good morning, fellow squadians!
and welcome back to yet another NaNoWriMo! I am so extremely excited to join this crazy writing adventure with you all, and I cannot WAIT to see what amazing stories are going to be written this month! And now that NaNoWriMo is finally here, it is officially time to introduce everyone to 2018’s NaNoWriMo Dare Squad!
And let me tell you what, guys — I am severely excited about this years Squad. We’ve got SO MANY returning members, as well as some new faces, and I am just so beyond thrilled that you’re all willing to publicly humiliate yourselves for the world to see!!!
wait what Literally nothing could warm my heart on this cold November day more than that. <3
So without any further ado — ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, cupcakes and marshmallow fronds, it is with the deepest pride and greatest pleasure that I introduce you all to. . .
. . .2018’s NaNoWriMo Dare Squad. . .
So there you have it, folks! Those are your fellow Squadians! Those happy little marshmallows up there are going to be your pocket-sized best friends throughout the month of November, so go ahead and give them all a hug and a cookie and introduce yourself down in the chat below!!! Tell us what your project for the month is. Tell us what your hobbies are. Give us some random facts and obsessions about yourself so that we can all be one big happy bloggy family for a month!
And now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go get some writing done. It’s the first day of NaNoWriMo, and I — the smudgiest thought — have a book to write.

. . . DAILY PROMPT QUESTIONS FROM BEFORE THE REVAMP . . .
Wednesday, Nov. 1st — QUESTION OF THE DAY
- Today is a day of beginnings, so share your NaNoWriMo project’s opening line down in the chat below! (if you’re uncomfortable doing this, that is totally okay. i know some people don’t like sharing their work online, so if that’s you, feel free to discuss some of your absolute FAVORITE opening lines that you’ve read!)
Monday, Nov. 5th (wow. these really are daily. ahahahahahaha. #fail) — QUESTION OF THE DAY
- Now that it’s Day Five of NaNoWriMo, we’ve
hopefullyfinally begun to push on through the rough beginnings of our glorious stories and are staring to blaze new trails towards the more exciting, potentially plot-twisty centers of our story truffles*. So now that our stories are finally beginning to grow wings and take flight — or are currently crashing to the ground in distance streams of fire as it burns a hole the size of the Grand Canyon into your outline (like mine. ahem.) — I feel like now would be a great time to talk about all of the scenes we are most excited about writing this month! What sorts of fun things are you most excited to get to in your NaNoWriMo story? What are the characters you’re excited to meet? The settings you just can’t wait to explore? What are the plot twists that keep your mind whirring at night? (and if you’re not a chronological writer like me, what sorts of fun things/characters/scenes have you probably already written? [and also if you don’t want to share any spoilers, that is totally okay! just be super elusive. like a squirrel.])
*can you tell that the NaNo is beginning to get to me? because the NaNo is beginning to get to me.
P.S. ATTENTION TO ANYONE WHO SENT ME A FORM FOR THE DARE SQUAD — if you sent me your information in October, and it is NOT on the board, then that means it probably got lost somewhere in my very messy inbox and I am SO SO SO SO sorry. If you could please contact me through the Suggestion Desk and send in your information once again, I will get your name up on the board immediately. I’ve been having some issues with my inbox apparently, and I would feel absolutely awful if you sent in your information and I missed it. So yes. Just contact me and we’ll get it sorted out ASAP. *gives you cookies in apology*
P.P.S. I was going to delete those daily prompt things up there, but like. . .that would make the conversations down in the comments kind of bizarre for anyone looking back on this post. So I’m just gonna keep them there and let this post remain a trainwreck for all the rest of time. ahahahahahahahaha. #helpme
