From "rozeecheeks," one of our ML's for Phoenix:
Here it is, folks, the official 2007 write-in schedule! It's fairly solid, but there's definitely wiggle room if any changes need to be made. I'll update this thread if need be.
*****NOTE: Willow House has NOT reopened yet, so the write-ins that were scheduled there are being moved to other locations until it does, hopefully during NaNo.*****

Now, I know what you're thinking: "Jeezy creezy, that's a ton of write-ins!" Yes, we realize that. But here's the deal:
First, there are 649 members of this forum as of right now. Different folks=different strokes. By scheduling so many write-ins, it's possible for more people to attend more write-ins. We'd like to increase participation this year and hope that this will make it easier to find time in crazy work and personal schedules. The write-ins are simply a chance to be less of a hermit and maybe get some assistance/inspiration from other wrimos. No one is obligated to attend, but we hope you do!
Another reason for the multitude of events is the size of the area we encompass. Amber and I are both from Central Phoenix, but we know that we have a lot of wrimos from other parts of town, so we're reaching out as much as we can so that everyone is included. At least 2 scheduled write-ins per week are in other parts of the valley. Sadly, we can't go as far as Queen Creek or Anthem, but you all are more than welcome to have your own events. I've done quite a bit of research into places and times and dates that would work for the write-ins, so please take advantage of the scheduled write-ins, even if only a few people show up.
As an aside, Amber and I will not be able to make it to every single scheduled event. You don't need us all the time, although I'm sure you'll miss our craziness! We'll attend as often as we can, mostly the ones in Central Phoenix.
Oh, also, any ideas for TGIO? We have a couple of ideas but want to hear what you guys are up for.
