We will be having a write-in December 31 at Artista. We are trying to work out whether Artista will be open Christmas Eve Day, and if so, there, otherwise One World Cafe (6th and Main) if they're open. See you there and then!

I'm going to drop my car off in Pullman at one pm, so after that I should be able to join the Pub Crawl over there at whichever cafe they're at at that time.

Let me know if you'd like to join the LAST DAY PUB CRAWL and need to carpool or something. I will probably be going for the breakfast, come back to Moscow, and then go back later.
almost 2 years ago
We talked about a LAST DAY PUB CRAWL in Pullman. See the calendar for details. I am taking that day off, so I will likely be taking part, although I have an appointment at 10am that day.

CORRECTION: the Pullman Write-in is at DAILY GRIND at 6 tonight and at Thomas Hammer TOMORROW.
We have a write-in at One World Cafe Tomorrow.
almost 2 years ago
Nobody turned up to the Bucer's write-in last night, which is too bad since it was one of the few places in Moscow with electricity.

I think I will go to the Pullman Write-in at Thomas Hammer from 6pm tonight.
almost 2 years ago
Check out the PULLMAN WRITE-INs as they have several each week that fill in the gaps with our ones in case they fit your schedule better.

I noticed there's one tomorrow (Wednesday) at Daily Grind and I may turn up to that one.
almost 2 years ago
I removed the THANKSGIVING write-in at OWC from the Calendar since they're closed.

Had a good write-in yesterday afternoon/evening in Genesee. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is another one at Bucer's in Moscow.
almost 2 years ago
We had a really good write-in at OWC Thursday Night. Well-attended and a lot of fun. Tomorrow at 10am at Artista again.
almost 2 years ago
Bucer's write-in will be from SIX O'CLOCK for the rest of the month. The "Beer Club" got in ahead of us, and folks have not been able to make it until six anyway.

The One World Cafe one on Thursday is still slated for 5pm, and of course Artista is from 10am to 1pm (I need to bail by 1:30 this Saturday, by the way).
almost 2 years ago
I will have to leave a bit early on Tuesday as I have a thing at 7pm. It may get cancelled and I may be able to come back afterwards (though that might be after 9pm).
almost 2 years ago
Only one other person showed up at Bucer's tonight. We had the Grinder Room, which can accommodate at least eight people. Again, it's from 5 to 8 or 9
about 2 years ago
WHICH ROOM AT BUCER'S on TUESDAY?
If we have nine or more people, we can get the big "smoke room" otherwise we go with the "Grinder Room", or we can grab our own table and hope for the best.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW (post here or whatever) if you plan to make Tuesday so I can tell the own which room to reserve for us.

We still have the big rooms at both Artista and One World Cafe all month.
about 2 years ago
I have reserved the Artista back room from eight to noon on Sunday, and that will be the Moscow kick-off for those who don't want to go to Genesee. I will be doing both.
about 2 years ago
We have effectively settled on the 5-meeting-a-week schedule on the calendar with the times and places specified. I have reserved the rooms at the various cafes around Moscow (Bucer's has yet to get back to me, so we may have to just grab a random table).
Our first meeting will be out in Genesee at Sonya's place, so that will be our kick-off. If you need a ride, let me know!

Hey Nanoes! We're talking about doing at least one write-in during November down in Genessee -- thoughts?

Moscow ART WALK is Today. Does anybody know if it's going to be on Saturday as well? That is, that we might get bumped out of the back room this week?

ALSO: Just for instance, does anybody have a problem moving the meeting to later in the day? Like noon? Would anybody PREFER such a time?

There's going to be a POETRY READING at Farmer's Market from 9:30 to 10:30, so I may be a bit late. Please show up though!! To both!

Saturday meetings still going on at 10am at Cafe Artista in Moscow! We typically have at least 3-4 people, sometimes more!

If anybody is interested in being the co-ML for Moscow this November, let me know. I think I have it covered on my own, so it would mostly be a learning/training experience, bouncing ideas back and forth and learning the process in case you wind up as the main ML here (or elsewhere) later on. You could also inject your own flavor of Fearless Leader-ship into everyone's NaNoWriMo experience, if you want.

We had three of us at the last edit/write-in! Keep on coming! I am up to about 6 of a total of 20 chapters to get my 5th edition of SABINE ready to print.

More people are joining Critique Circle! If you are and want others in the group to look at your stuff, please post your ID on one of the threads below. Same for WattPad.com.

This goes without saying, but please keep your critiques kind, folks! If you can't say something nice (or helpful), you probably shouldn't be reading it in the first place, and that's fine, too.

I'd like to encourage everybody to put your stuff up on Critique Circle and let me (and everybody) know it's there and I'll try to critique it. I've got a lot of stuff up there now and have gotten some good feedback. If you can, create your CC name the same as your NaNo one, so it's easy to find you.

I'm busy Tuesday night, but might be available for an ad hoc write-in on Thursday (or Wednesday or Friday), so let me know. I will be gone Easter weekend, by the way.
over 2 years ago
See everybody tomorrow morning at Cafe Artista!
over 2 years ago
I'm busy tonight, so no ad hoc write-in for me, but I'll see everybody on Saturday. We had a good meeting last Saturday! On a personal note, I had some inspirations for plot fleshings-out for my 2013 manuscript (working title "Klaudia"). I'll scribble a bit below, and I need to get some freewriting done on these ideas ASAP!
over 2 years ago
We had another good write-in on Saturday. I could probably do a Thursday if anybody wants to -- let me know. I may end up at Bucer's on Tuesday as well (for other stuff but possibly writing later).
Write on!
over 2 years ago
I'll be down for the write-in soon, but I have to leave by 11:15ish. I will probably be back around 1:20 and be there all afternoon, though.
over 2 years ago
I'm here. It's 10:15am and so far nobody else has turned up for the Saturday morning revise-in. I'll hang out until about one, probably, and then I need to move on.

