:wave: Hello all, I apologise at the fact that not much has been going on in this group as of late. This is entirely at my own fault. I have not been active due to various reasons and (although I hope to become more active) I'm not sure how much time I can spend on deviantART over the next few weeks.

:thanks: I'd like to thank every member for sticking with us over our dry season and a special thank you to our staff members who have been doing SUCH a wonderful job behind the scenes keeping this group up and running without me. Thank you!

I've called this journal to ask you all how you are doing with NaNoWriMo? It's the fifth of November and we're one SIXTH of the way through already (though that's not the only thing going on today!).

What are your word counts? Remember, you should be on 8,335 words by midnight tonight but if you're not, no worries, you have plenty of time to catch up!

After a weekend away from home, I’m currently on 8781 words but am aiming to be getting another couple of thousand in by this evening as school starts again tomorrow and the hectic routine resumes.

If you are struggling to get the words in, check out this post by Kaleidoscope27, one of London’s NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaisons! It has some great tips about getting your word count up and I'll certainly be using them over the next couple of weeks.

Best of luck with NaNoWriMo, everyone! I'm hoping to read some pretty spectacular novels/short stories at the end of this month. Keep up all the great writing, once again! :love:

I did not know such a thing existed lol. I have already written a 50,000 word novel but I finished that a while back. I started a new novel, but I haven't touched it in a month...

NaNoWriMo is an great oppurtunity for writers to gather (online or in real life) and write or support each other in writing. If you want more details, I urge you to check out NaNoWriMo!

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month where writers aim to write 50,000 words in one month. :) You can check it out here, should you wish.

Oh Gosh..
I was gonna give up because I've written NOTHING!
But then one of m friends encouraged me with.. POSITIVE PEER PRESSURE...
So I suppose I'll be trying to catch up. ;A;
I.. don't think I can though, haha!

Don't give up. I recently read an article about someone who 'lost' NaNoWriMo. It was inspiring as she went on to be a successful writer; one book published the other coming soon.

If it helps, you should read some of the Pep talks NaNoWriMo offers - they certainly inspire me. :)

Best of luck, and, remain positive! :hug:
