2017 Wrap Up – Great Job Everyone!!

2017 Wrap Up – Great Job Everyone!!

Congratulations on finishing another wonderful NaNoWriMo Season!

Whew! What a whopper that was! But we all pushed through, we wrote a massive amount of words, took down some baddies, and had a rousing good time!

I don’t know about you, but my TBR pile is like eight feet tall; time to get crackin’!

A few points before we close out the year!

Survey

Please help us make 2018 even better for our region by taking the time to complete this survey. Your information really will help in planning next year. Thank you!

NaNoLansing Through The Year

If you don’t want to see the fun end, I’ve got good news for you! We are hoping to once again do write-ins throughout the year!

If you would be interested in continuing your writing activities with our lovely group, then we especially recommend that you answer our Post-NaNo survey (link above), as there is a section where you indicate your preferred days of the week, etc.

Once we get some initial input, we will have information and discussions in this thread.

Communication Through Year

Regional Email

  • We will send out regional emails to people with the information on the monthly write ins. (If you haven’t signed up for these and want to stay in the loop, you can do it by going to: My NaNoWriMo -> Account Settings)

Regional Forum Posts

  • We will continue to post pertinent info here on the regional forums, so check back every now and again for that!

NaNoLansing Year-round Newsletter

  • We will also have a periodic newsletter for sending out other information, such as writing workshops, interesting blog posts or articles, and other news or resources. If you fill out the Post-NaNo Survey, there is a link at the end which will take you to a contact information form (we did it separate this year to ensure anonymity).

If you would prefer to skip the survey, but would still like to get the newsletter, then please either NaNomail either one of us (Contemplative Cat or YuOfOwari22), or you can fill out the contact form here.

Facebook and Twitter

  • We’ll be posting last minute reminders or updates about changes to Facebook and Twitter.
