National Novel Writing Month 2017
« on: October 16, 2017, 08:26:29 am »
NaNoWriMo's coming up and I thought it would be fun to spread the word here.

This started in 1999 for a small group of friends, and it's now a big phenomenon for authors all over. From November 1st to November 30th, participants have the goal of writing a 50-thousand word novel.
Details can be found on the official site.

I'm not great at writing, but I plan to take part. I don't think I'll do the full word count; I'm too busy to dedicate that much time. I'm just gonna use this as an excuse to fully flesh out the backstory for my alternate fursona, Crucible. I've been doing some prep over on Toyhou.se; my working title is "Like Nighthawks."

Is anyone here participating?
What's your storyline?
Any chance you'll be sharing it online? (I'll totally read it.)

I participated last year. And I did get to the 50,000 word limit. But it makes me cringe how long, drawn-out, rambling, boring, and frankly childish my writing was just last year. I think I deleted the original file that had the novel in it. I don't think I'm gonna participate again. I really haven't had a good idea for a story much less a novel recently.
