FVP is a big supporter of NaNoWriMo and nearly all of our Featured Authors have completed a novel or several during a frenetic and fun November. Snoqualmie Valley, where we’re based, has our own Region. You can join us for your Home Region on nanowrimo.org if you don’t have an active Region of your own. We have plenty of forums for interaction and many events if you’re near our area. Here’s this year’s superpowered calendar for the Snoqualmie Valley Region NaNoRhinos!
#nanowrimo Time! Yes, Camp NaNoWriMo is here and you can join! In case you don’t know, this motivating challenge is similar to its November big sister, National Novel Writing Month, but much more like a retreat than an onslaught.
Set your own goal – including editing hours or number of pages or word count – and write with the lively support of your cabin-mates. You can choose mates, create a private cabin, or go to camp and be assigned to a cabin of random wonderful writing folks. Pack your writing supplies and go to camp this April!
A couple of our FVP authors will be participating. You can watch our Facebook Page for updates on their progress and can respond there to let us know how you’re doing out in the woods.
We’re posting the calendar for our local Region’s Nanowrimo Events to make it easier for everyone to see it in a glance. You can find Snoqualmie Valley Region Here and are welcome to join us as your Home Region from afar if you want to interact on our forum as you write your own 50,000 words this month. And if you’re writing near Seattle, come up and see us in the Valley! Join us…
All of you writers out there, are you ready for NaNoWriMo? Most of our FVP featured authors wrote their published works during one of these annual word-weaving extravaganzas. If you don’t have a Region group in your area, we welcome you to join Snoqualmie Valley Region as your Home Region. We’ll be glad to cheer you on to the 50,000 word finish line! If you haven’t written your novel yet, what are you waiting for? Give it a try this November. We’re right here with you!
