Subscribe to this thread to receive all the latest announcements about NaNoWriMo and PlanMo!

Overview


NaNo and PlanMo? What are those?

NaNoWriMo is a month-long writing event. The classic challenge of NaNo is to write a novel in 50,000 words -- though there can be modifications on this! Read @Shady's post here for more information.

PlanMo is an event on YWS where writers can plan for NaNo. It is run from the Official PlanMo Club. The main event for PlanMo is the PlanMo Journal Challenge (updates and information on that will be coming soon).

How can I participate?

Create a thread for your project in the NaNoWriMo forums! You can see examples of threads in the archives here. You can also create a thread in the aforementioned PlanMo Club for your planning materials. When November starts - get writing! You can update your daily word count in your thread to keep track of your progress.

Index/ Coming Soon...

- PlanMo Journal Challenge
- Word Crawls
- Write-ins

OC for a day


Image


Back by popular demand -- #ocforaday will be running from 5th-7th November! This is a People's Tab activity where YWSers roleplay as an original character of theirs on their walls or their friends' walls.

Some ideas:
- Changing your avatar to a doodle or picrew image of your character
- Signing off with your character's name at the bottom of a post so we know who's talking
- Doing a #characterinterview at the same time by making a wall post where your character requests questions from their adoring YWS public

Remember always to follow site rules and roleplay rules when roleplaying! And have fun!

Prompts for the spoonless Club


Image

If you're looking for a more low-pressure NaNo this year, @Teddybear has just the club for you! Join Prompts for the spoonless this November. Here is a quote from the club's about page by the creator:

I humbly present, prompts for the spoonless, in which a prompt list will be presented week by week for the duration of nanowrimo. I want us all to be able to participate and have fun, so everything is fluid. You can choose whatever prompt you want, to create whatever kind of writing you want. Poems, short stories, chapters of existing projects, whatever you have the spoons for that day.



You can join clubs by clicking on the 'subscribe' option on the right-hand menu, underneath the club icon.

Whether you're finishing your wordcount for the 30th day of NaNo, or if you haven't started yet, or if you haven't been writing for the past week, etc. feel free to share your thoughts on this November's writing! It can be anything from what you've learned, what you enjoyed most or what you wished you'd done or known. Either way, it's time to celebrate another year's attempt at NaNo! Post in the People's Tab and tag it with #nanoreflections
