  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    Its that time again folks, we are coming up to November, which means it is time for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month http://www.nanowrimo.org/). So who is in this year, who isnt, or are you undecieded about it. I plan to give it another go, never made it to the 50,000 mark yet but maybe this year will be my lucky year.

    So those of us who are doing come on in. Introduce yourself and make your self comfy, I have equiped the room with plently of coffee and power points for the long nights on the computer.

    Oh and I'm Nat, on the NaNoWriMo site I'm foxyfan, add me and let me know you are from CF and I will become buddies with you.

    This is my first year giving it a go. I'm Derek, Barnardine over on NaNo. I fully expect to die, but hey, you only live once, right?

    I'm working on non-fiction myself, but I have friends doing NaNoWriMo. My best wishes to everyone here taking up the challenge!

    This is my current synopsis. It should hopefully not change much, at least not until November.

    The Heir of Atlantis:

    Jonah Davenport was just an average teenager leading an average, mediocre life. Everything changed the day that mythological creatures attack Jonah, seeking the Power of Atlantis. Jonah is in the dark about the Power of Atlantis, and is saved by the school janitor, and family friend, Zeus (no relation to the god). Zeus' intervention is not a coincident; he has been guarding Jonah since his birth, and has kept the Power of Atlantis safe. Zeus tells Jonah the story of his past, a story that is still unfolding now.

    Together the duo must journey to Atlantis, the lost city that was never sunk. They must go toe to toe with an evil foe from Zeus' past. All Jonah wants is a normal life, but with Poseidon&#8217;s Trident, the true Power of Atlantis at hand, Jonah grudgingly accompanies Zeus and they embark on an epic journey to (hopefully) save Atlantis.

    Nah, not me. I have two novels in progress, but I'm a student. I'm not kidding myself. There's no way I can finish a whole book in the next month. I pace myself and write when I can make time. My last novel took me two years. Good luck to all those trying it!

    I love NaNo! Unfortunately I haven't actually succeeded, and this year is looking really bad for trying.... but I think it is an awesome event!

    I think I'm going to try it again this year...(I'm not at all ambivalent on the subject, hehe)

    I tried it once, four years ago, but I didn't come anywhere close to winning (or whatever), and I've been kind of afraid to try again. Plus November's usually a pretty busy month for me, without the added stress of trying to write 50k words. But I've been thinking about it the last week and even planning a story I've had in my head for a while, so...yeah.

    Oh, I'm definitely doing NaNo. I look forward to it all year long :D My name is GoneBlank over there if anyone would like to add me. I don't mind giving people a hand when they're struggling and I love doing word wars. Just send me a message and let me know you're from here :)

    I will most likely not join nanowrimo this year. I am at a lack of inspiration.

    I'll be doing it again this year. Last year some personal problems got in the way and I only got about half-way done. Hopefully things will go better this year. Best wishes to all who are participating.

    I have to laugh at myself for forgetting that I can't put the real world on hold for my imaginary one. :D I'm am soooo far behind now but determined to close the gap this week.

    Well, after a slow shaky start, a frantic middle, and a determined end, I made it to 50k (with a day to spare, even). :clap: My story's not done yet, but I'm hoping to finish it during December, amidst holiday chaos....

    Well my attempt was not a success in the word count sense, but I discovered how much I really love writing and that is my true success! :)

    Congrats to all who gave it a good go and WOOHOO to those who made it to 50k (or more).

    Nice job guys :) I wrote a little over 100k, most of it in the first half of the month. It was rather insane.

    Is anyone else doing Nanofimo? I am, though I'm working on a different novel because the November one is done.

    Nanofimo?! I've never heard of that!

    And it's exactly what I needed since I already have a partially written novel I started years ago. I was too busy last month to write anything, so I was really bummed about that, but this made my day!
