NANO Midnight Write-In

How many of you are doing NANO this year? How many of you  (the ones jumping up and down in their computer chairs, wriggling their hands in the know who you are) are hoping, wishing, craving a good start? How many of you are willing to give up your regular sleep schedule for the first night of NANO?

I mean, come on. It's Halloween. You're probably going to be up anyway. Just put down the candy and coctails and do some writing with other members of your friendly online writing community. Or hell, don't put down the candy and cocktails. Who could write a better story than you, writer/Jessica Rabbit-costume-wearer,  all bedecked in your slinky red sequin gown and purple faux velvet gloves you got from that weird little vintage store in the hippy part of town, cocktail and candy in hand (or rather, beside your pen and keyboard)?

Cuz that's the perfect getup for a midnight write-in. Very conducive to creativity, you see. It's the sequins.

Anywhosers, I'm going to begin writing at Midnight, November 1st, CST. I will not stop until at least 2 a.m. Midnight write-in participants will get a prize---a shiny star designed in Paint by me! Very high tech, I know. Please take a moment to catch your breath from the spectacularness of the prize.

Be sure to include your first line or completed word count or the like in the comments below so I can give you your shiny, shiny prize!

Shoo-woop! Happy writing!


  1. I might attempt the midnight write-in, but the Jessica Rabbit costume is flat out. :)

  2. I admire all you NaNoWriMo-ers! Go for it Jes! And enjoy! Maybe I'll attempt it next year, when I'm more organised.

  3. There's no way I'd survive a night of no sleep when having to go to work the next day. So I'm not doing that. LOL. But I'm still pumped about November 1st!!

  4. Thanks, Mish. I'll hold you to that next year comment!

    What, you don't want to start your month with the I'm-a-crazy-sleep-deprived-writer thing going on? Come on Trisha, whyever not? lol *grin*

    I'm one of those few who can rearrange sleep schedules without much difficulty, as long as I KNOW to plan for it. Force me to wake up early or go to bed late unplanned, and all hell breaks loose. lol.

  5. Good luck with NaNo! :)

    I don't think I'll attempt writing that early in the morning; I have to get up in the morning. LOL.

    Thanks for coming by my blog!
