Come Together

come together
I found this picture on Facebook through my various contacts:
write out
If you live in Victoria (Australia) please get involved, Sherryl Clark knows what she’s talking about, I can’t recommend her enough. However, this picture did inspire an idea. While I’m aware that NaNoWriMo will have group meet-ups scheduled, however because my lack there-of a driver’s licence, I couldn’t get to these events during the week and, with the exception of the State Library NaNoWriMo group-meeting in the CBD, the locations weren’t easily accessible via public transport.

So I’ve decided that I try doing my NaNoWriMo writing at three possible locations:
~The State Library – Writing here would have to be on either the weekends or my day/s off from work and as I work most weekends and my weekly shifts change every week this option might be harder to organize
~The Lerderderg Library – also known as the Bacchus Marsh Library, why it’s called Lerderderg I have no idea, however the library is close to my work so I could finish my shift then head on over and do some writing there
~Victoria University, Footscray Park Campus – I attend classes at the Footscray Park Campus on a Monday

I’m incredibly lazy and have strong hermit tendencies, so for the last two years I’ve just stayed at home and wrote from there and while I know some writers who love writing in cafes, I personally find cafes to be distracting. However, I also want to acknowledge the the fact that I should occasionally try to stretch myself, maybe be more active in the online forums.

So, the questions for the readers are:
~Are you participating in this year’s NaNoWriMo?
~What NaNoWriMo region are you registered with?
~Where is your favorite location to write?
~Do you write alone or in a group?

  1. I’ll probably email Sherryl and book, since I live in Footscray!

    I don’t plan to sign up for NaNo because I don’t see the point: I don’t need help with my writing output. Right now challenging myself to put out 50k words in a month goes against the balance I’m trying to figure out, and I’ve written enough this year, I think, that NaNo isn’t required of me.

    However, I can totally meet up with you and write or edit with you, even if I’m not NaNo-ing.

    • Lol, yeah you don’t need any help with writing output, you’re dynamite at that, time to kick up your feet πŸ™‚ you’ve definitely earned a break and a reward. I shall have to take you up on the offer of non-nano writing meet up πŸ˜€ I need to get back into the habit of doing regular writing hours for my novel projects, I’ve kind of let my blogging take over, but I’ll get back into it.

      • Thanks. It’s not so much dynamite as it is crazy, but there is output involved, so it kind of works? Ish?

        On, then. I will be your NaNo cheer squad. And your test reader down the track, I very much hope!
