3 days agoI'm sure I speak for the other MLs, Miroki and Jess, when I say that it was a pleasure to be your MLs for this year and tumble through this crazy, inspiring event with you! We hope you had a blast this year.
Enjoy your well-deserved break while you get ready to edit that masterpiece!
11 days agoHope your word-counts are soaring, Wrimos! We're throwing another NaNo night tomorrow which I've affectionately called the Mad-Dash to Midnight! We'll meet you at the Symposium (2-4 King st. N, Waterloo). From 9 pm to midnight, we'll be writing like crazy to finish our novels. From midnight to one, we'll celebrate! Come out, grab a bite, grab a drink and kick off the end of NaNo with us! Hope to see you there!
16 days agoThanks to everyone who came to support the Nano table over G33K weekend. And and also visiting Ness at her table!
21 days agoHope go see some of you at the write-in goin' on right now! I'm at a set of tables to the right of the entrance. Come enjoy a coffee (or tea, or water) and get that story written with the power of caffeine!
26 days agoHope everyone's ready for the write-in crawl! The event starts at Starbucks and gradually makes its way down King street! If you're joining us mid-crawl, you can check the KWC twitter account (@KWCNaNo) or send some NaNo mail to Jessica888 for an update!
See you soon, Adventurers,
about 1 month agoToday's the #NaNoThon! If you donate today, you're entered to win some awesome prizes, and HQ will be live streaming all day! The NaNoSprints account is a-glowing too. Festivities start at 9 am :)
And once you're done with with, our Overnighter begins at 9 pm! You won't want to miss it. It's better than Christmas.
I've also posted information about our Write-In Crawl that is happening next Friday, so make sure to check that out! It'll be loads of fun.
about 1 month agoThe Monday write-in and the overnighter are now posted in the forum! I'll be posting the Wednesday and Thursday write-ins tomorrow. Remember that you don't have to just count on the forum posts to know what's up - they're all listed in the calender (even if a couple locations are TBD).
Now keep writing! You should have hit 3333 words tonight (or last night, since it's 3:30am...)
about 1 month agoHappy NaNoWriMo everyone! WRITE WRITE WRITE!
1) The location of the November 2nd write in has been changed so please check out the thread for details.
2) I hope to see you all at the Kick-Off!
about 1 month agoNANOWRIMO STARTS TOMORROW! HOW EXCITED IS THIS REGION!?
about 1 month agoHope to see some of you at our planning event tonight in Little Bean Coffee Bar. Bring your endless creativity, your writing tools and of course, those fantastic social skills! Jess and I will be wearing our NaNo 2013 shirts so we'll be easy to spot!
about 1 month agoAnd our calender is up and running! Stay tuned for some updates on locations for some of the write-ins that have been posted, as well as the overnighter and some social events. Throughout the month, if you'd like to host an unofficial write-in and have it added to the calender, just let one of us know!
2 months agoWelcome back, wrimos! Introduce yourself and make yourself comfortable :) Keep checking back for updates, and in the meantime, reacquaint yourself with the site, fill out your novel info, and follow us on our brand spankin' new Twitter!
about 1 year agoOrwell has raised a whopping $65.73!!! Thank you all who donated to Wrimo! :D
about 1 year agoThank you to those who wrote me such awesome messages wishing me Happy ML Day! I am so grateful for all of your support, and I hope that you are enjoying this month! :D
about 1 year agoA very casual but very fun Halfway Social tonight! I know everyone is so busy and I really appreciated your efforts to make it out and all your company!
Sadly, due to everyone being so busy this year though, I think that poor Orwell may not make it past the finish line. That's ok though, as long as he is fed all your dirty change, he is as happy as can be! 8-)
The Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema begins tomorrow! A bunch of us will be going, so if you like to join us, post something in the WFAC thread. We will be congregating at 5:45pm tomorrow to see the opening show!
Keep writing! Woo!
about 1 year agoGood super early morning really late at night! (3am!) I just got back from the cast part of our show in Toronto. We closed our show with a sold out audience, which was amazing. It's been such a wonderful experience. But as you can tell, my writing has suffered. I am now over 3000 words behind! You shall definitely see me working hard at our first official Write-In at The Little Bean on Tuesday!
Promises that I will be more available on the forum from here on in *crosses fingers* Happy Writing Everyone! It's hard to get into the groove in the first week as we're adjusting Nano into our schedules. But we can do it!
about 1 year agoGood afternoon lovely writers!
I hope you're all geared up and ready to go soon! I know I'm not! Hahah...it's been really busy for me this October but I promise things are being planned and will fly!
Keep checking the calendar for events. They are not being confirmed in order, so keep checking back!
about 1 year agoOnly a few days since the site launch and already there is so much activity online! That's extremely exciting for a new ML such as myself. I admit that before taking on this position, I had rather been a hermit when it came to online involvement, so I never realized just how active and vibrant the community is!
I am in the process of putting together our major events in November. Please be a bit patient with me as I prepare our exciting month. I am notorious for managing and producing multiple major projects all at the same time, so I do have some split focus, but I promise that the wait will be worth it!
about 2 years agoIn case you missed the thread, Orwell raised over $200 in donations for Nano! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to Orwell this year! OLL, Nano, and the YWP thanks you! =D
about 2 years agoCongrats, Wrimos! It was another excellent year, and I'm pleased to report that we got Orwell across the finish line! You guys are made of so much awesome!
Even if you didn't win, remember that every word you wrote this month is a word you didn't have before and is one step closer to you completing that novel. Try to keep the spirit of writing alive into December and beyond and you will see your novelling dream come true.
Meet your MLs
We are Kitchener - Waterloo - Cambridge! Hear us roar! We are the tri-city of Nano Powers!
