Can you hear that howl in the wind?
Do you see those dark creatures scurry?
Did you catch that shadow flicker in the corner?
*cue eerie music*
Come find a dark corner of the castle...
Settle into your dorm or private wing...
or gather in Vincent's Lounge!
Start to writing your gothic tales....
But beware the gothnowrimo ghosts!

mariarani: I'm glad there are a few shadows around. The cobwebs are rather thick this year. Now regarding gross, I'm not up for that. I like a few chills up my spine. I like a sense of the unknown lurking behind the blackout drapes. But that's about it. Sept 26, 2022 13:03:47 GMT -5
Daemora: I will be participating this year! I have an outline and everything! Sept 25, 2022 13:40:49 GMT -5
Lily Munster: There is always a big cauldron full of a yummy, steamy hot drink available... what it is I do not know... but it's good! Aug 29, 2022 23:05:17 GMT -5
Lily Munster: I'm still around! And every once in awhile a lost soul wanders in... and makes themselves at home. October can be fun around here, if we make it! Lots of bats and words and weird writers wandering around the drafty halls and to the common room and kitchen Aug 29, 2022 23:03:54 GMT -5
misproportioned: Hello! Is this still active? Jun 22, 2022 3:27:24 GMT -5
theawkwardllama: I have done much writing and little else. I find that I often fall into a brown study, and I have little appetite for food or society. I must confess that I have spent nearly all my time in my old room at the window. Oct 22, 2021 22:44:08 GMT -5
mariarani: The wonderful castle, draughty and EMPTY as ever .... ooh, the wind howls, the lightning crashes ... yep, I hear the howling .... okay, I know I shoulda started on the 1st, but.. Inspiration, I can feel it creeping up on me. I'd best go write ... Oct 4, 2021 5:27:27 GMT -5
mariarani: Yes, I can't wait for the first. Had heaps of fun last year. Sept 29, 2021 13:39:35 GMT -5
Lily Munster: The ghosts have arrived at castle gothno... readying the place for October 1st! Sept 27, 2021 19:21:52 GMT -5
mariarani: I will Daemora. I'm trying to keep up the impetus and keep the mood to write something dark and creepy. Oct 17, 2020 14:01:19 GMT -5
Daemora: I’ve always wanted to read that but I’ve never taken the time. Let us know what you think! Oct 17, 2020 9:05:08 GMT -5
mariarani: Someone told me to read THE CASTLE OF OTRANTO so I downloaded a copy from Gutenberg. Oct 16, 2020 13:10:14 GMT -5
Lily Munster: Ooooh I'm not alone here! Also did I hear some distant howling coming from the haunted forest somewhere... perhaps, the hedgemaze? Or was that...the Tavern? Gotta check it out *shivers* Oct 13, 2020 11:42:16 GMT -5
mariarani: All alone in a haunted, I'm not afraid at all. What's paranormal? It's only energy. Oct 12, 2020 15:42:44 GMT -5
mariarani: Ah, Daemora was around. It's nice to know I'm not lurking around all alone...... Oct 12, 2020 5:41:03 GMT -5
Daemora: The paranormal activity isn't strong, but it's here! Oct 11, 2020 17:06:43 GMT -5
mariarani: Hellooooooo. Is there anybody there? Or am I shouting into the void?????????????? Knock once for yes and twice for no........ Oct 11, 2020 13:47:58 GMT -5
Lily Munster: I'm baaaaack!!! Hello ghosts!! Hello fellow gothnowrimo castle dwellers! I see some of you lurking about! Sept 2, 2019 11:17:09 GMT -5
Daemora: I've missed my favorite dusty castle! Oct 17, 2018 20:28:30 GMT -5
Lily Munster: Welcome back to the castle all my darklings!!! Oct 3, 2018 8:52:20 GMT -5