See y'all at the write-in tomorrow! I have to leave on time (at one), can't stay late this time.

Who's up for a write-in Tuesday or Thursday night?

There was a scheduling mix-up at Artista so another group has the room. It should be sorted out by next week. We're out front now.
over 2 years ago
We had a little write-in last night at Bucer's with three folks showing up, some good brainstorming and critiquing and such. See y'all tomorrow!
over 2 years ago
I could maybe do a write-in tonight. Let me know if you want to meet at Bucer's!

Contact me if you want to turn up for a write-in at Bucer's Tuesday or Thursday this week! It looks like I will be there in any case on Tuesday!

Tuesday and Thursday are probably going to happen at Bucer's next week from 5pm to 8pmish

Up to 102 pages retyping 5th draft of EXODUS manuscript. I was planning on 40p/week, but I've been making about 50p/day so far, but I'm on staycation. I uploaded one chapter to Critique Circle already.

Write-in again today! I need to bail by noon and I'll try to be there early.

I think I've recovered from whatever it was I had, and I'll see y'all on Saturday at Cafe Artista from 10am!
almost 3 years ago
I've been editing away, but I got sick yesterday so a Tuesday night write-in is probably out of the question this week. Hope to be better by Thursday, though. Ping me anyway!

I'm about halfway through hand-editing "Exodus" 145 pages with 170 to go then type it up and proofread and type it and maybe it will be ready for a second-edition beta-read on Lulu.com and kindle.
almost 3 years ago
We had a good Revising Club ad hoc meeting at Bucer's last night. Three of us turned up. I got some good editing done. I'm up to 43 whole pages hand-edited on my EXODUS manuscript -- about 200 or so more to go, and then on to trying to put it (back) into a book!
almost 3 years ago
I was at Bucer's last night. Mary was going to turn up but got tied up. I ended up hanging out with friends whom I ran into there.

Thursday is still a standing option for anybody who wants to meet up for revising! Any other days can probably work for me as well, too. Let me know if you want to meet up.

I got some good editing done on my EXODUS 5th draft this morning and will do more today. Beta reader feedback is trickling in, and I'm applying the advice.

I'm looking forward to our Revising Club tomorrow at Cafe Artistsa!!

TGIO Party and final Write-in at Shari's from 6pm. I will probably be there 4:30-5, there will be snacks, and unlike the cake, which we know is a lie, there will be pie! You may also order your own meal. Shari's is open past midnight for those who want to go it to the bitter end!

I'm upstairs at one world café. It's pretty packed and we don't have the big room tonight.

Once again, we're meeting at One World Cafe Tuesdays and Thursdays and I did manage to reserve the Big Room on Tuesdays. That's from about 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm. I will try to be there by five. Saturdays are from 10 to two at Cafe Artistaa in the back room.
almost 3 years ago
We'll have our kick-off party / first write-in Saturday morning from 10 (or earlier) at Cafe Artista at 3rd and Main in Moscow. Our final TGIO party will be at Shari's in Moscow starting from about six and going to Midnight (the cake is a lie, but there will be pie!). I will be taking off the week of Thanksgiving, so talk to me about activities during that week, including T-day.
almost 4 years ago
The TGIO / Final Write-in will be at Shari's from NOW. Thomas Hammer just closed. I will head out there shortly, plan to be there by 5pm at the latest.

Good write-in last night at Café Aritista and Bucer's, attended by Amy, Sonya, and YT. Today at Thomas Hammer in Moscow from 1pm, and then the big finale/TGIO at Shari's, in the back banquet room. The cake may be a lie, but THERE WILL BE PIE!! And appetizers put out as well.
almost 4 years ago
Write-in tomorrow at Café Artista from 3:30ish. but they're only open to 5pm, so I propose that at some point we move it to Bucer's across the street. I need to take off at seven. How does that sound?

THANKSGIVING WEEK!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS : FRIDAY NOV 29

First Wednesday Write-in Well-Attended!
We had Amy, Greg, Holly, Diane, & Jordan who attended Sunday's write-in, and additionally Paisley & Sonya who popped by on Sunday but could not attend. Sonya & Greg are new, so let's welcome them!!

I did NOT thoroughly poll attendants for whether SHARI'S would be a preferable venue for Wednesdays, so for now OWC it is! I do want to plan on SHARI'S for TGIO with Pullman joining us, however. Next write-in is Saturday! Who's going?
almost 4 years ago
I hear the Saturday Write-in at Moscow Thomas Hammer by the Pita Pit went well, 3-4 souls turning up. I was unfortunately out of town and missed it. I will plan on being at the next one. The idea has also been floated of joining hands with Pullman for their Saturday write-in (add Pullman region for times). Paisley and I should be able to provide rides if there is enough interest.

Sunday Write-in a hit!
We had Diane, Holly, Jordan, Sanae, Elizabeth, Amy, Greg, and me (I hope I didn't forget anybody!). The popcorn was a hit, we also had crudités which disappeared, and other goodies. We had several word races with the winner getting a free muffin each time. We had a few well-wishers who popped in.
Looking forward to OWC at 6 on Wednesday!! Write ON!!

I managed to pick up one AlphaSmart at WSU. The other three did not work. I replaced the battery and cleaned it up and it seems to work fine.
