So many people are doing this nanowrimo that I know personally, it is really rather interesting.

I am starting to wonder what the point of it is ultimately.

The idea is to let go of any constraint and just write like a beserker. No inner editor to discuss things with, no polished story or so. Just go go go, write as if there's no one reading, and have fun with the insanity. Afterwards there is always time to rework, edit and clean things up. :)

I just found this topic.  I started NaNo yesterday!  I'm not writing anything Avatar-themed, but I will be writing along with all of you.  There will probably be some Avatar- and Na'vi-like themes, though.  If you want to add me as a friend, or, ahem, make tsaheylu, it seems, my name there is Talavaria.

inspiration and action have finally come, and I'm quickly catching up with where I should be all thanks to my friends online doing word wars...40 minutes and 2500 words, whee!

My word count is presently at... *drumroll*...3810!  I should be able to at least double tht tomorrow, too.  Wheee!  Sliding into NaNo with a vengence! ;D ;D

Against my better judgment I've joined the madness. ;D Started yesterday, with a word count of 6930. ::)

Not so bad for a first timer, in my opinion. Now I just need to keep the plot (what plot?) rolling......

Another trick that works is doing the opposite of Max Patel's advice to Jake Sully. He said "use big words."
You should use small words. But many of them. It is how I write. It makes writing easier to do and also easier to read for others. (Of course I can always hide behind the excuse that English is not my native tongue. That's Na'vi. Oh, no, it's Dutch. Sorry.)

I find what helps me is dialogue--my characters talk a looooooooot. :P And I mean a lot. I have one page of solid dialogue. :D

HAHAHAHA! Oh yes, mine never stop babbling either most of the time. But that's good. It adds depth to the characters, it makes them come alive and be credible.

I tend to write curious characters.  They ask questions, and try to understand the events of the story.

for me there are three ways I have of expanding story.
1: introspection (I've been using that a lot in my NaNo so far)
2: raunchy scenes (um...not so far!  They're only 17 and 15, not mated yet!)
3: telling a story.  One of the characters finds a reason to tell a long, complicated story to another character (this might happen soon in my story) ;D

Feel free to use any of these!
