SimNaNo 2019: Update Thread

Post by Livvielove »

Image

To be unlocked on July 1st, 2019!

Event runs from July 1st at midnight to August 1st at midnight, Central US Time.
This is where I'll be keeping tabs on the updates and keeping your banners. If you do not wish your update banner to be public PLEASE PM ME (Livvielove). All banners are being displayed publicly unless I'm asked to otherwise.

Each time you post an update for SimNaNo, please come to this thread to report it! The preferred reporting method will be provided below.

This entire event is being held on the honor system! Please report your honest word count/picture count/update count! At the end of the day, I'm going to trust your numbers you give me, so keep that in mind when you post your count here! If it comes to light that you fudge numbers intentionally well... I'll be sad. Please don't make me sad!

If you have changed your goals/want to change your goals, please create a new response post in the Sign-Up Thread! This is important so I can know when people are adjusting their goal and can adjust the appropriate banners and numbers accordingly!

I highly recommend you keeping tabs on your own numbers beyond just individual update posts for a host of different reasons, the primary ones being: 1) I'm only human and inclined to make errors; and 2) it's a great self-motivator!
[hr]
To Update Your Counts:

When it's time for you to update your counts, come to this thread and reply to it with:
:check: The Name of Your Story
:check: The link to your update
:check: Your update count/picture count/word count for that particular update
:check: (OPTIONAL) The TOTAL update count/picture count/word count

Here's a template you can use for ease (though it's not required to be used, it's for those who like things simple and ready to go):

Code: Select all

[b]Story Name: [/b]
[b]Chapter Link: [/b]
[b]Chapter Word Count: [/b]
[b]Chapter Picture Count: [/b]
[b]Cumulative Word Count: [/b]
[b]Cumulative Picture Count: [/b]
[b]Cumulative Update Count: [/b]
If you notice any discrepancies in the numbers, please PM me (Livvielove) with the issue. If it's been a day or two and you've not seen your update get adjusted... I'm only human and while my July is pretty much cleaned out of things to do, I'm still human and may occasionally take breaks to write, myself!
[hr]
Update FAQ

How can I tell my word count?
Wordpress has a function that shows the word count as you write your blog posts there. There's also websites like THIS ONE which can also tell you!

What if my goals are not related to pictures/words/updates/etc? Should I still report that?
I say "yes" because it's really neat to see the numbers get bigger as you update, and who knows it might be worthwhile to see if you hit any of the other goals (such as SimNaNo Plus or Boost). As a side note, it's not required and you can report in only what pertains to your personal goal if that's what suits you.

I'm nervous/anxious/(insert other emotion or reason here) and feel hesitant to share my story updates publicly, what can I do?
We're all writers and we're all learning together! This event is to have fun! However, if you feel this way don't hesitate to PM me! We can work something out for you!

I want to change my goal/change my story/change my links, can I do that?
Absolutely! You can change everything up until 11:59pm (central time) on July 31st! It's no hassle to me, but if you find yourself changing your goal very frequently (2-3 times a day) then we might need to talk. ;) I'm flexible, though, and have absolutely no qualms if any goals need to be changed!

I want to change my goal/change my story/change my links, HOW should I do that?
Please create a new post on the Sign-Up Thread stating you're changing your goals and to what you wish to change them to. This is more so I can be alerted when goals are changed, as after June 30th, I won't be doing any more "once-overs" on the goals unless notified!

It's after July 1st, can I still sign up and join?
Absolutely! You can sign up to join as late as 11:59pm on July 31st! Granted, I'd recommend doing so *sooner* so you can actually have time to post an update or two. ;)

I don't post that frequently/I'm trying to do this in one swoop, is that ok?
Absolutely! The amount of times you update doesn't matter at all! If you want to post in one grand swoop and knock out all of your goals, more power to you! Keep in mind though that I can't update your banner unless you post on this thread, though, so your banner won't reflect your progress as accurately as it will others who do post more on a more frequent basis!

Can I wait until all of my updates are finished and post them all at once here?
Sure, if that's what you'd like to do, go for it! See the question above regarding progress banners not being as accurate though!
