NaNoWirMo

Other wise known as National Novel Writing Month. This is a very fun event in November. It's really international but that doesn't have the same ring. Pretty much this event is about writing a 50,000 word novel in the one month of November. I did attempt this last year but I didn't quite make it. Actually I was way off. Of course this year I'm going to try again! If any of you enjoy writing I would defiantly suggest you do too. It's a while away but you might want the time ahead.

Edit: I feel a need to make a few things clear. See after the break.

This is a competition against one's self, there is no real prize other than the satisfaction that you did it. So if you cheat, you're only cheating yourself and no one else really cares. This event is for the fun of it and the love of writing. You can even meet up with people around your area in the forums. You can setup a meet-up at a Starbucks or something and just all write together. It might sound boring but there are those of us that love that chill kind of atmosphere when hanging out.

There is a lot about what it is in the NaNoWriMo FAQ page.

  4. The thing is you don't need to be any good. Check out some of my story time posts. I have a way to go before I can be considered a good writer. This about writing for the love and fun of it. Anyways you can't get better at something without practicing it!

  7. I don't think I would attempt writing something like that writing is just not my thing.

  8. I remember I was going to join this thing a few years ago, but I never did. I might actually do that this year, since it sounds like fun. I like writing stuff anyway; another shot at fiction would be cool.

  11. It takes me forever to write a 5,000 word paper. This would be cool to try but I have non-stop papers to write for school all the time.
