NaNoWriMo is the busiest during the month of November. What a lot of people don’t know is that there is a lot going on in October, as well.
Aside from creating your novel, making friends in the forums, and staring at the clock counting down the days, NaNo offers so much more.
I found this out through the ML in my home region. I’m part of three regions (because I don’t understand geography), but only my home region mentioned this.
There are two NaNo prep webinars coming up soon. Even though I noticed it was only posted in my home region (but it could have been posted in other regions as well) I believe the webinars are for anyone who have access to a computer and Internet. And if you’re reading this now, then… well, you’re included.
The fun thing about these webinars is that you can log in (registering for an account is free) so you can be part of the chatroom. Then you can ask questions to the authors in charge.
Here are the details: (please note that times may be different depending on what time zone you’re in)
