Europe :: England :: Chester
Right, people, torches and mosquito repellent at the ready, we're going to Camp! The forum will be open, there will be Write-Ins and best of all: A shiny new word count tracker!
At Camp you can set your own goal as well, or rebel and write script if you miss ScriptFrenzy, like Steve the Fan, your former ScriptFrenzy ML, who will be Camp leader in April.
Go to http://www.campnanowrimo.org/, sign in with your normal Nano user name and password, set up your info and choose your cabin, and then you can start plotting for another novelly adventure!
See you (t)here!
Hi again! Nice to see you back! Please feel free to keep using the regional forum, it will be up and open until the reboot in October. We will be starting the meet-ups and Write-Ins again in January in preparation for the More Novelling (MoNo) month in February, and then there is Camp Nano (formerly and in Chester still a sort of ScriptFrenzy) in April and then again in July, and then it's almost time for Nano again ... So there will be lots going on if you want to join us and get that book written once and for all.
I wish you a brilliant, creative and rewarding new year, let's make 2013 the year it happened!
That's it. Nanowrimo 2012 is officially over. 121 writers have written 2.9 million words, we are #61 in the word count scoreboard with an average of 24K per person, 38 writers are Nano winners and got their certificate to prove it. Congratulations, you have all done so well!
However there is one more event left on our calendar, the TGIO tonight. Writing implements optional this time, but please come and say hi and have a drink or a meal or some cake and a chat about novelly things like twisting plots and unpredictable characters and editing plans. We meet up from six, come as you are and take us as you find us! The bar staff will know who we are if you're not sure.
VALIDATION HAS NOW STARTED! See thread on how and not least when to do it. Good luck!
So this week we've got a normal evening Write-in on Wednesday, an all day one on Thursday, which is Half Way Day, and then the Day of Writing Dangerously on Saturday, which is also going on all day, and a normal all day Write-In on Sunday. Need to catch up? This is your chance, come along and get it written!
IT'S NOVEMBER! Go forth and be wordy! Good luck Wrimos and good luck, novels - may you become all that you can be.
November in the Chester region is as follows (click the Google calendar button on the list of events below to see the whole month at a glance):
* Write-Ins on Weds and Thurs evenings and all day Sunday
* Half Way Day Thursday 15th - possibly an all day Write-In
* WORDY WEEKEND, our speciality, will take place on Sat 24th and Sun 25th - all day Write-ins all weekend!
* Rollercoaster Day, Friday 30th - there will be peer pressure, cheering on and celebrations!
* TGIO (Thank God It's Over) Party on Saturday Dec 1st
I hope you can join us!
Hello, Wrimos old and new! Nice to see you, come on in and make yourself comfortable. Please introduce yourself, post on the regional forum and take the survey in the links list on the right hand side to let me know what days are good for meetings etc!
And we're back! The Nano site relaunched (so far apparently without major problems) this week and I have just returned from my Adventure, so Chester region is open once again! Feel free to start any new topic in our regional forum or browse and comment on the main boards while we wait for the main event. I will be getting to grips with my MLing this coming week, sort out the calendar etc, so watch this space!
Hello, Wrimos! I hope you are all having a lovely summer (" ") whether you're doing Camp or not. Just a quick message to say I will be away from next week until the beginning of October, but I *will* be back as ML this year and will be available for questions, suggestions, nerve removals, plot constructions, caffeine abuse cautions etc from early October. Also remember the boards will be WIPED on or possibly before Oct 1st, so save any and all posts and messages you want to keep!
Have a nice one, see you in October!
Linda M, ML
Camp Nanowrimo opens next Friday, are you in? Pack your bag, remember bug spray and writing implements, and head on over to http://www.campnanowrimo.org/ and log in with the same details you use on the main site. Then just name your opus, set cabin mates choices and start planning your story arc (or not) while you wait for the camp fire to be lit and the fun to begin!
Are you in? Tell us about it here, the forum is open all summer!
Now Nanowrimo is over, and ChesterWriMo as well, you might well be wondering how you are going to keep your word count up whilst being gently peer pressured into achieving your goal of writing a novel. But how about writing a script instead? Screen, stage, graphic novel - if it needs a formatted script, it's just the thing for ScriptFrenzy, which is conveniently situated in April. Hop on over to scriptfrenzy.org, where you can log in with the same details as for this site, find our brand new Chester region and say hi to or equally brand new ScriptFrenzy ML, Steve the Fan, who will be guiding you through a month of scriptwriting madness. See you there!
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Write-In this last week of February! Come join us and pull yourself kicking and screaming over the 10K, 20K, 30K mark! Remember, you can't edit a blank page, nor can you publish a half written first draft (never mind Dickens).
Welcome to Chester Writing Month! Have you got your goal? Your word count widget? Your story? A plot? Caffeine?
Right, then. Let's write!
Need stuff to put in your calendar? Here's some:
FEBRUARY: Chester Writing Month - our own Nano, a K a day;
APRIL: ScriptFrenzy, Nano for scriptwriters - 100 pages in a month;
JUNE: Camp Nanowrimo, a Nano light, where we'll write 50K again;
AUGUST: ... and again, another camp, another 50K.
Then take September and October off, or use them to edit, before
NOVEMBER: The original and best: Nanowrimo 2012!
Thank you to everyone who came to the TGIO party and made the evening so much fun! But it doesn't have to stop there - there are other wordy adventures to be had through the year, and we'll start the Write-ins again in January, so you don't have to write alone if you want to finish your NaNovel - or start a new one. We are on a roll now, don't stop writing!
Have a good Christmas and New Year, and I hope to see you again in January!
That's it. It's over. But we managed to write over 4 million words together, words that weren't there in October, and I think we should all give ourselves a round of applause and a nice treat!
After you have rested and caught up on your sleep and essential nutrients, re-established contact with friends and family and start getting used to reality again (boo!) you should come to the Thank God It's Over party in our usual haunt, The Forest House in Love Street, Chester - in the down stairs part - tomorrow, Dec 2nd, at six to celebrate and discuss our Nanowrimo novels, efforts and experiences. There'll be stickers and goodie bags!
Welcome to the brand new and shiny site for Nanowrimo 2011! Make yourself at home and use the forum to introduce yourself, post questions or comments and get to know everybody. We'd also love to see you at our Write-Ins, where you can meet your fellow Wrimos and still boost the all important word count - check the calendar for dates!
Contact me by Nanomail if you need help with anything, or on twitter @ChesterWrimo.
