Hello everyone. Saying that it has been a while would be an understatement. I sincerely apologize for the length at which I have been MIA(missing in action). Sometimes life just jumps up and nips you in the knickers unexpectedly. Now to get down to business!



NaNoWriMo
How was everyone's experience? Who made it? I am very interested in setting up some post NaNo interviews to post in a spot light section, so if you have a tale of NaNo woe or triumph that you are interested in sharing, please note the group.



Upcoming WriMo's
This month is dedicated to NaNoEdMo, which is Nation Novel Editing Month. This month's challenge is to commit to 50 hours of editing! April's challenges include NaPoWriMo- Write a poem everyday in the month of April, ScriptFrenzy- Write a 100 page screen or stage play, and RePoWriMo- Refrigerator Poetry Writer's Month(Write poetry using only the refrigerator magnets). We had a couple of people participate in NaPoWriMo last year and master the challenge along with a couple of honourable mentions. This year, I am planing a way to keep the folders a little less hectic, so we will be doing weekly folders, so that will require you to label your own work with the day for which it is being submitted(this applies to WriMo challenges only). If you submit a poem during NaPoWriMo to a folder and it is not marked with the day, the submission will be denied with a comment on the reason to remind you. So, when submitting a poem, please title as such: Day XX - Title of Poem (Or you can reverse the order if you like). There will be more to come on this.



A Call for Help
I know that the switch in ownership of the group that took place was sudden and there were staff in place, but I need to know who is still interested in helping out and who among our members are interested in participating in staff activities and some behind the scene's work. If you are currently listed as staff, please see the posted announcement.




As always, I wish everyone a great March and hopefully you will be seeing more from me soon!

Life really kicked me in the crotch as well (I've been in the hospital the past two weeks), so there's not much chance of me editing my NaNo, unfortunately. I do intend to try and get myself back together in time for my first Script Frenzy, though.

I forgot about the poem month! I'm definitely doing that along with script frenzy. <3

Well I wanted my writing fix so I'm going for another 50,000 this month. I'm a tad behind, but I have Spring Break around the corner.

Probably won't participate in the Script Frenzy, though. Onwards regardless!

I so failed my NaNo in 2011. :lol: Life kept me busy, and in the end I didn' like what I was writing, so I gave up somewhere around 20k words or so. :stare:

Hey, don't feel bad! I also gave up somewhere on 25k too, because a mac computer decided to hate me and delete most of my content to 18k. You could've had worse, like me (and I was close to finishing my YWP challenge of 25k too! Which is why I use windows instead of macs now...)

Ahh, but your trials were because of the computer. :noes: I hate it when computers decide to go like that. D:
But yeah, this year I'll try again. :la: :highfive:

Go for it! If I've decided that I'll try every year until I succeed then so can you! Power to the imagination!
And as I say it could've been worse...
