• National Pony Writing Month

    One of the EQD pre-readers is running an event in September, similar to the National Novel Writing event.

    Hello everypony, Siraj here, otherwise known as Noble Cause, with an event for all those writerly types around here.  Some of you know of National Novel Writing Month, taking place in November.  For those unfamiliar with it, the idea is to write 50,000 words in 30 days.  No, I’m not asking those interested to do it at the same time, that would be an exercise in insanity akin to Pinkie Pie levels.  I noticed that September also has the standard 30 day timeframe, so that’s the plan for the first ever National Pony Writing Month.

    Anypony willing to participate can do so, even if you’ve never put pencil to paper or hooves to keyboard with such a goal in mind before.  The only criteria are that it has to be pony-related, you’re able to begin at midnight on September 1st, and that pencils are down and the last letter is typed by midnight local time on September 30th.  No sneaking in a few more words at 12:01 a.m. on October 1st.  If you’re interested, e-mail Eqnapowrimo@gmail.com, and put ‘NaPoWriMo’ in the subject line.  I look forward to everypony’s attempt, and with luck, we’ll end up with a few more fics to give ‘Fallout: Equestria’, ‘Dangerous Business’, ‘Memories of Days Long Past’, and ‘Past Sins’ a run for their bits.
