I’ve used the term quite a lot the past couple of months – using it as a referral to my NaStyRoMo project and the people whom I met there. To recap – NaStyRoMo 2010 was a project proposed by a now good friend of mine, Antonio Rich, whom I met on Kim Harrison’s blog – The Drama Box. He challenged us to write a story of romance with a super natural twist in February. My blog story Bitten found its origin there as well as my friendship with the people whom I feature in a NaSty Pixie tale. The project, based loosely on a NaNoWriMo principle of dedicating a month of your life to writing, wasn’t as strict as NaNo (in which you need to write 50000 words in one month). It merely required that you write your story, finish it by the end of February and share it so that others can see what you accomplished.
So, we’ve once again decided to embark on another project – this time titled NaStySuMo or National Story of Superheroes Month. The idea is to write a story featuring any kind of superhero or person with superhero powers from the 1st of August 2010 to the 31st of August. And…
We want YOU.
We’ve decided that, instead of keeping it amongst ourselves, we want to try and recruit as many people as possible but there was a problem. How do we do that? Where do we host it? How do we tell enough people of it?
Simple – create a website.
It’s with great pride and excitement that I present you with the Official Nasty Writing Web.
With this, we hope to make NaStyNess a little bit more official, allowing others to come in and join us.
Here you can read the month’s stories, interact with other writers and have fun in our forum. Registration is simple –but not required if you do not want to interact. Our focus is on everybody from bloggers to poets, song writers and fan fiction authors. Here, we also offer a place for people to host their stories if they cannot do so on websites like blogs, FanFiction.net, FictionPress or places of your own design.
So, come and join us! You do not need to write a story to be allowed to participate in the forums. There should be people who provide feedback as well. 😉
Everybody is welcome, we might be NaSty, but we are also Nice…
LoL! Yes, we are NaSty but nice! I love that line!
And good job to you on helping to create this new site! Awesome job :0)
I hope we get a lot of joiners out of yours & Aheila’s posting on your blogs!
