National Novel Writing Month is pretty well known. National Comic
Writing Month is (currently) less so.So, what's it all about?derryderrydown
decided they needed something to kick them up the butt when it came to getting move on with comics they were planning. And then they figured other people might need the same. At this point, NaCoWriMo began to expand into something to
help them.Rules? We don't need no steenkin' rules!
Actually, we do. But, as we're Benevolent
Dictators, the rules are fairly straightforward.
* The challenge is to script and/or draw a 24-page comic, starting on November 1, 2004, and finishing before November 30, 2004. Tying in to NaNoWriMo's 50,000 word target and on the grounds that a picture's worth a thousand words, there must be a bare minimum of fifty panels.
* We know that it's going to be more of a challenge to do this if art is included. Therefore, collaboration is allowed, with separate people doing scripting, pencilling, inking and colours. Please, one person per task.
* We're trusting you not to claim you've succeeded when you haven't. Else there will be no cookies.
* Depending on volume, we can probably host completed comics/artwork, if anyone wants. We're also happy to link to them on your own webspace.
* The admins' word is final. Any disagreement between admins will be settled by a chocolate-eating contest, with the winner paying for the chocolate.
* We are all batshitcrazy.Gee, this sounds a really good idea! How do I join up?
