LAST DAY OF NANOWRIMO PLANS / WAFFLEPALOOZA!

By popular vote we have chosen to shift the Sunday write-in time and location so that we may gather and feast on waffles together in the evening.

Sunday's official write-in will take place at the Burlington Power Centre Williams, with some members choosing to drift into alternative waffle heaven at Demetre's next door. We'll gather from 7-9pm. Hope to see you there!

RSVP in the Wafflepalooza thread.

We have a Regional Theme for the year: NaNoRhiNo! We're challenging ourselves to put a rhinoceros (or as many as we can fit) into our novels. This is something you can participate in whether you're coming to write-ins or with us online or just puttering along trying to get more words down. Details in the NaNoRhiNo forum thread.

According to a message we MLs received from our ML co-ordinator, the word count posting problem has been solved! There will be a mass mailing from NaNo HQ about it sometime soon. Thank you, everyone, for your patience!

I hope you've all gotten off to a great start so far! You may be experiencing slow-downs on the site - in posting, in updating word counts, etc. Based on past years, this is normal for day one and day two, especially in the late afternoon, when everyone from Europe to California is awake and posting. The site will likely be back to its normal zippy self by Monday. In the meantime, write-on, friends! ~ Gale

*chews fingernails* As I write this, NaNo is only 48.5 hours away! Are you ready? Have you checked out the write-in schedule and decided which ones you plan to attend? Have you stocked up on lots of convenient-to-cook meals and warned your family and friends that you will be WRITING in November? It's nearly time, friends! Eeeeeeeee! ~ Gale
