Stephanie: Not this year. Too busy. But I'm hoping the "everyone's writing" atmosphere will still rub off on me. There should be a National Oh My God Just Write Something Month. That's what I'm participating in.

Kristan: LOL! Yeah, I'm not participating either, but I love the energy.

I've tried NaNo a couple times in the past and never won. For me, the focus on word counts (and the late-night scrambles that deprive me of sleep!) really puts me in the wrong mindset for writing.

Sarah: NoNaNo. I haven't ever participated because it's just not my thing. Drafting and discovery is my favourite part of writing. I like to take my time and put off revising for as long as possible. :)

Ingrid: I actually toyed with the idea of participating this year because I've been revising for so long and I really miss drafting. Then I remembered how crazy-busy I am and decided to keep my sanity through the holidays. But I might create my own "NaNo" month later this winter and use it to finish my latest manuscript. I need some kind of deadline! 

What say you, readers? Any NaNoWritMo writers out there? How's it going?

I'm not participating but I am definitely cheering for those who are-I plan to lurk on twitter a bit and hopefully tweet some sympathy throughout the month!
