>This is a travesty. The Cabal has been talking away here, and it’s become obvious that we will decidedly not be having a NaNoWriMo this year. Why? Because reasons.


Yeah, that’s right, fuckheads, we are having a Nana Write More, and it’s gonna be fucking incredible.

“Whoa,” you say. “I thought we weren’t going to have it?”

Are you deaf? Because you heard fucking wrong. Who the hell said that? The ‘Cabal’? I AM THE CABAL YOU PEASANTS. BOW TO ME AND please participate in Nanowrimo please please please I don’t want to be the only one participating.

“Wait. Moral, you can barely fucking update anything!”

To that, invisible talking voice, I reply: That’s what they say every year, but I’ve completed Nanowrimo twice now. I don’t know if I can make it a third time, but god damn it, I’ll try.

Rules are fairly straightforward. Either you:

1) update thirty times in November, or:
2) write thirty-thousand words total before November 30.

Yes, you can technically post 30k words in the last day, but you have to declare that you’re participating before Nanowrimo begins. If you don’t, you’re the first to be fed to the live sharks that were bought by the THP Patreon donor money (don’t fact check me on that). There will be no extensions, as per usual. Also, don’t worry too much about timezones—nobody gives a shit about your made-up timezone that’s 50 hours behind. You’re a human being, so you’re smart enough to keep track of your own days. Yes, there will be auditing, and no, you’re not that stupid enough to fake a timezone difference. Write anything you want—shorts, updates to existing stories, updates to a new story, yadda yadda, go fucking nuts.

...What? You asked if there are prizes? Uh. Shit. Don’t tell them about the prizes last year.

Fine. That’s right, last year had prizes. Here’s a quote from the 2018 thread that sums it up. If you managed to succeed in Nanowrimo:
>YOU can provide a story idea, a concept, a rough outline, or your shitty fetishes, and a group of volunteer writers will pick it up and write about it.

By the way, I was one of those writers, and I have yet to finish one of the requested prizes. There are several more unfinished (anyone can pick them up, hint hint) that I have to answer for. The prize this year will be the same.

YOU can provide a story idea, a concept, a rough outline, or your shitty fetishes, and a group of volunteer writers (probably just me) will pick it up and write about it.

Whoa, before you burn me at the cross, I assure you that they will be finished. I won’t give you the same, boring excuses that I’ve made every few months or so (wahh, life getting to me, wahh, busy, etc.), so I’ll just say that I plan on keeping my promises. Plus, on the bright side, we probably won’t get many entries anyway this November so who cares?


Got questions? Well, me too. Ask away on the THP Discord:

See ya, bozos. I’m off to begrudgingly finish writing the Nanowrimo 2018 rewards.

I'm planning to participate this year. I won't be doing a daily update, but I will be trying to hit 30k (and hopefully, much more). I'll post again in this thread with information on which thread I'll be posting in and my schedule for it, etc., a little closer to November.

Also, >>15829, the real Cabal sends its regards.
>>No. 15837
I got asked a good question.
>so are atom and nanowrimo competing?

FUCK YEAH WE ARE Wait, we're not? Well, since we're in the spirit of updating and shit, we might as well consolidate. If you succeed with Nanowrimo, you also win for the All Touhous Owe Money contest. You can feel like a double winner now! Or a double failure! It's all up to you, my adorable little stains.
>>No. 15838

Skip the Yumemi one. I got something in the works for that.
>>No. 15839
We'll both write one, then. It's a date.
>>No. 15840
I'll be updating, but not participating. Would've been cool if the MaF sequel was ready for this, or rather I had time for it, but with the other two stories... nope.
>>No. 15841
Alright yeah whatever, I'll be participating this year, and I'll be writing under this name so I don't wimp out and everyone I know can yell at me to update or whatever.
I'm not ready.
>>No. 15842

Hope I got my trip right, but I’m in for Nanner Rice Meal, absolutely.

Hopefully things aren’t like last year Ahahah kill me.
>>No. 15845
Okay, fine, I guess I gotta use my trip to announce myself.

I'm joining in on this. Very likely not daily updates, because I am a wagecuck who works shit hours and have the attention span of a fly. I look forward to failing even more this year.

Good to see my little callout got up your collective arses, though.
>>No. 15847
Lurker reporting in, work to my amusement, slaves.
>>No. 15848
I'm participating. I have an idea for a story focusing on Medicine.
>>No. 15849
Ah, so it was you all along.
>>No. 15850
Hell, it's been a long time, why not? I'm in!
>>No. 15852
Been hesitant about participating this year. Got my finals to worry about, so I can't update daily.
But 30k words should be doable, assuming I'm allowed to start beforehand
Though who is gonna come and fact check it anyway? There' will be a long update at the end regardless. Besides, its not like I'm gonna claim my price either, if I manage to do it again this year.
>>No. 15853
>who is gonna come and fact check it anyway?
We're all aydolts here. I'll take your word unless it's painfully obvious that there's been a cheater on the premises.
>>No. 15855
last year I said something similar, but I actually recently started entertaining a thought

