First Post

It was a dark and stormy night in Omaha.  Suddenly, a group formed!

Okay, seriously.  Across the span of November of 2008, a group of people got together to write and socialize in Omaha.  They were participating in an event called National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo.  The goal for the event was to write a 50,000 word novel in the 30 days of November.  Some succeeded, some failed, but their lives do go on after November has ended (their lives just aren't as meaningful, man!) 

This community is intended as a place for all the members of the Omaha Writers League to communicate, socialize, bounce ideas off each other, help each other out with research, post their latest efforts, point each other towards neat stuff on the Internet, and just generally bum around.  It must be remembered, of course, that there will be teens, here, so please, nothing that is not worksafe. 

Even if you're not officially a member of NaNoWriMo and the local chapter, the Omaha Writers League, feel free to join if you're a fiction writer in Omaha or the surrounding area, or if you just want to keep up with us.  You might want to join the NaNoWriMo forums, though, as there is plenty of discussion there regarding local events.

You can find more information on NaNoWriMo here, and sign up for an account.  Once you're signed up, you can sign up for the local region at your page.

Please, everyone, feel free to discuss anything you'd like, here, so long as it's "PG-13."  It's not a paid account, yet, as I'd like to see how well-used it is before I make it a paid site.  If we do that, we'd have more options open to us for posting, such as making voice-posts from our telephones, or posting from cell-phones. 

Sign up, use it, get together, write, talk, go crazy!

What if you want to use this to help you write short stories? I am not of the novel persuasion but do enjoy the creative realm of the thing.

This group is for fiction and poetry, so of course short stories are perfectly acceptable. Merf (ttmurphy) is more of a short story writer as well, so you're certainly not alone here.
