It’s that magical time of the year, everyone. The weather gets colder, the sun is setting earlier, the soft whispers for pumpkin spice latte and eggnog fill the air. That magical time where we hole ourselves in a room for the month of November, trying to will the words to come while surviving off of coffee and hissing at anyone who dares interrupt our muses is here. It’s NaNoWriMo/NinerWriMo time!!!

If anyone doesn’t know what NaNoWriMo is, here’s a great post from last year that explains it but basically 50k words in 30 days. Crazy, I know but totally doable as Myseri has done it many times and I myself have succeeded both times I’ve done it.

If that doesn’t tickle your fancy but still have some writing, plotting or editing you want to do, we here at the ObservationDeck have the alternative NinerWriMo. We just do weekly check ins to discuss our progress or even ask for help whenever we’re stuck. Here’s the tag if you want to see what we’ve done in the past and if you’re on Twitter, there’s a good chunk of io9er there.

So, are you in?
