Hi Folks!

It's hard to believe, but it's really, truly, over. Whether your month was a blur or a slog, a marathon or a sprint, whether you were successful in hitting 50k or just successful in getting the skeleton of an idea together, congratulations! You've made it to the other side. We hope you've had a great NaNoWriMo, and that you've enjoyed this little pocket of the year to find community with other crazy people writers in the area.

So... now what?

November is a great month for finding connections, but the rest of the year can get lonely. It can be hard to find motivation to keep working when you don't have deadlines, goals, and an entire organization screaming "go! go! go!" at you as loudly as possible. Luckily, your writing life doesn't have to end here. There are a couple of ways at the very least to stay involved in writing throughout the year. If you're looking for community, try the following, or chime in on the forum (see the stickied thread) to make suggestions and find other folks looking for community support.

Tuesdays @ Panera on Fruitville Pike - Tuesday Write-Ins go all year round (except for weird windows when the group has to move to another night of the week), and anyone is welcome to join. If you think you might want to stop in on a regular basis, stop by at any time, usually from 5:00 pm onwards. We have a little mailing list for updates and shoutouts, and if you show up to a Tuesday night (or shoot KDyer or Roh a message) we can get you added to the list.

Thursdays @ Wegmans - Thursdays in the cafe at Wegmans go year round as well. If you're interested in getting more details, shoot a message over to JEHD in our community (or post a shoutout for more information in the forum here). This group tends to meet bi-weekly, as opposed to weekly.

Other thoughts? Trying to find other ways to stay involved? Chime in, and see what folks in the community can get going. Just because the best month of the year is over, doesn't mean the best activity we all love has to end. Looking forward to seeing you around, thanks once again for all of your excitement and enthusiasm for this great organization, and happy writing all the year round!

A quick apology for any confusion, folks! To anyone who attended the Write-In at the Manheim Public Library today, there was no ML present. I had intended to let folks know that I would not be in attendance, but thanks to a prolonged power outage last night, was unable to do so. Hope folks had good luck writing nevertheless! Be on the lookout for more regular reminders of locations and times throughout the coming weeks. As an FYI, while I will not be present at the Tuesday Write-In at Panera (traveling for work is the worst), Rohierim very likely will be. If not, then just look for the group of people with laptops!

Hi Folks!

It's nearly time! We're roughly three weeks out from kickoff time, and with that, you'll soon see some posts and calendars popping up in this space. Be on the lookout for the first draft of the community calendar, and for some introduction threads to discover a little more about your fellow Lancaster County writers. In the meantime, feel free to hop into the forums yourself, or to request locations and dates for write-ins.

Excited to see you all in person again if you're a returner, and if you're new, to welcoming you to the NaNoWriMo community!
