With NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) approaching, there will be zillions of novelists plotting, creating characters, world-building, and eventually -- writing! They'll have lots of questions, and we have as good a shot at offering them the best answer as any of those, you know, competitive sites. Essentially, this is a great time to recruit new members!
What can you do to help?
As you go about your daily writing (or better yet, prepare for NaNoWriMo), whenever you have questions, no matter how silly, ask them here. You're not the only one having that question. Millions of other people will, too. Ask them even if you think you're going to be able to find the answer yourself... and if you do find the answer, go ahead and answer it yourself.
When answering questions, do everything you can to overkill it. Don't just answer with a hyperlink to some other discussion group somewhere. Write a detailed, step-by-step, ultra-clear explanation -- all the better if you find a way to tie in a diagram, illustrative snippet, or other examples. Help us have the best possible answer to the questions that novelists will face preparing for and during NaNoWriMo.
If a question comes in that is unclear, badly written, badly formatted, or in bad English, edit it into shape. We've always encouraged edits that improve spelling, grammar, and clarity. Make every question into a full sentence.
This is a great opportunity to build up a body of answers to common writing questions that will be super-popular in the coming weeks as the NaNoWriMo universe begins to come to life. Those questions will bring in lots of traffic from search engines, and if Writers.SE has great answers, we stand a chance of attracting some great new users who will add value for years to come.
