NaNo 2017 is over, and we’re thrilled to announce that (minus suspicious word counts) the writers of London wrote a sensational 49,654,758 words! This makes us the winner in the Seattle vs. London Word War, and is equivalent to just over 993 winning novels!

Our Sunday write-ins are taking a break for December, but will resume in the New Year and continue every week, same time, same place, throughout 2018.

Thanks so much for being part of NaNoWriMo with us - we’ll see you very soon!

NaNoRilla is today! We’ll be meeting at the Lakeside Terrace at the Barbican from 11am, and setting off at 12am on a walking tour around London.

At 6pm, our Mid Month Party will be at the Spice of Life in Cambridge Circus (just next door to the Palace Theatre.)

Sign ups for the All Night Lock In on 25th/26th November, in Croydon, are now open. As in previous years, we need you to have signed up before you can come to ANLI. Please see the pinned post below for information on the event and a link to the sign up form.

We hope you're having a great NaNo and are now well on your way to the 50K target! If not, don't give up - it's early days yet, there's plenty of time to get back on track. A little extra every day can go a long way to wiping out any word-debt you might have accrued.

Our next ML-led Write-In will be tomorrow, back in the basement at Pret in Hanover Square from 1300-1600. Nearest tubes Oxford Circus and Bond Street. There are additional Write-Ins, led both by your ML team and by other participants, throughout the week. See the calendar below for details.

Have a great week, and stay safe on Fireworks Night!

Less than two hours to go until NaNo 2017 starts in the UK! Excited? I am!

The first Write-In will be led by your ML team tomorrow. We'll be at Pret a Manger in Hanover Square between 1800-2000, in the basement. Nearest tube stations are Oxford Circus and Bond Street. Look for the people in NaNo T-shirts.

Good luck everyone!

There will be a plot-in tomororow (Sunday 29th.) Come and say hi, grab a sticker, and nail down your last few plot beats before NaNo starts on Wednesday. (Or don't. We won't judge you.)

We'll be at Pret a Manger in Hanover Square from 1pm to 4pm. Look for the NaNoWriMo t-shirts in the basement.

Tube: Oxford Circus, Bond Street, or any bus going down Oxford Street or Regent Street. NB: don't rely on Google Maps, it may try to send you to the wrong Pret on Hanover Street (round the corner.)

See you there - and don't forget to put your clocks back tonight!

Four days to NaNo! Wheeeee!

Our KICK-OFF PARTY will be TOMORROW, Saturday 28th October, at the Mad Hatter Hotel on Stamford Street from 1pm to 4pm. We'll be in the large area towards the back.

The nearest tube station is Southwark. The nearest mainline station is Blackfriars - use the South Bank exit. It's also accessible by buses 45, 63, 381, 388, RV1, and on the CS6 and Q1 cycling routes. Regrettably, there are no special prizes for people who arrive by helicopter/hovercraft/pogo stick, but don't let that stop you.

We can't wait to see you there!
