peering ahead toward November... [Sep. 9th, 2013|01:00 pm]

Anyone else?

I'm going to use Sept/Oct. to "clear the decks" and gather all the novel-shrapnel, so it will be ready to go in Nov.

Hello all!!

Just curious if this comm was still alive.  Also, is it related in any way to the DC regional stuff from the site forums?

WEbook.com invites NaNoWriMo writers to make history [Jan. 11th, 2009|11:02 pm]
Nanowrimos in Washington, D.C.

Hello fellow writers!

In a week and a half, you will be presented with the perfect setting for a story.

On January 20, 2009, history will be made as Barack Obama becomes the United States’ forty-fourth president. Millions will be taking part in the occasion, whether from the green lawns of the nation’s capital or the comforts of their own homes.

And as DC residents, you all have a front row seat!

WEbook, the home of community-sourced novels, invites NaNoWriMo writers to share tales about their anticipation of, participation in, and reflections on this monumental American experience.

WEbook will then publish Jan 20 2009: True Stories, Real People, One Day within two weeks of the inauguration.

So please, grab a pen and your free Jan 20 2009 news notebook and write freely about your inauguration experience. Your story may go down in history!

Good luck!

ps. If you have any questions, please let me know or you can visit http://www.webook.com/jan20 for more information.

For those who'd like to keep writing... [Dec. 1st, 2008|09:04 am]
Nanowrimos in Washington, D.C.

Hey all! Congrats to all who won NaNo this year! It's fantastic- you're all more motivated writers than I think I'll ever be.

If you're interested in continuing to write, I'd like to extend you all an invitation to the brigits_flame writing community. Here's some things you can look forward to in our community:

1. The monthly writing contest: Every month, the community holds a writing competition. Each week, everyone who competes is given a topic. By the end of the week, they're asked to write their best piece of writing on that topic, whether it's fiction, poetry, a memoir, or any other format you'd like. Everyone votes on the best pieces, and the top 50% of the writers go on to week 2. So if 100 people sign up, 50 move on to week 2, 25 move on to week 3, 13 move on to week 4, and only one wins the month. The winner has their name recorded on the profile and on the sidebar of the community.

2. Editing: Whether you're competing or not, if you write an entry, you're able to sign up for editing from our team of volunteer editors. You can specify how tough you'd like your editing to be and whether you want that editing to include grammar and spelling. We're also always happy to have new volunteers for editing- even if you only want to take one edit a week.

3. The Daily Chatter Post: Every day, we have a post that opens the floor for discussion, reflection, or some other topic. Members converse, share, and get to know each other.

4. The monthly mini contest: Every month, one member shares their special talents to host a mini contest. In the past, the winner can has had their writing translated into music, artwork, an acted-out youtube video, and a variety of other things. It's a great time, and a nice opportunity to compete without a monthly commitment.

Along with these things, we always have a bunch of other things going on. The environment is open and supportive, and the members and moderators are active, caring people. We already have a ton of NaNo people there, and the crowd is really something special.

We're taking signups for the December contest until noon today. If you're interested, click on the icon to put your name in! Because of the various holidays, December will be a three-week contest only, so it should fit in with a busy life!

Hope to see you there! ^_^

HELP!!!! [Nov. 30th, 2007|12:29 pm]
Nanowrimos in Washington, D.C.
Sickness, family issues, work craziness, etc. has prevented me from getting even 20k done by today. It's my third NaNo and the worst I've done on word count, BUT with the best idea/planning ever. I'm hoping to continue to write it until the story is finished, even after November is over.

Is anyone else in a similar sticky situation? Wanna be writing buddies so we can encourage each other? Any advice from others who have had this happen before?!

Make a lot of love and have a drink on me!

I hit 50,000 words!!!!!

Hallie solved the crime and kicked some ass along the way.

Loved NaNo this year and I'm soooo happy that I won for the first time in four years.

Good luck to the rest you still have 24 plus hours.

Write-In at Foster Brothers in Cleveland Park 11/14/07! [Nov. 14th, 2007|09:11 am]
Nanowrimos in Washington, D.C.
Hey, everyone!

After the much-too-loud-to-think Phantom of the Opera music last week at SoHo and a very lovely, quiet, but friendly Write-In at Foster Brothers on Monday, I've decided to forgo the SoHo Write-In this evening in favor of a bit of quiet. If anyone would like to join me, I'd love to have company tonight.

I get out of work at 5:30 or so in Dupont and will probably be there by about 6 for an hour to an hour and a half, but others are welcome to come and go whenever you please.

Hope to see you there!

I think I am going to get there around 7? Anyone else interested? They have a lovely strange back room that used to be the theater lobby.
