NaNoWriMo @ Bookstacks

31 Oct

(Inter)National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is upon us, and while Bookstacks is not a writers’ community, we do support the writers within Second Life.


Bookstacks will be hosting write-ins throughout the month. Each session is an hour, but you are welcome to stay longer.

To inject a little fun, we assign themes to the write-ins as an excuse to dress up; participation is completely optional. Also, you are welcome to find a comfy place anywhere on Bookstacks Isle to write at any time.

Day Date Time Theme
Wed Nov. 4 5 pm Halloween Redux – wear your Halloween costume again
Thurs. Nov. 5 5 pm Oldest wearable item in your inventory
Thurs. Nov. 12 5 pm Hats and spurs
Fri. Nov. 13 5 pm The space age
Wed Nov. 18 5 pm It’s a glamorous life
Thurs. Nov. 19 5 pm Virtual pets don’t need feeding
Wed Nov. 25 5 pm Pick your era
Thurs. Nov. 26 5 pm Sleepover
Fri. Nov. 27 5 pm This is my job


Daily Suggestions

We will also be posting a daily suggestion to  incorporate into your writing if you wish. It will give you something to write about when your juices dry. The prompt will be posted in both the Bookstacks group and the NaNoWriMo SL group.


Bookstacks will give away a month’s stay on the Second Life cruise ship SS Galaxy to one SL NaNoWriMo participant. To win, you need to complete 50,000 words by Nov. 30 as verified by and register for the draw at the Bookstacks Pub.
