Well, the site has fallen kind of dormant again, so here's a thought...

This year, I was looking at participating in the NaNoWriMo competition (NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month).  The gist of the challenge is to write a full 50000 word novel in the span of 30 days (Midnight Nov 1 - Midnight Nov 30).  It might not necessarily be good, but it gets people to challenge themselves to write heavily and consistently, to produce a novel...a feat many have difficulty seeing through to completion.

I was curious...I know many here are students and aren't likely to have a whole lot of free time, but is there anyone on here that might be interested in trying the challenge?

I like the idea, but it will honestly depend on my work load. I will try though.

Kentai, you make me jealous. I'm going to sit this one out, though I look forward to seeing what comes of it!

Well I am the same as always, Tau Worlock at your serves.

But how does on add a buddy? The only way I have found is by finding their profile and clinking the add buddy button there.

Well I am here.

There is an Author Search Option that shows up when site traffic is a little lower, but I don't see that happening any more any time soon.

Have you posted on the forums?  If I can find your post, I can add you into the buddy list.  Smiley
