    sinfonietta just reminded me I meant to make a thread on this! She's doing amazingly, sure there's plenty of other people at other stages around. It's something I've always thought would be cool to do but never actually thought about doing seriously, I'd be horrendous at it apart from anything else one day...

    Anyone doing it? If you don't know what it is it's explained here, there's still time to sign up! Good luck writing 50,000 words in two weeks though, you're braver (or stupider? ) than me :lol:

    I don't even write that many words on TSR in a month (I don't think), so I probably couldn't even attempt that

    What's your priority but yeah, think a lot of people are probably like that. Wondering if there's an option to do similar in different months, November is the main one but be interesting to see if they'd get participation at other times of the year too. Who knows

    I'm massively behind and if i'm honest I don't think I'm going to complete, but I'm going to push on (I am about 12k behind on what I should be at, so I need to basically try and write 4k minimum each day. Thankfully this week at sixth form I have a lot of free lessons so i'm going to try and do more than that!

    It would be cool to try something like this out over the summer or something. Might have to do our own! :laugh:

    There used to be WriMo's most months of the year. I helped run the April, May, and July events over 2009-2014. But one by one they all disappeared. The introduction of Camp NaNo kind of aided in that. Facebook groups are more popular in the WriMo world now. Camp runs in April and July now, I believe, unless they've moved it again haha.

    Anyway, yes, hello! This is my eleventh year participating in NaNoWriMo and I'm on track for my eleventh win. At 35k so far and have yet to start writing today (the 14th).

    I'm writing a YA piece this year about body image issues in teenage boys. Almost everything I write includes LGBT themes, and this project is no exception. It's my first time in a few years writing teenage characters, which is a little strange for me, but it's a fun break from the types of characters I usually write.

    If anyone else is participating and coincidentally also writes LGBT characters, I've set-up a Discord server for LGBT writers. We've around 40 people so it's a good-sized and active, but not overwhelmingly busy, server. If you want the link PM me.

    I was going to try this this year, but things took a massive downhill spiral in my life at the beginning of November, resulting in just over a week in hospital amongst other things, and it fell by the wayside.

    I might just use it as an excuse to start writing from now though, and not worry too much about the word count/timeline.

    Hope you're feeling a bit better now :hugs: but yeah, that definitely sounds good! What sort of stuff do you like writing about?


    One day left! Has anyone else managed to do it, or tried and given up? Sure there must be some of you about!

    I did it for the first time this year, finished in 21 days :nutcase:

    Thinking of editing it and making it available to buy at some point; I put each day's work on Facebook and got some good feedback, so that might be worth doing.
