NaNoWriMo Chat Room: Unofficial, but International…

Not every writer is able to attend a write-in. Sometimes the weather is against you. Sometimes family life takes over and writing during the day is just not possible. Or maybe you’re extremely shy and don’t feel comfortable around people you don’t know. Well…

nanowrimo_2016_webbanner_participantThe Municipal Liaisons from different regions around the world have come together to create the perfect on-line chat for those participating in this year’s NaNoWriMo.

Jessie Sanders, radio talk show host on KLRN Radio, has graciously offered to host a special chat room for NaNoWriMo participants on her website. While Jessie is not a writer herself, she does know how isolating writing can be. She wants to help support writers. She does this through her radio show, Jessie’s Coffee Shop, and through the chat room.

You don’t need any special account to login to the room. If you have any one of the following accounts, then you’re all good to go:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • Instagram
  • Tumblr
  • ChatWing

The rules of the chat room are simple:

  1. No profanity.
  2. Play nice.
  3. Have fun.

I should stress that this is a chat room and not a forum. People come and go. Messages will be whizzing by and don’t hang around forever. And this is an unofficial NaNoWriMo chat, but it is international.

There are a number of MLs participating, myself included. We come from all around the world: USA, Australia, and New Zealand. The MLs will make themselves known when they login, so rest assured, there will always be someone around.

Scheduled VWrite-Ins are listed on the site, with calendars for different time zones.

Come on over and take a look at our chat room. This year’s NaNoWriMo is going to be fun!

P.S. I’d love to meet you on Twitter or Facebook.
