Dear Sir/Madam/Boss/Friend/Significant Other/Family Member,
We are taking this opportunity to request you not schedule anything of importance for the individual named below from November 1-30, 2009.
In fact, Sherri and Cam would like to have the entire month of November off to participate in NaNoWriMo. As a writer participating in NaNoWriMo, the above named person must have every possible minute to write a 50,000 (Sherri) and 10,000 (Cam) word novel along with other writers from around the world in just 30 days.
So, if you can please see your way clear please provide them the next 30 days to write freely. Cancel all meetings, games, family events, and all events you might have been considering. Plan on eating out, doing your own laundry, sleeping on the couch if the tapping of keys on the lap top disturbs you and intelligent conversation due to sleep deprivation will not be possible with the above named individual.
For employers little or more like no actual work will be done by the above named person, except for writing. Cancel all deadlines, important projects, company meetings, or any other professional activities deter from the writer’s goal.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but the person really needs the time to write. We promise a normal routine, including meals and clean clothes will recommence promptly on December 1st.
Laura H and Leah W
Municipal Liaisons for the Las Vegas Chapter of NaNoWriMo
