Honestly, I've never even heard of GothNoWriMo before now, but then again I don't keep up to all the WriMo groups out there. I would like to participate, but seeing as it's already October and I have neither prepared nor given it a thought, (also because I have my dissertation to do and current projects to work on), I'm afraid my participation may have to wait until next year.
I've attempted GothNoWriMo once or twice but never stuck with it. I prefer doing NaNo with the events and such. Plus I've never felt I've had a "gothic" novel in me. But good luck to you and anyone else attempting!! mrgreen
