What is NaNo? It's short for NaNoWriMo, which is short for National Novel Writing Month. It's a month dedicated to helping people write and maybe create their first novel in one month. The website for the event is here.
The goal stated by the site is to basically create a novel, about 50,000 words, in one month. That's 1667 words per day. However, you can play this loosely by just working on a novel or any WIP to whatever length, or basically just anything writing. You can set your own goal if you want, but if you do sign up on the site, it will set the goal of 50,000 words per month for you. But just do whatever you feel is best for the project!
Here is where you can chat about general NaNo things, whatever it may be, separate from your own NaNo thread! Talk about something going on in your writing! Talk about others'! Cheer each other one! Any little thing about NaNo, this is the thread for it.

We were discussing NaNo and its comic-making equivalents on Discord. Coaster suggested that a comic NaNo would be 50 panels, since a picture is worth a thousand words and there's 50k words in a NaNo novel.
I've heard of a comic NaNo being one comic page a day for thirty days, where the page can be of any quality, but has to be done everyday. But I much prefer Coaster's conversion. It takes into account things like webcomics, which often don't have traditional pages, days where you're too busy to do much, days where you can work ahead, and allows you to create polished comics that you can share when you're done.
I'm probably not going to meet either measure, but it's interesting to me to discuss.
