MESSAGE FROM YOUR MLs: 11/5/17 ***

We added Wed night write-ins at Verde on Coleman Blvd from 6-8. Thanks to Jessie Banach for allowing us to host there and to Katherine Bourne for volunteering to be a Minion for us.

Tried to add in a few more virtual write-ins, those will probably be added weekly and some will be impromptu.

We are asking for donations for the Write the Night event on the 15th and Thank God Its Over (TGIO) party on Dec 2 (prepared food, items to raffle for prize drawings, cash for food and prizes). Items can be books about writing, your own published books, a freebie from your personal business or workplace, artwork if you are an artist, etc. We'll be raffling prizes at Write the Night on the hour, based on word counts throughout the night. (More details about this coming later this week). Contact an ML if you're interested in donating (me or Serenity Jones).

Everyone is doing great, even if you are behind. Plenty of time to catch up. Keep the momentum going. Our region is rocking it!

Thanks for all your support.

Happy Writing!

***ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM YOUR MLs - 8/24***

Hey y'all!

Hope and I met up this morning to start planning for the Charleston Region's 2017 NaNoWriMo time, and WOW. We went over a lot of stuff, and came away with some great things! Please take some time to read them below!

1. POLLS. There are two polls running currently! There is one suggesting changing the name of the group from Charleston WriMos to Lowcountry WriMos, and there is one to gauge interest in what type of fundraiser we'd like to do for our KickOff Party!

2. WRITE-INS. We sat and made a list of dates and times we're planning to hold write-ins, but we need location ideas! We have a few, but we could use more! We could especially use ideas for where we can host our KickOff Party and our Thank God It's Over (TGIO) Party, and one more special event we have in mind!

3. VIRTUAL WRITE-INS. You're shy. You have kids. You have a husband. You have a dragon that needs constant care so he doesn't eat the neighbor's cat. We get it. Fear not! For EVERY Write-In there will also be a Virtual Write-In taking place and moderated by your MLs!

4. FUNDRAISING. We have a lot of great ideas for fundraising for this fall, and getting a fund together for our region, as well as donating to NaNoWrioMo.org. Please be on the lookout for those!

5. CONTEST. We're going to be holding a contest for a new design for our region's logo (after we determine if the name will change!) and we want you to participate! The winner will have their logo up from October 2017 to October 2018 on the official NaNoWriMo Charleston region page, a note on our regional page, and have $10 donated to NaNoWriMo in their name.

6. ANNOUNCEMENTS. Please, please, please keep an eye out here on the Facebook page and in the forums for updates. We are trying to grow our region and the amount our region participates not just in November but year round, and it takes a village!

7. MINIONS. We could really use some helping hands! If you would like to become a region Minion, please contact one of us!
