I'm an authoress from Germany and by now a bit of a NaNo-oldtimer. This is my seventh year and I've won my first six NaNos - sometimes with ease, sometimes by sheer determination and lots of rage inside me. I also participate in JanNoWriMo every year and am a moderator on the JanNoWriMo forums. I can only encourage everyone to join JanNo as well - it's always tons of fun! :D
This year, I'm in hospital and basically have no chance of winning NaNo, but I'll still try to write a bit with speedwriting. I didn't finish my novel last year, so I'll work on that one a bit more. It's the third part of my trilogy which started out with a single novel in 2006 - my very first one during my very first NaNo, FiMo, JanNo and WHRN. I needed super-long to finish it. In 2008, I wrote a sequel because I didn't have enough ideas for anything else and was so clueless that the sequel became known as 'TSTSNB - The Sequel That Should Never Be'. Despite the fact that it was super-sucky to write, it's my longest novel with 180k and its characters have spawned many novels and shortstories of their own.
The greatest challenge for me during NaNo? Despite writing in German, I think in English. The greatest challenge during all writing I do is translating the scenes from my head into a language not even half as beautiful as English. FML.
