2012 TGIO Party!

We’re past the mid-way point and right now we’re going for the final stretch towards the 50,000 goal. Before you know it, December 1 is here! And you know what that means?!

That’s right! It’s time for the Thank Gosh It’s over (TGIO) Party!  The Thank Gosh It’s Over (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 connect with our compatriot WriMos.

Here are the details for this year’s party.

Kay N Dave’s Cantina
9341 Culver Blvd
Culver City, CA 90232

Date: December 1, 2012
2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Details: Kay N Dave’s  is located in hip downtown Culver City. There is a parking lot adjacent to the restaurant, and if that is full, we can use the Trader Joes structure across the street.

Now that NaNoWriMo will be over, there is no excuse to not come out and party! There will be raffles and lots of fun to be had!

Metro Directions: Take the Metro Expo Line and get off at the Culver City Station – West Entrance. Head west on Exposition Blvd towards Venice Blvd. Turn left on Venice Blvd. Then turn left on Culver Blvd. (Walking distance from station about 0.3 miles)

Don’t forget to bring a 1 page excerpt of your novel to share with others!

Don’t forget to RSVP – RSVP is not necessary, but it helps us to have a rough headcount.

Also if you haven’t done it yet, you still have a chance enter our Halo Raffle by simply donating. Click here for Halo Raffle information and prizes.

Good luck and hope to see you there!

It’s Donation Day!

It’s November 14th. Not only does it mean we’re almost halfway through November, and we should be halfway through our novels, but today is Donation Day!

During Donation Day, NaNoWriMo has a goal of raising $50,000 by the end of today (6am – midnight PST). This $50,000 goes towards the $1.1 million fundraising goal, which will help keep NaNoWriMo possible for 300,000 aspiring writers around the world for another year.

Donate now and join the Donation Day fun! There will be hourly (and amazing grand) prizes announced throughout the day. So follow NaNoWriMo’s Twitter account check back on the Breaking News page and watch that fundraising meter grow, use the tag #whatnanomeanstome and share what NaNoWriMo means to you.

Please please consider donating to NaNoWriMo, because NaNoWriMo is brought to you by YOU! If it were not for the generous donations of participants, we would not have such wonderful opportunities of literary abandon each year.

Also Donation Day is also a great opportunity for you to earn your halo and qualify for NaNo Los Angeles Halo Raffle that will happen at the end of the month.

You should donate now if you haven’t already. Not only will your donation help NaNoWriMo, but it will give you a chance to win awesome prizes and be a part of something that changes lives.

We appreciate everyone’s support and thank you all for donating!

Happy Writing!
