Countdown to NaNoWriMo

Can you believe November is sneaking up on us so soon? By now all you current Wrimos have received notification that the forums are closing this Sunday and will stay down until October 1st. If there is anything there that you still want to read, comment or save, you better do it now or it will be lost forever. That applies to NaNoMail as well. Anything over one year old will be deleted. I know a lot of people complain about it but if we put it into perspective it isn’t really that bad. Think of it as a cleansing. Kind of like what we do at 11:55 on October 31st. Clear the mind, throw out the junk and breathe. We get rid of the I can’ts, I won’ts and all the other negative feedback hanging out inside our brains and then we write on a clean slate. Remember if you can’t stand the blank forums, you have 31 days to fill them up again before NaNoWriMo launches for its tenth year. I’ll see you there!
