about 1 year agoTuesday afternoon an awful incident occurred in the neighborhood where our first write-in is set to happen on Wednesday. We are proceeding with the write-in at Whole Foods TriBeCa as planned, because in uncertain times every person's story matters even more than ever. At the same time, we want our attendees to feel as safe at our write-ins as possible. If you feel in any way that you won't be comfortable attending the write-in at Whole Foods tomorrow, it is ok to sit this one out. We have many more write-ins planned over the next month. As an alternative, if you still want to have that write-in experience, MLs will be in the chatroom assisting with word sprints. You can find more information about the chatroom at this link: https://nanowrimo.org/forums/usa-new-york-new-york-city/threads/415987
We look forward to seeing you either tomorrow or at a future write-in.

about 3 years agoDON'T FORGET TO VALIDATE! Scroll over your "words so far" on the top of the page, and click "I am ready to validate my novel" when the drop-down appears.
Validate early! If you can help it, don't wait until midnight tonight to validate, when everyone else in our time zone will be slowing down the site.
Remember, you can still update your word count after your validate. So if you validate 50k and then write more, you can still update the word count number.
If you're handwriting, or typing across multiple devices, you can use lipsum.com (a word count generator) to help you get a block of text to paste into the validation box.
Best of luck in the final hours!
