DOOM

Do you want to write a book but haven't made the time to yet? Have you contemplated doing NaNoWriMo, but then got too intimidated?
Well, I have good news for you. DOOM.
Photo from Amanda, the lovely maker of DOOM.
Officially, it stands for Definitely O-normous O-uthor Months, with the "O's" pronounced "E" and "A," respectively.
DOOM will be in March and April. We'll still be writing 50,000 words, but over two months. So, if you want to do Camp NaNoWriMo at a slower pace, or you just want to get some writing in—whatever your reason, come join us!
You can find posts on Amanda's (she came up with the idea of DOOM with a friend, I believe) blog, The Ramblings of a Wayward Author, that talk about DOOM here and here.
Personally, I'm really excited to do this. I loved doing NaNoWriMo, and I'll do it again and again and again. But I also think that if I would've done it  at a slower pace, it would've been so much better. I believe Amanda said something along the same lines.
How to Join:
-You can comment on one of the DOOM posts on Amanda's blog, letting her know you're joining.
-If you have a Facebook account, Amanda created a group for DOOM right here. Ask to join, and you're committed! (I think, anyway. It would probably still be a good idea to let her know on her blog, too, just to be all sure and stuff.)
If you have any questions, you're supposed to direct them to this email: awikoff16@gmail.com
Amanda said she wanted DOOM to have a community like NaNoWriMo, so the more people, the better!
I hope you all join us. :)

  2. That's a really good idea! I reached my 50K goal for NaNoWriMo, but it seems like such a blur because of how fast it went. 61 days just might be perfect for writing a novel. You have a bit more time to focus on quality, but you're still on a tight enough time crunch that you can't afford to procrastinate. It sounds good to me!
    PS - Congrats on your 100th post, Bekah! :)
