[06/29/11] It's Almost Time!


Most of you probably received the newsletter in your e-mail today, but in case you didn't - here's a recap!


Beginning July 1st, you will be able to update your word count from your profile page. However, this year you will also be able to update your word count from any page on the forums!

Some additional forum highlights & information:
- There is now a Local Meet-Up section if you are interested in writing with others in your area (http://forum.julnowrimo.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=119) If you don't see your area on the forum list, please suggest it at http://julnowrimo.com/?page=suggestion

- Tell everybody how you're doing in the Daily Progress Reports area: http://forum.julnowrimo.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=102

- Themed Wri-Days will be occurring throughout the month. The first two will be happening on Friday, July 1st and Monday, July 4th. More information can be found at http://forum.julnowrimo.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=8


As always, word warring will be taking place in the chat room and forum for those who need an extra boost. To help keep track of your progress, you can also download our Excel spreadsheet here: http://julnowrimo.com/julno-report-card2011.xls

Comments, suggestions, and questions are always welcome - please send them to webmaster@julnowrimo.com. See you at the finish line!



JulNoWriMo Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does it have to be a new novel, or can I continue a novel?
A: If you want to finish a novel you've already started, great! Just write 50,000 more words in July. :-)

Q: When does JulNoWriMo begin and end?
A: It begins promptly at midnight on July 1st (your local time). Your fingers can start pounding on the keys any time after that. JulNoWriMo ends on August 1st at midnight, so your last real day to write is the 31st. This is an advantage over NaNoWriMo because you get one extra day!

Q: Do I verify my word count somewhere?
A: As of right now, we trust you if you say that you won. We haven't been too successful in finding a word counter that was fairly accurate. Besides, if you try to cheat, the only person you're hurting is yourself.

Just please be sure to post your final word counts to your profile on the forums by around the second week of August, as this is when word counts are generally locked until next year.
