I officially joined the site in 2005, but I wrote NaNo at least two years prior without a support group or online help. I now take full advantage of both, as well as a wonderful local writing group.
2005 I attempted to write the main storyline of Kiro no Matsuro and just barely won with 50k words.
2006 - I tried to continue my 2005 work on Kiro no Matsuro, but failed to reach more than 10k.
2007 - I changed directions and tried to rewrite an older novel of mine, Falling Towards Heaven. I struggled and barely won with just 54k words.
2008 - I tried another rewrite, this time an old vampire novel with the working title of Strahd. This novel came very easily and I reached 50k just past the halfway point in the month. Encouraged, I attempted 100k and reached that by the 25th day. Then I set my goal to finishing the novel, and ended up with a finished novel of 125k words.
2009 - A sequel to the popular Strahd in the works, but distracted heavily by Falling Towards Heaven I switched to that and barely made 50k.
2010 - Another attempt at Strahd's freaking sequel, again barely winning, but I stayed on task this time!
2011 - From the depths of Kiro no Matsuro emerged Jenii's backstory demanding to be written.
More details about all of these works can be viewed on my website, which is getting a serious overall in 2011 - during November no less. Fickle muse.
