I’m participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month – http://www.NaNoWriMo.org ) this year. Anyone else? Still plenty of time to sign up!
In order to keep motivation flowing, is there interest in making a weekly date to sit in the general vicinity of each other and write? I was thinking Cafe Firefly looks like a great place to hang out, plus they can use all the business they can get it looks like. Know where they are? They’re on Main Street in Algonquin, across the street from what I think is now a health spa and also Cucina Bella or Bella Cucina. Whichever it is.
Last year Carolyn put together her wonderful collection of spider tales for NaNoWriMo. This year I’d like to participate for the first time in a while. I finished it once, maybe five years ago. Back then they didn’t offer to bind the work into an actual book. Now that I know they do that’s incentive to get something accomplished.
In any event, if you’d like to hang out once a week in November to support each other that would be great. We could set up two or three days/times and whoever can come can just show up. If there’s someone there, BONUS! If not, hey, kick back, order coffee and a treat and write away.
As far as my almost total lack of participation in the group, I’ve been given loads of new duties I can’t even keep up with. I’m only part-time but I’ve had heaps more added to my job. Budget cuts, as well as a new administration at the library, are the reasons I’m now doing things I never did before. Add life, reviewing and w hat-not and I’m more busy than I’ve ever been.
M – F: 6:00 – 9:00
Sat – Sun: 8:00 – 9:00
Just throwing times out there, how about:
Saturday evenings from 6:00 – 9:00
Sunday afternoons 1:00 – 4:00
Sunday evenings 6:00 – 9:00
Any weeknight 6:00 – 9:00
Come if you can, for any part of this time, and maybe some of us will meet up. Invite friends! Relatives! Strangers you pull off the street! I’m going to blog this and Tweet it via the library’s Twitter account.
Hope to see some of you there! If you want me to meet you at a specific time email me: email@example.com
