What is TGIO?

For those wondering what in the world does TGIO stand for, TGIO Party is The Thank Gosh It’s Over TGIO) Party. The TGIO party is a time honored NaNoWriMo tradition. The TGIO party is the perfect place for us to share our NaNoWriMo experiences, celebrate our successes and failures, and connect with our compatriot WriMos who’ve also survived the  month long suffering of writing our beloved novels.
