Anyone doing NaNoWriMo this year? It's the first time I'm going to give it a try. I'm pretty sure I won't hit the word count but...we'll see.

Oh good stuff Taf! It’s my sixth consecutive go and possibly the one I’m least excited for, but I’m ploughing on anyway. Whatchu writing?

I have tried it a whole bunch of times, technically I have completed it twice. I used to write a lot, I won't be trying it this year though, basically I just have too much other stuff on the go... Best of luck to all of you who do though.

It’s all about shunning your responsibilities over the weekend and writing enough to make up for the week!

Didn't follow up on this sorry. This 'Really?' was more about the rules of self promotion. I don't think there are any are there? I know I've hawked the game I'm working on here, and various people have posted art projects and the like!

And congrats on the book, that's strawberry floating brilliant!

thanks

its about 351 pages long and its five stories about a group of friends with elemental powers who live on a floating island and who are summoned to world made of video game data and protect it from monsters

target audience is pre teens but i hope like other things aimed at younger people all sorts will enjoy it

That certainly sounds a good read. It sounds inspired by Power Rangers and other similar shows.

Also, I'd written it before but mustn't have hit submit - I'm practically a walking advertisement banner, and I've had no issues. I think so long as you're not trying to pester people into buying into your brand, you're good.

power rangers is one of the few things that didnt inspire it

i wouldnt try a force people to buy (not on purpose anyway) just spread the word a little

Ace. Seems like we both have used the same concepts within our stories. Any chance yours is available digitally on Amazon?
