Oops, we did it again!
Can you believe we have another year of NaNoWriMo under our belts? This is the 6th for me, 7th for Sara, and 12th or so for Sara-with-an-h.
What keeps us coming back?
Each other. At least for me, more than the writing itself, the company I keep has become the greatest compelling force (at least until I finish something).
Seriously, you guys keep me going-kept me going this year. After my sister’s death I did not think I would be up for this. Once we got going though I couldn’t help but find my voice, my story and once again, my writing friends.
I’m grateful for your support and ears and words. The readings at the TGIO Party rocked ! So much talent, so many different stories, so diverse a community-though the commonality of quite a lot of us seeming to have no trouble killing the innocent-that’s slightly disturbing.
To the newbies who joined us this year, I hope we lived up to your expectations. Let us know if there is anything that you would have changed, or if you have suggestions for next year-you will be back-we welcome your input.
Thank you to all the regulars, those stalwarts who continue meeting all year at my house or Plum Island Coffee Roasters.
As usual, we’re taking a break in December but I’ll be posting the 2016 schedule in the coming weeks.
Enjoy whatever holiday you celebrate, but keep writing.
See you in the New Year!
