Got Questions?

Answers to common questions about the challenge.

No, and no. This prep challenge is open to everyone. There is no fee to join, and you don’t need to be an active AutoCrit member.

No. This challenge is designed to guide you through the planning process in preparation for November 1st. Prizes will be awarded via a random draw. All you need to do to be eligible to win is register your spot!

Absolutely not. All our challenges are built to engage and inspire our community – that’s it. We make absolutely no claim to anything you create during the challenge.

Absolutely! There’s nothing wrong with “pantsing” your way through writing a novel, but we think you’ll still find plenty of helpful guidance to consider as we work our way through October. And hey… there’s always the 50/50 “plantsing” approach!

No. Our story prep challenge is not officially affiliated with the NaNoWriMo organization. November is, of course, the month of NaNo, which means prepping is a great idea if you plan to take it on… but you don’t need to have NaNoWriMo in mind to join us and plan your novel.
