@anne_the_noob14 Well, in my own opinion, 2,212 is MUCH more hopeful to hear than only 454. 😛
@r-m-archer That’s what I thought! 😀

@r-m-archer 😀 😛
@eden-anderson Yes, I suppose 😛 (I was talking to a friend earlier this week and he said “yeah, in 2016 I only got 41,000…” Like. ONLY 41,000? 😛 )
I’m writing AT LEAST 10,000 this year. A fifth is a nice goal. Although maybe I should set my goal for 20,000. Idk. We’ll see.

@eden-anderson The-Land-Of-Shame! Thank you for the seat.😄
@anne_the_noob14 I play on Java edition, so there are no “friends”☹️. But wouldn’t it be awesome if someone made a Story Embers Minecraft server! I mean, yeah, it would just be another thing distracting people from writing……buuuttt it would be a community distraction.😋
@r-m-archer OOOH chocolate! Yes. Next time, next time for sure. *stares dramatically off into the distance*

@anne_the_noob14 If I make it to 41,000, I will be very pleased with myself. 🙃
@pookiemonster Yes, welcome! Make yourself comfortable. 😊

I literally just started thinking about maybe doing NaNoWriMo yesterday.
Do you guys think it would be a good idea or no?
Frankly, I think it’d be good for me. I’m just scared to try it.October 16, 2019 at 3:31 pm #99038
@kari-karast Yes! It’s challenging, keeps one accountable, provides an automatic community, provides an excuse to carve out writing time, and it’s just FUN. Even if you don’t hit the full word count, it can be great for getting words down and stretching you out of your comfort zone. 🙂

Yeah, that makes sense.October 16, 2019 at 5:21 pm #99047
@kari-karast Everything that @r-m-archer says.
(I don’t actually know if what she says is true, because I’ve never done NaNo before…but I’m trusting that she speaks the truth. 😉)

@kari-karast Do it! It’ll be fun at least! We can be buddies and keep each other on track if you’ll send me your username once you set it up! (If you end up using the site)

@eden-anderson Okay then. XD
@anne_the_noob14 I’ll let you know!October 17, 2019 at 7:53 am #99060Emberynus The Dragonslayer@emberynus-the-dragonslayer
@r-m-archer How do you do NaNoWriMo? I’d never really heard of it till I got on Story Embers and I don’t really know what it is.
Yeah, I know, I’m weird

@emberynus-the-dragonslayer NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and it’s an event in November where you aim to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Technically, all you have to do to participate is choose to take on the challenge and write, but you can also join the official site (nanowrimo.org) to track your progress, hang out on the forums, earn fun badges, etc. (And there are sponsor offers of writing things, too, so if you go through the official site you can get discounts off of various writing tools for participating and/or winning.) But the site isn’t crucial to participating, it’s just a helpful tool.
NaNoWriMo is kind of a crazy challenge, but I’ve personally found it super helpful for boosting productivity, providing accountability, and helping me get to know my writing process on various projects.
