USA :: Colorado :: Boulder
Two and a half hours left. That's enough time to write a couple more scenes, right?
It's our last Tuesday in the Boulder Public Library, at least for NaNoWriMo 2012! Won't you come join us? Here until 6 PM. Please don't make me eat all the Newman's Os all by myself!
November's halfway gone and you're halfway done! Celebrate tonight at Barbed Wire Books from 6PM! Bring a yummy for the potluck and bring your novel to work on after dinner.
November 14 is Donation Day! If you've ever thought about giving a few bucks to help ensure there's a NaNoWriMo next year, today's a fantastic day to do it. Watch http://www.twitter.com/NaNoWriMo for giveaways to a random contributor each hour!
Write-ins today (Wednesday, Nov. 7): In Boulder, at Atlas Purveyors/downtown 12:30-3ish; in Longmont, at Panera/Ken Pratt 6-9PM! ... are we really a whole week into November already?
Or if you are in Longmont, some Wrimos will be getting together to write at Basil Flats Restaurant on Hover between 4 and 6 PM, which conveniently aligns with a fundraiser such that 25% of restaurant sales will go to support the Niwot High School Band. Why not join them?
Join us at the Boulder Public Library this afternoon? There MIGHT... and I can't swear to this now, but it's a possibility... be COOKIES.
The Kick-Off Party is tonight -- come join us at The Cup, 1521 Pearl Street, downtown Boulder, from 6 to 8 PM, for fun and games and prizes! (Games: Vortexae might bring her copy of Dixit. Because writers.)
We've had to relocate to the Denny's on Baseline (between 30th and 28th) due to unexpectedness at the IHOP (do not blame IHOP! We love the IHOP!). Some 30 of us have settled in and are typing our first words for NaNoWriMo 2012 even as we speak!
Tonight's the night we get this party started! Join us at the Boulder IHOP from 11 PM until 2 AM. The writing starts promptly at midnight!
Join the Longmont Free Writers at the Red Frog, in Longmont, on Friday the 26th at Noon!
Check out the calendar: it's been updated like woah. Kick-off, Inaugural Midnight Write-In, and several weekly write-ins are on the schedule, with more to come!
HALLOOOOOO BOULDER-AREA! Nano is imminent! Wanna do some brainstorming with your neighbors? Susabelle is hosting a couple pre-Nano write-ins in Longmont, and Vortexae will be ... somewhere in Boulder, sometime soon. Keep your eyes right here for more updates!

In the late afternoon shadow of the Rocky Mountain Flatirons, a mighty region of writers came together to lift their pens, and a rushing river of story flowed from the foothills down across the plains. And that's how we got Boulder Creek.
