My idea for the coming month: unless you have a really compelling reason to avoid it, I think everyone on Steve should sign up for Camp NaNo.
1. Compelling reasons aside, it's basically something you'd be doing anyway, only with a slightly stronger feel of 'challenge' to it and an extra incentive to make it a more or less daily thing.
2. You can set just about any goal you like - words, hours, minutes, lines, pages.
3. The lowest goal number you can choose is 30, so if that applies to all of those things, you could be signing up for a goal as low as one word per day for the month. (Note: I don't actually know if this is true. There's probably different minimum goals for the different goal types.)
4. It gives us a unifying theme for Steve - regardless of what goals and projects, we'd all have the same goal of not slipping behind in our Camp goal.
So, what do we all think of this idea? Also, do we want/need a Steve cabin? I'd be inclined to say no to that, because we already have the forum here for chatter and a cabin would just double up our normal conversation.

I already signed up for Camp two days ago.
I wasn't going to do it, but changed my mind on a whim because it's a challenge wrapped around what I'm doing anyway. I have no problem with separate cabins. I'm already in my friend's cabin. I'm doing 1800 minutes - ~ an hour of writing a day. I'll be working on Lantern and tbd short stories.
Very glad they let us customize our goals this time.

Hey guys, there might be a spot or two left in the AW cabin. We've already got a few people from Sisyphus there. If interested in joining, post on this thread, be sure you've got a project filled out, then rep Maxwell with your NaNo username. Spots are filling up, so it's pretty much first come first serve.

I've signed up and created a project (and also tested and found that you really can set a goal of 30 words). At the moment I'm not in a cabin - probably just sticking with my blue tent this year, I think. Less to think about.
Siana Blackwood: looking at my wip list with the usual feeling of "I don't even know what happens in these, so how am I supposed to write a summary?"

Jᴀy V. Aꜱᴛᴇʀ 💀🐍: Maybe a list of WIPs but instead of a summary it's one fun fact or one thing you really love about it? Or skip the list and post what you're listening to. Half the point of this place isn't to be strict but to just have fun and interact.
