  1. OMG I can't believe we're already past the halfway point for the month! I hope those that are participating in Nano are having a great time and that everyone is taking care of themselves!
  2. I'm in the same boat @Eskili! My move kinda put a hold on my prep for the month, but I'm planning to watch lots of authortube (writers on youtube) and participate in a lot of writing sprints to work toward hitting my goal of 50k! Also, happy writing everyone!
  3. To answer your question, Nanowrimo is short for "National Novel Writing Month"! It is an organization that helps promote writing, creativity, and productivity through community and events! Technically, the "official" novel writing month is November (where writers of all walks of life attempt to write 50k+ words in 30 days), but Nanowrimo also hosts "Camp Nanowrimo" at different points in the year to keep everyone engaged and motivated to write until November comes back around! The two camps off the top of my head are April and July! If you want to check out their website, you can do so HERE! I'm also happy to answer any other questions you might have @RogueLamb! Also, if anyone wants an invite to the Nanowrimo group I created on their site, just poke me with an @ in this thread or a PM on discord and I will invite you! (I just need your Nanowrimo username to send out the invites!)
  4. Weird...I also use chrome and it works for me. The nano site has been known to have the occasional bug, but I'm glad you got it working on Firefox!
  5. A bit late to the party, but I will be doing Camp Nanowrimo when it comes again this July! I have created a cabin for us under Writers of RoH, in case anyone is interested in joining! Whether you have a serious writing goal or just want to have fun and get some writing/editing in, all are welcome to join! You can check out our cabin page HERE! Just gonna casually tag everyone in the interest group, because I know we've gotten some new peeps in the last few months! (And even if you're not planning to do Nanowrimo, I would still love to hear about any of your current writing projects!) @Stormtree @Helios @ShogunTaira @KalianVan @Mithodris @Nyx @Jae Onasi @MrChavez1234 @Meviken @goodpretender @DaemonNahash @Morgani @Laysa @DreamingofRoses @Dubh'laoch @RogueLamb @Morisabe @QuietlyExisting @Galvanic @ZEE @Obran @Jixara @Eskili @Medusa @hunterhead @Midget Cowboy @Annamika @Acies
  6. This is a great idea @Medusa! Thank you for sharing! It's been ages since I've written any haikus, but here's mine! Fire and fury fall From the maws of serpent foes Beware their shadows
  7. OMG happy birthday!!! I miss seeing you around! 🎉

      Don't Touch

      Yes Hello this is Hat. I might be around again we'll see. Been mostly playing alot of Overwatch tbh.

  8. Hiya everyone! Anyone working on something fun they want to share?
  9. With all the craziness going on, I totally forgot about Camp Nano starting up! I definitely want to get some writing in and thank you for the reminder!
  10. Those are really cool character cards @Mithodris! What did you use to make them?
  11. Apologies for not updating this sooner, but I hope you all had an awesome Nanowrimo! I personally added a combined total of 62k words to two of my writing project during the month, and I'm really proud of myself! No matter how many words you wrote last month or beyond, the important part is that you're writing! I'm planning to start a draft for a new lgbt/fantasy story that I've been plotting recently and this will likely be my project for the winter! Let me know how your Nanowrimo went and what your plans are going forward!
  12. OMG so many birthdays today! Happy Birthday @SilentTheGray@DaveRoH, @Kabrinsky, and @Tyrtaeus ! 🥳

  13. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all get to eat lots of yummy food and spend time with cherished people! ❤️

  16. Hi everyone! I recently came across this awesome website for writing that turns your writing into a game! 4thewords has an awesome community and the game itself lets you decorate your character, complete quests that encourage writing, and fight monsters that you literally battle with your word count! I've only been using it for two days, but I'm really enjoying it and have noticed that it has motivated me to write more and stay focused! They currently have a fun event going on for Nanowrimo with aliens, but this site works for pretty much any writing! There is also a place to save your project that lets you create sections and easily create new documents! (I've personally been using the site for my sprints and then copying my progress over to my Scrivener document!) While this is technically a paid service ($5/month), they give you a free month when you make your account! If you are interested in checking this out (link to site is HERE) and decide to make an account (or already have an account), feel free to use my referral code: JXIUS96421 There is also a bonus code I found online for some bonus items for your account too, which is: TOMBSTONE Happy writing everyone!
  17. Hi everyone! I wanted to start a thread where we can discuss possible dates and times for future write-ins in discord! I am free pretty much all day Wednesday and Thursday (with the exception of 9pm EST for ESO RP), and could do some late night stuff Friday and Saturday! Let me know in this thread what days/times work best for you all, and we'll get something scheduled to hangout, do some writing sprints, and motivate each other to write!
  18. Hi everyone! I wanted to make a thread where we can keep a tag list for those interested in getting notifications on stuff posted in this interest group! Let me know if you would like to be added! (Also, let me know if you think there are any categories we should add!) General Nanowrimo Write-Ins
  19. Nanowrimo is officially concluded! Did you reach all of your writing goals this month? If you did, awesome! I'm so proud of you! And even if you didn't reach all of your writing goals this month, you still did some awesome work! Any progress is still progress and you can carry that momentum with you into the next month and beyond! Regardless, let's celebrate!
  20. Nanowrimo has begun! Time get those creative juices flowing and put pen to paper and words on the screen! You got this and can accomplish all of your writing goals!
