Thank God It’s Over Party

Though no one’s yet put up their hand in response to Travis’ entry today, there are plenty of other crazy Nanowrimo writers out there. Tomorrow night we bask in the glory of our achievement.

Regardless of wordcount, all of us can attend the Thank God It’s Over Party (more details on the Vancouver Nano forum).

I’ve made it to the 50,000-word goal line. Now there is the problem of whether or not I’ll ever make it to the party.

I’ve had my heart set on going to at least one Nano meeting since I missed the opening party because of my job. Every week there was a meetup and a write-in. Matt went to one meeting only to find out that the website displayed the wrong timezone and he was late as a result. I went to another meeting, saw the group but went to buy my coffee first; when I turned the corner to get to the writers’ table, all the writers were gone. During my penultimate attempt, I was locked out of the building. May the Gods smile on me tomorrow.

The curious can visit the Vancouver Hall of Fame or check out the BC rankings.

    You can always tell the good writers; they’re the ones who make my name possessive correctly.

    I didn’t even know there was a ‘thank god it’s over party,’ so I missed it. Whoops. After my first post in the forums I just kind of forgot it was there, and although I thought I signed up for emails about upcoming events I never got one.

    I finished, though, and for that I was extremely happy.

    Wait, Jenny, don’t give up on the Nano’ers.

    They meet every month throughout the year for social purposes. Here’s their Livejournal.

    Congratulations for finishing!
