Quick note here:

I'm still working on the regional calendar, so check back closer to November to see if anything fits for you. Also, virtual meet-ups are definitely a possibility. If anyone wants to designate a time to virtually meet up and have some word sprints, then feel free to create a thread and coordinate for those. Last thing, as well as creating your own virtual meet ups, you guys can create your own write-in events. I'm still working on the calendar, but if there's a day that you'd like to do a write-in, create a thread and coordinate with others and make it happen! :)
I'm working solo this year as the ML now and so I'm going to do all I can to have several write-ins that work for people, but if I don't manage to have something that works for you, by all means set up something that works for you. Don't forget to declare your novel! More updates soon.

Hello NaNo's!

I would like to extend greetings to you on behalf of myself (Erica) and Kim: your municipal liaisons for this year's event! We are planning some exciting events for this year's NaNoWriMo and are looking forward to meeting and writing with you all. We are discussing the possible venues for this year's write-ins, times for these events, and the possibility of having local authors to visit write-ins to offer guidance and answer your questions. We're planning on kicking this all off with a kick off event!

To this end, we need your feedback. We are planning weekday evening write in's at Barnes and Noble and weekend write-ins at locations in downtown Chattanooga and Hixson. We would like to know which times work best for those wanting to attend write-ins this year?

Please send feedback to let us know which of the following time slots works best for you on weekends. Remember write-ins are drop in type events. You can stay for a little bit or the whole time.

10am to 2pm

12am to 4pm

2pm to 6pm

Also, would there be any interest in late-night write-ins such as a 7pm to 9pm event?

One more thing, does the evening of October 28th or the afternoon of November 3rd work better for you for a kick-off party?

Please send us your responses by October 19th! We will be in touch on details of the kick-off party and will have the Google calendar up with dates for our events before November!

Heading out to the final Barnes & Noble write in soon. It usually takes until @2:30 for the table to be up. So DO NOT panic if you get there before that. Just browse or grab a Starbucks. :) See ya'll soon!

Tomorrow is the last nice long write in at Barnes & Noble. Kelly usually gets the table in the front set up by 2:30. He has been a gracious host & is incredibly supportive of local writers. It is now the home stretch, keep on writing!!!

Your ML has a bit of a cold today, but there may be a wrimo or 2 at The Hot Chocolatier. Shoot me a message if anyone wants to have an Enzo's write in tomorrow. 9 days left! Set high goals & conquer that word count!

Remember: Write in Monday at Barnes & Noble. It's a LONG one...perfect for catching up in this last stretch. They are open until 10, so people can stay pretty late if they need to.

The hot chocolate is so divine here. The Hot Chocolatier is such a great spot to write! Every Thursday...and there's a delish cocoa nib infused Blue Smoke coffee here too. Write on, it's Thursday. :) Day 6....

Gosh. I love this handy notepad! The NaNo table is in the front corner next to the journals and glasses. We are a bit hidden, but here...

Hi all! There's slight possibility that I may be a few minutes late today, but go ahead and settle in. I am running behind right now! Yikes. Tell the B&N staff that you're with NaNoWriMo & there for the write-in. Kelly has set aside some tables near the front for us. You can also slip into Starbucks if you prefer. I'll bring the sugar skull & a NaNo sign. :)

There will some Wrimos at Stone Cup today (Sunday) @ 3pm. If you care to join them, head on over! Look for Julianna. Stone Cup is on Frazier Ave.

Seems some NaNo's are already at The Grocery Bar & it is super chilly today, so layers! I keep hearing rumors of snow, be careful! Heading out in a bit. Look for the brunette with a sugar skull stress ball, NaNo stickers & steampunk cat laptop. :)

I am a wee bit delirious & heard a rumor that it's snowing! What??? Look forward to seeing some wrimos tomorrow! :) Bundle up.

Hi Wrimos, Shoot me a message if you plan on coming on Saturday. That way, I can hold enough seats at the Grocery Bar. No worries if you're unsure. This is just so that I can get an estimate. There are lots of tables there, so we can split up too.

Tomorrow...follow the ribboned signs! Check the calendar for parking info.

Alright, so I have put up the first few events along with some important holiday reminders. ;) If anyone wants to swing by The Hot Chocolatier next Thursday to say hi, I'll be there. Parking is free after 4:30 or you can park on a side street. The new location is spacious and lovely. More events will be added soon!

Hey Chattanooga!
Are you ready to write? I'll post the calendar tomorrow & send out a NaNomail. Let me know if you have a favorite place to write around town. I must say that I have quite a few!
