I don’t know about you, but it seems the last several weeks have just flown by. It is Monday morning, Halloween is only two days away, and that means NaNo is coming.
You might be wondering what all is on the horizon. Well, if you haven’t checked the forums lately, you might not know that we have our Kickoff Party this Wednesday (yes, Halloween) night from 10pm to 2am. We begin writing at the stroke of midnight!
We also have an event TONIGHT! Yes, tonight! The Englewood Library is hosting a Plot Planning Party. All are welcome to attend. There will be games, refreshments, and giveaways—and best of all, you get to spend an evening (that does not involve writing!) with your fellow participants!
Did you know we also have several write-ins right off the bat this week?
Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser—or a hybrid plantser—this year is YOUR year. Don’t just work for it… OWN IT.
