Alright, fuckboys, since you're all you, I guess it's time to get this shit started a month early. And since I'm the one to get around to it this time, we're just cramming the threads together. Don't like it? Well, we can talk about it later over tea.
Okay, so, what's Nanowrimo?
I'm glad you asked, figurative anon who's been living under a fucking rock!
NaNoWriMo (or National Novel Writing Month) is a goddamn month to write a goddamn novel. In THP's case, that means thirty uninterrupted days of updates or thirty-thousand (30,000) words total. If you can manage it, good for you. Pat yourself on the back.
How about prizes for those who finish under the conditions?
If somebody wants to do it, they can. I'm not going to hold out hope, nor do I think anyone else is. Why not give us all a pleasant surprise?
Okay, fine. Oh, and what's this crap about A.T.O.M.?
I could natter on about the history of it, but here's the TL;DR:
MAKE FUCKING ACTIVITY.
That's it. Just update, vote, discuss, shitpost, and do whatever the fuck you want to as long as you're injecting a little life into this site. There are no rules or conditions because it's not really a contest.
And there's the usual bonus objective of bumping this thread at least once per day (read: you can do it again even if someone else has).
Is there any prize for that?
The satisfaction that you've been something close to a contributing member of the community for once in your goddamned life.
Good enough for me. When does all of this shit start and end?
Start: 01 November, midnight in whatever shitty timezone you live in.
End: 01 December, midnight in whatever shitty timezone you live in.
So, yeah, if the new plague hasn't got you by then, get ready to fucking start, assholes.
