I'm excited because I'm participating in Nanowrimo this year. I haven't done it since 2007! Is anyone else participating? If so, friend me. I'm GretaGarbage there. Also, is anyone manning the NoJoMo diary this year? It starts on Thursday, same as Nanowrimo and I wanted to participate in that as well.

I'm hoping to do NaNoWriMo this year! It'll be tough with school and all but hopefully I'll manage. :)

I'm thinking of doing it. I haven't joined the site though. I didn't know you could friend people on the site - years ago when I set out to do it (and didn't finish!) there were groups to join, of people local to you, so you could organise meet-ups. I'm guessing it's quite different now.

@bad penny, I haven't done it since 2007 and it all looks so different but yeah I think you can create friendships there.

Gosh - just took a look, and yes, it's totally different. I think the last time I did it was around 2002 or 2003! Time flies!

I'm thinking of doing NoJoMo, just to try and get myself back into writing again. Whether I'll last (or even start) is another thing altogether though.

I'd be interested in doing NoJoMo, if someone is manning the diary. Getting awfully close to November!

Yeah I know but I don't think anyone is going to man it this year :(

Surely you don't need anyone to man it. You just write a journal entry every day, and then you've done NoJoMo.

I would try to participate in NoJoMo, but I need writing prompts!! Is anyone going to be doing the diary this year?

writing prompts help but no we don't need them, bad penny. For someone like me who doesn't write everyday, I sometimes don't have anything to say so writing prompts give me something to write about. I'll probably use NanoWrimo to do NOJOMO lol

NoJoMo Prompts

Post Count: 1
As the previous NoJoMo diary appears to have been discontinued, I have started a new one for prompts. I will post several prompts a day. Feel free to message me with prompt ideas. If the old NoJoMo diary is resurrected, then I guess we have double sets of prompts! Or we could combine. Either way, prompts will be provided.

I've created a diary to post my NANOWRIMO story in but I don't want to publicize it so if you want to read go to the link below and befriend me. The story is called "In the Shadows" and its about a girl who lost her dad when she was 7 years old and her mother is a drug addict and pretty much raised herself. She meets Tristan, a handsome Guardian Angel who ia sworn to protect her. He falls in love with her but can't act on it and he helps Anna to protect the world.

I feel stupid, but what is NaNoWriMo? I've only heard of NoJoMo, this is the first I've ever heard of NaNoWriMo.

National Novel Writing Month.

I actually believe it was around before NoJoMo (or at least I'd heard of NaNoWriMo first)

Yep, I think NaNoWriMo was the first of such things, and from there NoJoMo, OctPhoMo, etc. have been created. I was thinking the other day I'm curious where NoJoMo originated - maybe OD or LJ?

At one point, I remember a spin-off was created where people wanted to write a novel in a week - and apparently a few keeners succeeded in this! I don't think that's become a regular event though.
