World of Warcraft Procrastinator Support: NaNoWriMo Tip #27

As we near the end of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), all the World of Warcraft players in the audience should find some literary friends inside the online fantasy role-playing game. One player has formed the Nanowrimo Procrastinator Guild inside World of Warcraft, giving novelists and players a space to unwind after writing all day.

Here’s more from the organizer: “The Nanowrimo Procrastinator Guild is on the Misha realm. You must be a member of nanowrimo.org to join. The purpose of the guild is to provide a place where you can chill out among other writers when you are procrastinating, blocked, or even finished your daily quota, and then to be compassionately kicked in the patoosh to get you back in there and write that novel! So drop in here and say hi and let us know your toon’s name, and then log in and hopefully there will be someone there who can check your nano-name and let you in to the guild … if you see me on Twitter “@eccentricOrbits” let me know and I’ll log in and /ginvite you.”

This is our twenty-seventh NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
