DigiWriMo: Novel in a Day

The mission, which many chose to accept, on Saturday, November 3, 2012, was to write the world’s first massively-coauthored-in-a-day, digital novel.

Digital Writing Month: Inside a Novel-in-a-Day

Digital Writing Month: Inside a Novel-in-a-Day | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

I’m sure others will have a better insider’s look at Digital Writing Month‘s monumental collaborative project from yesterday entitled “Novel in a Day.” The goal was to use a Google Doc to create a novel of 50,000 words in 24 hours by as many people as possible, writing vignettes. In the end, it was just over 41,000 words, apparently. And about 55 writers were writing on the document yesterday throughout the day (the theme was using the mascot of the month — Digi the Duck — in vignettes.) A collaborative planning session in another Google Doc the night before narrowed down the focus of the novel, which I thought was a neat way to bring many voices into the mix.

A Place to Start: DigiWriMo #1 | The Arcades

Okay, so here we go. The first blog post of DigiWriMo. I’m feeling rusty – it’s been a while since I’ve blogged, tweeted, or even written regularly. I started a new job this fall (more on that to come) and with its 5-5 teaching load plus the steep learning curve of adapting to the procedures of a new school (new CMS, new course objectives, different types of students etc.), I’ve been slammed. Really slammed. I have over 100 English 1101 students so when they turn in their papers (5 total), I grade 100 papers at a time. I can barely keep my head above water. So something had to give and what gave was my own research and writing, my own engagement with the larger academic world, and my time spent on social media.

DigiWriMo… or a Whole Lot of Letter Stars Arranged into 50,000 Word Constellations | Sad Iron | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

The date of my last post­ing indi­cates one thing: the begin­ning of fall semes­ter. A lot has hap­pened in rela­tion to my work in dig­i­tal human­i­ties, numer­ous ini­tia­tives on cam­pus, a lit­tle thing called my tenure file, another lit­tle thing in the form of an impend­ing book release, and so on. I’m not sure what I’m going to use Dig­i­tal Writ­ing Month for, but I’ll just con­sider this post the start of it. So… where to begin?

What I Learned from #DigiWriMo’s Novel Experiment | Elizabeth Kate Switaj | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

Yesterday, I participated in the creation of a massively co-authored novel. The goal had been to reach 50,000 words; we reached 41,184. With this kind of event, however, it is the process and not the product that counts, and so I want to explore that process and what I learned it from it here.

A Novel in a Day?

A Novel in a Day? | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

On November 3, 2012, the bravest digital writing experiment of all time took place: over 60 writers attempted to write a 50,000-word novel, collaboratively, in one 24-hour period. Following the tremendous, if slightly surreal success of DigiWriMo’s midnight launch collaborative poem exercise, the army of DigiWriters pushed the limits of what’s possible in communal, digital writing. Are two heads (or five hundred) better than one? How many cooks is too many cooks in the kitchen? Was the adage about monkeys and typewriters finally proven right?

November -WriMo’s: Day 4 – My tools for the -Wrimo’s part 1

November -WriMo’s: Day 4 – My tools for the -Wrimo’s part 1 | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

While preparing for the -WriMo’s, I came across a few tools that I didn’t use at that time and decided to give them a try. As I found them useful and am now using them everyday, I thought I might as well share them, and add others that may seen obvious but have also become part of my -WriMo’s routine. I will thus start with three today and add another two tomorrow.

Was NaNoWriMo the first cMOOC?

The connection between NaNoWriMo and MOOCs had not occurred to me until the folks who created MOOCMOOC (a Massively Open Online Course about MOOCs) created DigiWriMo (Digital Writing Month) to align with NaNoWriMo. In DigiWriMo participants are challenged with creating 50,000 words of digital writing. Of course, digital writing is not defined so participants are free to structure this challenge as they wish. Several people ask for validation of their thoughts: "does code count?" for example. As with most cMOOCs, what counts is what you, as the learner, decide counts.

Digital Writing Month: I, Hyperlink (a poem) | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

I had this urge to write a poem about hyperlinks for Digital Writing Month. You know, hyperlinks are the most powerful feature of the Web, in my opinion, for the ways they can connect texts and ideas together, and we often take the hyperlink for granted.

DigiWriMo | #digiwrimo: Digital Writing Month | Scoop.it

So, apparently, there’s this challenge going around in the Intertubez about writing 50,000 digital words durning the month of November. Now, far be it from me to pass up a challenge, especially one where I get to spout off about pretty much anything I want to talk about for 30 days! I mean, I’ve got a lot to say, about a wide variety of topics. I am, in point of fact, a veritable cornucopia of verbiage regarding topics of varying significance to a broad cross-section of the English-speaking world.

It is the first of November. I’m participating in Nanowrimo and DigiWrimo, and one beautiful thing for today is that I have almost memorized the names for both. “I am doing that thing where you write a novel in a month” is how I’ve been referring to it for a few weeks when I tell people about it. But the official name is Nanowrimo! My project for DigiWrimo is to post one beautiful thing a day on this blog. Although this post contains several.
