Stealing a post idea from itsinthebookde.blogspot.com by making a list, to the best of my memory, of all my NaNo attempts and start doing yearly archive post of what progresses I have done.
This one is my first year ever. There was not much planning involved. I did hit 50k with the help of writing 25k words on the very last day. When it came to the last second I failed to register the 50k words on time. Better to write everyday, not just on the last week. I have created a look-alike book which so far is still in first draft. Barely editable or readable.
NaNoWriMo 2009:This one was about a fox pup that grew up in a marsh with the help of friends. This one was 50.1k words long. In the revision it was cut down to 25k words long. Better planning and timing this time around. There were some really great details I had in there.
Had a very busy schedule and this novel had 137 words exact written. A toss-away. Nevertheless I did do SOME participating here.
What most of my blog posts from now til December will be about. Vote here if you want more solid updates than what I had been doing in my previous years: no updates. Yes I am a lame writer but working on improving my skills in very artistic manners.

General idea for this year's NaNo novel: The main character will be a sea creature that, despite its size, has great powers and potential. However it is on its own to figure out what it wants to do.
Good thing about this novel is I can literally draw out this character... okay a novel is writing not made up of a bunch of drawings so maybe images will be a good start.
