This NaNoWriMo thing sound interesting. I had a look and I think I might try it myself. Im with him on the writing thing, I usually run out of steam after about 200 words. I then hit a mental block. My palms sweat and I have to go back and edit those 200 hundred words to my satisfaction, correcting grammer and syntax to the nth degree. Im sure Im in the textbook somewhere. So maybe this is a way to progress - straight in at the deep end. Writing over 1600 creative and original words a day for 30 days straight is going to leave anyone a gibbering wreck. You do realise by day 14 youre going to be grabbing complete strangers in the street and muttering nonsense about plot twists and literary mechanisms like a wild-eyed lunatic? But it sounds like fun. So I might give it a go. Anybody else feel crazy enough to try?

I've thought about it several times in the last four or five years. I even got started one year, but finals got in the way. I probably won't try again this year, but I will get to it, eventually. I have a habit of starting projects, and not finishing them. Right now, I am really trying to finish my Insurrection project before going onto the next one. Only two more levels...

Ack, pressure writing. Been years since i tried it. But personally its where I come out with the best stuff! You start to lose any coherency but start finding the most amazing things appearing on the paper.

I do it with song writing, hence why i tend to write about such strange subject matter - last time i tried to write an entire song in three minutes it turned out to be about a pagoda that could turn into a space rocket.

Good luck Chris.

That sounds like every paper I ever turned in for every class I ever took. There is nothing like starting a 25 page term paper at 11 at night when it is due at 8 the next morning...

Exactly. This reminds me I really should start working on that PhD thesis... :)

So, was the new demo the big thing for midnight 1 November?

Or perhaps there was a big bug so they delayed some release.
