NaNo '04 Title: Dead Little Girl (so a working title)
Note: I'm a new user of LJ, so please be understanding if and when I slip up on the etiquette of this place. I won't do it on purpose, I'm just a newbie.
I'll probably post my nanovel on my journal from time to time... without editing it... or even checking for spelling errors. -_-
Email: atsuhita at firecrackersweet dot com
Website(s): for this story? It will be on my writing LJ, in which you must friend to read it when posted (and I'm bad about putting things up there...), but there is no real requirement to be be added: http://www.livejournal.com/users/corpsuper
Location: In the midwest, prefer not to give such details...sorry...
NaNo '04 Title: Holy Spring
Note: This is a story about bottled water. In actuality, it's a magical spring water that, upon consumption, shows people for what they really are. The more you drink it, the greater the transformation, until the point where it becomes permanent. The first sips can be unnoticeable, but even after your first bottle, weird things start to happen.
The story centers on an artist who has just started drinking the water, and, through a series of unfortunate and twisted events, finds himself going from an unhappy lover/designer to a hit visual kei-style (and Engrish spurting) rock star (yes, you read that right). Excitement, romance, adventure, but mostly pure comedy. This story is not really to be taken seriously.
It's off to a difficult start but I'll be into the juicy part really soon. I'm also hoping to illustrate parts of it too, at least get a drawing of the main characters up.
Anyway, it is nice to meet you all and I wish you luck with your novels! I'm hoping I finish mine in time! x_x;

Wai! Wai! Now that we're all pretty familiar with each other... Let's do some fun exercises! *giggles* It's not much, but it's just something for fun and, hopefully, take a break from the insanity we called NaNo. >V<
So, in the reply, please fill in the following~!
2. Word Count so far (you can use the NaNo progress meter at: http://www.feath.com/AFB/meter.php/
3. In 100 words or less, tell us about your story so far!
4. What's the most ridiculous/tragic/shocking thing that happened in your story so far? (in the story or during writing is all ok.)
5. What is your projectile word count by the end of this first week of torture?
6. Number of coffee/tea/chocolate/caffeinated drink consumed
7. How much weight you'll gain by the end of NaNo? (>V<)
8. How many characters do you plan to kill in the story?
9. If your character is sitting right across you, what would you say to him?
10.Get into your character now, any one of them, and say something to you, as the author.
I'll try to think up some exercises every now and then, and if you want to do it, feel free to start one too!! *heart*

Nano '04 title: The Christmas Werewolf
Note: This year, I went with...Gay circus performer turned farmer falls in love with gay werewolf caught chewing on his cattle...or something like that. I like playing with characters, but usually have a distinct lack of ability when it comes to plotting. (Which may or may not be indicated by the fact that when I sat down to write two days ago, he was just a normal farmer. Then, bam, four paragraphs in and he has a huge cougar he's trained that trails after him, and in trying to explain that little quirk away, he ended up as an ex-circus performer with an aversion to being seen as anything but normal. X_x;;) I like to think of it as an improvement over last year since last year I had multiple characters in multiple locations that kept getting all confused. At least I know who the main characters are this time. ^-^;;
Hope everyone's doing better with their counts than I am at the moment! :3
Websites: None but I do have two writing journals - one for fanfic (mimarinrin) and the other for original fic(chalatron)
NaNo '04 Title: Before Dark (working title)
Note: I post my word counts on my regular journal but I post excerpts on my original fiction one. All posts are friends-locked but if you'd like to take a look at what I'm working on, let me know. The piece is actually a prequel to a another project of mine. It's a mixture of fantasy, romance, and horror set in a setting based on medieval Japan. I did NaNo last year, couldn't make up my mind whether I wanted to do it this year or what I wanted to work on. It's really groovy that there's a comm like this. Most of my friends are doing NaNo but none of them will touch slash with a ten foot pole and since that's primarily what I work on, I'm usually lacking in the support department. This place is a fabulous idea! :D

NaNo '04 Title: Eyes of a Child
Note: Nothing really. Check out this journal, I guess. Userinfo has a summary, and the novel will be posted to it, friendslocked and in chapters. I'm going really slowly right now as I just got started tonight, but I am catching up. *G*

Following the crowd, I figured I'd introduce myself.|

NaNo04 Title: The Third War
Note: ...gay mideval fantasy war story... yeah. There's technically a prequel to it but I decided to write the sequel first... Currently only at 2,800 or so words typed. Don't really have a good idea where it's going to end but I'll hopefully figure that out along the way. ^_^'

I got the second post ^^ This is the first time I'm participating in NaNoWriMo. I heard about it for the first time back in around August, but didn't really do any research or decide to do it until today ^^; Following Hieru Youko's example, here's my info:|
Name: Kay (or you can call me Kira, or Kana, or K. Or whatever you want ^^;)
Website(s): http://www.fanfiction.net/~kaychan15 (will probably be setting up a personal website for my writings though); I also post my original fiction in my own lj ( http://www.livejournal.com/users/cocacat15 )
Location: Tigard, Oregon
NaNo '04 Title: Still untitled (I suck at titles >.<)
Note: My story is actually one I thought of awhile ago, and spent a lot of time thinking about the plot and characters and timelines (god, for part of the timeline I still don't know what I ended up with @_@). I never started writing it though, and was starting to worry that I never would. What better excuse than NaNoWriMo? ^^ I started tonight and have 973 words so far. Since I started today that means I have 29 days total for this, which is 1,725 words a day, about. Give or take a word ^^; I...can do this x.x
Hope to get to know the members of this comm. and have a lot of fun both here and with NaNoWriMo itself ^^
|» First Post~!|
First dib on first post! *giggles* Welcome to NaNoWriMo community that's specially made for perverts like us~! *ROFLMAO* >V< So um....... I'll make an intro post for myself. You can follow my style, or just do whatever you want. |

NaNo '04 Title: Frozen Tears (link unknown yet)
Note: I'm looking for plot beta!!! >w< What's a plot beta? Well, it's basically a beta reader except I don't need any grammatical/spelling check, but I need someone to tell me "It's fine", "It's crap", or "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING AND WHAT DRUG ARE YOU DOING?!" *giggles*
Think I need to add anything? *sweat drops*
Admin Stuff: Please rememeber to read the rules. *nod nod* It's not much, but it still need to be said. Any question/concern please feel free to email me. ^_^
