    I'd try my hand at it, but usually by the time I hit ~3000 words,
    300000% done no more pls.

    And sorry for the double-post, but Cafe Session #4 is going up tonight/early tomorrow morning!

    You're still allowed to respond to the current one whenever you want, same with the first and second sessions as well. They'll always be open in case you want to add to the discussion when you want to/feel you can. <:

    Perhaps for a future Café Session in November we should discuss methods of sticking to writing your story and not procrastinating (especially in regards to NaNoWriMo) since I also have problems with the infamous procrastination block.

    POSTING to say Cafe Session #4 is ready to go in another hour and a half!

    Excellent point! I believe I've come up with a way to comfortably work it in. However, I do want to ask, how do you guys feel about having a Cafe Session about NaNoWriMo?

    Would you prefer to have it earlier in November, later in November, or not at all? o:

    Bump for opinions on this!

    This is crucial for how the next two Cafe Sessions will be setup, so please answer! Also, please respond to the current Cafe Session if you haven't already!

    (which I will be tomorrow)

    Also, I definitely urge you to watch this thread. Important updates will be posted here coming soon, and you should not miss them!

    It's nice to have that push to get started at first, and also to have another hard kick in the posterior around halfway through.

    Alright, after some deliberation, the next Cafe Session is going to be about Plot.

    Next week though, there will be a bit of a surprise in store and then Cafe Session #6 (November 19th - December 3rd) will be about NaNoWriMo (basically an overview of what it is, talking about what we'd do if we entered, experiences with it we may have, etc.)

    After that we could maybe do something Holiday related for BOOK CLUB, but that's yet to be determined lol. Just letting you all know the haps for the next few things -- it's a busy month!

    finals......................

    Cafe Session #5 has been posted

    Go and post my pretties~

    As Plums said, it's gonna be a busy month. But we'll try to get this party going. Holidays are always jam packed. Are any of you entering NaNoWriMo?

    I've entered...but I've fallen behind rather quickly. The beginning of the month was dress rehearsals and performances for our school musical (and we still have three performances this weekend), and now finals start at the end of next week. Thank goodness for Thanksgiving break. @____@

    Pretty much what tale said. :v In addition to that, I haven't really written any original pieces in a while. The last three I've written were all short shorts too, heh. Maybe next year though when can plan a bit more (and don't have obligations to writing a fanfic).

    I've been meaning to join for some time.

    Username : tummer

    Family Member/Title : The Frantic Storyteller

    Personality : I'm usually a shy person when I'm in a new environment, but if I'm with friends I can be spastic. I'm also a bit reserved around everybody, which has basically caused me to be afraid of people.

    Literary Arts Specialty : Story writing, specifically fantasy. I also seem to have a good amount of romance in my stories, probably because I'm a hopeless romantic.

    Anything else you'd like to share? : I really have a passion for writing and telling all kinds of stories. I keep try to create something original and add my own twists to something "over done" or "cliche".

    Super duper excited for writing contests to be back! I'm going to try and enter them all now that I have some time and inspiration to get writing again. Also: my nanowrimo profile
    If you're doing nanowrimo this year you should totally add me as a writing buddy on there so I can heckle you over word count cry at how your word count is higher than mine check out your novel. :3

    I fell very behind in NaNoWriMo. I was lucky that I completed my notes that I made up for my story or else I would've dropped out. I didn't do any writing in the hospital and it took me a while to get back into the mood for writing. Last year, I fell behind, but I made it with two days to spare. I'm hoping the same happens here.

    Keeping up with the word count is really ridiculous at times. I might go to an all-night-write this weekend since I have to have my novel finished for class as well as personal satisfaction and I'm majorly behind.
