Pre-Thanksgiving Check In

Pre-Thanksgiving Check In

Hello NaNoLansing,

It’s the day before Thanksgiving and Week 4. Maybe you’ll be traveling out of town or maybe you’ll be cooking your turkey, but there is still time to write. If you aren’t driving, take your laptop with you and write during the trip. If you are driving, perhaps use speech to text on your phone. Or write while the turkey is cooking. You can make time for more writing. Even a 15 minute word sprint on Chat NaNo can bring your word count up. You can do this! Even if you feel way behind, you still have a week! Amazing things can happen in a week’s time!

If you are past the 50K mark – Congratulations! Awesome job! Be sure that you validate your novel though because you don’t automatically win NaNoWriMo without verifying that you wrote those words. Don’t be a tragic forever green statistic (and make your ML’s heart break.) Be sure to validate before midnight on the 30th or sooner. If for no other reason, then to make your ML happy. 😉
You can still update your word count after you get your purple bar so don’t worry about that. For information on how to validate, click here. And please stop by and celebrate with us in the 2018 Winner’s Hall of Fame! Also, there is a special little treasure waiting for you the next time your ML sees you at an event.

Speaking of events – please mark your calendars for our TGIO party, which will be from 1:30 to 5:30 pm on Saturday December 1st at the Okemos Public Library!
We’ll have raffle prizes (Lovely NaNoLansing Tote Bag and an amazing Glow in the Dark 3D printed NaNoRhino compliments of JFolja), a white elephant gift exchange, potluck and loads of fun. Please rsvp here.

But we’re not done yet. To help you with your word count goals and give you some more time to hang out with your fellow wrimos and get more checks on your achievement cards for more raffle tickets toward those awesome TGIO prizes, we have these write ins planned for you.
