I'm not, but curious if anybody else around here is.

I was going to. Even had a project.
But then drama invaded in my life. Not in a good place emotionally to even think about working on it.

Well, I actually signed up on the 1st and that's as far as I got. I have never used their website so dont' know at all what I'm doing when I'm on there. Are we supposed to log things there or just use that sight as an excuse to write and then keep track for ourselves. ?

I don't even know. I've only used their site one year (many years ago) and at that point it was pretty much just you putting in your word-count figure into your profile. I assume it's a bit more sophisticated than that now, but I don't know.

The site is a community of sorts. You have regional groups of people who organize write-ins and such so you can get together and write together and support each other during Nano.

I'm 11k words in, am behind & made no friends to write with as of yet...it's more about making myself write on one project, everyday.

I'm very capable of finding excuses not to write... very good at it... but I must say that November for me is just the oddest month to try to write every day... December would be worse. I think I would be more inclined to do a month of writing in March...

Maybe I need to start my own writing month... March Writing Madness... MWM... or MarWriMad... LOL!!

I didn't even realize it was November until around the 15th. And now I can't believer it's almost December. I guess that's a no from me.
Is this my reality or yours?
