6 pages a day, everyday of November. Meh. Sounds fun, but scary at the same time.
I'LL DO IT!
I came too late to participate in last year's NaNoWriMo, but I gleefully watched people from ZU drop like flies. The Wii is going to be out about half way through my little novel; I'll do the best I can to balance my recreation.
Oh, and guys? It's still mid-September. There's more than a month to go 'til NaNoWriMo starts. What's with the mega-early thread? You'd probably just drag in just as many people if you'd waited until mid-October.
Having said that, I'll be trying for it too. I know I failed spectacularly last time (barely more than half way), but I'm actually trying to be organised this year. The hardest part of that has been not starting my story yet - I've had the idea for at least two months now.
Okay, okay, so I jumped the gun as well. So what?
Anyway. This is just a random half hour of 'net time before work (traffic made me miss the bus). I'm still not here.
Two months? I've had the idea boiling inside me for almost a year now. I even have the title ready...

Hmm...I think I'm totally going to give this a shot. I've had random ideas in my head for a little while about a novel I want to write, so maybe I'll use this as a way to jumpstart that. The problem is going to be forcing myself to sit down and actually write something everyday.
With the ammount of dreadful dialogue these people deem necessary, I don't think with proper spacing, they're going to have a problem racking up six pages.
It's not so much the way people use dialogue that bothers me, but the amount they use it in comparison to everything else. There's nothing that makes reading more annoying than when you have two or three pages of short paragraphs consisting solely of dialogue, and you have no idea what the people are doing as they talk. People do stuff while talking! :XD
Hm... I've been contemplating it... And though I know I shall most likely fail miserably, I think it would be a good experience for me. Plus, I have a billion ideas just swirling around my head waiting for me to write them down. Therefore... I'm in too!
I'm totally up for pip's idea, Zelda-related or not. :O
I'll definitely be tossing my heart and soul into the NaNoWriMo... up until November 19th. After TP comes out, I really can't offer any guarantees. ^_^
Hehehe. What totally wins about this, at least for me, is that the Wii and TP come out December 7 in Australia. I don't have to fear being sidetracked by an awesome new game during the writing period.
Of course, I'll have Perfect Dark at my beck and call for whenever I take a break, but that's different. I already know what that game's about and it shouldn't make me procrastinate in lengthy chunks.
Needless to say, I'm in for this.

I think that's a little too much, at least for computer pages. A standard Word document set at default equates to about 1,000 words a page (real writing). 6 pages, or 6,000 words a day equates to around 200,000 words for the whole month. Of course, writing with pen and paper is a little different, unless you have miniscule writing.
Personally, I know I'm not going to have any trouble whatsoever churning out 50,000 words in a month. I'll be going for around 200,000, myself.
