Can you believe there are only 12 hours of NaNoWriMo 2015 left?! Where has the time gone?!
First and foremost, this is a reminder to validate. Even if you haven’t hit your 50k, it’s a good idea to run what you have through the validator, if for no other reason than to get in the habit for future years (and to see where the NaNo validator sits with your word count). So, go forth and VALIDATE!!!
So, why did we put “winners” in quotes? Well, that’s simple. That’s because you are ALL winners in our book. How’s that, you might ask? Well, you took on this crazy challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. You stepped up and signed up for the challenge, and that’s more than millions of others out there in the world. Even if you didn’t reach the 50k goal, you took the steps to try. You put yourself out there—and that takes guts, chutzpah, [insert your own awesome word choice here]! Even if you only managed 1,000 words this month, THAT is an accomplishment—because that’s 1,000 more words that you have because you tried.
Let us make this next part very clear: THERE ARE NO LOSERS WITH NANOWRIMO! Nope. Not at all. And that’s because of YOU. You took on the challenge, you gave it a try, and whatever you wrote is still more than you had in October. And you know what else? There’s always next year! That’s what is so great about NaNo—it happens every year (and there’s always camp in April and July!!). And hey—there are still 12 more hours!!! Don’t give up!!!
We also want to send out a very heartfelt thanks to all of you. We have an amazing region full of wonderful people—people who encourage and lift up, people who are cheerleaders for others that they don’t even know, people who go out even in bad weather to make it to write-ins and help set an amazing atmosphere for writing. We would not be the amazing region that we are today without YOU. And yes, we mean YOU!!
There are a few last minute write-ins today—check the calendar if you need to get to one today.
We’re sure many of you are wondering about the TGIO party; more info on this will be coming within the next day or two. It won’t be the production that the kick-off party was, but they’re still fun and a great way to decompress after a stressful month of writing. Check the forums for more information on this!!
Okay, quick run-down:
- Validate, validate, validate!!!
- You are ALL winners!
- There are still 12 hours left—get in as much writing today as you can! Write-ins are on the calendar!
- TGIO Party details coming soon
Write on? Right on!!
