This is a pony version of the self challenge called NaNoWriMo. For those who haven't heard of it, NaNoWriMo is a challenge that happens in November, to write 50,000 words in a month. Since November isn't for a while, here we are. For the month of July, challenge yourself into writing a new story.

There will be 3 levels of writing.
Easy- write 25,000. (Around 834 words a day.)
Moderate- write 38,000. (Around 1,267 words a day.)
Advanced- write 50,000 (Around 1,667 words a day.)

In the threads, you can ask for advice, share ideas, talk, and anything you want. (As longs as it's related to writing.)

Follow site rules (duh)

Now hate, or calling someone out on their writing

No posting anything no related to writing. (You know who you are.)

When finished, post your stories into the appropriate folders.

All stories must be published by August 14th. (I added two weeks to include proofreading and editing.) You can publish early for multi-chapters, or for multiple stories, but you must have your word count published by August 14th.

And most of all just have fun. Get creative. Feel free to lock yourself in your bedroom with a box full of snacks, and a pot of coffee. We won't judge.

Make sure to share this with your friends also. Let's get as many ponies as we can!

Pony writing month is an awesome idea, consider me signed up!

415554 Of course. Also if you're interested. Camp NaNoWriMo starts in July. Here is a link. That's designed for all types of stories. In camp you can set your own word count. If you do the official NaNoWriMo (Here is a link) in November, then it's a set word count of 50,000.

I'll be doing an actual story, but now I know that way can work as well. ^^

415550 :pinkiegasp: You got me there. You can do it that way. Just PM your word count and a link to your blog. I had originally planned for everyone to put their stories in folders on here. That way everyone can access them when they're finished, and I know who to send the certificates to.

By anything I was more referring to genre... but good to know. And if it is put into a blog then it doesn't have to be about ponies... it just can't be rated mature... since blogs are wide access.

415548 Yep, it can be about anything. (Well it has to have ponies to be published on here.)

So then the challenge is to just write a 50,00 word (for advanced level) story in the month of June? It can be about anything?

415544 Next month. Considering this month is already half over.

Is this for this month, or next month?

415536 Anyone can join. You don't have to ask. :twilightsmile:

Hey Moon I'd like to join you if that's fine :twilightsheepish:
