The Zombies are Coming!

Ah, soon the leaves will begin to change and fall.  Children will begin picking out Halloween costumes. And then the zombies will come out.  I’m not referring to the trick-or-treating ones.  I’m talking about those crazy NaNoWriMo zombies who take over libraries and coffee shops and stare tirelessly at their computer screens, collecting word totals by the dozens…BRAINS…run-zombies

That being said, your ML’s have already been hard at work making sure that this year’s NaNo is going to be the best one ever for the Detroit region.  We can’t wait to share with you some of the amazing prize ideas we’ve come up with for write ins and parties, not to mention our little pick-me-up emails that will be going out each week. And can we say food?  I mean, it may just be me, but I can not (quite possibly will not) write without a snack in front of me.  But it’s one of the best parts about NaNo-ing in Detroit.  There are some fun places to eat and write out there!

So if you take a look at the site, there are a couple things of note this week…

First and foremost, submissions for the Pre-Writing Seminar are now closed.  We kindly thank everyone for their entries and we will be in contact with presenters soon.

Secondly, while locations have not been set in stone just yet (or dates for that matter), we are already gearing up for three major parties that we hold every year: the Kick Off Party, the Midway Madness Party, and the Thank God It’s Over Party.  Keep watch on the new page for information and we hope to see you at one (if not all) of the events!  They are a blast!  I promise you.  NaNo’s honor!

Lastly, not sure who is reporting all this info for you in the Detroit region?  Well, just mosey on by to the Municipal Liaisons page and meet this year’s ML’s!  We are a great mix of characters and promise to keep you zombie-ing along for higher word counts and all the brains your little undead soul could eat!

Now this little zombie is off to finish her homework (yay masters work), sleep the night away (never enough hours), and have another great day at work tomorrow (high schoolers, oi).

NaNo on my friends,

Adrianne AKA Spectacled Rockstar

Countdown to Kickoff: 59 Days!

Greeting NaNoWriMotown-ers!  Adrianne AKA SpectacledRockstar, your new co-ML here looking over the blog and letting you know this page is going to get a nice sprucing up by yours truly.  Have no fear though!  Everything that you love about NaNo-ing in the Detroit area will be available right here for all of your NaNo-ing needs.

Have I used the word “NaNo” enough yet?  Still with me?…


So what is this page going to have in the future?  November will be an active month on this site as the main page will be a blog with announcements and reminders of write ins, meet ups, and dare I say it, PARTIES!!  We will also be adding our weekly letters and encouragements to the blog as well, so if you ever find you need a little encouraging pick me up for your word count, look no further!  This week I will also be updating a biography page for the municipal liaisons (and one spunky helpful minion) so you know how to recognize us if the write ins are within a big crowd.  The site will also be sporting a spiffy FAQ page in case you think there is a question that is just too silly to ask.  And that much more!

So stay tuned NaNo friends and before you know it, November 1st will be here!
