Don't Forget to Validate Your Win

Congratulations to everyone who has reached their 50k (or more) goal already! You did great! Come celebrate your win with all of us.

Everyone else, keep going, there is still time left. You can do this!

The pretty purple bar is not automatic when you hit 50k, so don’t forget to validate in order to officially win and receive winner goodies.

And Join us tonight at Old Chicago for our Last Blast Get Your Words In Write In - 9 pm to Midnight. It's high energy and much excitement as we write away and encourage our fellow wrimos to win!

Today is Backup Your Novel Day!


Every year we hear stories of people who relied on just one method of saving their novel and then losing it all! It's a tragic, panic-filled moment and so easily avoidable!
Back up your novel today (and everyday), not just on one device, but multiple! Don't rely just on google drive, add a thumb drive backup, email yourself, put it in dropbox too. Backup, backup, backup!

Don't be a tragic statistic! Safeguard your words today!

Comparison is the Thief of Words
Don’t compare the words that you have put on the page with the images you have in your mind. Or to your favourite novels. Please, let this draft be bad. Let it be terrible and clunky and cringeworthy. Most importantly, let it exist.

Welcome to NaNoWriMo 2018


It’s a little less than two months until another edition of NaNoWriMo. Your ML is currently elbow deep in preparations and we’re slowly starting to count down until November 1st. Save all of your Thursday nights because we will have a NaNo Prep Workshop every Thursday of October and write ins every Thursday (except Thanksgiving) in November.

For now, come introduce yourself on our intro thread or come chat about what you are getting up to this month.
