Novel in 90 is a LiveJournal community started by Elizabeth Bear back in 2007. (Here’s her original not-FAQ.) It’s a kinder, gentler version of NaNoWriMo. The goal is only 750 words per day. There’s a daily post to the community, and everyone comments with their day’s progress. If that progress is less than 750 words, you’ll get mocked.
Since the first round ended, new ones have kicked off at irregular intervals; there’s often a New Year’s round from January 1 to April, a stragglers’ round starting in April, and a fall round beginning in September or October. The group that’s going right now started April 1.
My face-to-face group has been wanting to do this, but everyone had some work-related scheduling challenges (almost all of us work for the university in some capacity), and I had, you know, this looming deadline. So we postponed our start until May 15.
If your life runs on the school calendar, too, and you’d like to join us, come say hi.
