WOW - I just finished reading all the posts. Thanks we have write-ins everywhere, Carbondale, Mt, Vernon, Marion, Edwardsville, Granite City, O'Fallon, and Come-Write locations at Columbia (library) and Mt Vernon (library). Compared to prior years this is an explosion!

I will have to order more stickers next year so I can mail them out to the Co-ML(s) and Come-Write locations.

Now it's time to go work on my own NaNo Project.

Wow, WriMos are raring to go this year! There must be a lot of great ideas wanting to get out on paper. I can't wait to see what people post for titles, concepts, and plotlines. This is better than Christmas!

I am in the process of getting things organized so bear with me, The calendar will be updated tomorrow. Serious, I swear, cross-my-heart, pinky shake, etc.

I live in the Collinsville Area but will try to get out as much as possible. My motorcycle likes to be rode!

Welcome aboard, I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

Hello, writers! We're just over a week away from a month of literary abandonment. This year, we have two Municipal Liaisons: Thames from Carbondale and the returning Smitty2377 from Collinsville. With double the MLs, we hope to better conquer the vast Southern Illinois region. The calendar will soon be updated with Write-In dates and any other NaNo events; for now, the boards below are the best place to get information. Get ready to get writing!

Welcome Back Veteran's and Hello Newcomer's!!!! Please look at the calendar for Write-Ins in your Area. They give you a chance to mingle with other participants, share ideas, make new friends, do word sprints, and engage in word battles. Presently, We have Write-Ins scheduled in Collinsville, Edwardsville, Granite City, Glen Carbon, and Carbondale. If there is not one in your area and you would like one all you have to do is contact a place (Coffee Shop, Restaurant/Cafe, Library, Community Center, etc.) explain the purpose and ask for permission. I have not had anyone ever say no. Just leave the place cleaner than you found it and if they sell beverages and/or snacks, try to patronize the establishment as an act of goodwill.

Then post the place, time, and dates so I can add it to the calendar.

Okay gang, November will be here before you know it. We need to figure out where we are going to have our Launch, write-ins, and so forth.

As you know we have a large region! Anyone willing to host a write in is more than welcome. All it takes is to find a space and be the point of contact for it. I find in the Collinsville area Starbucks and Panera Bread are willing places.

Last year I tried to get over to the Carbondale area, but did not make it. I will try to come by this time. If not sooner. Email me if you would like for me to ride the bike by in August or September.

Start giving some thought to what you want to write this year and where you would like to do write-ins.
