Night of Writing Dangerously, San Francisco 20 nov 2011 #NaNoWriMo

For the fifth consecutive year in November, I participated in NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. A project organized by the Office of Letters and Light, a nonprofit organization. The project inspires children, youth and adults to write around the world. This year is the first year I went in the goal of writing 50,000 words during November, which I’m proud of.

A contributing factor was that I attended the Night of Writing Dangerously in San Francisco in November. There I met more than 200 other writers, we wrote together and celebrate that we, Write-a-thon attendee, jointly donated money to the classroom-based Young Writers Program so it will be developed.
You can read about the meeting on the following blog.

National Novel Writing Month’s Night of Writing Dangerously

NaNoWriMo is a personal challenge of creative expression that requires discipline. But you’re not alone. You share your trials and tribulations with others around the world in an daily ongoing dialogue. The dialogue is either done quietly, knowing the other’s out there doing the same as you do. Or active on the Internet and at meetings. It’s great.

Now I sit with a script to be processed, a task I like.  I am already looking forward to November 2012.

  1. Hello, Hello Birgitta! My name is Cylithria Dubois ”eensybeensyspider” on the nanowrimo.org website. We met at The Night of Writing Dangerously 2011. (I was the one who met you downstairs in the lobby and then had so much fun as I introduced you around to the Office of Letters and Light Staff!

    It’s so good to see your post and to know you enjoyed the event as much as I did. It was truly such an honor to spend time with you and all of the Wrimos that night!

    Sending my best to you and yours during the Holiday Seasons and I look forward to next year’s NaNoWriMo and writing a novel in a month with you then!

  2. Hello Cylithria, nice to meet you. It was an unforgettable evening and gave me so much inspiration to write on. Now I sit here with a winning shirt that arrived by mail from NaNoWriMo yesterday. Thanks for the warm welcome I received during the evening. Now, I look forward to complete the script so I’m ready for next November.
    Sincerely
