Hi all, My name is Pixie, and I am about to take part in Nanowrimo for the 9th time! I am friends with Farida in real life,and she recommended this forum to our writing group. She said you guys give great critiques, and I trust her word! This year for Nano I'm going to write an alternative history novel where Nina Fawcett travels to the Amazon rainforest in search of her lost explorer husband Percy Fawcett. Wish me luck!
So pleased to have you, pixie! Your novel sounds lovely. I'm interested to learn how you're going about researching for such an exotic setting. My sister traveled to the Amazon a couple of years ago and showed me pictures of how two different colors of water flowed side-by-side and never mixed. One current was black, one was brown. Craziest thing!
Anyway, I hope the new forum can live up to expectation. We have a lot of work to put in to grow it to be like it was, so I hope you decide to stay around. Very exciting to know you're a part of Farida's writing group, too! (Thanks for recruiting new folks, Farida!)
Thanks for the welcome, and for the tips! Research wise I'm learning pretty heavily on a book called The Lost City of Z, by David Grann. Finding information on Percy Fawcett is easy, finding out about his wife and kids is harder! My novel will be a mixture of real people and actual historical facts, and fiction.

ScienceGirl: It's okay. In about three weeks my work is going to be crazy and I won't be able to keep up as much. We all contribute what we can

FoxxGlove: From my personal viewpoint, I'm trying to post in terms of enjoyment and readability rather than volume. I don't think it will be more than once a day though, if that.

Caulder Melhaire: That whole setup was designed so that folks could tell their own fun stories at their own pace

FoxxGlove: Great advice, Caulder. I love that we can go our own way on solo quests.

Alatariel: When you click on the forum you want, at the top is a "create thread" button

Alatariel: it can be hard to see sometimes. It's right above the "search" bar

pelwrath: Had an idea for Litterbug Junction but after some further research, I'm dropping it.
