HI writer thread. It's Mid-March, which means it's almost time for Camp NaNoWriMo.

That's all. Just thought I'd remind people.

I was just talking to a coworker about this the other day. I run my local writing group during normal NaNo but I haven't decided if I want to do Camp as well. Would be good to get another 50,000 words hammered out on my novel that I started in November and I also have a business trip at the beginning of next month so I mean, I'll need something to do at the airport....

Do it!!

One thing I did like about Camp NaNo is you can set the goals a little lower than regular NaNo if you end up busy. (Or higher if you're not busy, that works too!)

I'm all or nothing sometimes! I binge projects so NaNo has always been good to have a dedicated binge-writing month, since other months I'm binge drawing, or binge programming, binge reading... gaming... baking... I rotate through my hobbies in cycles haha

Well, if you have 12 hobbies, then you could binge one every month :o

'Normal' NaNo is usually my go hard month, and then I usually sort of aim for less than that in Camp months, lol!

Hmmm, new life goal? Acquire more useless hobbies to binge work on? Drawing, writing, programming, gaming, reading... I guess I could take up the flute or crochet again but I don't want my neighbors to hate me and my husband banned me from buying any more yarn since I end up hoarding it hehe. Binge turking? Haha.

My attention span is way too short for that!!

I just noticed this thread existed so I wanted to wave at everyone. I haven't done much new writing this year but the survivor challenge kind of reinspired me and I got some words in over the weekend.

Considering camp nano to see if I can kickstart my brain to write regularly again...

If you guys were ever interested in Aeon Timeline 2 for writing, they have it on sale right now. It's super helpful for plotting out books and keeping them in order.

If you want an extra 10% off, put the code "MISSYOU10" into the promo field. (I'm not getting anything for this, I just saw it on another forum I venture on and thought it was a really good deal.) Usually it's $50 but with the promo code it comes down to like $20.70 :)

I used to write , I used to write a lot . I would even give poems as gifts . Life or someone else's version of life happened my creative edge must have leaked from my feet while I was sleeping . I forgot about my passions and got caught up in trying to survive instead of really "living":

Not sure if this is the right forum, but it's writing related. April is National Poetry Month and this will be my 7th year writing something every single day this month. I used to write with my old college writing group and we would each give prompts for the day and respond, but life happened to many of them, so I keep on keepin' on. Anywho, I'm writing with you! (just fewer words, different form!)

Speaking of Scriviner... A member in a writing forum I'm subbed to shared this program that is similar to Scriviner but less complicated looking? It seems to have some other features and the interface is a bit nicer imo. For anyone who doesn't want to buy Scriviner for writing projects, check this out :)

It's called WriteWayPro: http://writewaypro.com/download.php

Been a while since I posted in here but found a neat spreadsheet for NaNoWriMo.

http://svenjaliv.com/nanowrimo-word-tracker-spreadsheets/

The link is below all the art and you can "purchase" the spreadsheet by simply putting a 0 in the amount bar. Then you will get the download links/info for it. It seems super useful and I think I am going to be adapting it to my writing process :)

You're welcome :D
I especially love the extra tabs with the character/plot/chapters etc. Makes it kinda a universal tool for the stories/books.

I like that too. I just wish it would let me change the dates for like July or something. :eek:

I'm sure there's a way I just haven't poked at it much. Or they'll make another one for July.

edit: nvm it worked when I opened it in libre office
