JOIN THE GROUP ----> NaNoEmo
(avatar coming soon)Nagging NowIGottaReallyMakeThem Emotes Edit2: WOW! What a turn-out! We have a large gang participating this year. Remember, you can join at any time, so if you're an emoticonist, jump on in. I will be publishing a weekly special-journal during the event highlighting emotes made the previous week, as well as an event round-up news article at the end of the month, so keep an eye out!
As many of you know, November 1st is the start of NaNoWriMo. It's an event that challenges authors to write 50,000 words on a novel in the month of November. Last year in an attempt to give emoticonists something to do while all the Lit people did NaNoWriMo, I came up with NaNoEmo. The goal is similar--make 30 emotes in 30 days.
Ideally, one emote a day, but however you carve it up is fine. Also, if you miss a day (or two or three) don't sweat it. The goal is to create more emotes than you normally would. So, even if you manage 15, that's better than making none! Also, the emotes do not have to be fancy. Even a simple static chat-friendly or legend revamp. The idea is to push yourself to create. However, you can declare yourself a "winner" if you make all 30.
Let's see how close to the mark we can get!
If you are participating in NaNoEmo, please comment below and I'll add you to the list. It would be best if you created a separate folder for all of your entries. If you have one, please post that too and I'll add a link after your name.
*** Note that completion of an expression meme or other like project does count in this event, as long as you follow the rules of creating one emote a day. Emotes featuring your OCs are acceptable, too.
Also, if you come into this late, after the event has started, you MAY participate. Simply begin making emotes from that point on. You may or may not choose to go back and make entries for the previous days.
