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.

Location:

Coffee Connection
3838 S Centinela Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90066

Date: December 6, 2014 (Saturday)
Time: 2:30PM – 4:30PM
Details: Coffee Connection is a great Cafe in West Los Angeles in Culver City. They have a great variety of creative coffees and pastries. They even have sandwiches if you’re hungry.  We’ll be meeting in the Courtyard/Gallery area of the cafe. Parking is mostly street parking on Centinela.

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

If you want to share a page of your novel, you’re welcome to bring a one page excerpt!

You can make an RSVP by replying to this thread on LA Region Forum or at our Meet up page.  (RSVPs are not mandatory, but appreciated.)

Good luck getting to 50K, and I hope to see you at Coffee Connection!
