I don't see a time frame in any of the threads. When does it start and end?

I added the time frame, I'll make a note to add that from now on because SimNaNoWriMo is going to be every year for as long as Boolprop exists. This is year 3. ^^

I'm still debating whether or not I will participate. It is very exciting to see everyone getting hyped for it though. Fun times ahead!

That's why I posted the threads now, a month early so people can debate or sign up early enough and there's still lots of time if they want to change their entry.

I don't think I have either? Wait, I may have missed one... *counting on fingers*

Either way, it's super fun! Thanks so much for hosting this, Ani! It's my favorite event of the year!

Do our stories have to be based on Challenges? Do we need pictures for each chapter/update?

I have a question - if I sign up with the Gordons and miraculous finish them during the NaNo month, what do I do?

Take a lot of pictures while you do it? :lol:
Do an epilogue?

Don't ever end the Gordons because they're too good for that?

I always use a current challenge/story. You can also start one for Nano by itself.

It's based on either x-amount of words or x-amount of pics. You can see the rules for clarification.

@ Rawla:

Your story can be a challenge, legacy or a regular story like Livvie's. And pictures would be best because if you just wanted to write text then it wouldn't look like a Sims story to me anyway. I do regular NaNo in November and that's just text and five times the word count too. 0_0

@DSLady:

If you finish the Gordons during SimNo and there's still time left then you get to chill while everyone else still updates. You don't HAVE to use all 30 days in September if you finish early that's awesome. You'd just have to wait until October 1st to get your medal.

I mean more like if I complete my legacy before I reach the end goal for SimNaNo - is there anything I can do or do I just have to lump it/try to drag it out? XD

You could try padding the updates with extra pics or as Livvie mentioned, do an epilogue and maybe do that in parts and drag that out.

You could monologue for a solid 10k in one update, DS ;) Maybe quote the entire text of Beowulf + some? Add pictures to it as you go...

You could also you know, start writing definitions for fun. PAD that word count out. XD

@DSLady:

You can add an epilogue and maybe a Behind the Scenes update to finish up any words you have left to get. Seems to be the consensus on what to do ^^
