Greetings Wrimos!

This is the swap you need to join to participate in our Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017, online write-in.This is our sixth year of holding this NaNoWriMo event!

How it works

Join the swap. Please don't delay in this step. I need to know exactly who is in the swap because there are items I need to snail mail to all participants before the write-in. These are items that you'll need during the event and they need time to get to international participants.

Note: I will have electronic "backups" of the goodies for everyone, just in case the mail doesn't get to them in time.

We have word wars and a few games, and there are prizes!

Chat below. Post your NaNo name below. Feel free to chat about NaNo leading up to the write-in day.

Come write-in

Our actual event takes place from 3 p.m-5 p.m (U.S Eastern time) in the NaNoWriMo Swapping Group Forum. (New to the format? See the 2014 thread for how it works.)

We hold the write-in at this time in order to accommodate as many group members as possible. It's very early a.m. for Australia/New Zealand, but afternoon, midday for others, and not too late evening for Europe.

I will create the thread for the actual write-in a couple of days before the event.

How do I rate my partner?

This is basically an electronic swap. Rate your partner a 5 after he/she signs in to the event on the write-in thread with a hello message.

If you'd like to snail mail your partner a NaNo greeting, feel free. But that is not required.

You DO NOT have to stay the entire two hours. You can come write-in as long as you'd like. But you DO need to post a hello at some point during the event to be rated a 5.

Other Questions?

If you have other questions, post below. We'll talk/chat here UNTIL the write-in begins.


Join swap. Post NaNo name below. On Sunday, Nov. 19 from 3-5p (US Eastern) log in to Swap-bot and go to the group forum of the NaNoWriMo Swapping group. Write during the cyber write-in.

Electronic. International. Group membership.

Thanks so much for hosting this year, @ariestess

Hi all! I'm in. My NaNo name is *Artisticinva.

Last year, I had to have rotator cuff surgery in the middle of NaNo. This year, I'm moving from Virginia to Texas in the middle of NaNo. Still aiming for 50K though!

Well crap. I might have to miss this swap. I'll be at an event five hours away from home that weekend and coming home on Sunday. I'm not sure if I will be back in time.

@Nserviam if you're back in time, you can still come join us. I'll have some extra digital kits for people to use if they join us last minute.
