Uh, Hi!


Hi?

Looking forward to another great year of JulNoWriMo! This is the official "chat" thread for all of us, uh, adults.

Come graduation in May, I'll be entering the real world. Yes, I've worked full-time before on internships/co-ops. But this time, it's real.

I haven't quite decided if I'm more excited to be graduating, or more sad.

So how are we all? Everybody have their coffee?

I could use some coffee, thanks.

I feel weird posting in the "adults" forum, but I'm certainly too old for the highschool one. So hello! I too am a first-timer. A little anxious about July, but a lot excited. That will be my designated writing month; the first half of the summer I'm going to dedicate to other projects.

Good luck to everyone, lets get our WriMo on! :D

Hi, i don't drink coffee but i have my coke.
I'm looking forward to July once again as a returning novelist. I just celebrated my birthday the other day and am now 18 so yeah. I've been stuck in a strong debate for my novel The Conspirators and my script possibly turned Novel Sins of the Father, neither of them want to budge from their position on my clipboard but they should work their way out soon

Hey. First timer for JulNoWriMo, here, but it's always great to have an excuse to write as much as possible. I may do a novelization of my Screnzy graphic novel for July. Got the prequel and sequel in the works for both Camps, so may as well. Just to have a set, there. Good luck to anyone doing this. ^_^

So I'm headed into my... 5th JulNo? Wow, hard to believe its been that long. I am still in college but I'm on an internship this summer. Should give me plenty of time to write. Just hope I still can do it, having not really written anything since last Julno. School gets real busy.

I'm great at managing my time, I just don't have enough of it.

Hi, this is my first JulNo in this year. I am an adult who is not going to College anymore. I drink Coffee, Soda, and hot chocolate besides Herbal tea or ice tea and juice. Though i tend to want to lose weight to become healthier this year.

I'll be jumping between this thread and the student thread. I turn 20 in three days and I feel as if I'm going to be eternally stuck in education. XD

I don't tend to drink coffee in the house - on college days it's a must but the rest of the time I stick to a good ol' cup of Tetley tea. Although as I type this post it's a can of Strongbow. Oh well. ^^;

*waves* I'm sadly trying to cut the majority of the soda I drink out of my diet, so it's just water, water, water for me these days. Come JulNo / AugNo time, I'm sure that's going to change a bit, but we'll see.

What's everyone got planned for this year? I'm going with my now tried-and-true July tradition of ZOMBIES. This year in a carnival-type setting... called Carney-Vores. Oh yeah. Super stoked.

I am planning to write a YA Horror/Thriller novel for JulNo. As well i will be working on other genre ones including a GLBTQ one too. So i will be busy planning and writing for JulNo once July comes after June starts and ends.

This is my second time for JulNo and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm thinking about working on one of my Fan fictions. It kinda a debate between Ruby's Story - an One Piece or His Trouble Angel - a Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core Story.

Hi

First time doing JulNaNoWriMo. And feeling a bit nervous about it. But I will be getting some practice in before July. I will be doing another NaNoWriMo in June, so hopefully That will set me up for July. But that's not all, I will also be doing another NaNoWriMo in August. 150.000+ words in 3 months, I think I may have lost my mind.

Hi.

I am really looking forward to July. I'm about to start teacher training to be a maths teacher, which starts in September, so my year is going to be busy. Need to get my writing done by then.




Do not grieve for the story, for it did not truly die. It just faked its own death and changed its identity.

Hello! Third-time JulNoer here. I can't remember if I won in '10 or not so it disturbs me...

I, also, will be doing Zombies with erin, though I have no clue what about. And not with such an awesome title ;).

Kristina I am eternally stuck in education myself. Getting my MPA and working at the university. Not the worst thing in the world. Got to meet some long-time idols because of it (James. Watson's. Brain. Guh.)

Coffee? Oh yeah. A Keurig AND a Starbucks available to me means...bad news.

10: Empty Brocade - 63,660
12: The Reanimation Code - FAIL
13: Only Illusion - 77,050

magicmuggle01: I'm a huge fan of 150k+ summer writing time! I usually take June a little easy [~35-40k], but then go big for JulNo [~100k+] and AugNo!

I don't know what it is about the summer months that make me want to spend all of my time typing up crazy stories.

First timer...am expanding a novel (literary fiction) I started writing when I lived in Paris. An agent in NYC has shown some interest, but said that it is just too short to sell to a publisher as it is. Hoping I can dive back in and be creative AND STICK TO A WRITING SCHEDULE!!!

Hey all! It's my first julnowrimo, though I'm a nanoer from way back. My best bud challenged me this year, and since I've been trying to get her to do a nano for eons, I must rise to said challenge.

I'll be working on an urban fantasy this year. Stealing characters from old ideas and doing a mash-up. Will see how it all pans out.

And Carney-vores??? AWESOME!!

I think this is my 3rd? time doing JulNo, still haven't won. ;)

I'm joining the zombie crowd, writing an offshoot of my other zombie novel. It'll probably be Zombies in Space 2, because I'm completely unoriginal with titles. :P

I have my very own coffee maker this year! I'm set.

I will be working on a multitude of novels and Fanfics for July. Boy, do i love multitasking its fun plus it keeps me from being bored.

[Edited on 6-16-2012 by marielaurent2221]



My laptop is going to be fixed soon after it is in the shop to be sent to the company once my Mom pays the shop to send it to them Toshiba company for them to fix my computer if the people at the computer shop cannot fix it themselves. I hope my laptop gets fixed soon.



What i wanted to do is tell everyone about my situation with my laptop just in case anyone did not get the message. My laptop needs to be fixed seeing as it cannot open all the way and there is a huge gap in the seam of where the screen is. I hope it can be fixed soon since right now all am i doing is using the desktop.



Nothing is bringing me to be stressed now as of lately thinking about packing more. Including my ceramics to get things done faster to start moving stuff in on the 23rd of this month. Does anybody feel like me that doing too much is too much to do with not enough time on my hands.



I am not stressed today. Though i have been bothered a lot by one of my relatives. I cannot wait to start packing to move into our new place after the 23rd of this month.

Hey, Marie! Please edit your posts rather than posting 5(+) times in a row - wait until someone else has posted after you to make new ones. Thank you! :)

Are you going to be settled in your new place by the time JulNo starts?

Hi everybody, third time JulNo'er here :) It's the first time I post in this thread though (I feel so immature, yet actually being an adult for three years already ^^).

Euhm, I'm trying to finally get that story written I planned last year, for NaNo and in May. Not really sure in what category I should place it though. Yes, I'm hopeless . . . :)
