NaNo Friending Meme!  
NaNo starts in exactly 23 hours and 30 minutes (in EST). Are you guys ready? I'm not. D:

The buddies feature is finally up on the site, so I figured we could have a friending meme to add each other on there.



Have fun!


Edit: and if you feel like pimping the meme, here's a code for you.

Since I'm writing Chapters 13-14 in Trilogy's 2nd Book for NaNo, lots of fun stuff has already happened. But I'll be jumping straight into a major plot point. Have it all planned (even some of the dialogue). Looking forward to writing it properly.
Do you plan on posting any excerpts anywhere other than on the NaNo site?
Nope. Too paranoid. NaNo excerpts will be very short.

Name: Li
Age: 25
Country/state: Canada

NaNoWriMo:
NaNoWriMo profile link: hotaruanne
Genre: Science-fiction---not hardcore sci-fi, more like fantasy/sci-fi or space opera (I'm still learning the different subgenres of sci-fi even though I grew up watching the genre)
Synopsis: It's hard to explain. It's basically about someone who finds herself outside of her own timeline and is finding a way to get back (and back to her loved ones). So yeah, time travel is involved xD
What scene(s) are you looking forward to the most? It's divided to two parts so I'm looking forward to writing the second part when things start getting pretty crazy/messy---high emotions and all that good stuff xD
Do you plan on posting any excerpts anywhere other than on the NaNo site? Don't know, haven't thought of that actually *blushes*

Nice! I'm from Toronto; same here, I'm always like "Whoo, another Ontarian, yay us!" when I find others here on LJ. By the way, I hope it's okay that I added you on NaNo? =)
en rastlös känsla förtär mig i natt.skagboys on November 1st, 2011 02:25 am (UTC)
Haha, when I was at Tim Horton's, writing replies to posts from this comm, someone would ask what I'm doing, and be all "What is a Life Journal?"

I'm sure my face was one of the many Tumblr memes ;D


And sure thing, add away here or there!

I always found time travel to be an interesting sci-fi aspect (especially when the writers do such an amazing job at telling the story with all the twists and turns). Anyways, sure you can add me at NaNo, I'll add you back =)

Another SciFi writer?

I'll be sending you a buddy request. :)

Your synopsis sounds interesting :3 Also, what do you think of Figment? I was looking into joining but.. I'm unsure, haha, especially since I'm just coming back after a 5 year hiatus (people stole my work, I got tired of it).
sassy_cullen on November 1st, 2011 07:35 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I'm really enjoying writing it so far, but whether I'll be saying that next week I don't know! :D

I quite like Figment, I haven't posted any really important/favourite pieces of writing on there, but I've posted quite a bit (I'm Katie-Rebekah on there).

Do you plan on posting any excerpts anywhere other than on the NaNo site? Maybe. It depends on how it goes. If I think it's unmitigated crap, probably not. If I think it's only a little bit crap, I'll post excerpts under a filter on my LJ.
