The Write-a-Thon for 2017 has launched!
If you are interested in participating this year, please check out This Page to sign up!
This year we will be running from October all the way through the end of November. This is for two reasons:
1. It can be difficult to get writing done in November
2. If you are planning on doing NaNoWriMo, it can be difficult to get large amounts of writing done in October if you are outlining or story planning.
And, finally, it can be nice to add another incentive for yourself during NaNoWriMo.
We will follow the same format as last year. When you sign up we will provide you with a Paypal link which you can put up on your site, or post on social media. The same rules apply: You set your goals, and you communicate with donors how you wish. You aren't obligated to post any of your work that you do during this time, and it can be any type of writing you want, fiction or nonfiction.
Obviously, it's a lot of fun to get people excited about sponsoring you in the Write-a-Thon by giving them snippets of your work as you have something cool to show, so we encourage that. It is, however, not required.
If you have any questions, please get in touch and we will be glad to answer them. Sparf is the point-person for this event, and you can find him either via the contact links on this site, or on Twitter @Sparf.
Fellow critters, start your typing!
