Host a write-in party.

Write-In Party ImagePut on a casual (or glamorous) get-together in your home or nearby community space to write, inspire creativity, and build community. Rather than—or in addition to—having your guests bring food or libations, ask them to make a donation (of any amount) to NaNoWriMo. Then, at your get-together, take lots of pictures and post them with the hashtag #NaNoWriteInParty so we can live vicariously through you.
