How do I join the NaNoWriMo thing? I'm confused and need some help. Also, how do you do separate chapters on here? I came here from FictionPress so this format is all new to me...

"Chapters" are called "Issues" here on Penana, but the function is generally the same. To join NaNo here on Penana, just follow the links on the main page, it will help you out! I strongly suggest you go visit NaNoWriMo's official web page though, their site really details the whole contest. Best of luck, and welcome to Penana! I came from FP as well, and now use exclusively this community

@Civil Disobediance, if you go to your stream, there will be a thing that says NanoRimo and stuff like that, click it, at the top it'll say something along the lines of start NanoRimo book click that and every time you click the link in the stream after that it'll tell you how many words you have written how many days you have left and how many words a day you need to write to finesh. Hope that helped!

Thank you for your help, Andrew!
And thank you, Frances! She's actually ten months now, that picture was taken when she was a newborn. But I love the face she makes in the picture so much that I show it off as often as I can. She looks like a grouchy old troll XD

@Civil Disobediance, she's so precious!! Is she walking yet?

@Frances, Not walking yet but she is starting to stand herself up by grabbing a hold of tables and her play pen. She's a crawling fool, though! Gets into everything haha.

@Civil Disobediance, oh my goodness just you wait. My daughter didn't walk until she was 15 months but once she learned, there's been no stopping her. As my husband says, there are some days she is "full of no".

@Frances, I'm already dreading it X_x  she's such a curious baby already. Loves to see what's going on around her at all times. And loves to grab at things. If my boyfriend (her dad) is playing the Playstation or Xbox, she likes to snatch the controller from his hand.

@Civil Disobediance, oh my goodness!! The fight for the controller/remote is EPIC with us. It's incredible how obsessed they are with buttons at that age. I can't tell you how many times my daughter has programmed random shows on the DVR. I had like two hours worth of Spanish soap operas recorded one time. What is your little girl's name?

@Frances, Evelyn Jane <3 named after my great aunt Evelyn and my great grandma Sarah Jane. She's never recorded anything random, but our dogs have stepped on the remote a couple times and recorded random things lol. What is your daughter's name?
Frances

@Civil Disobediance, OH!! what a gorgeous, classic name!! I LOVE that!! do you call her that as a double name? Penelope Laura Lynn, Penelope for the queen in 'The Odyssey' and her middle names are her grandmothers first names. We call her Eppie though for short

@Frances, mostly just Evelyn, or "poopy" a nickname she is going to love when she's older lol. Evelyn Jane if she is being a pain in my keister. I almost named my daughter Penelope! I love that name! It's old fashioned but adorable. And those middle names are cute as hell.

@Civil Disobediance, thank you so much! haha i love it, Poopy. SO CUTE, eeeeek. I really wanted to name her Laura Lynn as a double name and my mother and mother-in-law clearly were in love with the idea but my husband didn't want such a long name.....but then he said he wanted the name Penelope....still trying to figure that one out ha

@Frances, when I hear the name Penelope, I always think of a quirky girl with Sailor Moon pigtails and polka dot skirts with long matching socks. I don't know why lol. It's so cute.
Me and my boyfriend bickered over names like crazy until I just said "Look, if it's a girl, I can pick the name. If it's a boy, you can pick the name." And it ended up being a girl so I won lol.

@Civil Disobediance, baha! I love that method! I'm so going to do that next time around! Not that next time around is any time soon...phew...
Have you decided to dive in on NaNoWriMo?

@Frances, I can't wait until next time but there's a lot of poo we have to get done before we can start trying for another one. Like trying to keep our house from falling apart lol.
I'm pondering it. I'm still a little confused on how to submit a story to it. Do I just submit it to the website or do I do it here?

I did. Made a profile. But I'm still a little lost...I'm like an old lady with the internet. I can't figure anything out without a lot of cussing lol.

@Civil Disobediance, I recommend searching the forums, not only do they give good advice, but it'll get you acquainted with the site
