It’s hard to believe we’re just a few weeks away from a new NaNoWriMo! In fact, it’s SOOO hard to believe, your MLs are a smidge behind schedule. Have no fear, all your favorite events from years past are coming back; we just haven’t finalized the dates yet. We’ll have that by the end of the week.
In the meantime, we’re working hard to get the website up and running again. We’re archiving all the old posts, reorganizing to make it easier to navigate, and adding tons of new content. We’ll be posting lots of old Pep Talks from current and former MLs as well as the NaNo higher ups, updating our events page to keep you up to date on what we’ve got planned for this month and give highlights of past events, and adding links to all our favorite sites.
We’ve got a lot of other great ideas we’re bouncing around, but this isn’t the MLs’ site, it’s YOUR site. All of NaNoLanta. So we need your help coming up with stuff that makes you want to come back. Help us help you by letting us know which of the following content you’d be interested in!
- A NaNoBlogMo, in which our Tech ML JFCJames blogs this year’s NaNo Novel
- An Off-Season Book Club
- An Off-Season NaNo Novel Swap/Beta Reading Circle
- Writing Contests and Challenges
- A Directory of where to find NaNoLantans on literary sites
- Writing guides—not that the MLs are any better at writing than you, but sometimes we have good ideas!
Help us help you by filling out the following survey! Just check all the extras you’d be interested in seeing and let us know in the comment box if there’s anything else you’d like to see. Anything that gets enough support we’ll be sure to implement as soon as possible.
Happy planning until November!
