I readily acknowledge the masochism of this plan, but I'd like to try a NaNoWriMo-like project again, preferably with better planning and a full outline this time. (I do not do well as a pantser, especially when my primary concern is the word count, not the story.) But this November is a no-go between LSAT studying, catching up on my Goodreads challenge and life in general. On the bright side, I finally found a site that seems to have similar stats/deadlines to NaNoWriMo's system, which I liked. I haven't fully tried it out since I don't have any current projects, but if anyone's interested, it's called myWriteClub.
