Squeeee! I hope to be as ready!

As far as time zones, Team NaPo's Time Keepers are fully aware of the current times in each zone.  Please rest easy, focus on writing, and allow the Team to do their jobs.

Ahavati said:Good morning from the east coast U.S.A. crew, returnees, and cadets! We will be launching both the official challenge and its sister prompt challenge at 6:00 AM, EST ( GMT - 5 ).  Australia and the like: you may go ahead and write today, then post to the comp tomorrow! After that you should be on track.

Once the challenges have been launched, please remember the following:

YOU MUST COPY/PASTE YOUR POEM TO THE CHALLENGE.  Please ignore the "Enter Competition" button at the bottom. These entries cannot be shared from your DU profile.  However, after you paste to the challenge, you can post to your DU profile.

Also. . .

1. The title of this thread will be changed from Registration to Discussion.  This means any questions, comments, blowing a gasket, screaming, questioning the Universe as to why you did this, begging for mercy on the rules, etc. will be posted here throughout the challenge.  

2. Absolutely no banter, off-topic comments, suggestions, blowing a gasket, screaming, questioning the Universe as to why you did this, begging for mercy on the rules, etc. are permitted in the challenges.  

Any such will be removed by a moderator.

3. Additionally, no graphics or images are allowed to accompany the poems in the challenges, with the exception of script graphics and daily roll call by Team NaPo.

The Team has a lot of responsibility and need to focus on submissions, not fish through pages of banter and/or memes/images/graphics.  

4. This is a HUGE NaPo, PLEASE DO NOT MESSAGE THE TEAM DIRECTLY.  They will be busy with their assigned duties as well as writing.  If you have an open question, come to this thread.  If it's private, then please message Johnny or me.  If we're not connected through DU, please email poeticmedics@gmail.com.

5. Believe in yourself, and the ability to complete NaPo.  Remember, this is NOT a competition; we are all equal.  This is a writing CHALLENGE, which allows you to step out of the box in regards to perfection and capabilities.

If you have not yet familiarized yourself with the rules, please do so BEFORE the challenge begins.

We wish you each the best of luck throughout this challenge and are here to fully support you.  YOU GOT THIS!



WE GOT THIS!

Hi, _shadoe_

There are many word counters out there that do count characters; however, I am unsure if there are any who omit specific characters such as punctuation.  The one I use does not.

Johnny and I will shop around today and see.  Or perhaps someone else already knows and will chime in before we locate one.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I can personally prove that wrong.

Just so y'all know i won't be using any counters, national, global or regional.
I'm just gonna write whole buncha words and if its the width of my four fingers vertically,  i would think it would suffice the requirement ;)
