Please this journal if you support NaNoWriMo!
National Novel Writing Month is an annual internet-based creative writing project which challenges participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel between November 1 and November 30. The official site is here. It is "the ultimate write-a-thon." Also there is a chatroom on dAmn that supports NaNoWriMo around the clock for all of November, #NaNoWriMo. They have word wars where you continuously write for a period of time and you can also keep track with others on deviantART participating in NaNoWriMo. It's an excellent tool for managing word count too!
This is a massive project that in 1999 when started with only 21 participants, now last year over 200,000 people took part - writing a total of over 2.8 billion words. Seeing how this challenge is ever growing, Community Projects would like to announce that NaNoWriMo will get it's own gallery:
And as we announce this new gallery for the submissions of everything NaNoWriMo, we would like to offer any passionate writer with a novel idea to a contest.
Hook us in to your novel by creating a novel synopsis of no more than 500 words.
We are looking for eye-catching and thought provoking ideas, excellent sentence structures, a hook to draw us in, proper grammar (when appropriate), and usage. The contest will end at the end of the last day in November 12:00AM EST.
Overall Winner will receive
First Place: 800 Points
Second Place: 600 Points
Third Place: 400 Points
