    I will be here. I don’t know what I’ll be working on, but if nothing else, I can be the cheering section!

    See you then!

    Count me in for the 17th! 😀 I’ve done NOTHING on my Camp Nanowrimo book, and I need to get my butt in gear if I want to catch up. 😉

        Looks like I can make it tomorrow Milli, and will only be able to do a short one on Saturday because of work. Bit nervous about this, but excited as well!

          Sorry! That went on the wrong reply and I can’t figure out how to delete it! It’s been a long day!

            No worries, Jo. Posting on the wrong thread will simply introduce you to Lois, one of our 10K Day veterans. I know Lois won’t mind at all. 🙂

            That’s good news that you can make it tomorrow. And some nerves are understandable the first time – we’ve all had those. But you’ll find the company reassuring. See you then!

        I’m here, albeit pretty late. I got up late (Jeff’s working nights this week), and I had to do a few things first. But now that I’m here, I can begin! 😀

    Hi Milli

    Don’t think I can make the 17th, should be able to make the 20th provided nothing comes up!

    Looking forward to it!

      Hi Jo,

      Hope you can still make it for the 20th. We’ll warm it up for you tomorrow. 🙂

    Yay! Count me in.
    I’m aiming for both August 17th and 20th, but in case it doesn’t work out, either one of these will be fine too – I really need the commitment to a full day of writing right about now! 🙂

      Yay! Estrella, excited to have you join us. Hope you can make it for both, but as you say, either one is great.

    Thanks for this initiative! Estrella Azul introduced me to this blog! I love it! I missed last month but I want to try this one! I think I’ll go for the 17th because I’m off!

      Hi Franny,

      Pleased to hear Estrella introduced you to us. (Thanks, Estrella. :)) We’ll have your “seat” ready for you tomorrow for some good, juicy writing time on your day off.

    I am in for the 17th as well!!
    The only other thing I’ll have to do is to pack, as we’ll be leaving for a week in Switzerland the next day… So I’ll hope I’ll get lots of writing done this time!! Yay!

      Welcome, Lisa! Glad you found us.

      Yes, absolutely, we often have writers from different parts of the world participating. The check-in page will be available to you on the 20th no matter what time zone you live in. We’ll be pleased to have you join us. 🙂

    Good morning all!

    Looks like there are lots of new people this time ’round. Very cool! 🙂 I’m looking forward to hanging out with everyone.

    I plan to participate today and Saturday, if all goes well, though neither will be on a full-day basis. It’s the first of the school year and I have tons of paperwork to take care of for my son’s school as well as insurance and docs. yay 😉

    What will I work on? I have a blog post to draft (already have the pics picked out) and I’d like to continue working on my Camp NaNo story. So there’s plenty to do. Hope everyone has a good time and write on!

    Time for the first break to take the kid to school. I’ve gotten a blog post drafted and will finalize it when I get back.

    Hmmm, what should I have for breakfast?

      Hi Maria!

      Terrific updates so far. 🙂

      This is actually the RSVP page, and I would hate for you to be alone all day. If you go to the Home page you’ll see the “Live While It’s Happening” post. You can copy and paste your updates onto that page and then you’ll be in the fray with everybody else.
