Dear Writers and Friends of the Muskoka Novel Marathon,
We invite you to join writers – from all over – on our new Forum! The MNM spirit can now live all year around.
Our shiny brand new PHPbb (aka bulletin-board format) Official MNM Forum allows you to select or create topics and easily find them. Forums seem to be uniquely suited to our writer’s needs as it provides for better preservation of conversations (because they won’t get scrolled away into
oblivion like the ones on Facebook); conversations tend to become deeper, more complex, more intimate and hence more interesting.
We’ve set up many topic to start, including:
- General MNM questions
- Fanfare! Have a book launch? Won a contest? Tell us!
- Writing Help — Plot, world-building, character development, setting, fight scenes, etc.
- Writing Genre – you name it, they’re all there and if they’re not, we’ll add.
- Expertise Clearing House — list what you know, find someone who knows what you need to learn for that particular scene or passage.
- Publishing — Our favourite topic.
- Break Room – Introductions, Rookie Corner, likely silliness
- Writers’ Block/Anxiety Support Group
- Peer Critique – how to do it, beta reader requests, critique groups
- And so much more!
New topics will be created on request (or just find the right place and go ahead and do it yourself!). This is a work in progress and probably always will be.
Go ahead and join by registering here: http://forum.muskokanovelmarathon.com/. Make sure to fill in your profile and post away!
Hope to see you there,
The MNM2020 Committee
