It's all coming to a close shortly! You'll probably find some encouragement and help either in the ChatNaNo #Elsewhere channel or on the Facebook group! BicHokTam — Butt in chair, Hands on keyboard, Typing away madly!!! You can do it!

Many wrimos cross the finish line at the last minute in a massive burst of effort. If you want to do your massive bursts of effort before the end, then come join us at our write-ins along the way. Attending write-ins can help you stay ahead of par. But there's nothing wrong with pounding the caffeine and finishing a novel in 4 days and crossing the finish line, either. Keep your chin up! It's not over, no matter how far behind you get. Come catch up!

Reminder: there are many write-ins at libraries and other venues throughout the state. I'm still getting notices of write-ins almost daily. Please subscribe to the area calendar and check to see if there's a new write-in near you! :) Making it a positive experience means that everyone comes back next year. Thanks for letting us know about your plans in your area! Keep asking around, sending us your events, and have a great time writing!!

Almost all our events for November are in the calendar — now it's just adding in other Library or Wrimo-submitted events. Let us know if you're planning any write-ins in your area in the "Event Announcements" pinned topic below, and Happy Planing (if you plan)!!

Hi, NY WriMos!!!

Check out our Facebook group (link to the right), and make sure you grab a subscription to our calendar (link below — you can link it in your outlook or ical calendars too — I'm sure Google knows how).

We have some events I'm adding to the calendar, I'll be posting more events in the forums (for full descriptions) and more. We'll have an Online kick-off party and I'm hoping to do a local one in the Orange-Sullivan area and folks can join in (already collecting door prizes!! Just waiting on a location.).

So make sure to introduce yourself, read the announcements and get ready to prep for NaNo2018!

Hi, New York WriMos!

I'm Crisses, your ML for the Elsewhere region, and I hope you'll make yourselves at home here.

If this is your first NaNoWriMo, we'll all be chatting about what we're writing in the message area, planning events — online and in-person — and keeping each other motivated during the event.

Experienced WriMos, welcome back! The forums were wiped, we have a clean slate, feel free to start topics and find people local to you.

I'm happy to put your gatherings, write-ins, online events, etc. into our regional calendar so long as they follow the rules, and let's get started rockin' our prep before our 2018 NaNoWriMo Kick-Off!

Then we have friendly competitions either with ourselves to beat our own word counts, or to beat others word counts, so that we can get to our 50K finish lines!

Please follow the Codes of Conduct. https://nanowrimo.org/codes-of-conduct

If you would like to apply to be an ML next year (Help!! New York is BIG!), more details are on the Local Volunteers page. https://nanowrimo.org/local-volunteers

Looking forward to getting to know more New York Writers!
