Megan will be late to the November 24 write-in (barring any emergencies that keep her away completely), and Dana's never made it to a post-Thanksgiving write-in being even further away than normal. That said, we hope you'll make it to ThunderBrew for the scheduled write-in for some Wombat camaraderie!
over 4 years ago
Happy Thanksgiving, Wombats! Whether you're taking the day off of writing to enjoy the warm embrace of family or using the holiday as an excuse to lock yourself away and write all day or something in between, we hope you have a wonderful day!
over 4 years ago
We're hunkered down at ThunderBrew for a day of writing madness at the Battle of Midway! So far, we have two regions represented. If you can make it for even a little bit, we'd love to see you here. Lots of prizes, including a full set of NaNoWriMo Trading Cards (thank you, Dan/Oxling!) and a 2012 NaNoWriMo poster! If you can't make it, you're here in spirit, oh Wombat!

It's day 1, Wombats! I hope that you are writing like the wind! If not, it's early. Don't stress! Come join us at one of the official or unofficial write-ins. The official ones have word wars guaranteed to up your word count mightily. You may even win a prize!
over 4 years ago
Welcome, Wombats! We're getting closer! The write-ins are on the calendar. If anyone wants to host an unofficial write-in at CMU like last year, just let us know. If anyone else wants to host an unofficial write-in at other locations in or near the region, please let us know that, too! We'll get them on the calendar!

We're almost there, Wombats! And whether you're close to 50K or far from it (like me!), you can do it!!! The best part? No matter what, you're already a winner for trying!
