irrational alchemical obfuscation

NaNo friends tracking

I'm just going to list links here to the statistics page for everyone I know who's participating in NaNoWriMo, so that I (and other interested parties) can track the progress of our novels throughout the month. Now alphabetized! Last update: 11-4-04.

baxil: stats; story link has been cleverly and secretly posted to this journal elsethread

balinares: stats
elynne: stats, story at elynnenanowrimo (friends-only)
eredien: stats
kadyg: stats
kaijugirl: stats, story at writeonthewing (friends-only)
polyrhythm: stats
rowandoll: stats
zastrick: stats

Everyone else who's writing: What's your NaNoWriMo username and/or userID? If you're posting your story, where? Add a comment or otherwise contact me and I'll update the post accordingly.

kadyg would like to state for the record that she has a "no public angsting" policy on her novel.

Also also: Thanks to a late burst of passionate and near-unanimous voting here, the $19 will go toward dinner with kadyg. I'll let her write up the details of the meal though. ;)

Another old friend succumbs! :D

Welcome, johnstanton, to the wide world of Livejournal! Now that you've finally given in, we can send in the brain-sucking robots birds will sing and flowers will bloom and you'll be able to keep up with the rest of the old Seattle crew.

And on a totally unrelated and completely random note, I'd like to ask the fellow NaNoWriMers tracking my progress not to get discouraged at my 8,000-word output on Day 2. Truth is, due to my odd schedule I was able to start off the monthlong project with my two weekend days and get a real initial boost rather than needing to struggle through five workdays before being able to sit down for some proper writing time like the rest of you.

I'm going to have very little time over the next few days, so don't worry, you'll catch right up.

... Hmm. Hey, J-dawg? You interested in this NaNoWriMo thing? I think you'd get a kick out of it ...

Dear all of my non-American friends:

I would like to formally apologize on behalf of my nation.

Even if Ohio turns for Kerry once the late returns are counted, it shouldn't have been this close. And even if Kerry wins, our current president's party has maintained their control over the House and Senate.

This election hasn't provided the world with much to celebrate.
