We all know what NaNoWriMo is --- the National Novel Writing Month. We all know what Yaoi/Slash is --- male/male relationship that we all love and adore. This is where all yaoi/slash writers come together: to gripe, to moan, to seek help, to complain, and to wail in despair of the hardship of NaNoWriMo. 50,000 words isn't easy, and we need all of the support and help we can get. Besides, it's always more gratifying to know someone else is suffering the same just as you.
We welcome all yaoi/slash writers, fandom or original, amateur or veterans, and just about anybody who is writing and love yaoi. We DO NOT, however, want any intolerant and/or prejudiced people in our community. We are here to share our two main passion -- writing and yaoi/slash. So if you do not like what we are representing, we politely ask you with determination to leave. All niceties are done here, and if we still see people that cannot tolerate what we like, all flames are welcome.
Rules are archaic, but it must be said:
NO flaming (unless towards prejudiced people that comment and attack yaoi and us)
NO fighting about pairings or fandoms. Each to his/her own. You may like this person with another, I may like a complete different pairing. Are you wrong? Am I wrong? No. Then drop it.
YES! for constructive criticisms. Don't attack people with flaming swords, but help each other work through this November and every November coming.
YES! for linking to your NaNo work or website, for pimping your own work, for rant about NaNo and yell at the founder for creating this insane idea (no worries, we won't report to Chris.)
For NC-17 Works: Please remember to put NC-17 warning in case you want to post it here. Remember, one must be 18 or over to read NC-17 yaoi fics (and I'm serious.)
And quoting NaNoWriMo Community (nanowrimo in LJ), "At the end of November, if you've persevered, you will be a novelist, with your first completed novel! Who cares if it isn't 'The Great American Novel'? You'll have done it, which puts you whiskers to tail ahead of all those people who talk about how someday, they'll get it together and write something. When you hear somebody go on about the novel they're planning on writing someday, you can smile sweetly, and say, 'Oh really? Would you like to read mine? I completed my first novel in just thirty days!'"
