I'm at 4135 words.

I wrote 3385 of those tonight.

[ profile] ghettopeach, [ profile] orelle_peredhil, whoever else is local to me: we should meet up and write and have shenanigans. I want to get a whole lot written this weekend, so. Yes. Good times. I know an awesome froyo place around here.

I'm Kiaxet on the NaNo website. Friend me.

And I still need to 1. sleep off this cold and 2. go to work tomorrow, so I am going to bed. Further bulletins - about Halloween, about [ profile] universejuice's visit, about everything - as events and time warrant.

Favorite lines of the night:

There was something wild, poetic, and utterly stupid about fighting in the rain. He’d heard people talk about stormy battles as though they were some great romantic thing, like the lightening crackling across the sky and the thunder rolling all around was some great majestic wonder and that it made the battle that much better. In truth, rainy fighting was wet and cold and completely miserable. If Terra summoned his armor, his visibility would be all but shot and he’d be heavier, making it that much more difficult to move over the soggy ground, so for now, he was without that extra layer of protection. The lightening arcing across the sky only made him even more aware of the fact that his Keyblade was long and made of metal and that he was inordinately fond of the overhead strike, which left it pointing up at the sky – if only for a split second – more often than not. The thunder was distracting every time it boomed and made listening for his opponent, which blended well into the high grasses and overcast gloom, that much more difficult. The rain was cold and made his clothes chafe and his weapon slippery, and it was only by the grace of God and a good pair of gauntlets that it hadn’t gone flying out of his grasp already. In short, no matter how much poets and swooning girls seemed to love it, fighting in the rain sucked.

Woo! I'm only at a little over 3k, but I think I'm going to try and bring it with me to work tonight and see if I don't have time to get something done.

I'll NaNo!friend you tonight, when I get back home, I'm iki_teru over there too ♥ Happy writings!

Aaw,I won't be available tonight or tomorrow, taking the writing over to the boyfriend's house but I WILL be adding you to aim so I can pester you at a yet to be determined time ♥ I'll be available Saturday night though?

From: [identity profile]

I love it.

Ugh, NaNo is being like pulling TEETH this year. I'm at the goal so far, but only just barely, and only because I broke down and added author rants early this year. My novel may wind up being, like, 85% author rants.

But yes, we should get together to write. Friday's completely open for me, as is most of Saturday, and Sunday afternoon. I'm also out closer to you on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Let me know what works.

Sounds fun! I will also try to make it to the communal Word War.

Over 3000 words in one night? Your secret, what is it?
XD I keep finding myself writing bits that I know I'll probably just cut if I ever come to post it.

Also it's been raining here all day and I couldn't agree with Terra more. Not that there's been all that many battles, but yeah.

That sounds like a pretty good way to get it done! I might have to try it out. Have you ever tried out write or die? I think that's probably where I'm going to have to go to catch up!

Oh god, editing. I'm not sure if I even want to think about that now. But yeah, letting people know you're alive is always a good thing. Is yours AU or normal-verse? (Is there a word for the opposite of AU? Non-AU? U? Something like that.)

I'm not sure the opportunity will come up, but who knows? I'll let you know if it ever does! XD

V nice, v nice, but must lift editor's hand and say that lightening = lightning. Pet peeve of mine, sorry. *hides*

And I agree with [ profile] ghettopeach completely. Maybe bc I'm not going from scratch this year, but I just can't get into the groove; I'm only at 2300 as of last night, and who knows how much I can plod through tonight. Sigh. Plot, plot, I'm not good at PLOT, and I am unfortuantely in the v plotty portion of last year's novel. Hence why it's been sitting untouched for 11 months (aide from all the wedding stuff). Oy gevalt. Anyway, as far as writing shenanigans are concerned - this weekend the in-laws (hee!) are in town, and next weekend I'm off in the Bay - sorry! Maybe we can get together sometime during the week. Come over on your way home from work! We can order in Chinese or something and scribble away. Esp since's Matt's doing this too. It could be fun! Best of luck with keeping your wordcount up!
