Princess Katie, the Random Hot Pink Minotaur (safeandsound) NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month and t is a challenge to write 50,00 words in one month for a book. That is 1,667 words a day. Technically, it started yesterday and I should have said something about it a month ago, but anywho, is anyone in it? I figured that we could put our username on here and help eachother make it through the process of writing a book...

My username is waterfalls501.

I'm doing this next year. I'm too late to do it.


message 7: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth (elizabethnovak) Yeah, sadly, to much to do. But I've been writing short little things.


message 8: by Robyn (new)

Robyn S. (thunderscape-7) Awwwww, sadness. :(
But I understand. Novels and keeping up with a story can be hard (especially when life gets in the way)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 66 comments Hey guys, I'm Sandy Crow on nano =) add meeeee!!!


message 10: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 66 comments Cool! I've never even gotten to a hundred pages on any story...I just started a few a long time ago and over time they kinda got dropped. It's been at least a year since I seriously worked on any story, so my nano novel is really something new to me =)


message 11: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 66 comments Well, that is still awesome lol. My stories are so pathetic I always made the font really big so I could feel like I got more done. Haha but for nano I made myself leave the font at 12


message 12: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 66 comments showoff :D lol i guess it depends what font you use. I HAAAAAAAAAATE times new romans or whatever. I use anything but that.

message 17: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandycrow) | 66 comments I used to love Comic Sans, now for some reason it just feels...messy or something. I'm weird :P Lol, I use something called Book Antiqua and I like it because it looks so old-fashioned and it fits with my fantasy stories.

Cool. Sounds like an interesting font. I don't think I have that one in Open Office. I did find a really cool font that I use for the title page and my chapter headers it's called: Reprise Stamp.

*checks Microsoft Word and sighs* Noooope we don't have it. I like Mistral for titles, it looks so cool! Although my nano book doesn't have a title page or even chapters or anything cuz I don't want to play with fonts too much yet. It's too distracting to me, cuz I'm definitely one of those style-over-substance people. :D

Tessa | 107 comments So, did any of you finish your novels? I think nano is really cool; maybe I'll do it next year!


message 22: by ada (new)

ada (adagee) MERRY CHRISTMAS!


Princess Katie, the Random Hot Pink Minotaur (safeandsound) Marry Christmas!

And no, I didn't finish any novels.


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

Are any of you doing it this year?


Princess Katie, the Random Hot Pink Minotaur (safeandsound) Maybe. Is anyone doing script frenzy? It's like NanoWriMo but you write a 100 page script instead.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

No. Actually, I haven't heard of it until now. Cool!

Stephanie (elephantgirl) | 37 comments I totally failed at NaNoWriMo this past month. :3
