When the time comes, how do we begin?


Since I'm new at this, when July gets here...how do we begin to start our word count? Do we do it under the Julnowrimo section, and keep our own forum/writing section? I'm not sure I understand how we keep the word count going and track it.

Um...I'd assume you do it like NaNo? Write in a word document etc, use a word counting application/ the MS Word word count feature and then put the number of words in our profile?

You keep track of it yourself but there's also a section in your profile to edit the little word count bar that everyone has under their name. It's currently disabled, since it's not July, but Robert will make sure it's back up in time for everyone's first exciting input on 01 July. [:

Yeah, we kind of work on the honor system here. :) No validation is required, and you don't need to post what you write if you do not want to.

Lets see. July 1st will come up. You type like your life depends on it. Well your character's lives depend on it, unless you kill them in the end, in which case it means their lives depend on not writing. Oh well, if you kill them off, pretend like they will die if you don't write their deaths. Anyway, a little off topic. I think you just count the words yourself and them put the number in the counter.

Like NaNo, It's honor system. which means the only one you hurt by putting in false info is yourself. Because you didn't earn that number like the others. And since there is only bragging rights as the prize, you really don't win that if you really didn't do it.

Wow I'm all over the place a bit. I guess that's what you get when you don't sleep right. Oh well, reading and writing veto sleep.

July 1st is coming soon. Time to get that outline well-rounded. This is the first time I've tried this site. I hope writing during the month of July will be more productive and less stressful than in November. I've already put my family on notice - July is ME Time.8-)

Yes, I was wondering that too. I'm glad to know the WC thing is disabled at the moment, I didn't know if I had to do something with it to get it set up. Cheers.

Check out this article NanoWrimo Applied which gives the low down on how to get started and keep the word count climbing.

Those are really good tips, I actually keep a copy of No Plot? No Problem! next to me at all times during NaNo, and now I will for JulNo. It's not as daunting to me now that I've already done it once, because I know that it's something that I can achieve again.

So, um, it's really 1 July according to my country's GMT. But there is still no changing in user control panel.
How do I update my word count?

Thanks

It just hasn't been activated yet -- it's not on an automated system, so we have to wait for Robert to go in and manually turn it on. He was on vacation 'til today, though. So, no worries, it'll be on within the next few days. [:
