It's the last two days. The going may seem tough, but I know you can do it. Persistence even to the very end can pay off!

Today is also #GivingTuesday. If you haven't already done so, please consider supporting the YWP HERE. You will be helping many young writers realize their creative dreams!

As a reminder, we're also having a last minute write-in on Wednesday, November 30, 8:30pm at The Living Room in La Jolla. And don't forget to RSVP for the TGIO Party on December 3.

Onward!

We're heading into the last days of November now. And all that's left is the stark reality of a deadline and the word count. But we've still got until Sunday! This is no time to quit. No matter where you're at, keep going. However many words you do get, it is far more than what any of us had before the start of the month. It is totally possible to make a come-from-behind effort with these last days. You can do it!

We're having an Online Writing Marathon starting tonight at 8 pm. Check out this thread for more info.

There is another Halo Contest happening on Saturday (11/29). Post your writing progress in this thread and enter to win a halo on your profile!

And don't forget to RSVP for the TGIO Party on 12/7!

There's still half a month left and you might be behind like I am, but I know you can do it! Push forward and keep building your story, one word at a time. Whether it is just a sentence or several chapters, it's one step closer to 50k! Try to keep that momentum going by writing something every day.

As an incentive to increase that word count this weekend, we're having another Halo Contest (11/16). It's a win-win situation. Even if you don't win that halo, you would still have made excellent progress on your novel.

Your novel needs you. And the world needs your novel. Onward!

It's Double-Up Donation Day!

This is your chance double up everything: to double your word count, double your noveling time, and double your commitment by donating. For more info on this day and on our regional Halo Contest, be sure to check out this thread.

Heads up: Need to get out of the house and find some dedicated writing time to get your novel done? Then check out some of our write-ins such as our weekly Flash Mob Write-Ins! We have at least one write-in scheduled every day this month either hosted by the municipal liaisons or some very awesome volunteers. Take a look at our regional calendar below for our entire schedule!

If none of the scheduled events are convenient for you, we highly encourage you to set up your own write-ins! If you'd like others to join you on your noveling adventure, be sure to post the time and place in the Impromptu Write-In Thread.

Happy noveling and don't let the plot bunnies bite!

UPDATE: We've gotten our venues finalized!

If you're planning on coming to the Midnight Kick-off on October 31 at 11:30 PM, it will be at Studio Diner on 4701 Ruffin Road (map).

I also wanted to add that I'm towards the back, away from the front entrance, underneath the umbrella, by the ramp.

For anyone coming to tonight's write-in/get-together at the Living Room, I'm currently siting outside! Look for the pumpkin and apples to apples. If a table opens up inside, and we move inside, I'll post another update.

Due to weather, we'll be inside instead of outside. Just walk in, and we'll be at the long table on the right side. There's also a sign, and I'm wearing a Venn diagram shirt.
