Hello NaNoWriMotown!

NaNoWriMo 2019 is just 4 days away! Are you as excited as we are? 

Speaking of excitement, the Kick-Off Party was a success! Our next event is the Late Night First Push Party on the night of November 1st. That's this Friday! You can find the Master Post of all our our big events and write-ins right here.

To add to the excitement, the teams have been revealed for the 2019 Team Championship! If you enjoyed the huge boost of productivity from last year's inaugural event, you can sign up for teams again! Please make sure to read the forum post, as some of the details have changed due to the new website. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out this post here and join in on the fun!

Finally, a few reminders on where to find all the important Detroit information:

• The regional landing page is here, which has links to all of our social media, the discord server, and more!

• The regional forum is here. Introduce yourself and tell us about your novel! Are you a Planner? Pantser? Plantser? It's a great conversation starter! 

Ready or not, here comes November!
