I figure that most people here like to read fiction, at least in comic format, but does anybody write? And if they do are they one to participate in the annual National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)?

I'll admit that I've participated for the last few years but only just (2011) managed the 50,000 goal. This year is looking like so many before it, a strong start but petering out over the month.

Anybody in the Kingdom take part and do they feel like sharing how this year is going for them?

I didn't even realize there was such a thing. O_O What're the rules for this? Can anyone join? Where's it based out of?

I write all the time, it sounds interesting!

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.


I've never taken part myself, I'm more capable of writing short stories. But I would like to write one year, if only to give it a try.

50k words written in 19 days? Hat off to you. I see people do it all the time on the site but I'll be damned if I can manage a pace that swift.

I write a disgusting amount all the time. It's remarkable I don't have more...

Another year, another DNF.

I blame moving country for my not finishing.

I'm writing a novel in my spare time, although NaNoWriMo isn't really suited to me in terms of the time it takes place (November) because of school.

I hear you. I always used to have coursework due in November, which made writing for NaNo difficult.

For those that find November is always too hectic to write the 50,000 words for NaNo or for those that feel like 50,000 words in 1 month is not enough of a challenge, then I bring good news: the people behind NaNoWriMo bring you two more chances to try the 50,000 words in a month challenge, this time in April and July, with Camp NaNoWriMo.

Check out the website at:
Code:
http://campnanowrimo.org/


So does anybody think they'll try all three months (April, July, November) for 2013?
