We added some extra rooms to our Discord Chat so everyone can find space to use the rooms as they will. There is a Quiet room, where only Woolf Bot works, so there are not the interruptions of Bot info and the Raptors and all the commands and such that are available in the other rooms. If you need help with Discord, let us know!

Please remember to back up your work daily - in multiple places. Maybe even a hard copy. I recently lost about 10,000 words that I had to recreate the hard way. Always a reminder that not even the cloud can be relied on completely! So Save Early, Save Often! :)

Congratulations to our Regional Cabin for Camp NaNo in July! All 6 Campers reached their goals! WOO HOO! That sure feels good, doesn't it?! On top of that, planning and outreach to libraries and locations continues for NaNo. Nan and I are grateful for those who have stepped in to help make that happen in your local libraries! We add a new library to our regional events, and plan to keep working hard to ensure we have lots of events to help you reach your November goals! Want to get involved? Just let us know!
