I just pulled Aug 1 out of my ass. When I checked it on the calendar, it happened to be on a Monday, go figure. Check to see if that works for you and let me know. If not, well, we can always move it. ...

August sounds good. Hell, let's start on the first. How's that sound?

How long are we writing, a week? This is to develop a short story, right?

I apologize for all the questions, I just want to ...

Currently, I don't have any short story ideas. I've got two novel-length ideas though. I'm close to starting one and mapping out the other. The second, I'd like to save for NaNoWriMo.

If I were to ...

I vote for a week in the Summer when we can sit out by the pool with a nice cold beverage...preferably one with alcohol. Wink

Of course, I may do that even if no one else wants to join in.

You may be onto something there, zen. A short story week would be great. Perhaps its brevity is what's so appealing. Smile And, yes, apparently I have multiple evil twins running around out there. Doppel ...

Ah, good old Dahlonega! I enjoy passing through Dahlonega on my way to Helen. Although it has been a long time since I've gotten to that side of the state since I am living in Rome now.

Actually, zendao42, I have a writer friend who also is turned off by NaNoWriMo, but for other reasons. He said that if it were longer (say 2 months instead of 1) with a more reasonable word count (say ...

I added you as a NaNo buddy, CarbonFragments. Smile

I must admit, I probably came on a bit strong with my first impressions of NaNoWriMo. I guess it's because I feel rushed by it. Also, I only outline ...

I've sat on the sidelines during the previous NaNoWriMo because I was already working on another project. I was planning on sitting out this year, too, because I wrapped up the first draft of my secon ...
