Write-ins at Naperville Caribou
Are you an evening writer? Then come to a write-in Monday at 6:30pm - 8:55 (Caribou closes at 9.)
Are you a morning writer? Then come to a write-in Tuesday at 9:30 a.m - 11:30
Both of these are at the Caribou at 1523 North Aurora Road,
If you'd like to write in the company of other writers, stop by. There will be word wars, and prizes, and writing. We're usually near the back. Look for a blue sign that says, "Write-in NaNoWriMo."
There are three of us here at 6:40 -- and each of us has a table for 4, so plenty of room.
I'l be here until 9.
I meant to come to the write-in this morning, but that would've meant getting on the road by 8:30 at the LATEST--and probably earlier, because, y'know, rush hour traffic and such... plus, I ALSO meant to do some real research on the local elections before I vote, which needs to happen at some point today... and I had insomnia last night, so 2+ hours of driving today without being well-rested probably wouldn't have been a good idea.
So do have fun, and enjoy the beginning of the end of the political ads... And in the meantime, I'll just have to write at the Starbucks in Gurnee or something and pretend I'm surrounded by other awesome writing people. And have my own mini word wars against... hm... my key chain? Hey, that's ONE way to win a word war!

Not a problem. I wouldn't fight morning traffic for an hour to go to Caribou for two hours. If you want some virtual company, I'll be on the jabber chat. (But not chatting much.) We can do some word wars, though.
Also, maybe this write-in in Hoffman Estates would be closer, if so, be sure and sign up so Gail knows you're interested.
Monday night we had:
Oh, and FinBarrMcG stopped in at 8:50 to recite a bit of 'Sam I Am.' Carly may have had her headphones in which prevented a too vivid flashback to the Poetry Slam in Wheaton on Sunday night.
Golden paperclips were distributed along with two plot/character critters given in a 'Do or Die' 5 minute word war where we each had to read one line that we'd written during that five minutes. One prize for most words, one for best line. All the lines were good, by the way.

Paperclips were won. Two people now have two! Who will be the first to get a third gold paperclip? Stay tuned.
If you'd like company while you write, join us. (This week there will also be a write-in on Friday morning at this Caribou.)
You could earn one of the extremely coveted shiny gold paper-clip prizes!
Or get a spatula if you're stuck. Or a coffee scoop if you're having trouble and need to scoop up some words.
