2014 TGIO Party!

CC_logoWe’re FIVE days until the end of November! So keep writing! I’m still a good… a lot of words away from the finish line… as you can see, but I’m already looking forward to our TGIO Party happening the weekend after November.

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 tim
e 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.

Here are the details for this year’s party.
