Welcome to Mini-Nano 2018

Hello, everyone! It’s your mod here! And it is time to get this comm in gear for another year.

I am pleased to announce the mini_wrimo comm is open for business again! If you've wandered by and aren't sure what mini-nano is about, you can find our mission statement on our profile page, here.


What does this mean?

We are officially accepting new members again!

Spread the word, mini_wrimo is coming! This is fun! Exciting! November is our month to get that pesky writing project finished (or off to a good start). So sign up today (well as soon as I get the sign-up post up!) and tell all your friends and get them to join too. It will be awesome; I promise!

Sign-Ups begin! (Our sign up post is up. And sign ups will continue until November 8. But the challenge starts on November 1, so please sign up early if you can.)

Your lovely mod is also looking for some help with banners for this challenge! The more the merrier. The more help I get, the faster we will all get recognition and rewards at the end of the challenge! So, if you would like to help with banners for this challenge, they would be most welcome!

If you have any questions, ask them here and we will do our best to answer them promptly. Please make sure you've read our profile info, as it may already have the info you need!

Welcome back! We are going to have a great mini_wrimo for 2018!

2018 Sign-ups Post!

This post is for SIGN-UPS ONLY. If you have questions for the mods, please go here to ask them.

Okay, so this is how it works:

This challenge runs from Nov. 1 to Nov. 30th. The goal is to write something every day for thirty days. What that something is, is up to you. All fandoms or original work is welcome, all pairings, all genres. Sounds simple enough, right?

What YOU need to do:

1. JOIN THE COMMUNITY. I cannot emphasize this enough. You must join the community to see the daily prompt posts! You must join the community to sign up! Because this signup post is going up so late, signups will be open through November 8. However, the challenge begins on November 1. Sign ups by people who have not joined the community will not be tracked.

2. COMMENT TO THIS POST. Make a comment to this post with your daily word commitment. Minimum commitment is 100 words per day, every day, for 30 days. There is no max, but try to keep it real.

Reminder: everything you do in this comm revolves around the subject line of your comment. You will need to go to the comm to input information as some LJ Styles do not show/give a subject line when commenting.

When commenting to this post, use the following format:
Subject: Sign Up: [username], [word count]

Example: Sign Up: Paleogymnast, 100

3. REPORT IN EVERY DAY. When the prompt post for the day goes up, comment with your word count for the day, in the required format (more on that later). If you like, you can also include a sample of your writing or a link to it, but you are not required to show your work.

And that's it. Your friendly neighborhood mods will take care of the rest, tracking your count and reporting days. At the end of the month, we'll post the (positive) results.

So come on! Sign up! Get your friends to sign up! You know you wanna! (*psst* It’ll be fun!!)

P.S. If you sign up after the challenge starts, but write prior to your sign up, you can still get credit for your writing. Keep an eye out for the amnesty post.

Signups 2017

This post is for SIGN-UPS ONLY. If you have questions for the mods, please go here to ask them.

2. COMMENT TO THIS POST. Make a comment to this post with your daily word commitment. Minimum commitment is 100 words per day, every day, for 30 days. There is no max, but try to keep it real.

Your lovely mod is also looking for some help with banners for this challenge! I can do them myself if I absolutely have to, but I would love, love love to get some help on the banner front.

As I am only in my second year of modding this comm, I will have to ask you all to bear with me. I will try to get everything posted on time and in the manner to which you are all accustomed, but there is a learning curve, and I am still learning, so bear with me, and I promise not to make too many mistakes.

Welcome back! We are going to have a great mini_wrimo for 2017!

Gauging Interest in DW Crossposting

[Public Post]

In previous years, mini_wrimo has been strictly an LJ based community. However, last year there was some interest in us crossposting to Dreamwidth. It is not possible to use DW's crosspost function between communities, which would require crossposting by hand.

The mods are open to the idea of crossposting to DW--we already requisitioned the comm and mod account names over there--but to take on that extra work, there would have to be significant interest in mini_wrimo over on Dreamwidth. So. First of all: spread the word. Let all your friends know that mini_wrimo is again open for business this year. We always want as many people to sign up as possible.

Second: Get people who want or prefer to use Dreamwidth to comment to this post, indicating their interest. If we can get at least 20 people who want to use Dreamwidth instead, we will crosspost across both platforms.

EDIT: mini_wrimo is NOT leaving LJ. There is NO NEED to comment in favor of staying on LJ. This is only to gauge interest in CROSSPOSTING to DW.

Last Day for Sign Ups!

Today is the LAST DAY to sign up for the 2013 MiniWriMo challenge! If you've been holding off/holding out against signing up, today is your LAST CHANCE.

If you are going to participate this year, please make sure that you have a) JOINED the comm and b) made a WORD COMMITMENT. Starting tomorrow, people who have not made a word commitment will have their membership revoked and people who have not joined the comm will not be able to see the comm's entries.

Tomorrow, we will also be posting a list of everyone who has signed up & their stated word commitment. Please be sure to look for this list tomorrow and make sure that your user name and word commitment are correct. This will also be the chance for you to either increase or reduce your word commitment if you so choose (though 100 is still the minimum).

I hope you're all as excited as we are!
