I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered.
But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue:
no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.

Hey all! A quick announcement: Nano-Writers' first writing challenge - part 1 is now closed. I would like to sincerely thank all the Nano Writers who participated!

We continue now with Part 2 of the challenge which was inspired by the following advice:

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.

Many thanks to everyone who responded to our little “get-to-know-a-writer” thread. Some great ideas there so if you haven’t checked it out, click here. Go ahead. We’ll wait for you.

And as you might have expected, we all come to NaNoWriMo with a world-wide variety of experiences and expectations. Some writers finish their NaNo novel (or at least 50,000 words of it) with ease and an envious amount of aplomb. And there are others who have yet to experience that sweet-sweet feeling of victory for themselves - yet being the operative word.

So in order to keep the community’s “fun factor” fresh and open to everyone, newbie and veteran alike, we’re going to try running weekly/monthly challenges (writing and other) with a “rating” system so members can filter out/skip those activities that don’t fit their particular level of experience or interest - though of course, everyone should feel free to participate in any challenge that appeals to them, right?
