soon as it comes online.

        Finally, give some love to our Facebook page and our forums! Interact with other PinoyWriMos, get updated on informal events, or otherwise just have a blast.

        Hope you all are excited for the upcoming thirty days and thirty nights of literary abandon. I'm already having visions of sleepless, coffee-fueled nights, and writer's block lasting days on end. See you guys at the Kick-off!

        I don't have a Facebook account for privacy reasons so I guess interacting with Filipino NaNoWriMo's won't be possible for me. At any rate, just wanted to let the rest of the world's NaNoWriMo's that we have some pretty good writers in the Philippines. BTW, I recently found out that a Filipino-American, Melissa de la Cruz, is the author of "Witches of East End" which is now a TV series.

  • Carolyn Sams

    This is scary, but if someone's in this with me, I might do it....

  • Alessandra Rizzotti

    I always try this and then fail!!!! I need to be more disciplined.

      Heh, you and me both. Last year I did really well until I got super sick. I'm hoping I can hold it together this year.
