Big, Fun, Scary Adventures
Big, Fun, Scary Adventures (formerly The Year of Doing Big, Fun, Scary Things Together until September 2019) is a NaNoWriMo forum for exploring new things in a new year and sharing those adventures with other Wrimos. The challenge itself is similar to making and adhering to a New Year's Resolution.
The forum was created after the NaNoWriMo 2006 season as part of The Year of Doing Big, Fun, Scary Things Together. In 2015, the post-November category containing this forum was renamed to I Wrote a Novel, Now What? and made year-round. As of September 2019, the Big, Fun, Scary Adventures forum is a subforum of Life After NaNo and is open all year long.
"What will you explore in [year]?" (2007-September 2013)
"What will you explore in [year]? What big, fun scary adventures are you taking on? Don't wait for New Years, start now!" (December 2013-2014)
"What will you explore in the coming year? What big, fun, scary adventures are you taking on? Don't wait for New Year's, start now! Let’s tackle those dragons together." (2015-present)
Popular Topics and Threads
The sticky post allows users to post big fun scary lists; however, individual threads are allowed, and some Wrimos do this instead. Threads for the more common goals will often be posted for people to come together around a single topic. Threads are often started for writing months in the off-season. Participants also usually make a monthly chat for hanging out and accountability on month-to-month goals.
