NaNoWriMo Stand-Ups

with 3 comments

‘Tis nearly NaNoWriMo time-o again, folks. I’ve an idea and I’m putting together an outline, so I’m getting pretty excited.

I’ve blogged about my NaNo participation previously, here, here so you can read that if you don’t know what NaNoWriMo is…

But this post is for people who participate in NaNoWriMo Write-Ins.

One of the fun things about NaNoWriMo is community. NaNo writers can write in public, sometimes alone, sometimes in groups. The regional Municipal Liaisons arrange scheduled Write-Ins, and there is a special kind of ambiance when everyone is writing and the energy is paplable.

Anywhere any NaNo novelist works on a novel during the month of November can be considered a Write-In.    In the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge region it has become traditional for NaNo writers to announce on the forums when they know they will be writing at this library or that coffee shop. The more advance notice, the more chance other NaNovelists will be able to join them in impromptu write-ins.

To make it easier for writers to recognize a Write-In, a few years ago I cobbled together a couple of NaNoWriMo graphics to make 4″ x 6″ stand-ups, which can be folded and placed on a table during a Write-In.

If you can print a 4″ x 6″photo, you can make your own vanilla NaNoWriMo standup or Write-In standup from the graphics I’ve posted in Visual Laurel

Happy NaNoWriMo!
