Re: 2013 NaNoWriMo

I'll be participating in some capacity, likely a 20,000 word goal on my current project rather than starting something new. I can't afford to stop everything and do NaNo, but I would definitely like to give as much effort as I can!

Beta/CP for short story

I have a twenty-page short story that needs two or three thorough pairs of eyes. It is a literary story about a ballet dancer. Please PM me if interested. I am ideally looking for a beta reader, but I can return the favor by critiquing your story if you need! I have a lot of copy-editing experience....

Re: Official NaNoWriMo 2012 Thread

I have only just passed 15,000, which is a bit disappointing, but I did know from the start that I would not have time to make to 50 over the course of the month. I am aiming for 20,000, which is doable for the rest of the week... December is a better month for NaNo for me, and I am hoping to write ...

Re: When do I tell someone I have written something?

I didn't tell people I was a writer for the longest time. Obviously my immediate family knew, and a few close friends, but besides that, I was not so much embarrassed about the fact that I wrote as I was humble about my abilities and the prospect of it actually going somewhere further than a hobby. ...

Re: Official NaNoWriMo 2013 Thread

I definitely need a post like this to keep me accountable for my word count. Thanks Sommer! You're the best. I recently deleted my Twitter because I found it more of a distraction than a helpful tool, so I won't be doing the Twitter sprints, obviously. Sharing my word counts here will be helpful tho...

Re: How many Characters do you have?

Interesting question! My current project has a large cast: 5 POV characters and numerous minor characters. I like to give all the main characters surnames, but I don't necessarily use them all, and I give the minor characters names only if I need them. A coffee shop barista doesn't need a name if th...

Re: NaNoWriMo 2012 - Prep

I've been debating whether I'll have the time or not to do NaNo this year, as the last two years I tried and failed horribly, even though I had plenty of time. But you know what? I think if I have somebody (or a forum thread :D ) to hold me to it, I will be able to get my nose to the grindstone and ...

Re: The Coffee Shop - OCTOBER

Wow Margo! That's fantastic! I feel like I am going to have slightly more time in October to write than I did in September, but then again in September I thought I'd have time, and it turned out I didn't... I'm not expecting much in way of word count in October and November, so that means no NaNo fo...
