New NaNoWriMo Write-Ins at the Waconia Mocha Monkey

(Now read that post title 5 times, fast!)

Last week, a small group of kindred word-makers met a few times upstairs at a local coffee shop on Olive Street. Few words were exchanged, because the collective effort was to get as many words as they could onto paper/Word docs/Google Docs/etc. And those meetings were just what they all needed! A change of scene… motivation and inspiration from being in the presence of other writers… whatever it was for each of them, it worked, and they decided they needed more!

As part of the festivities surrounding National Novel Writing Month, the WEST of the West Metro Write-Ins at Mocha Monkey will continue through the month of November!

Future dates/times are listed below:

  • Thursday, November 16, 7pm-9pm (holy smokes, that’s tomorrow!)
  • Friday, November 17, 7pm-10pm
  • Wednesday, November 22, 7pm-9pm
  • Wednesday, November 29, 7pm-9pm

The write-ins so far have been modest, drop-in events, with people joining when they can and staying as long as they want. We’ve been utilizing Mocha Monkey’s upstairs space; on the weekdays there are usually quite a few open tables. And to reiterate, all writers are welcome, even if you’re not working on an official NaNoWriMo project.

Stay tuned for more information on plans for a Finale Write-In on November 30th, the last day of NaNoWriMo (time and location TBD)!

See you tomorrow, fellow wordsmiths!
