Congratulations to one and all for another gem of a year! It was terrific to see our old friends, meet new ones, and welcome our newest little WriNoe, Anya, into the world (Happy BabyDay Darlene!!!). Stay tuned, this year may have a few more future scribes joining our ranks.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Kick-Off Party, the All-Night, All-Write, and the TGIO and Reading. It’s lovely to spend time reconnecting with everyone before the crazy days begin, and to end with listening to some of what you have been toiling away at all month. It is a true privilege that you share your work with us.
Big respect to those of you who persevered through life’s challenges, even if it didn’t get you to your goal. It doesn’t matter if you got ten words, or ten thousand, even one is more than you had yesterday.
As most of you know, we started this group because we didn’t want to stop writing together. We have focused on being a support group for protecting that time to write and we will continue that mission in 2020.
Tuesday night’s Write-In at Lynne’s House, and Sunday afternoon’s Write-in with Julia, will beginning again in January 2020. Look for those schedule to be posted by the end of December.
If you have any questions or requests, ask here or on the Facebook page. If you have any suggestions or feedback on your experience during the month of NaNoWriMo, feel free to contact me or Julia. We know the NaNoWriMo relaunch was a bit of an albatross around the neck this year, but they are working on the issues and by next November should have matters well in hand.
Special thanks to Paul for his design and print expertise. He plans and works on this project all year. He even had the concept for 2020 decided on about an hour after the 2019 Kick-off Party.
Lastly, since the snow and Thanksgiving kept so many of you away from our season ending shindig, please know we have your Winner and Perseverance certificates available. You can get one at any of the four monthly write-ins, or give me call/PM to make arrangements to meet up. You really want one, they are particularly lovely this year.
We wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
Lynne and Julia
