It's hard to believe, but the end is in sight! With less than 5,000 words to go, NaNoWriMo 2017 will shortly be wrapping up. It's been fantastic taking this journey with all of you in the region. Whether we've seen you at Write-Ins or you've been active in the forums, whether you're a social writer or just someone looking for solace in the fact that other people do things just as crazy as you (like, say, writing 50k words in a month), we hope you've enjoyed this month. Good luck on finishing up, hopefully see you at our last Write-Ins tomorrow, and no matter what, see you on the other side!

Hello, hello to weekend number 3! We hope your word counts are ticking up steadily, and that you're keeping a full head of steam heading into the weekend, and then into Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving, as veterans may know, is often the biggest hurdle in the month. Family. Food. Conversation. More food. All good things, but also a ton of time away from writing. With that in mind, we hope you'll be able to get ahead of the curve this weekend, and write like maniacs! KDyer will be at the Manheim Township Public Library from 12:00 - 4:00 tomorrow to try and do just that. Feel free to join for the Write-In, or join in solidarity from afar. And no matter what, happy writing.

Hey out there in NaNo land! We're now into weekend #2 of 2017s NaNoWriMo, and with that comes the next Write-In at the Manheim Public Library. The Write-In is offically scheduled to take place from 12:00pm - 4:00pm. If you can't make it for the entire event, no worries. Come for as much or as little as you like. There is no designated space in the library for the event, so you may need to poke around a bit to find your fellow NaNos. General rule of thumb - look for a person or multiple persons with open computers, clacking away like mad.

Hope to see some of you there, and happy weekend!

Hey everyone! Welcome to our first weekend in NaNoWriMo, and with it, our first Write-In! The Saturday Write-In this week will be held at Manheim Township Public Library, and is currently scheduled to run from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. If you want to arrive early, or plan on arriving late, that isn't a problem at all! The only note for this particular Saturday's Write-In is that there likely will be present. KDyer will likely be in attendance for future Saturday Write-Ins, but unfortunately will be traveling for work this weekend.

If you can't make it to a Write-In but are looking for writing solidarity, don't fret! Take to the forums, and enjoy the company of your fellow NaNos from afar. The weekend is a great time to catch up if you're behind, get ahead if you know you're going to be busy, and all around to just dig in and enjoy the act of written creation.

Happy Friday (oh, it's a First Friday, too!), and have a great weekend!

We are officially less than 24 hours out! In this last stretch of time before we all go collectively crazy, here is a last minute checklist of things you might want to do:

- Create your novel, so that you can start pumping words into it without delay
- Take to the forums and start chatting with your fellow NaNos
- Check out the community calendar, so you know where events will be taking place and when
- If you don't see a Write-In location that works for you but you have another location and time in mind, shoot KDyer a message: we'll plug it into the community calendar

T minus 14 hours til the fun begins. Happy Halloween everyone, and here's to ringing in the best month of the year!

Can you believe we're only five days out (six days depending on how you count it)?! Whether you're still trying to figure out what you're going to write or you're planning on how best to attack your 50k word sprint, we hope you're excited to get back in the swing of writing. Once November hits, events will be peppered through the week and throughout the region, so if you're looking for a space to write with company, check out the calendar. Or, if you're not up on the in person companionship, take to the forums and introduce yourself! We're looking forward to writing with you.

Hey folks! A quick heads up - the 2017 calendar is now live! Primary events you'll see in the calendar are the Write-Ins (Tuesdays from 12:00 - 4:00 pm at Aaron's Books in Lititz, 5:00 - 10:00 pm // Saturdays from 12:00 - 4:00 pm at the Manheim Township Public Library), but we've added some easy milepost (wordpost?) trackers for you as well. Let us know if you want to see additional events added.

Hard to believe we're less than a month out from the best event of the year! See you soon, and we look forward to talking with you in the forums!

Welcome to NaNoWriMo 2017! Returning NaNos will notice that the region name has changed this year from Millersville to Lancaster (though we also encapsulate a wider region than just the city). Stay tuned for updates on write-ins, an upcoming calendar of events and prompts which will appear on this page, and be sure to get active in the forums as your creative juices get flowing. We're looking forward to writing with you!
