At 1PM on October 31, there was a discussion about novel writing at the Milk Wood sim. The speaker was Huckleberry Hax, a writer of SL fiction such as the novel "AFK."
ღ Harri ღ (Harriet Gausman): It's National Novel Writing Month again! Prepare yourself for pep talks! If there's one thing aspiring novelists can rely on in the month of November (besides sleep deprivation and bleeding fingertips) it's other writers delivering their 'top tips' for getting 50,000 words written in the space of 30 days.
Huckleberry talked for about an hour, about his various experiences writing. Among his rules was to believe in your novel, talk about it some to others (though don't overdo it), and find some way to keep track of your progress. The event was followed by a small party elsewhere in the sim.
Milk Wood is the location of Camp NaNoWriMo, and supports a number of writing events. November is listed as National Novel Writing Month.
