A note about write-ins…

Hello, fellow word warriors!

In honor of fostering and supporting spaces for creative people to get their creativity on, and because another National Novel-Writing Month is nearly upon us, I’ve decided to try hosting a regular weekly write-in at Mocha Monkey (downtown Waconia). Regular, as in: every Wednesday for the foreseeable future. As in: WWG Write-In Wednesday! (Don’t you love alliteration? I love alliteration.)

These meet-ups have been added to our Events page, but just a quick rundown on the general idea of a write-in:

  • Bring your WIPs (works-in-progress) to each session
  • Work independently in the company of other writers
  • Utilize each other for advice, feedback, moral support, etc.
  • Casual… come if/when you can, no RSVP required, and stay as long as you want to.

For me, sometimes getting out of the house and into a neutral location helps me minimize distraction, boost productivity, and (especially when other writers are present) keep myself accountable for my work.

National Novel Writing Month is November 1-30, and there will be a flurry of prep activities and materials thrown out into the writerverse over the next several weeks! If you have not participated in a NaNoWriMo before, get more information here. If you want to get going, get started here. Starting in November, the Wednesday write-ins will provide an opportunity for NaNo participants to have a space to focus and boost their word counts.

Next write-in (and first “official” WWG Write-In Wednesday) will be September 5th!

Happy writing,
