I'll have to remember my password for nano mainly because the password reset function doesn't seem to work ... darn thing ... these people cannot even get their CORS issues sorted out ... Time for a support ticket.

I had to reset mine, too! But it worked for me? So... I dunno, their "new" website is still pretty meh.

as i mentioned on the discord - I'll be twice a rebel this year.

since my plot is just not all-consuming and pestering me up the wazoo this year, I'll be participating in NaKniSweMo - National Knit a Sweater Month. the idea is similar to NaNo - knitting a sweater with 50,000 (or more) stitches.

I'm first a rebel because I'll be crocheting my sweater, and second a rebel because, as of now, I have an initial count of only 15,740 stitches!
(there are some rows where I have an exact count, but there's some clusters of 6 stitches, so I don't know how much the stitch count will go up, but not that much!)

so my NaNo this year is actually a NaCro!

Going to give it a try again think I have enough of an outline. I might stand a chance at making it. I need to work on a schedule, so real life doesn't mess up anything.

So I started, but not with the story I originally had planned I'll need to change the title.
Too bad we don't have that neat progress bar anymore, I really miss it ...

Why does this thing say "Writing has not started" when it is clearly already the 1st of November AND I already added words to the count?!

Edit: Ah, it finally updated that part as well. This site just cannot keep up with me!

I got started yesterday after midnight so I reached my word count for today already. I'm planning to do my word count for tomorrow tonight, or at least part of it, so that I'm a little bit ahead of things should I have a day where writing is difficult.

Good job getting your first day done @Flederfalle! How is everyone else doing?!

@trystan Oh gosh yes... I really do miss the old site.
