Holy Smokes it's almost time for Camp NaNo!

It's 50K day! Did you make it? Did The Skeeg tangle your plot, block your writing and foil your plans? Either way, the important part - you wrote! The more you write the easier it gets, so even though Nano2016 is almost at an end, keep it up and carry on! Never give up! Never surrender!

Win, loose or draw, you are also invited to join us at Hamburger Mikies on Saturday at 3pm for our TGIO - see the thread below for more information!

Howdy all, going through the numbers, it looks like we have 5 or so folks who have made it to 50K already! Congrats! For the rest of us, keep writing! Many of us seem to be in the 30ks blah zone, and it's just before the hustle and bustle of family, friends or extra difficult work times (so sorry folks in retail!), so take care of yourselves, and do try to write on! Never give up, never surrender!

Oh also, I goofed in putting the write in on the calendar on wed - OOPS! Nope, that's not actually supposed to be there, join us in chat instead if you like!

We are past the halfway point! Hopefully your word count is as well? Remember this weekend is the potluck write in at Harbor Unitarian, so bring your writing, a dish to pass and a solid hungry!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, if at all possible, it can't hurt to do a bit more than the 1,667 daily goal, so if you have a turkey coma, you don't get behind - also, as of today, you can begin validating your novels, should you be ready!

Wow! Has it been a week already? And look at those rising numbers too! You folks are rocking it this year - now is a good time to back up your novel OFF SITE as well if you have not yet (ie, email it to yourself, google drive, dropbox, put it on a usb stick around the neck of the neighbors dog or some such).

We also have had remarkable turn out at the write in's thus far! Keep it up folks, and keep the words flowing!

And NaNo2016 has cleared the launch pad! I see our numbers are starting to build momentum - great job all! Remember to check the calendar for write-ins if you have an open evening, and if nothing is happening, feel free to hop into chat anytime! Timmy the wordwar bot can time your writing endeavors for you even if its just you writing there, and you can start a new one by typing " !startwar (how long) (starts in how many minutes from now) " and hitting enter - example there; !startwar 15 5

Happy writing, don't let those plot bunnies trip you up!

Can Nano be less than a week away? Yikes!

If you have not, feel free to announce your novel, and introduce yourself in our forums below! Is everyone ready? Excited? Is your writing voice thick with Anticipa....

Write ins! We have them.. or will anyway. I will be adding them to the calendar as well as a forum post on them in the coming days once times are confirmed and all that fun stuff. If you would like to host one; being unavailable for the official ones or in one of our more outlying area, please feel free to post in that thread and we will get it in the calendar! Nano Nears

As many have noticed, Wrimoverse is well underway, with the first wave of cadets assigned to their ships crews and things starting to spin up! The folks behind the scenes are still working out the bugs, so it might be a touch wonkie at first. Ahem. Even though this is not an official NaNoWriMo event, it sounds like there might be a HQ message about it going out, so we might see some visitors from other regions.

In Official news, hop on over to the kick off thread to cast your vote for where to meet!

How is it the last day of Nano15 already? How did your novel go? Even if you did not make it to 50k, you rock! But now what? Well read on:

During the course of the coming year, watch the fb group as well as check back in here on occasion for things like author field trips and other possible events. Chat is always there, year round, so jump in. It might take longer than usual to find someone awake, so feel free to hang out.

And how does a Thank Goodness It's Over party sound, say next saturday? Post in the forums if that sounds like fun! Now the biggest thing; did you have fun? Let us know how we can have more fun next year!

Ok, who set the thermostat to "winter" outside?

But... there is a silver lining in the snow clouds! Is your word count lagging? Your characters giving you guff? Your plot in a tangle? It is kind of "the air hurts my face when I go outside" now, so you know what? Now is a great time to hide inside, bundle up with a hot cup and write like the wind! Take advantage of that nasty weather (unless you enjoy it) and use this as a motivation to really get after your novel and catch up or get ahead of the curve! You can do it! And hey, only your characters have to fall down on the ice this way. Write on good people, for soon many shall succumb to the turkey coma. Best to be ahead if you can - and if you have already hit 50K or more, don't forget to validate early - just in case the site decides to be weird right at the last minute.

It's halfway day... hopefully your word count's are getting close to 25k and your plot and story are flowing! This year we have more novelists than last (by two) and our word count is still pretty close to on track for average, so keep up the great writing folks! Lagging back a bit? Never fear, you can do it!! Never give up, never surrender - by Gra..wait. I shouldn't have Galaxy Quest on in the background writing these. Oops...

Nano is already a third over! Hopefully your word counts are already nearing the 15k mark as well. Write ins help, see the calendar below for upcoming ones, and if nothing else, you can hop into chat anytime and have word wars there with Timmy the wordbot timing them for you. See the chatnano thread for details if you have not yet logged into chat.

Write on folks, we are on course to pass last year's numbers soon!

Write In times and details have been added to the calendar - if you would like directions, click on the write in in question and it will expand with a map link! There will only be three Thursday write ins, as the final one would fall late on Thanksgiving.

And away we go! Nano15 is underway - our word counts are rising and plots are forming! Check the forums for write-in locations and feel free to post your successes or surprises. Hop into chat if you get a chance and have Timmy the word war bot time word wars/sprints for you, it really helps to up that word count.
