Hi friends! It's rainy and dreary outside so it's a perfect day for a write-in!

We are meeting today in the Community Room of the Oswego Public Library from 1-3. If you'd like to get there a little early for some more writing time I will be there to set up around 12.

It's also Double Up Donation Day! Your donations count as double today and you might win some really cool prizes from NaNoWriMo sponsors. So if you're able, consider donating to a great cause. It makes you feel good and helps give more motivation to finish that novel!

Hope to see you later!

Hey friends, last year at this time the worst possible thing happened-- my computer decided to go ka-put.

Please, please make sure you are backing up your novel. Google Drive or Drop-Box are great options-- so is emailing yourself a copy of your novel every couple of days (or every day).

Stop by, check out the forums, and chat with your fellow writers. You are now able to announce your new novel and if you need inspiration, there's a tab for that!

Today is when I'm going to start my planning for my novel (late, I know), but if anyone wants to have a virtual planning session or session at the library one evening this week, let me know!

BACK UP YOUR WORK!

We have all run into the dreaded computer crash, or a wonky Evil Pixie stealing our writing.

Make sure you have a alternative way to save your story. I suggest that you use a Flash Drive. November is an excellent time to pick up these little life-savers for under $5.
