Lake Wrimo NaNo Newsletter

October 18, 2013
NaNoWriMo Lake County Region Newsletter

Happy NaNo Planning Wrimos! And Welcome to all those new to NaNo and Lake County this year.  There’s just two more weeks before the big moment when the clock ticks over to midnight and fingers start to fly over the keyboards. 

Before that happens we need to celebrate our dive into noveldom with a party! The NaNoWriMo Lake Writers Kick-Off will be held at the Eustis Denny’s (441) and begins at 6:30pm. Come in costume as your favorite literary character or character from your novel! (optional but most fun :)

Bring a friend or your family with you to this event so they can celebrate. And get a good look before you go into crazy writer mode and hide out in your writing space for the next 30days lol.

Be sure to RSVP even if you’re not sure about making it to the party. We need to know how much space to claim at Denny’s and how many writer kits to put together.  You can RSVP in two places:

Not to worry if you haven’t found the perfect plot or your character hasn’t found the right personality yet. There’s plenty of time yet to stock your snack drawer and program your coffee pot.

Hop on the forums and grab some ideas or post a dare for your fellow Lake Wrimos. You can also find Lake Wrimos on our Facebook group Lake Writers ( )
