The Night of Writing Dangerously!!

So I was able to save up enough money to go to The Night of Writing Dangerously! It was AWESOME!! My mother and I had a blast. This calls for pictures!

There were a ton of people there! I was so happy that I got to meet a ton of them while I was there. Everyone, OLL staff and regular Wrimos included, were super nice and really seemed like great people.

I'm happy that I got to sit at a table full of some wonderful people too. Our table seriously had it going on. Two people won prizes for being top fundraisers, one won a raffle, and yours truly won the costume contest! And a word war! Even though that was by default for being the only hand writer at the time... I still count it though! Lol!

By the way, did you notice all the people in that first picture walking around with crowns on? You got one of those after you reached 50k and rang the bell as two of my table members did together!

We also got to listen to a lot of good speeches as well from people like Chris Baty himself, the man that started NaNoWriMo! He's actually leaving his job at the OLL to write full time. Good luck, Chris!

Anyways, I had a blast and I thank all of the staff members for putting on such an awesome event. These are some seriously awesome people, (glad to say that one of them is even my Municipal Liaison! :D ), and I applaud you all.

And thank YOU GUYS, all of you reading this, for donating and spreading the word around on my behalf. I really appreciate it. I'm so excited about this that I've even started to plan for next year. Ha! Who's coming with me!? Lol.

Thanks again guys. Go finish those novels while I work on mine and I'll see you next time!

Yes! We're well into the the second week onf Nanowrimo and I am..... so far behind. Lol. As I'm writing this I have around 11000 and I'm suppose to be around 25000. Maybe I should be working on it instead of this.... Hmmm. Lol. I'm not giving up hope yet! I still have Thanksgiving Break to do nothing but write and not to mention the Night of Writing Dangerously next weekend.

I'm so excited. This is going to be a great month.

My story this year is about a guy that finds out he can teleport anywhere by just touching a map. Here's a little snippet:

"Ok... What's wrong?" he asked.

"Nothing, just listen, ok?" his mom started. "Remember that time when you were five and you went from the map to the store?"

"I can hardly remember anything from when I was five."

"Well, what about the time you set o the schol fire alarm?"

"That I do remember. What about it? You aren't still holding that over my head are you?"

"No, it's just... I think you got in that room by touching the map..."

Jerry stared for a second. "That... makes sense!"

Lol. That, in so many words, sums up my MC and what he's dealing with. I'm having a lot of fun with it an my some what lack of plot. Lol.

Anyone else doing Nano? What's your story about? What are you working on if you're not doing Nano? I'll see you all later!
