On Writing: What is WSWM?

If you're reading this, you've probably seen my last three posts, each title prefixed with the initials WSWM, followed by a strange code.

WSWM stands for WeSeWriMo, which probably sounds very similar to something else you might have heard of: NaNoWriMo, and indeed, they're very similar. I've personally participated in NaNoWriMo twice, and yearly in NaPoWriMo.

To the non-writers in my audience, I suspect this all sounds like gobby-de-gook and nonsense, but I assure you, it is anything but. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month in November, and is the most advertised and participated in of the three mentioned celebrations (it also tends to produce more terrible writing than the other two). NaPoWriMo is National Poetry Writing Month in April, and while I yearly participate, I do so in an unofficial capacity. WeSeWriMo, which looks rather different from the other two, is Web Series Writing Month in August; of the three, it is the most imformal, spanning more than just written work (though that's what I focus on), and leaves the setting of goals to each individual artist.

This will be my first time trying to write a web serial, and you can find all of the entries here.

Since I have a tendency to come up with some many ideas for stories, I've decided not to try to limit myself, which is what the A, B, and so forth are in the title, at least until I decide on a title for each strain. The number following the letter is the episode, and I hope that's rather self-explanatory.

Wish me luck!
