Is it worth reopening my April wrimo forum?
Those of you who are already members of some of my other forums might already know what AprNoWriMo is. For those of you who don't, it's basically an April writing month. Last year, a fellow wrimoer and I opened the April Novel Writing Month forum, a place where some insane forum-hopping wrimo regulars could hang out during the 'off' months and just be...insane forum-hopping wrimo regulars. Basically, we hang out, have periodic writing challenges, and motivate each other.
This year, Camp NaNoWriMo falls in April, so that would make two events in that month. Camp has the statistics, the cabins, the large community, and the OLL name, whereas AprNoWriMo is more of a smaller scale forum-style thing, with more social interaction.
Given that two events might be too much, I actually had no intention of restarting it. However, I heard that some of us are still on the fence about doing Camp, and others like having a place to keep in touch with everyone else outside of the 250 character text box six-member Cabin limitation.
With that in mind, I just wanted to send a tentative feeler out there to see if there really was enough interest to be worth starting up AprNoWriMo again.
Awesome, or overkill? I would love to hear what you think!

Some alternatives to reactivating AprNoWriMo:
1) Just hang around the year-round sites (PlotMo, AofE, WriYe etc.) 2) Go to NaMayWriMo early (although I have no idea who's admin there, so reviving that site might not even be an option) 3) Add an 'April' section here, similar to how JanNoWriMo does WHRN in February 4) Set up a writing group thread on the NaNo site
