SimNaWriMo 2016!
Sims National Writing Month

Hello all, and welcome to the first ever SimNaWriMo, a sim story writing event, closely based on the principles of the original NaNoWriMo!

First of all, a big thank you to MichelleCYoung for originally suggesting to us of a sim version of NaNoWriMo!

For those that don't know, NaNoWriMo is a challenge to write a story of 50,000 words in a month. Now, that would be very difficult to do with sims stories, so we have come up with our own version of an intense sim-story version writing month! In principle, this is an event where we aim to write and publish as many updates of a new, or current legacy/challenge/sims story within one month, to celebrate the art of writing, and simming all in one go!

Here's how it goes...

- Choose a story you are currently writing, or you can start a completely new one!
- You play, and update your story as much as you possibly can within the month of October.
- The story can be ANY form of story, e.g a legacy, a challenge, a fictional story, but it must be the SAME story all the way through to count towards your update tally.
- Updates must consist of at least 20 slides, OR 1000 words, OR 10 pictures and at least 500 words. This is to make it fair for those who tend to write more words per slide, ie. plotty stories.

The 'Levels' of the challenge, and the medals given are:
Image Bronze Award - 3 Updates In October
Image Silver Award - 7 Updates In October
Image Gold Award - 10+ Updates In October

You will also win house points for achieving any of the above achievements.
- 25 points for Bronze
- 50 points for Silver
- 75 points for Gold

When you have decided what story you want to enter with, please go over to our sign up's thread here and post what story you're using, so we can add it to the official list.

We also have two other threads:
SimNaWriMo Hints, Tips and Questions!
SimNaWriMo General Chat Thread

The event will run from 1st of October to the 31st of October - meaning you have a good few weeks to plan and get ahead of yourself! Good luck!! :D
