Come join us tomorrow night, Friday November 4th for a night of writing, encouragement, and socializing with fellow NaNoers!
I’m hosting a word war for whoever wants to come (there are at least five people confirmed right now). I’ve also made a chatroom, and you can contact me by email with any questions.
I know people live in different time zones and have different schedules, so the chat will be open all day. Just head on in whenever you get a chance, and don’t be afraid to make friends, then challenge them to a word war to the death! (Or for bragging rights.)
Who: Anyone that doesn’t have anything better to do on a Friday night. Even if you’re not NaNoing this year, if you have a novel draft, blog post, or school essay that needs to be written, come join us!
What: A series of word wars (friendly competitions between writers where everyone involved agrees on a time limit and set of rules, then writes until the time’s up. Whoever wrote the most words in the allotted amount of time wins.)
When: Tomorrow, generally evening-time, until whenever the last person goes to bed.
Where: In this custom-made chatroom, completely secure (you can only access it through a link or direct URL). Here’s the chat. Come on in!
Why: Several reasons. 1) You can tell your parents you’re interacting socially! They’ll be so proud, 2) It’s fun, 3) I can’t be the only one who’s massively behind on my novel, already, 4) It’s cool to catch up with others, 5) It’s fun, 6) It’s the most effective way to not procrastinate on writing, whether it be a novel, blog post, or essay, and 7) It’s fun!
Did I mention it’s going to be fun?
COME! Bring your friends! Bring your enemies! Bring your frenemies!
(Edit: Oops, I didn’t realize that this was my 300th post until after I published it. W00t!)
This sounds awesome 😀 I’ll try to do it but since I’m going to Pandora this weekend (and planning a write-in for tomorrow, woo hoo!) I might not have internet service. I want to but we’ll see 😀
Gah, I wish I could do this! But unfortunately I’ll be spending the weekend at my father’s house where the internet is a myth. Which is a little sad since the internet is my primary residence.
