NaNoWrimo Anyone?

Post by PolosElite23 on Tue 15 Oct 2013 - 22:52

NaNoWrimo AKA: National Write a Novel Month is in November. The goal is to write 50,000 words in a month. I did it last year and didn't finish, but am hopeful this year.

Anyone interested in doing it too? The website is: http://nanowrimo.org/ full rules and stuff is there. Its fun and quite a few authors have written published works for this. Plus its good practice. Finishers also get prizes. This year CreateSpace (TM) is offering Two free paperback copies of a finished book for NaNoWriMo winners!

Anyone interested in it too?

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Do note that any fanfiction doesn't count. 

That being said, sounds like fun, so I'm gonna go for it. Am I gonna succeed? Not likely, since finals are literally the first week of December. BUT! I can make headway, right? Right.

Count me corrected then, I guess. Why can't we post anything that breaks copyright if ff is cool? 

Eh.

Eh.

Just don't write one word 50,000 times. That'd be stupid, and it's not a novel; just a collection of one word.

good luck to the three of you. If you get stuck, just remember the NaNoWriMo motto: "Plot is optional. Word count is all."

NaNoWriMo is a great way force yourself to produce that crucial first draft of that great story you just can't seem to get around to writing. I've never participated, but if I ever suffer from writer's block around the first of November some year, I may give it a shot.

Mario Bossi would make a better handler than Marco Toni. Come to think of it, so would Christiano.

Elizaveta didn't jump - she was pushed.
.
Sofia was pregnant. It would have been a boy.
