So who’s in charge around this joint?
There are a bunch of people who do their best to keep the region ticking along. Look for bright blue T shirts or lanyards at official events. Any ML or Minion will be happy to help you in any way they can.
Do YOU want to be leadership? There’s always room for more volunteers in the Minion Army. All you need to do is tell an ML and they can give you plenty to do. 🙂
See the Minion Program page for more information.
NaNoing since: 2006!
Favorite Part of NaNo: The writing! I also enjoy the challenges, and the events!
Planner, Pantser, Plantser: Pantser, for sure.
My greatest NaNo weakness: Procrastination. I often am too exhausted from work to write (or do anything else, for that matter), and will put it off in favor of sitting down and doing absolutely nothing.
Fun Facts: I am a Pirate with two levels in basic Ninja skills.
You can find me: Downriver (Taylor, Wyandotte, Allen Park, Southgate, etc). I will also be found running the write-ins at Panera-on-the-hill in Allen Park on Thursdays!
Contact me: Nano mail (rainechan) during October and November, and at the NaNoWriMotown group on Facebook all year round!
MY Team is going to win The Championship Because: We are the champions, my friend. And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end. We are the champions. No time for losers. ‘Cause we are the champions of the WORLD! In all seriousness, though… The Dragons and Unicorns will get boggled down by the uphill battle and die. The Golden Phoenixes will die from it too, sure, but we’ll revive! And while the dragons and unicorns are still dead, we’ll make it across the finish line. HA! (how morbid!)
NaNoing since: 2006

MY Team is going to win The Championship Because: Dragons. Duh…
NaNoing since: 2009
Favorite Part of NaNo: The way the air smells like writing
Planner, Pantser, Plantser: Light Planner, with less and less research done as November approaches
My greatest NaNo weakness: If I get ahead early on, I start taking breaks and inevitably fall behind again
Fun Facts: I’ve written paranormal/suspense, erotica, science fiction, fantasy, YA and comic books scripts. Apparently I can’t chose a genre
You can find me: on the East side, at write-ins on Mondays and Tuesdays and at Boot Camp because BOOT CAMP IS LIFE
Contact me: my NaNomail, Modern_Ruin
MY Team is going to win The Championship Because: Unicorns are known for their tenacity, stubbornness and their surprisingly high WPM. Don’t let the hooves fool you.
NaNoing since: 2004, whaaaaat
Favorite Part of NaNo: the events!
Planner, Pantser, Plantser: plantser, heavy on the pants
My greatest NaNo weakness: unnecessary commas and an inability to transition between dialogue and description
Fun Facts: honestly unsure how commas actually work, so I just kind of sprinkle them liberally and hope for the best.
You can find me: (where in the region are you located/what events do you typically attend.) Close to the border, wherever Owen can be found. Hopefully at most write ins, but that depends on work.
Contact me: deesarrachi on the site
MY Team is going to win The Championship Because: caw caw mother effer. We’re gonna work really hard and do our best!
NaNoing since: 2012
Favorite Part of NaNo: Writing with the community. Way better than writing alone.
Planner, Pantser, Plantser: Plantser
My greatest NaNo weakness: Plantser who tends to over-plan and then doesn’t write because everything is already written down. In outline form. So obviously I need to work on that.
Fun Facts: I’m hearing impaired! In my opinion, that makes me a superhero. Just call me the Amazing Writing Panther. I also am older than I look. You’re free to guess my age, I may or may not confirm it.
You can find me: Saturday Grosse Pointe write-ins, occasional Saturday Mt. Clemens write-in, Tuesday Bean and Leaf write-ins, Wednesday virtual write-ins, all major events
Contact me: NaNo Mail
MY Team is going to win The Championship because: Dragons, duh! Dragons can breathe fire and chomp the other team animals to bits without having to move their jaws wide. Why else?
Favorite Part of NaNo: the write-ins
