Dear writers,

Let's kick-start this year's National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo) with an long silent writing session! For those who don't know NaNoWriMo yet, it's a global challenge to write a novel (50,000 words) in one month. You can find out more about the initiative on their official website: nanowrimo.org.

If you are not working on a novel don't feel discouraged. I, for example, haven't set myself a word goal this year but would like to finish two stories I've been working on. November is a great time to get some work done on your current project: it's cold, it's dark and it's not Christmassy yet.

After an introduction round, we'll do a quick writing prompt exercise Protected content to get us in the mood to write. After that we just write!

Please note:

- this is meant as a motivational event for active writers. The goal is to write for the sake of writing and without pressure. Let the stuff flow as it comes, you can always edit later!
- the general discussion will be in English but everyone can write in the language they normally write in.
- I usually ask people to stay for the entire session but since this is a long one and concentration can be tricky, try to stay as long as you can.

Looking forward to meeting you and your writing!
