It's the final day! I hope everyone feels proud of what they accomplished this month. Many of you passed that 50k mark, congratulations! And many of you got reacquainted with writing or took it up for the first time, which is worth celebrating, so congratulations to you as well!

If you are interested in attending our January meetup to navigate the "what now?" months, please feel out the google form (link in The Final Week and Beyond thread) and if you are one of the four people who filled out the form before I required email addresses, please make sure that you have DM'd me your preferred email address. I will be leaving the form open until Monday, December 10.

After today I will check this regional forum and my NaNo inbox twice a week in December for any follow up comments and discussions.

It was such a joy to meet many of you this month and thank you for being a part of this community.

This event has just been added to our calendar- We have been challenged!

Who will be the wordiest wordsmiths? And which region will have to wear ugly holiday sweaters to their TGIO party? Our four evening challenge will decide!

The first event will be Sunday November 4 from 7-9 pm. The two hours will be split between two MLs- Casey from Syracuse from 7-8 and Meika from Fingerlakes from 8-9. And odd number of sprints will be run, and that number and the length of the sprint will be decided by the group during the event.
Whomever walks away with the most wins of the night is the first winner.
This challenge will be held on the Fingerlakes Discord channel:

I wasn't well-versed in the Young Writer's Program before becoming an ML, so if you're not familiar about the separate (And maybe more awesome?) platform for our youngest writers, considering checking it out: https://ywp.nanowrimo.org

Writers can still win the November challenge while pursuing a word count that is more manageable for younger students, and they can change that goal as they go, which is especially helpful for first time participants.

So if you have storytellers in your household or in your life who would love this novelizing adventure, but might not be old enough for the NaNoWriMo site, I hope you'll help them get signed up for YWP.

Welcome!
Our Kickoff Event will be on Saturday, November 3 from 10am to 3pm. By hosting the event on a Saturday instead of the 1st I hope that more people will be able to attend. The event is free and open to writers of all ages.

Over the coming weeks I hope to host a couple of introductory and prep events, and will be securing some spaces for write-ins, so keep your eye on the calendar below for updates!
