This community is for National Novel Writing Month participants.

The rules for the community are as follows:

  • You cannot post here unless you are a member.

  • This is a place for sharing your ideas, concerns, and (if you like) snippets from your NaNoWriMo novel. Please do not post personal entries here. When it's not NaNo month, feel free to discuss writing in general and post your work for critique.

  • Please be a friend and use LJ-Cut if you're going to post pieces of your writing! It helps greatly with the Friends Page loading time.

  • Creative theft will not be condoned in any way, shape, or form. I mean this very seriously. If you're inspired by someone else's idea and you come up with your own thing, that's great. More power to you. Cite your sources, and DO NOT plagiarize.

  • Be respectful. I do not tolerate flames. I do not tolerate insults to people on the basis of religion, race, or any other stupid trivial criteria. If you post a story that is a very thinly veiled flame of another member of the community you will be banned immediately.

  • Constructive criticism is welcomed and appreciated. As previously mentioned, flames or nitpicking for the sake of nitpicking will not be regarded kindly. Don't pick apart anybody else's writing just because you want to be a prick. Just because you think you're hot stuff doesn't mean the rest of the world agrees with you. You are expected to behave with the good manners your mother (hopefully) taught you. Keep that in mind.

That's about it for rules. Rules and conditions are subject to change; members will be informed of any changes as they happen.
