The Post of Exclamation Points

Well, NaNoWriMo is over.

Most of you are thankful that December is here, ready for the slow and steady plod through editing and second drafting (and third and fourth and fifth) until it’s time start it all over again in November 2013.

Others are apparently crazy nuts like me.

A moment of digression, if you will. As you can see, I am a fanfic writer. Yes, it’s mostly Supernatural and Okage: Shadow King fiction, but that will soon change. (Oh boy, will that change). And one of the things I thought to myself as I prepared for NaNo this year was “Damn, I’d really like to do a NaNoWriMo for only fanfics. It’d be like month-long convention of awesomeness!” I considered writing a fanfic for the November’s NaNoWriMo, but alas, I had a great idea for an original work that was beating on the inside of my skull to get out first. But I didn’t give up the idea…

Anyway, even though November is only days behind us (and Christmas looming), I feel the need to jump into the writing frenzy once more. I also want to drag as many of you out there with me.

So, a proposal for the fanfic writers out there: I present to you…


Starting in January (that’s right, JANUARY 2013), join me in 50,000 words in 30 (*cough-one-cough*) days! Choose your fandom! Write like the wind! Churn out those fanfictions like never before! Length doesn’t matter, only total word count contributed by the end of the month!

Got an epic romance for your OTP just burning to get out? WRITE IT IN JANUARY!

Have a series of drabble length character studies for your favorite television show? WRITE THEM IN JANUARY!

Did you hate the end of a movie and you just KNOW you can do better? WRITE IT IN JANUARY!

Join me, writers! Join me in the epic craziness that is fandom! Join me in FanFicWriMo!

I hope to see you all there!




PS: Details on a public chat room/forums are coming up… as soon as I figure them out. -E
