ETA: In order to keep this a small and more intimate setting for discussion, the community is closed to new members *except* in the case of people who are LJ "friends" of a current member. When commenting here to request membership, please let us know which of our current members referred you to our community. Thanks! :)
If you are friends with a current member and would like to join please do the following:
a) Comment to this entry with a brief outline of the novel you are planning to write. If you haven't gotten that far in planning, just post whatever idea you have, or something else describing how and why you're committed to doing NaNoWriMo this year. We're asking this because all members of this community *must* be planning to write a novel this November, or participated in the challenge last year, and we just want to assure ourselves that anyone who requests membership is serious about this before we wave them in.
b) Go to the user info page for this community, and follow the link that says "to join this community, click here." Then follow the instructions for requesting membership. You won't automatically be added to the group, as membership is restricted, but as soon as we've read your intro comment, we'll approve you with full posting rights.
