As you know NaNoWriMo 2019 is starting from this coming Friday!
Everyone has different timing and reasoning, but in JHB there will be a kickoff meet-up today. You can find more details if you ever need it.
For those that would like suggestions for their warming up:
I am not the most prolific author, I only have a dream for my novel(s).
You are welcome to get NaNoE over here for your writing adventure this year! It is an open-source, free program, and all of that, so you can hold everything for yourself.
