    Charming NaNo 2k17
    NaNoWriMo: Posting Edition

    It's that time of year friendssss!

    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, 2017 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!

    Three lovely prizes!

    1) The November Challenge stamp

    <img src="" title="Completed November's Challenge" />

    2) The NaNoWriMo Stamp
    Coming soon!

    3) And a set from Bee!
    [Sorry it's not as exciting as a Té set, but I will do my best for you!]

    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.


    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!

    Crystal is half-vampire, your character is most certainly aware of this.
