Due to popular request, we now hold a Writer’s Spotlight twice a month.
The #spotlight is your chance to to showcase your project and its world building in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ style Q&A. Other users will pop in to ask you questions and also help you find any areas of your world building that may need a little help.
To take part, fill out an application form here.
A Mod will then tell you if you have been approved and will offer you a choice of date for your Spotlight. Each Spotlight lasts 24 hours and other users can be notified of new Spotlight events by joining the #Spotlight rank (Type !rank Spotlight in #writing_general).
Take part in an interactive Q&A session hosted by our members. Each session will last about an hour and go through an in-depth series of questions designed to help you look at your story, outlining and world building quite closely. These events will take place in the #storycraft channel in various timezones.
To take part, join the #WBChat rank (Type !rank WBChat in #writing_general) and you’ll be notified of new chat events.
Missed one? Don’t worry! The questions from each WB Chat will be pinned for you to access at any time.
Question of the Day
A mini-version of our WB Chat sessions. Throughout the day various questions will be asked in #writing_general about your character, story or world to get you thinking. These can range from character development questions like “What is your main character’s deepest fear?” to world building questions such as “What dangers exist in your protagonists world?”
Anyone can take part and answer a question. If you’ll like to be notified of new Questions, you can join the #qotd rank (Type !rank qotd in #writing_general).
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and Camp NaNo
NaNoWriMo is a month-long challenge each November to write 50,000 words. It’s held by the official NaNoWriMo website. Writers from all across the world join communities like ours to exchange support and encouragement. Writing a novel in a single month is no mean feat.
When NaNoWriMo starts again this year, we will create our own private #nano channel for participants to discuss their projects and word counts. Keep an eye on our server #news channel for more info when the time comes.
Alternatively, the official NaNoWriMo website also hosts a smaller version of NaNo in the summer called Camp NaNo. This is held in April and July and follows the same basic rules as NaNoWriMo, but you can set your own word count.
Keep an eye on our server for NaNo events in April, July and November!
