Nanowrimo!

Warriors!

This community was originally created to help the people I knew keep motivated for Nanowrimo.I don't know how many of you are doing it this year, but we're gonna use it for its intended purpose this month! (And also for saying "I'm in" at the war room and stuff, that's fine, obviously. :))

My Nanowrimo wordcount is currently: 706

(so i'm starting off only 1k behind, woo yay @.@ :))

War Room Info Post

Hey, Warriors:

I'm noticing that people who have been pretty regular in the war room are starting to drop out due to too much chatter and not enough war. I'd like to remind everybody that the room's main purpose is to write, not talk.

The room provides options for private chats that don't scroll through the main window (I should know, I use them a lot!), so I'd like to ask people to, in general, take conversations that go much beyond "at the :15? Going! Gone! Time!" to those private chats, so that the main room is uncluttered for the purposes of word wars. It can be dismaying to log in and see vast scroll of chat with no indication of a war ever happening.

I know we all use the space as an AUGH or a spleen-venting or a brainstorming or just a little social interaction space from time to time, and that's okay, but by and large we should all (myself included, it's not like I'm not guilty of this) say "Can I rant?", get the rant out, and then wind it down.

A separate chat room can be opened and joined by typing "/join chat" in the war room, so if people want to have longer conversations, let me heartily encourage them to use that!

Thanks!
