Pictures are now available from the first ever Illinois All-State Write-In, November 22, 2008. The brainchild of Chicago ML TimSimms, the event was hosted by the Illinois::Naperville region at the Warrenville City Hall.
As Katherine noted, the event was lots of fun. I believe that we had close to 40 people in attendance. My daughter Kristiana won the first 17 minute wordwar with 1955 words (I hit a personal best 979
words that round–go figure):
I have also put up pictures from previous write-ins in Warrenville and down at the 95th Street Library (part of the Naperville Public Library–many thanks to them for their generous support of NaNoWriMo and our region!). See
Finally, please be sure to sign-up to attend the fun-filled pot-luck Thank Goodness It’s Over party! Whether you completed your novel or not or even if you are just thinking about competing in a future NaNoWriMo, you’ll have fun! The event is December 13th at the Naperville Municipal Center.
