For Wednesday, October 30, 2019 = THE WEEK NANO STARTS!
This week the Sacramento region held 3 write-ins, attended by 26 persons, of whom 10 were writing and reporting their word counts. These wrote a total of 7,283 words.
How to help your MLs
Paul and Max can use some assistance during this busy week. Here’s how you can help out:
- Start using the Regional Forum as your primary means of communication. Although the rest of the NNWM website is broken, the forums work fine. They’re the best way for us to do many-to-many communications.
- Bring breakfasty food to the Saturday kickoff.
- Let Max or Paul know if you’re able to bring a coffee maker and filters Saturday morning. Also a large thermal carafe or two. Max will bring ground coffee, sweeteners, creamers. But we need two or more coffee makers.

Create your own write-in
You can set up your own write-in. Just conspire with people in your area, come up with a time and place to meet, and let your MLs know. We’ll put it on the calendar. (This is how we got an Elk Grove write-in this November!)
