We are making another go at the TGIO get together. We'll be at Cheddar's in Jonesboro on Saturday, Dec. 15 for lunch. I'll probably try to get there by 11:15 to make sure we get a table so you should try to be there by 11:30 if possible. I'm going to open a thread for this below and request that if you are coming, you note it there so I know how many to plan for. I don't want to get a table for four and eight people suddenly show up!! Hope to see you there!!

In light of the sleet/rain mix and temperatures that are supposed to continue to hover around the freezing point, we are postponing the TGIO party scheduled for tonight (Dec. 8). We'll figure out another date and reschedule later.

Hey all! It's the final day, the last evening of NaNoWriMo. Whether you've hit your goal or not, you've done an amazing job getting to this point. Come out to the Craighead County Library Round Room and celebrate or commiserate with us, starting at 5pm and going until midnight or later. We'll have pizza, finger foods, and a variety of hot and cold drinks. It's been a fun month. We'll see you there.

Monday (26th) is our last regular write-in at 6pm at Barnes and Noble. Don't forget our big Push for 50K Party at the Round Room of the Craighead County Library in Jonesboro. We'll start around 5pm, but come when you can. I'll bring my Keurig and some medium roast coffee pods. If you want flavored coffee, bring your own pods. I'll also have cream and sugar and snacks. Those that want will order pizza. Feel free to pick something up on your way if you don't want pizza. Feel free to bring snacks if you want. We might be there pretty late, trying to get that 50K for the big win. I hope we see you there!! Good luck in this last week! DON'T FORGET to let us know you're coming in the Push for 50K thread below so we have enough stuff for everyone.

Hi all! The final days of NaNoWriMo are upon us. Some updates:

Our usual Saturday location (The Edge Coffee House) is closed for the holiday weekend, so instead we will be writing at Starbucks on Stadium/Red Wolf on Saturday the 24th, from 3pm until the last writer leaves.

No change to Monday the 26th. We'll be writing at Barnes & Noble from 6pm until close.

On Friday the 30th, we have our Push for 50K Party! See the corresponding forum post for more info and to RSVP.

Hope to see you there!

Don't forget our Saturday Write-in at The Edge Coffee House, starting at 3pm. Just come when you can. Monday's Write-in (12th) will be at Barnes and Noble, starting at 6pm. I hope you can come to one or both. Some of you may be behind (like me), but don't fret. Write-ins are good times to catch up. Hopefully I'll remember to bring stickers this time!!!

Hello everyone! Don't forget, tomorrow at The Edge Coffee House we're having our first official write-in of the season. It starts at 3pm, but feel free to come and go as you wish. Look for the lady in the blue NaNoWriMo t-shirt with the table tent and bags of goodies. We might not be able to sit together depending on how busy the shop is, but if you find me I'll give you treats. ;)
See you there!

Hey all! If you're awake and planning to write at midnight, check out the new Word Sprints thread. Keep an eye on that thread for future sprints and writing parties, as well. See you there, and happy writing!

The Kick-off Party was GREAT! I was so thrilled to meet everyone who came. Thank you for participating and making the party a success! I hope to meet more of you at the write-ins.
I have updated the calendar with write-in times and locations. You may have to click on the title to get all the information. I'm not sure how long we'll want to write and I had to put an end time, so I guessed or put the closing time. We may or may not stay the whole time. Write-ins are informal, so people can come and go as they need to. We basically write, bounce ideas off each other, and sometimes help solve plot problems. I hope to see you there!

Don't forget to announce your novel for NaNoWriMo 2018! Studies show 100% of writers who don't start writing never finish. ;)
