The do something different every month thread

posted by Jennifer on - last edited - Viewed by 266 users

So, rather than starting this one as a National Novel Editing Month thread, I'm going to make it generic, since there wasn't much interest in FAWM but there seemed to be interest here in doing something every month. :)

This month is National Novel Editing Month, for people to edit and polish their novels, as a compliment to National Novel Writing Month.

The monthly challenges I've found so far are:

January = January Animation Month (JAM), January Novel Writing Month (JaNoWriMo)
February = February Album Writing Month (FAWM)
March = National Novel Editing Month (NaNoEdMo)
April = Script Frenzy (100 pages of original scripted material: scripts, graphic novels, etc.)
July, August, September The 50/90 Challenge (50 songs in 90 days)
November = National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)

If you know any other monthly challenges, please post about them and I'll add them to this post. :)

  • JaNoWriMo comes to mind as well, which is just NaNoWriMo in January.

    I always start these with a good idea and stop 2 days in.

    Thanks. :) I hadn't heard of that one before. I like that they let you continue already started novels with that one, so you can finish your NaNoWriMo novel in January. :)

    I have a half finished novel I'm going to try finish and polish this month for the National Novel Editing Month. I haven't touched it since 2009, so I figure it's time to finish it up. :cool:

    Yeah, that's usually me too. The only one I have ever won was January Animation Month, and that was only because I started it and didn't feel it would be right if I didn't finish. :)

    I got 8 songs partially done in FAWM, but only one I consider complete (and that one's only just over a minute long). But it was the first time I ever really attempted to make a full song, so I'm still happy with it. :D

  • I was hoping this thread would mean everyone announcing they'd do something they normally different for a month :(

  • Okay, for the month of April, start screaming spontaneously whenever you hear the world 'Zookeeper'. That better?

    I meant something you frequently do, sillyface.
    Unless you work at a zoo, I'm not fussed
