Virtual Write In -- Starting now through Friday, post your challenges, word counts and successes in our "Virtual Write In" forum and FB posts. If you have already hit 50K, share some love by sending encouragement to people who are under 30K right now.

Our Topeka region as of Wednesday at noon has 2,010,779 words written and $1,035.00 donated and I would love to see both of those number go up up up as we get closer to November 30th. If you are buying yourself a winner shirt or other reward, adding even $5 or $10 to your order helps keep the "guts" of the nanowrimo website running and keep this event going for another year. Your novel will thank you!

DAY ONE. The day we go from people who plan to write novels this month to people who ARE WRITING novels. It's a big step from blank page to (hopefully) a few thousand words. Check in if you need help, and if you have extra time this week, stop to offer help/support/encouragement/praise in the forums or the facebook group to your fellow local writers.
