WooNoWriMo 2018 Wrap-Up!

Hey Wooster Writers,

I promised myself I’d updates once a week throughout November, but exams and final papers kicked my a$$ the last few weeks and it slipped my mind. So, What The Fuck happened?

*Redacted* finished her NaNoWriMo challenge early, I don’t think it was the twentieth yet by the time I got the message. So congrats to her.

I was doing okay until the last three days when I had to get down to business on my Junior I.S. so I did Pretty good on my 100 words a day challenge and dropped the ball at the very last moment. *HEAVY SIGH* I haven’t touched my document since. I made a promise to myself to turn winter break into my novel completion month, which is debatable whether I can manage it, but I’m determined. I plan to work at regular hours and not go to bed until I finish so… we’ll see.

We had an unproductive last two meetings: Promptsgiving, which I made a pie and whipped cream for, and our last meeting movie night where I think everyone enjoyed our impromptu screening of She-Ra? I enjoyed it.

As for the future of writing club: Annabelle is leaving for France next semester (we’ll miss you), we’re talking about starting elections when I get back, and we’re building the Writing Club Calendar.

If you have any prompts, writing structures, other suggestions you want to see over next semester please email me at my wooster email!

The WooNoWriMo Diaries 2018 Day 2!

Hey y’all,

Welcome to Wooster Novel Writing Month (*external screaming*). *Name Redacted* and I are starting the month off write (PUN) with one day under our belts.*Name Redacted* is doing full blown NaNoWriMo (respect), and is already at a whopping 6,465 words! I sat down with her to see how:

Hope: *Name Redacted* how the f*ck*???

*Name Redacted*: Is this an interview?

HS: Yes.

NR: I wrote down words. ‘Sometimes that be how it do’ ((1)). No thanks to the Common Grounds atmosphere.

HS: *laughter*

NR: I learned that ‘sometimes that be how it do’ is a Carson quote, so you should probably cite Carson.

Insightful. I am doing the Wooster Junior I.S. adjusted version of NoWriMo, which has no word count goal, but I’m promising to write at least 100 words a day. I’m off to a late start because I promised I would get at least the first part of my third pass outline (there’s four passes total) done before I started writing. So I’m at glorious 190 words and hoping to get more done.

Our plan is to meet once a day, we started a group chat for WooNoWriMo participants to let you know when/where we’re writing and get motivation. We’re also getting ready for today’s meeting “Pitchin’ NaNo Hardcore with *Name Redacted*,” and doing word sprints. So hopefully that helps us strengthen our writing quads before a month long writing marathon.


*Name Redacted*: 1,667 words per day.

Hope: 100+ words per day.

Camp WooNoOutMo April 2018!!!

Hey ya’ll,

*evil laugh*


Sup, it’s Wooster Novel Outlining Month or WooNoOutMo. Specifically Camp WooNoOutMo. As you know, or do not know, NaNoWriMo has a sister program: Camp NaNoWriMo. Basically its diet NaNoWriMo. You get to choose the goal and the form (so actually the acronym is wrong…*sad face*). Therefore as this is the month leading up to Camp WooNoWriMo, March will serve as your time to prepare for the torment which you have saddled yourself with.

If you want to be part of our Camp NaNoWriMo cabin please email me your Camp NaNoWriMo username. We’re going to be doing extra write-ins to discuss our projects and shame each other into writing and CAMP DAY in which we’ll make smores? while we write… at night.

Are Your Hands Wet?
