Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

Brigit Langley for Fletcher Langley.
The Matchmaking Menace
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Charming NaNo 2K18

NaNoWriMo: Posting Edition


THAT'S RIGHT WITCHES!

It is time.

Not sure what NaNo is? NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It is an online challenge for writers to write 50,000 words in order to get the first rough draft of their novel done - and the biggest challenge is getting it done all while in the month of November!

Seeing as how we aren't writing novels here, the rules are a little different:

The Name of the Game
  • The goal is to write 10,000 words within the month of November. This will run November 1st to November 30th, 2018 NOT AC to AC.
  • You have to pick one character to complete the challenge with.
  • Every IC post that you want to count toward your total word count needs to be posted IN THE SPREADSHEET BELOW; but each post still needs the total number of words noted at the bottom. All IC forums count, this means journals/letters etc, but not the AU forum!

How to Play
  • YOU will be keeping track of your post total via this handy dandy spreadsheet.
    • Create a new tab with your name and your character's name.
    • Copy and paste the entire coding into your own tab.
    • Post the link to the post in the first column.
    • Put the actual post (without any html/bbcoding) in the "post" column, the last column will total it up and then the total from that column will go into the word total!

BUT WHAT DO YOU GET IF YOU DO THIS HUGE THING?
Three lovely prizes!

1) The November Challenge stamp

Code:

2) The NaNoWriMo Stamp
Coming soon!

3) And a set/moodboard from Bee!


Please note: If your posts are obviously long just for the word count and not resembling in any way a quality post, it will not be counted.

WANT TO PLAY?

Sign up here! Don't forget to tell me which character you're going to be using.

Word counting begins at 12am EST on November 1st!

Questions about NaNo? Post them as a reply here! Questions about the spreadsheet? ASK OLIVE, I HAVE NO IDEA!
