Happy Pre-Thanksgiving to everyone!

Please note that the Plot-In Friday will be cancelled due to the likelihood of being overrun by Black Friday shoppers.

Remember remember to back up everything now that you're coming closer to validation day! Everyone is doing so super well and we couldn't be happier to hear of everyone's progress. Keep on writing! You're almost there!

Nanowrimo 2016 has started! Here are a few things to keep doing to build your community not just for the writing but later for revision and help selling it too.

Check the calendar and attend write-ins to connect with writers in your area. If you don't see a write-in that is close to you, start your own by deciding on a place, day, and time span. Then send a message to the MLs so we can blast it out on the calendar.

Go to our Facebook page using the link at right and join in the discussions and word count updates every day. These will help you stay motivated!

Join local writers organizations that are involved with Nanowrimo and build stay connected to your writing community!

Some great Houston and Texas at large organizations to consider:

Houston Writers Guild
Texas Authors Association
Bay Area Writers Guild
Woodlands Writers Guild
Writespace Houston
Area Chapters of the Romance Writers of America
and many more in our vibrant and artistic city!

The end of November is upon us, Wrimos! We've cried, we've laughed, we've caged our inner editors (kinda?) and defeated the Guilt Monkeys (not quite). It's almost time to celebrate! :-)

Our TGIO Party is scheduled for Saturday, December 3rd, at Pecore Hall. Details can be found in the TGIO Party thread below. Come join us to have fun and blow off steam. We'll talk about our novels, our NaNo experiences, and more!

Let's pull through this last week, Wrimos! We're almost to the Finish Line! :-)

NaNoWriMo 2011 has officially begun! Characters are being developed, plot lines are starting to expand, copious amounts of caffeine and candy are being consumed, delirium from lack of sleep is setting in, and most importantly, novels are being written!

Write-Ins have already started up across Houston, so be sure to check the Regional Calendar below to find one near you!

We had a GREAT time at the Kick-Off Party, and were excited to see a lot of new faces! Hopefully the newbies got some great ideas for their novel with "Pimp My Plot!" - or at least had a good laugh ;-)

Remember, NaNoWriMo officially starts at 12:00 am, November 1st. Many stay up on October 31st to get a head-start; many wait until they wake up from a sugar-induced coma :) Whatever you do, make sure you start writing on November 1st and keep writing!

Be sure to check the Regional Calendar below for local Write-Ins, and try to attend at least one or two during the month. Getting together with fellow writers will truly help boost your word count. For those of you who absolutely can't make the local Write-Ins, we will also host Virtual Write-Ins, so look for more info on those below.

Happy noveling, everyone! :)

Please don't forget to subscribe to the HouNaNo Twitter Feed and to join us on Facebook. Information for the virtual chat room and virtual Write-Ins will be posted in the forum below.

Keep those plot bunnies in check! :)
