Okay, peeps! This, here, is the official KICK-OFF PARTY information thread! FINALLY! 😉
When: October 31st at 10:00pm – November 1st at 2:00am, with writing beginning at the stroke of midnight (if you’d like to help set up, come on over around 9:30pm)
Where: Innovation Pavilion 9200 E Mineral Ave, Centennial, CO 80112 (for the average person, this is within walking distance of the light rail)
What to bring: This is a potluck, so bring some yummies to share. Let’s try not to make it all sugar-laden foods, though, k? 😉 We will need drinks, food, snacks, etc. Preferably things that aren’t too messy as the venue has an event on Sunday morning and they need the place in the same (or better) condition when we leave as it was when we arrived.
As this occurs on Halloween, feel free to come in costume. Costumes are NOT required, however—this is entirely up to you. We generally have a good mix of costumed and non-costumed people among us, so don’t feel pressured to go in either direction. Wear what is comfortable to you—and something you can write in at midnight!
As we will begin the writing at midnight (Redundancy Department of Redundancy, next left), you’ll want to be sure to bring your method of writing with you, be that pen/paper, computer, typewriter, or even a dictation device (though if you’re dictating, you may want to move off to another area so as to not disturb other writers). Many people also enjoy writing to music—feel free to bring earbuds/headphones and such, as well.
Make sure you sign up on this thread with what you’ll bring for the potluck, and also so we can get a head count. If you’re planning to bring a guest, let us know that, too (even if it’s a tentative… that way we have an approximation for how many people to expect, so we have enough power strips, if ya know what I mean).
Thank you all SO much for being patient as we ironed out these details. Now it’s set and we’re good to go!
Write on? RIGHT ON!
Niassa and Katharine Swan
