Details of swap:
...
For the un-initiated:
NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, which begins Nov. 1 and ends Nov. 30th.
It’s a month of insane writing fun, with the goal being to write a 50K word “novel” (it’s it’s roughest draft form… quantity, not quality. That comes later).
If you aren't a participant of NaNoWriMo: that's okay! If interested in joining many will encourage you. If you just want wordy inspirational stuff... we can do that too.

For those interested in participating:

This swap is for sharing inspiration. Word count tricks. Inner Editor lock-up ploys. Snacks and ideas to help the words flow late into the night. Sending beacons of hope to help the lost and forlorn make it through the endless nights of “I must write 3667 words today! And I watched Big Bang Theory reruns all night… aaaaaah! I’m never going to get this done!”

This will be a 3-point swap, equivalent to 1 medium or a couple small items. Though please do communicate with your partner if you wish to do more. I tend to get carried away with NaNoWriMo related stuff, but it’s going to be a laid back, no stress swap. There’s enough stress in November.

For some swap ideas: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422782.0#axzz2cCCaisj3

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Writing Magic – NaNoWriMo 2013
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

Will you be participating in NaNoWriMo 2013 (or have you participated in the past)?

Would you be comfortable potentially swapping with a Non-NaNo participant?

Are you hoping to do more than a 3 point swap?

Do you have any favorite words or themes?

What do you struggle most with when writing?

Would you like something wearable? (fingerless gloves, hat, t-shirt, necklace of awe-inspiring inspiration):

Do you have any allergies? Allergens in your home?

Describe your inner editor:

Favorite quotes about writing? (or just favorite quotes)

If you are comfortable sharing and would like it to be taken into consideration during the swap: what will your novel be about?

I know my questions aren’t the best so please, please communicate a lot with your partner 

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

I'll definitely be considering this - this would be my sixth year NaNoing, and I'm not sure whether I'll do it, or spend the month (and the encouragement) working on polishing past NaNos. Such a hard decision arrrrrggghhhhh.

nowheresound: You could always participate as a NaNo-Rebel Smiley There's actually a chat forum for those. Non-fiction writers, finishing previous work writers, etc. The "Don't tell us what to do" crowd lol.

Hehe, I am leaning heavily towards that, but I'm afraid I won't have the same drive with it, since there's no word-count-goal! At least I have a couple of months to think about it Smiley

Whichever moderator fixed my Swap title to include the sign-up dates: Thank you!

I was a swap organizer for a swap before and I swear I didn't have all this trouble lol. FreakieGeekie and Averia: this swap should show up on your profile pages as "in progress" but the link doesn't work. Not sure what I did wrong. It will be fixed.
