Good luck to everyone who is participating this year.  This is my first year and I'm really excited.  I recieved my e-mail from Chris Baty and I'm fired up but I have not a single idea in my head!!!  I think I'll do a mental brainstorm tonight and see what characters/storyline I come up with. 

Who else is doing this and are you ready?  Will you be starting at Midnight or just some time tomorrow?  I'm curious...

Okay, I'm not sure if it's caffeine or actual motivation, but I've gotten 3191 words in this morning.  I've been working on a plot for a few weeks and got up at 5:30 to get started this morning.  I've a vague idea of where it is all going, but it's exciting to see it unfold. 

I homeschool my ds10 and we recently started doing school later in the morning, so it gives me a little more time in the morning to let my mind and fingers wander.  Okay, actually have to start school soon. Gotta go.

evening update:  up to 4270, finished two chapters. I think I'm getting a really good handle on the run on sentence. LOL.

This is my first year, too, and I don't have a single, solitary idea about where to begin.  I'm going to get off these forums right now and just start writing something.  Hey, Paula, can I have some of your words?  Good luck, everyone.

This is my first year doing it, and I'm having so much fun! LOL I'm forcing myself not to redo anything I write, to just write. It's been intersting! :D

Just signed up, seems like fun and I might get something done, I'm glad my computer got fixed in time for this!
