HELLO LOVELY BOOKWYRMS!!!! This month is November, also known as ‘NaNoWriMo’, National Novel Writing Month. No idea which nation though, probably the United States of America or something (I mean I’d think I’d know if the nation was in fact the UK as I live here??) But anyway, the Group for Bookwyrms is its own nation. A Nerd Nation.
So nerds, we like dragons, yes? And we like stories, yes? So it is time to write a story!!!!! Together!!
So, go down to the comments of this post, and you’ll see I’ve written a short bit of story. Click ‘reply’ and add your own bit until we have a long thread of people adding more and more to the story.


Some ground rules;
:bulletred: no swearing
:bulletyellow: write in English if you can – most people in this group speak English as a first or second language.
:bulletgreen: no random sex or gore (we like dragons, dragons eat meat in violent and gory ways from time to time, but it’s not nice to surprise people with in-depth description of an animal’s insides if they were not prepared for it)(same goes for sex; some of us are kids who don’t want to see that sort of thing, or some of us just aren’t in the mood for a story about dragon booty)
:bulletblue: try not to change the canon; if someone names a character, that is their name. You may change things for the sake of plot – “you may know me as Steve the Awesome, but I was in fact Steve the Evil this entire time!” or “Steve was short for Stevearino”. But saying “the previous person called the evil god Steve but I DON’T LIKE THAT so I’m changing it to Tenebratorix” is not cool. That’s an example of course.
:bulletpurple: no ‘retconning’ – this means saying something didn’t happen – “Glenda the green dragon just didn’t eat Bob. It didn’t happen” – or sometimes it can mean going back and editing something you said to change it; this will disrupt the thread of the story for everyone else.
:bulletred: Editing spelling mistakes or grammar mistakes is fine, but changing the plot is not.
:bulletorange: If you’re upset that your serious story has been derailed by someone being silly, or your comedy story is suddenly serious and full of tragedy, or that your favourite character has been killed, you have to fix it by adding more story. The result is going to be strange, but hopefully well worth it!


At the end I’ll compile what we write into one long piece of writing (with some editing for grammar or spelling mistakes) and it shall be a glorious novel! It doesn’t matter how much you write in each comment; a word or a sentence is fine, an entire chapter will also be fine.
For the first comment I have not named any characters or introduced any dragons yet, so first person to reply to the comment gets to decide what the magic treasure is and all that jazz. Have fun!

You're welcome! I especially love the shading on the scales! Have you heard that there will be another Inheritance book called The Fork, the Witch and the Wyrm?

No I haven heard of the new Inheritance book, but I will keep it in mind. I might make more Inheritance dragon filled-pics.

You're welcome! Your books are lovely! Sadly I cannot add more; this group is focussed on the combination of dragons-and-books, so I can only add your dragon ones. I am a huge fan of your Tyrannosaurus notebook, your star notebook, and the one with the Helm of Awe on it!

Thank you for including my humble rendition of Smaug in your amazing dragon gallery!

Humble?!?! that piece had such a great feel to it!!! It reminds me of one of John Howe's Smaug sketches; i.pinimg.com/236x/7b/95/de/7b9…
But with a much more fairy tale feel, sort of echoeing Tolkien's own depiction of Smaug i.ytimg.com/vi/LRRL05Z8gu4/max…
And honestly the way you've composed it; tiny hobbit in the shadows, big dragon in the pale light... honestly it's a lovely drawing and not just a humble one!