I think, we'll see. Depending on others, I may or may not start something

I’m in. It’ll be my first time in a contest (marathon?), so please be gentle, senpai.
>>No. 15858

Yeah, that's right. At the time of writing, it's currently 10/31/2019 over where I am. You know what that means. No, fuck your stupid made-up holidays. Yeah, the other thing - Nanowrimo. We have exactly one day, or maybe less depending on your imaginary timezones, to start this shit. No pressure or anything, but if any of you ninnies decide to pussy out now, then I'm going to have to send in the task force AKA the live sharks, now with new ground mobile unit capabilities. Yes, the Patreon funded that too. Point is, sharks and voluntary writing.

Now watch me fuck up on the first day and fail Nanowrimo.
>>No. 15859
For good measure - if this less-than-ten-updates-a-year faggot by some kind of coincidence does not supply the sharks and ANGRY YELLING, someone else will. It will not be pretty.
>>No. 15860
There's no 31st month, your threats are useless against me.

This is my story entry this year:

I'm teaming up with Fluff in the squared circle, because apparently NaNo is the only time of year I'm capable of getting off my ass and writing.
>>No. 15864
https://www.touhou-project.com/forest/res/31293.html Take my entry!
>>No. 15865
So marks the beginning of Nanowrimo for me. Deadlines and failures fuck yeah!
>>No. 15866
I'm far too busy with college, intership and my thesis to write a story and update it early. Instead I promise to read every single entry of the contest and vote and comment on them, regardless of whether I like the story or not.
>>No. 15867
You ought to be doing that anyway, but good on you for showing that atomic spirit.
>>No. 15868
You writers should be updating daily every time too, but you don't see me complaining about it.

Anyway, normally I do vote on all the stories I'm invested in, but I skip those that don't interest me. All I'm saying is that for this month I'll ignore the caveat and stick with every single story even if some turn out to not be of my liking.
>>No. 15869
I'm going to be out of town for the first week or so of this here Nano Writo, so my plan is to write a fuckton of content and dump it all at once. I'm hoping to do my 30k words in two chunks, once in the middle once at the end of the month. I'll post in this thread again when the first chunk is up.
>>No. 15870
For your consideration, the porn entry that no one asked for.

Here's mine. My timezone is still at November 1st so I haven't failed! Woo, got past day 1.
>>No. 15876
Late, but eh >>/th/200549
>>No. 15884
Check this shit out. We're still fucking alive. Yeah, you sick fucks, it's been a week since Nanowrimo's started.

How has it been so far? Do you want to give up like the little bitch you are? Hell no. I feel good, and YOU should feel good, too.

No, but seriously, despite my lack of good health, I've managed to update TWO stories for Nanowrimo every day so far. Granted, one of them has a maximum word count per update (that I admittedly never follow), but you can catch my drift.

Hey, if I can update two stories per day while sick, then anyone can. Right? Right.

Now go get 'em, tiger, before I get the mecha-sharks (MK. II!) out again.
>>No. 15886
How do you authors deal with the crippling fear of rejection when it's time share your creative work with others?

Actually writing stuff is the easy part.
>>No. 15887
I doubt I could help terribly much here. I only submitted my first story here because I'd grown so desperate to share it that I was willing to risk being laughed off the site rather than let it languish. So if it helps, I guess I could note that I was also terrified of that very thing when I first posted.

Beyond that, it may help to note that there's IRC channels and a discord you could potentially request feedback from before posting your story to the main site. I started there and found this stage much easier to commit to. Then, once it's done, you may find submitting the work itself to be a bit less daunting.

Finally, while I won't say it gets better overnight, I will say that it has, at least for me, gotten a lot less scary over time. Eventually, writing did become the hard part, though it took some time.
>>No. 15888
After enough experience, it stops being the monster looming over you. I still get anxious sharing my work to the public eye (and this is after years of writing), but I just tell myself, "Fuck it, I'm sharing it anyway," and submit it.
>>No. 15889
>writing is easy, posting is hard
so there are such things as enviable problems...
>>No. 15891
The anonymous format helps. Who cares if a bunch of faceless losers don't like my excellent take on Parsee? I'm a faceless loser too. There's no real pressure and if they don't like it, they can just ignore it.
>>No. 15892
Figuring out that Anon has no standards.

Okay, well, he does, but his standards are not as high as any writer is towards their own writing, because as the writer you can visualize what you were trying to do as opposed to what you ended up doing, and then you make the mistake of assuming everyone can see that disparity when it's really just you.

So, uhhhh, take it easy, I guess? Anon won't rip you apart unless you're writing in script format and emotes unironically

Passed the 15k mark yesterday.
I got a late start thanks to real life, but I've been catching up and if I manage to keep up my pace will drop a 30k update November 30th, 29th if my proofer can finish it in one go. (Expect 6-7 posts at the character limit)
Just wanted to celebrate.
