Hi everyone!

*waves*

I'm 29, a long-time student and about to start working in a dairy. This is me in a nutshell: Siana Blackwood - metal chick, goat keeper, prefers cats, treats characters as if they are (almost) real people. Sometimes I delete the 'almost', by the way...

Happy International Towel Day! (It's on the 25th, so don't panic if you live in the past...)

I am 35 years young, will be turning 36 late in the year. So, um, yeah, all you young whipper-snappers stay off of my lawn or something.

Well, it's either hang around us or the teenagers... ;) At least there's coffee here.

Muses must have caffeine in their veins instead of blood. It's the only reason (read: excuse ^_^) I have for needing to drink so much coffee, tea, or soda while writing.

*waves frantically* I'm Becky-the-Kat or just Becky....or just Kat. I've never done Julno but this last november was my first NaNoWriMo as well. It was a ton of fun and I had to find a way to get my fix during the summertime when I'm NOT in college, because I figured I might have a better chance of obtaining a word goal.

I'm 18 and technically a teen, but y'know USA says we are adults. I can [and did] vote and stuff.

S'pose I better check in here...hi, folks! I'm 21, turning 22 in October, and for all the "age is a state of mind" people I'm living proof of that since my mother used to say I was six going on 36. I've always been kind of old for my age...anyway, I'm a recent college grad desperately trying to find someone to hire me so I can start paying off student loans. This'll be my...seventh WriMo, I think? Yeah, it's my second JulNo and I've done five NaNos. I guess if you count ScriptFrenzy this is my twelfth WriMo.

And if you wanna talk about nostalgic shows...forgetting cartoons for a moment, I used to watch Full House and Family Matters and Quantum Leap...

Hi, everyone!

I participated in and won JulNo '09 - those around then may remember me. I'm 26 and turning 27 this month as well as joining the "marrieds" club next Saturday and moving back to Southern California. Things may still be a bit in flux, but I'm looked to get back to working on (and finishing the first draft if it kills me) my JulNo '09 novel. As I type, I'm packing up all of my novel notes for cross-country transport.

I'm an English tutor, word nerd, and cat lover. Look forward to seeing everyone in the crazy month of July!

I'm 23 going to be 24 this year in November and even if i am an adult i sometimes act like a teen! except when i am an adult though sometimes i drink but i do not drink very much even if i am older and allowed to drink though.

However, as for what i am working on will be two novels so far and a fanfic probably, one is a post apocalyptic novel, second one is a Yuri novel, third is an Tin Man fanfic, and i will be working on those next month in July once June is over!

I'm 20. Officially no 'teen' in my age. Don't feel like an adult, but I've got rent to pay and a wage job I hate, plus I spend extended time complaining about the cost of gas...So i guess here is better than the high school thread.

I haven't committed myself mentally to JulNoWriMo, but it's leaning that way. I've got a few ideas, and I'm not sure what to use yet. I don't know what number WriMo this is, but I haven't won since junior year of high school. I'm studying for a degree in Literature and Creative Writing though, so during November it's hard for me to say, "You know what, just for fun why don't I do more school work no one's going to grade and will probably take away from my real work?"

Okay, I confess. I did this for four years. I just graduated with my CW major, and during the time I was in college I never missed a NaNoWriMo or a ScriptFrenzy. Try it! It's fun!

OK...I must be the oldest one on here after a very quick scan through the posts. I'm 43. Please correct me if I'm wrong that I'm the oldest! But I don't act it!! Anyway...

This is my first year doing JulNoWriMo or anything similar. BUT...I do already have two published books. I'm doing this challenge to kick my butt into gear and get the next novel written. I've been soooooooo distracted with net stuff - although everything I've been doing has been for my writing career - promotional and marketing things, massive networking, joining groups, researching self-publishing for my next novel, etc. I'm hoping this challenge forces me into action - like a deadline of sorts.

I'm glad to be here & want to wish each of us the best of luck!
