FINAL IN-REAL-LIFE WRITE IN

The final IRL WI will occur today at Angelina's Teas on Stratford Road in Winston-Salem from Noon to 2:00. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend (work conflict) but you guys can gather without me.

Cheers!

WRITE IN REMINDER

We will have our third mid-day Write In today at Panera Bread on Cloverdale Ave. in Winston-Salem. From Noon to 2:30ish, we will gather (hopefully) in the back room to write and socialize. I hope to see you there!

KING LIBRARY WRITE IN... sorry, sometimes things go wrong.

For anyone who attended the WI at the King Public Library today, my apologies for not being there. Things blew up at work and I had to stay and take care of them. On top of that, April, the librarian who was going to be working with us, was out with a child and dentist issue. I hope y'all got some good writing and social time in regardless. And I'll plan another event with April to connect with our North WSR and Foothill Region peeps.

WRITE IN #3

Hey everyone! For the third write in, we're going evening hours—7:00 to 9:00—for some of you who can't make the mid-day WIs. I picked the Beer Growler because it's a great location with awesome, friendly people and great beer and sodas (and stellar Chinese takeout next door if you want dinner). They know we're coming and have set up a long table for us to use.

I hope to see some of you there!

WEEK TWO!!!

I hope everyone is doing well and that you survived the first week of NaNo2016 with intact sanity and word count, and no finger injuries. Week Two is upon us, and we have a great schedule of Write Ins...an evening event, our mid-day event in King, and (some advance warning) our weekend event in Bermuda Run. If you want to get together at other times, please do so by posting in the "Write In Ideas" thread.

I hope to see some of you on Tuesday night at the Beer Growler (family friendly)!

WRITE IN #2 is upon us!
We are off to a GREAT start, with 99 novelist registered and already 220k words written. Give yourselves a pat on the back or a high five or fist bump yourself (with sparkles, if you like). But whatever form of congratulatory self indulgence you indulge in, don't forget that we are gathering tomorrow at the Plentitudinous Ivorine Tower of Books-A-Plenty (aka Barnes & Noble) for our second Write In. This one is even at the sane hour of Noon (to 2:00 pm).
Come on down and write a spell!

AWESOME launch event for this year's NaNo! Our Rally / Crack of Naught attracted eight WriMos (incl. me), a spouse, and one child. We talked, we laughed, we got to know each other a little, and then, at midnight, we WROTE (and talked and laughed some more). We had two writing sprints and prizes (mardi gras beads) were awarded. The number to beat? Four-hundred and twenty-five words in ten minutes.
Oh, and stickers. Everyone who comes, first time, to a Write In gets a NaNo sticker, until they're gone. I have seventeen left...
