This is my second year doing nanowrimo. It is awesome and I am determined to make this year's novel actually make sense! And for all those 8th graders doing it this year, way to go! I mean, sure I was teased by my history teacher (and everyone else) on the ridiculous amount I wrote for everything, but if I can write a 50,000 word novel, I've just created myself about 10 close friends. So close that they are me! So 8th graders, I've been there, I've heard that, but nothing beats wining nanowrimo. Nothing!
