How would that work?

For example the same way as in the input challenge, a star for each 25% coompleted. Or whatever works for you :)

I'm fine with that, but we don't have bot, so people will just have to report the results here. :)

In reality the Output Challenge is to record 100 hours of speech and 50,000 words (the size of one nanowrimo book), but 100 hours and 100 pages sounds better. :)


Ok, you convinced me, since it is related to the nanowrimo chriteria.

One suggestion for texts: try to translate a song, whatever song, into your target language. You will have to think about ways to convey really colloquial and contemporary thoughts and will probably get corrections about more natural ways to express this, as well.

Anyone else signing up for Camp NaNoWriMo this April? :)

Maybe we could put together our own HTLAL "cabin"!

Actually I did sign up, although I signed up for random people. Wouldn't you all have to be working on the same target language though?

I would think it would be best for a "cabin" to be monolingual, but there's not even a field for that on the site.
(I've asked them directly about it, but I don't expect an answer.)
