WOW! Our ML @kildeer and the Wrino supporting committee have planned a fabulous month this year, all geared toward fun and productivity.
Besides live Write Ins planned 6 days a week, all at different times to assure something works for all schedules, there are FOUR special events in addition that you should note. It’s on the NANO forums and event lists for our region, but here they are again for easy reference:
KICK OFF PARTY: October 30, 6-9 PM
This is where this year’s theme is revealed and we all meet, talk about our projects – including that you have no idea – and get energized for what’s ahead. Even if you don’t attend live write ins, it’s nice to see faces of who are behind names, and know who you will be doing this with – after all, one of those people might just inspire you or jump in to encourage you,or talk you off the ledge. And there are giveaways! Details at NANO home page >Community> Home Region>North Shore Nano Forums> Kickoff Party.
This is a welcoming group that is all encouragement and acceptance of anything. It’s awesome. Imagine there being no need to worry if you’re shy, stuck, think your writing is a pipe dream or you feel like crap. Instead, just think about how you can blossom and flourish in that environment!
FIRST DAY FRENZY: Monday, November 1 from 10:00 – 8:00 p.m.
It’s the Opening Day Write-In! All are invited to a Manic Monday of of National Novel Writing hosted by the Hamilton Wenham Library and our @slauderdale! Click here for more information Join any time or for the entire time!
THE FAMOUS ALL-NIGHT WRITE: Saturday, November 13, 6 pm- 6 am
This is a very special event. It’s done in 4 blocks with 4 different hosts to get us through an all night pajama party with fun markers along the way- like Midnight Madness where at the stroke of midnight all can read (or just enjoy listening to) a few pages of what each person is working on. It’s a blast. Another is the sunrise walk outside. This used to be at a lake near Lynne and Paul’s house but last year different people got on the zoom and walked outside to wherever they could go. It’s worth it to share this pretty amazing thing with everyone. Come to any or all parts of it. I’m hosting 6-10 pm, and WILL be in Pajamas. Find details on our NANO home page >Community> Home Region> North Shore NaNo Forums
THE TIGO PARTY: Saturday, December 4, 6-9 PM
Woot! This stands for Thank God It’s Over and we celebrate any and all words together with food, libations and festivities.
Live Zoom Write Ins
This year, we’ve scheduled live Zoom Write Ins for every singe day of the week. There’s something for everyone’s schedule – We have one hosted by Satin (@satinr) Monday from 7am-9am if you want to get words in before work, or once the kids are off or fed. Night Owls can start at 9:30-11:30 pm hosted by Sarah (@disquiet) and BOTH Saturday and Sunday are Marathons from 10 am to 4 pm – so you can catch up if you haven’t written all week, or choose your time to pop in and out as it suits you. And Friday midday @Kildeer just added 10am- 1pm hosted by Swampscott Library.
For now, here’s the skinny:
Mondays 7-9 AM
Tuesdays 7-9 pm
Wednesdays 9:30-11:30 pm
Thursdays 7-9 pm
Friday 10am -1 pm
Saturdays 10 am to 4 pm
Sundays 10 am to 4 pm
MEETING LIST ON NANO SITE:
Find the list of write ins by going on the NaNo Site, clicking on your home region and once there, clicking the little tab that says events on the middle column on that page.
