|Very late notice: KiwiNoWriMo

Prompts for Creative Writers
I know, I've been slack, shut up.|
Since you like writing, and it's holidays for you uni students, go check out kiwinowrimo. Basically, it's like the big international NaNoWriMo*, only at a different time of year, one more suitable to the task.
For those of you that don't know, National Novel Writing Month, or
NAMBLA NaNoWriMo, is a month wherein one writes a novel 50,000 words in 31 days. (That's just over 1,600 words a day! Peanuts!) The novel will suck. It will suck hard. But afterwards, you will be able to say that you've written a novel, and that you did it in a month. How cool is that?
I'm actually telling you this really late, though. See, it starts on Monday 25th June at 00:00 and goes till the 25th of July at 24:00. But I only really made the decision to do it today. And then it occurred to me that you lot would like to play as well. Because I enjoy recruiting people for things that will
torture them horribly be really fun.
Now, at the end of week two when you want to die, you can't blame me. Blame starfirenz. It's her fault I know KiwiNoWriMo exists; I followed a link from her journal. :D **hides**
Sorry for the late notice. Oh, and you don't need to have a character or plot prepared. Apparently, it's more fun if you don't.
*I am aware of the discrepancy here: "international national"? The organizers, too, are aware of it. But NaNoWriMo sounds cool, so NaNoWriMo it is. What, you expected something more mature from people who thought up this mad idea?
