Welcome to NaNoWriMo 2019 in the ChiWriMo region! November is right around the corner, can you believe it?
We’re gearing up for a fun month of novel-writing mayhem, so to kick things off, we’re doing a little “getting to know you” segment so you can learn a little more about your municipal liaison team here in ChiWriMo.
Second up: Gabe

Favorite part of Nano: Being able to go to write-ins in person to focus on writing and meet new writers!
Most challenging part of Nano: writers blocks!
Most memorable Nano moment: completing my first novel in my first year.
Other miscellaneous fun: I’ve been a planner, pantser, and planster over my 3 years of doing nano. I’ve found that planning works best for me.
Favorite Writing Quote: “Whatever story is in your mind, just write it so you can get it on paper.” Gabriel Fisher
Hello! My name is Gabriel Fisher. I live in River Forest, IL. I’ve been doing NaNoWriMo for four years. I have completed NaNoWriMo for three years. Besides writing, I like to learn, play video games, read, listening to music and watch YouTube.
As for a good tip for NaNoWriMo, if you’re a planner, I recommend creating a word document for the world building of your novel. Make sure to include characters, settings, as well as an outline for your novel. This way, if you get stuck, you have something to fall back on to help you keep going.
