I was one of the participants last year on NaNoWriMo but I didn't know they were doing an Editing portion of it this month. :Shrug: http://www.nanoedmo.org/

Hey Quidscribis, I just realized you're a moderator on the NaNoWriMo: Elsewhere forum. I was on that forum as well.

I just left a message about NaNoWriMo but it doesn't show up anywhere. Where is it? http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29373

Yeah, I knew this. It won't be as strenuous as NaNoWriMo, though. You need to spend 50 hours on editing your novel. But, somehow, I don't find it tempting.

well, thanks for telling me sanyuja. LOL Just kidding. True it's not as strenuous but you're right not as tempting either.

Hey, how come this thread doesn't show in the listings? :Shrug:

It doesn't show up? Where? I could see it under new posts, I can also see it under the forum 'NaNoWriMo.'

The forum NaNoWriMo doesn't show up under the Writing Exercises, Prompts, and Games (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=33) topics though, unless I'm going blind. LOL

You are right. I don't see the sub-forum either?

Yeshanu was planning to get rid of the NaNoWriMo forum. Is this a result of that?

That could very well be. Maybe we should PM Yeshanu and encourage a reactivation.

I hope this forum doesn't go away -- I like chatting about NaNo'ing when that time of year comes around. Helps me stay sane. Anyway, I just read this:




Q. Why March? http://nanoedmo.org/images/M_images/emailButton.png (javascript: void(0))FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions (http://nanoedmo.org/content/category/3/7/25/) http://nanoedmo.org/images/stories/redpencil2.gifNational Novel Editing Month is held in March to allow National Novel Writing Month participants ample time to complete their stories then set them aside to breathe for a little while before diving back in.





Hope that helps! I copied it right off the link in the FAQ section. I heard of it when last year's contest ended and thought it was a good idea for those who wanted to really push to get the book they produced sold . . . has any NaNoWriMo participant ever sold the book they created during the contest??

After consultation with whoever wanted to submit an opinion, the NaNo board was sort-of closed. We didn't delete it -- we just hid it until next year. You're able to find it and read it by clicking on one of your NaNo posts in your user profile, but it's invisible from the main board, and will remain so until next October.

So I've moved the NaNoEdMo thread to the main prompts board, and merged Judi's two threads.

Have fun editing your novels!

I didn't finish writing it yet but have a publisher that is interested in it when it is finished.

That's excellent! I've wondered for a long time, but that's the first time I've ever asked. I've seen so many writers working so hard at this (there's a few communities over at www.livejournal.com (http://www.livejournal.com) about this), so I wondered about actual publications. This is great!

Thanks Jenn. I wasn't aware of the livejournal site, so thanks for the link. Maybe I'll see you there. :hi:

Server Moves!

Dear NaNoWriters, anxiously awaiting the beginning of a new NaNoSeason,

On Tuesday, September 5th, we will be moving National Novel Writing Month from it's current home in Philadelphia to it's new home in Los Angeles.

There will be a few hours of site down time during this transition.
