NaNoWriMo

It's mid-November and I don't think there's been a NaNoWriMo post yet this year. How goes the NaNo? What are you writing? [more inside]

"Her fresh voice will be very welcome in the SF world."

Congratulations to MeFi's own Andrhia, whose new novel Revision has shown up in so many neat places recently: NPR ... Tor.com ... Mary Robinette Kowal's "My Favorite Bit" column ... The Qwillery ... Publishers Weekly (starred review) ... And, just a few days ago, Kirkus. [more inside]

NaNoWriMo 2013

Nanowrimo is a week away, are any Mefites taking part this year? If so, are you a planner or a pantser, and what are you thinking of doing? Last year we had our own Metafilter group and several people took part. If anyone took part last year or previously, share your joys and despairs, and any dirty tricks you used, so that any n00bs out there who don't know what Nano is like can know a bit about what to expect.

PhoBWanKenobi's debut

Today I picked up Starglass, the first book by mighty Metafilterian PhoBWanKenobi. I've dragged myself away from it, barely, to eat and drink and go to the bathroom -- and to post these congratulations to her for writing an exciting, introspectively illuminating novel. [more inside]

Zombies vs. bears vs. monkeys

This is a great question but it didn't include the obligatory "For the purposes of a work of fiction..." disclaimer to keep it from being deleted as hypothetical filter.

online novel forum

As I don't have a forum for myself anymore, I thought I'd throw an obscure post into metafilter to see if anyone bites.

As you may or may not know, I've started an novel online... now, I was wondering what the interest would be in setting up a system where anyone could create an account and their own books (main advantage being ability to get instant feedback and edit anywhere). I've already set up a CMS with full CM pages. But if I made it public, would people come? It's not quite a journal, not a blog, and while some of the features are similar, there's different stuff behind this.

What do people think?
