One week to go! If you're massively behind on words, like I am, no worries! It's totally possible to write 35,000 (or more!) words this week. We can do this! LET'S DO THIS.

And, also, hope you can make it to our TGIO party -- noon to 2 p.m. Dec. 1 at The Chocolate Café in Winchester.

Tomorrow is the NaNoWriMo Double Up Donation Day It's a chance to double your word count (if, like me, you're way behind) and thank NaNoWriMo for all its awesomeness by donating to future years of free novel writing.

Plus, you’ll receive $50 goodies for a $25 donation—or two posters at the $100 level—and be entered to win both hourly giveaways and a grand prize.

So if you were thinking of donating anyway, consider doing it Saturday for twice the benefits and twice the karma.

Hope to see you Tuesday on Kick-off Day! We have two area write-ins that day, and our All Day Online Write-When-You-Can Kick-off event! Details are posted below in our Google calendar. And be sure to check the forum threads downpage for fun discussions taking place throughout the day -- and all month!

Welcome to the New NaNo Year, everyone!

Whether this is your first NaNoWriMo or your fifth -- or your fifteenth! -- congrats on making the commitment to take your leap into one unforgettable month of writing madness.

There's no right or wrong way to win at NaNo -- other than achieving 50K words in 30 days, which is roughly 1,667 words a day. But just ask us repeat offenders and we'll tell you it's more than possible to cram in half a book in the final three days. So just have fun with it!

Basic things to know:
* Do all the pre-planning you like (outlining, characterization, choosing your writing music, etc.) but don't start writing until midnight on Nov. 1.
* You have until 11:59:59 on Nov. 30 to submit your final word count -- make sure you're signed up for the right time zone.
* Check out Google calendar of events (right below this post) for in-person write-ins taking place all November long.
* Ask all the questions you like in our forum threads, or by emailing your buddies! But please always be respectful to others.
* Have fun!
