Welcome to brisbane_nanos, a community for NaNoWriMo participants living in the Brisbane area.
What is NaNoWriMo?
It's the National Novel Writing Month, in which people write a 50 000 word novel in a month. No, really. No. Really-- NaNo means never having to say you’re kidding.
It’s literacy BDSM to the extreme but we adore it.
This is an open community which means anyone is allowed to join. Please play nicely though folks, no stamping on others peoples’ sandcastles.
Don’t forget to introduce yourself!
I’m still confused… Check out the FAQs at the official site and if you still have any worries or question feel free to put a post up here.
I’m masochistic and enjoy going for days on nothing but coffee and plot bunnies chasing me, how do I join up? You can sign up to NaNoWriMo here, at the official site. Don’t forget to come back here though!
So what’s this journal for? brisbane_nanos does exactly what it says on the tin. We’re a community for participants in the Brisbane area.
What gets posted here? Updates and news. Events like the Kick Of Party or Write-Ins. It’s basically a networking group for people to find friends and support.
Am I allowed to post at all? Go for it! The world is your oyster!
What can I post? Anything from icons, snippets of your novel to pleads for help or hunts for a beta. Anything and everything as long as it is somehow related to NaNoWriMo or your novel.
I’d love to get together with some people in my area… There are a lot of events going on so be sure to check the calendar but feel free to post about your own events as well.
