NaNoWriMo Kick-off Party and 3-2-1 Blast Off! Events!

 

Kick-off Party, Saturday October 29, 2:00 p.m.

It is a NaNoWriMo tradition to gather together the evening of October 31, and at the stroke of midnight, start writing!  For some, this will prove difficult in 2016, as the NaNoWriMo official start date begins on a Tuesday.  For many, attending the traditional opening on a Monday night will be difficult.  Therefore, the Houston NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaisons (ML’s) will host a Kick-off Party on Saturday, October 29, from 2 to 4 p.m.   Join Houston NaNoers at the IHOP located at 11225 Katy Freeway for a fun and exciting Kick-off to NaNoWriMo 2016. There will be NaNoWriMo Survival Packs with helpful supplies, activities to inspire your writing muse, and schedules of write-ins and support, wherever you are in the Houston area!

 

Rev Your Engine Event begins Monday, October 31 at 7:00 p.m. 

For those who are “up for it”, the ML’s will host a 3-2-1 Blast Off! on Halloween Eve at IHOP, located at 11225 Katy Freeway.  Come socialize at this event any time after 7 p.m., October 31 and “blast off” with your fellow Space City Nanoer’s at midnight. Stay through the morning as you break through the literary stratosphere!  Come dressed in your Halloween costume; for even more inspiration, come dressed as a character of NaNoWriMo project!
