Thread: Welcome to WF NaPoWriMo - Q&A

    As to the 30 in 30, these can be posted on nonconsecutive days, correct? It isn't going to be...When the bell toils one, you have missed your day and therefore everything that has come before is now null and void. I'm under the assumption it is similar to NaNoWriMo, where as long as you get 50,000 words in the allotted 30 days you don't turn into a pumpkin, essentially that there is no quota per day. It would stand one in good stead to do one per day, then you aren't scrambling, but it isn't a requirement, is it?

    I'm kind of interested to join because this will test your SANITY. haha.
    I've been lurking around the posts made last year and I can't quite get where to post your poem.

    and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

    Poem threads you don't want to workshop can go here: http://www.writingforums.com/forums/230-NaPoWriMo . Basically, start a thread in the NaPoWriMo forum, just like you would in the standard poetry forum. By posting it here, NaPo poems won't get lost among the regular posts to the main poetry forum.

    If you want to keep first rights to your work then you can post a thread to the NaPoWriMo Workshop subforum found here: http://www.writingforums.com/forums/...WriMo-Workshop .

    Essentially, yes. 30-in-30. If you loll around for 29 days and knock off 30 in one, you've still done it. I do not recommend this approach.

    astroannie, Queen and Boss of NaPoWriMo here,
    Would it be OK to put up a thread a little in advance, a way of anticipating and getting more people committed as well?
    Would a catchy title be acceptable, like Ella Romps to Victory (hmm, that would jinx it)?

    (I warmed up on the moon the other night, got a poem sort of... Will put it in the warm-up thread).

    I'm not sure what you're asking. Opening your thread should be okay. Jinxing it--maybe not.

    As for warming up ... thus spake annie ...
    • PrinzeCharming is doing his warmups in a blog. That would be one option.
    • Another option would be to post poems in the regular poetry spaces.
    • If you want to do a running free-for-all/throw-down/slam-type of warm-up, you might consider the Poetry Prompts and Word Games.


    Posting non-NaPoWriMo poetry in the NaPoWriMo space is a recipe for confusion.
