NaPoWriMo! One month, fifty thousand words! It's like NaNoWriMo, except pony! Like in NaNoWriMo, you're given one month (in this case, all of August) to write fifty thousand words.
(Written by Noble Cause, copied and pasted from Equestria Daily:)Q. Do I have to write the whole 50,000 words?
A. Not at all. Some of the better fics to come out of this event barely broke 5 K last year. Do NOT feel obligated to push yourself if you feel that your work doesn't go beyond 3,000, or 5,000, or 20,000 words. The story is done and the tale is told in however many words you need.Q. Where do I send my fic?
A. One of three ways, either attach it in an e-mail to [email protected]
, post it to FimFic (you're welcome to post chapters there as you go) or throw it on Gdocs. Whatever works for you.Q. Is there a FAQ or central website for more info about this whole thing?
A. Unfortunately not. This is a one-mare show, and I do… pretty much everything on my own. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't be afraid to e-mail. I do have a day job, but I check my e-mail every morning and evening, and I have Fridays off along with the weekends. That's the best times to grab me.Q. Do I get anything for this?
A. Mostly just bragging rights, and (if you so desire to submit it properly), possibly ending up here on Equestria Daily.Q. That's nice, but anything substantial?
A. Well, here's some news. If things are looking up for me at the end of this event, financially speaking, I'll see about possibly getting some random participants Steam games on the cheap. That's finances permitting, of course.
That's all for now, my friends. May the ideas be cohesive, the words flow like Canterlot's falls, and the stress be low-key. Remember, this is all in fun.
Good luck, and ENJOY YOURSELVES!
All the best,
- Noble Cause
