Anyone here planning to participate in either of these month-long events?
I’ve never heard of nanowrimo, writing is it?
Sorry, yes it is! It’s National Novel Writing Month, and the goal is to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. It’s really fun — I participated last year but didn’t “win” … I am going to try again this year!
I thought if anyone here was going to participate, we could all add each other as writing partners and encourage one another!
Wow I’m not one for writing so that word count is scary to me. This is cool and I can imagine many great works being written in the spirit of this, hope you and others here who do this have fun, I’ll cheer you guys on.
The new NaNoWriMo web site is live! It’s really attactive, and they’re using Discourse for their forums now!
(It doesn’t seem to OneBox well now, though!)
Ooh that’s a good idea. Actually, would anyone be interested in brainstorming a list like that for VG? We could post it on our VGforums twitter feed and maybe get semc to retweet us.
There’s Burnie burns and Gavin too. The zwei prompt tho I wanna see, cute dog
Zwei is the best character. I feel like if he can fit (and survive) inside a small tube and get smacked into a mech with absolutely no harm to himself, he can do anything.
Okay, here are some ideas for prompts:
- VG logo
- Vain crystal
- Gold mine
- Either dragon
- Gold toad
How are we going to pick? Throw them in a
hat random number generator and pick 31?
A few more ideas:
River Speed Boost
“We Need Vision!”
“Ally is a nightmare!”
Your favorite skin
RNG sounds good, at least to start! Then we can shuffle things if they don’t feel quite right. Anyone else have prompt ideas? They can be kind of random or quirky, that’s fine. Once we have enough, I’ll put together a graphic and tweet it out.
Some I have are:
Also the obligatory
Ozo (Ozo Ozo)
Found the official prompts for Inktober … compare with the RT list above
(We should do our list the same way – as twisted variations on the official ones!)
oh Overgrown is an interesting prompt
Ok, so here’s a list, just running it by y’all before I make it official. These all look pretty fun! Some are more abstract than others, but hopefully nothing’s too confusing.
|VG PROMPT||OFFICIAL PROMPT|
|1||Ozo! Ozo! Ozo!||ring|
|6||I smell bacon!||husky|
|11||Your Fave Frosty Hero||snow|
|24||Spin to win||dizzy|
|28||Ride or die!||ride|
