NaNo is going to be hard. I will only be able to write half the needed words on the weekends, and the 26th will be without any words because of my daughter's birthday. I found a great tool for deciding how many words I need to write the next day. It's by David Gale, and it's a calendar that re-calculates every time you enter how many words you plan to write or how many you wrote. Simple to use and great to see how hard I need to work. Check it out.
I'm looking forward to NaNo. I might even post more regularly. Weir as it may sound, doing non-NaNo-things improves my ability to keep up with my wordcount.
Good luck to all participants,
