I had the honor of co-hosting a special Shut Up & Write! event last night. A small gathering of eager writers, ready and willing to stay up until midnight to get a running start on their NaNo Novels. As well as a few who were just crazy enough to stay up after all the Halloween festivities to join in on the hour-long writing sprint (Costumes Optional). We had fun conversations while waiting for the opportune hour and great progress was made towards our individual writing goals. I myself was able to reach a whopping 1300 words! Just a few hundred short of my daily writing goal.
