I'm just doing it because I've never participated before, and I want to see if I can do it. At fifteen thousand nine hundred so far, I think I can. Awesome! Plus, I wrote a nearly ten thousand word story up from scratch in something like four days a week before that. Typically I don't finish nearly that quickly.

The ten thou one actually sortof-kindof-maybe sets up the NaNo. Or at least hints at it. If things get really, truly desperate in the last two days, I might tack it on in front. But that seems rather cheesy, so it's Very Very Last Resort stuff, and only if I absolutely need it.

My only doubt is whether or not I should be putting it up somewhere as I write it. Because another harddrive crash would bite.

*adds you*

If your main concern is offsite backup, try copying and pasting to Google Docs. My experience is that posting to private entries in LJ works as a last resort, but gets annoying as it clutters up your private journal view.

Huh. All right, I'll try that!
