Scenes from the Austin "Rocky" NaNoWriMo Write-In

Austin, Texas, wrimos proved they can go the distance with a mid-month NaNoWriMo write-in at Mt. Bonnell, the city's highest point. At the time of the write-in, the Austin group was the 18th highest grossing city in the nation with just over 300 writers posting word counts. A few of these stalwart wrimos took up writer and photographer Deanna Roy's personal challenge to run up Mt. Bonnell to the theme from the original Rocky and then have a write-in at the top.

In addition to adding to the city's collective word count, the write-in resulted in these striking photographs. Read her essay "Our Fingers Are Gonna Fly Now" for a full account of the invigorating morning, or see her work from last year's Nature Write-In.

Up the steps to Mt. Bonnell for a NaNoWriMo write-in.
