With just today and tomorrow to go, a quick reminder that to be a winner (and get the various winner's goodies) you have to validate your novel through the word counter on this site. Good luck and congrats to you who have already won!

Please, if you haven't done so, purple-ize yourself by using the word validator found in the drop down box at the top of the screen where you enter your word count... and then celebrate! :D

A reminder that Purple Mode is now activated! To go purple, simply copy & paste your complete novel text into the verification form. If you're over 50K by their wordcount app, you win!

A quick reminder-- when you've crossed your 50k, make sure to make it official by using the "I am ready to validate my novel" link in the word count widget at the top of the page. You can get extra bonus goodies from NaNoWriMo and sponsors as a congratulations!

Having a blast with the virtual write in day today on the IRC channel for our region. Come join us! Info in the post called "A Virtual Day of Writing With Reckless Abandon"

44! That's how many writers are officially counted in for this region so far this year. I know there are probably more who haven't officially started up but... that's great. A quick perusal of the stats shows that most of those present and accounted for are putting up good numbers too... so keep up the good writing, folks!

If you haven't noticed, there's now a little ticker on the page stating where our region is at for wordcount collectively and the total region members have donated toward keeping NaNo going. Congrats for 'winning' as a region on our first day!

Ready... set... almost time to go! No PV kickoff today, as I'll be busy with my munchkins Halloween... but I'll be writing a storm tomorrow!

The refresh of the website should be coming soon!

25 hours to go, fellow NaNoTobans! Good luck to all of you who, like me, are still shy of the wordcount, and congratulations to all of you who are going over the top and being validated as winners! Wish me luck as I push for my last 10K in the next 25 hours... -Alex aka metalfoot, your ML

Just a few days to go... and I'm excited to see all the "winner" bars starting to pop up on the forums... and here in our group, too! Good luck and all the best in your last few days of the frenzy we call NaNoWriMo!

Today we're 1/3 of the way into November... since we do have the holiday tomorrow, take a few minutes and see if you can get your word count over the weekend up to the 20K mark or better--this will put you in great shape to finish NaNo!
almost 4 years ago
Just a friendly reminder-- Saturday is the first writing marathon day of NaNo! Come join your fellow writers in Steinbach or Winkler if you're free... the times/locations are on the calendar below!
