NaNoWriMo

Well, it's here! I know some of my friends are already warming up their keyboards, getting ready for the NaNoWriMo challenge. Hats off to you, writers!

I'm not taking up the November challenge, but here's something I stumbled onto. It's called Write or Die. And it's kind of "fun" because you get to chose just how insane you want to be while cranking out the prose. There's the kamikaze zone that should strike fear into any hesitant fingertips. If you stop typing too long, your words start to disappear. OH NO!

Take a look and test it out before the big day and share what you produce under pressure. I'd love to see the results. Bet it's great and has a touch of the frantic. Just what you want to keep us readers turning the pages.

  1. In hs and college, I worked well under pressure. I did most of my papers 1-2 days before deadline and still did well.
    Sometimes a deadline does help me to produce, but man, that sounds brutal!!!

  2. This is really cool! I tried it without many parameters just for fun and think I'll go back again later and do it more seriously. Thanks for sharing!

  3. You are so brave! I'm waiting until I'm sure I have something stored those fingertips to actually plunk down.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
