As I was driving back into town yesterday I couldn’t help but noticed how the trees were already beginning to turn into the deep reds and golds of fall, which reiterated to me that Fall is officially here and NaNo 2013 is at hand.
Here’s the lowdown of what we have planned so far…
– NaNo Prep Events –
With one month to go, Contemplative Cat and I wanted to help you guys have a fabulous NaNo year with some events to make sure you’re ready to hit the ground running Nov. 1st.

The NaNoWriMo site is set to update on October 1, 2013, including clearing out our old threads and adding a bunch of cool new things. Once everything is up and shiny we’ll drop you a regional message on some of those cool new things and brand spanking new 2013 threads.
Tell us more!
We would love to hear from you on what you would like out of your NaNo this year. Waiting with eager anticipation for the return of the Guilt Monkeys? Hoping for a mid-month write-a-thon? Looking for a write-in in another part of town? Let us know by taking a couple of minutes to fill out this survey with your hopes, dreams, and fears for this November.
Also, if you were with us last year and didn’t have a chance to fill out our end of year survey there’s still time! Go here to fill it out now.
We’re super excited for this year and hope that you are too!
& Annette (Contemplative Cat)
