Happy Thanksgiving, stay safe on the roads. Write many words, eat many foods, and never forget to back up your novel while you are at where ever you might be. Because you never know what happens during thanksgiving.

Hi, pandas!

We're a little behind in things for the region but never fear, we'll catch up! ML JFC James injured his wrist so the website will have to wait a little longer.
ML Klepto plans to do the dramatic reading in a couple days. She apologizes for the lateness of the Region Battle animation. Work has been keeping her busy, but she is getting some of it done in between assignments.

Don't forget to vote in the $200 poll for the next Region Reward, and check out the different write-ins that are already set for the month of March. :) It's never too late to add your own write-in to the calendar!

How's December going? Did you take the revision pledge? :)

If Winter Spa Solstice is to happen we need everyone interested to chime in ASAP. It is not a walk-in establishment, the staff does have to know ahead of time. The event is planned for 12/13 from 9am-5pm at "Quest - Women's Spa & Fitness Center."
8470 Holcomb Bridge Rd., Ste. 140, Alpharetta, GA 30022

Thanks to those who have already taken our Post-NaNoWriMo survey. It's still up! Let us know what we can do to make the region even better!

Discussions of the year-round write-ins have advanced. We're talking time and places now. Once everything is patted out the events will be placed on the calendar.

If you're looking to do a good deed, consider joining our Halo Avatar program. It's simple to do! Find a fellow panda who doesn't have a halo, then do a $10 donation in their name to give them one! Then let the lucky panda know!

We're only $105 away from our $3500 donations goal. Vote in the Region Reward poll before it's too late!

The Region War animation is on-hold until ML Klepto von Umbre finishes a pile of work, but it will happen. :D

CONGRATULATIONS!

You survived NaNoWriMo, no matter what your word count is! :D Come celebrate at the two TGIO parties we'll be having, as well as other events that will be on the calendar. :)

We're the year-round region so don't forget about us just because November is over. ^_^

Today is Staff Appreciation Day!

The NaNoWriMo staff work super hard to keep the site and this gigantic event running as smooth as possible! :D

You can go to the [Mechanics, Logistics, and Other Technical Stuff] forum, then both the All-Ages Coffeehouse sub-forum and the Site & Message Board Feedback & Suggestions sub-forum have threads where you can express your gratitude for them. :)

You can also tweet #nanostaffrules

Welcome to NaNolanta 2014! :D We're happy to have all of our pandas back together, and if you're new welcome to the fold!

We have all kinds of things happening, such as the Kick-Off parties and tons of write-ins. Check the calendar for more information. And if you need help navigating around, you may want to read the Newbie Letter, which is full to bursting with details on everything that is anything.

For our veterans, new this year is the NaNolanta Store to help support both NaNoWriMo and our region. :D
And we have official character mascots now. :) Check them out once their thread is posted.

Finally, WRITE! We're in a four-way region battle, we need you to write! XD

Over the course of the month we will send a region e-mail roughly once a week through NaNoMail and your personal e-mail to inform you of all the big events and other important things you may be interested in. Please set USA::Georgia::Atlanta as your home region to make sure you get these.

Hey, everybody! It's not long before November! :D

Don't forget to check the calendar for any pre-NaNo events you may want to hit.
Also, remember to mind your manners in the forums because we are rated E for Everyone. ^_^ That means keep things on a family-friendly level. We've haven't had any problems so far and it would be awesome to keep it that way!

The Facebook and Twitter are fully active if you haven't visited them in a while, and the chatroom is always busy. :D Flickr, Tumblr, and Instagram will start new posts soon.

Nanowrimo 2014 is just around the corners. As MLs we are as hyped as you probably are. As MLs we want to see as many of you at write-ins as possible and even if we don't, we want to see all the words especially since our region is home to one of the wordiest nanowrimoers in existence: Sushimustwrite. So I want to see the words flow and the pens fly/keyboard fly. (Just imagine you're Yagami Light from Death Note).
