This is our seventeenth year of this wonderful event! While there have been several changes in the way things operate over those years, the core of WriYe has always remained the same: write all year and make new friends doing so. So, once you've decided how much you want to write in 2020 and have signed up for a goal, introduce yourself here and get to know each other. Say whatever you would like (however much or however little), and have a great time.
I'm Roisin and I'm one of your friendly neighborhood mods. I've been at WriYe since 2009. I live in the Seattle area, have three cats and a corgi and work as a chef. I also like to dabble in photography.
I tend to focus on realistic/mainstream fiction that deals with the wonders and messiness of families and the relationships within them.
I am Keri (if you want to tag me, though, then it's SlySionnach). I have returned to being a moderator this year after a brief hiatus. I also have been around since 2009, usually causing chaos by creating challenges. I love fantasy, love horror, and love to write epic series that really need to get themselves under control.
I am the mother of one little terror toddler, a professor (believe it or not), and the director of a university laboratory (or a few now...).
Hey I'm Ana, but I also go by Tatra! (tag me at Tatra and also I'm on Discord as Tatra). I've been with Wriye since 08/09 (though I took a few years off like 2016-2018?) I'm usually horrible at updating things, but I'm on the discord a lot
I have way too many cats, I like to craft (knitting, crocheting, and spinning fiber), and I also love to read (which is why I am running the 2020 reading challenge!).

I'm Sam. I signed up ages ago but chickened out of making the commitment to join in. I'm jumping in with both feet this time! I'm on 4thewords as space-merc and I'm on discord a lot. I mainly write Science Fantasy and I love my tropes. When I'm not writing I'm trying to learn to draw better, building with Lego, watching TV or playing a handful of video games.

Hi! I'm Mel, and I joined in late 2009 (so technically 2010 lol). I've been slacking on writing anything for a few years but this past November I came back with a vengeance. I write primarily fantasy and sci fi (though more of the space opera variety! I am not a scientist, but an artist lol).
Real life me lives in the Seattle area (originally from PA though, send me dunkin donuts pls thanks) and I work as a graphic designer for a grocery store chain that can't get it together and so, I suffer. When I'm not writing, I'm playing video games (usually RPGs though the occasional shooter to get out my aggression) and reading fantasy.
Hi, I’m Winter! This year I won NaNo for the first time in a long time and got hyped to write all year but could really use that sense of community to keep me going. Then I remembered WriYe which I joined once years ago but never really participated. This year I’m ready. I tend to write all over fantasy/sci-fi/horror. I also read/watch thrillers and select mainstream stuff. I like video games and select anime. One of my dreams is to become a featured Webtoon artist. I live north of Seattle. My NaNo region is NaNoSnoCo. I enjoy knitting and crochet. I’m conversational in Japanese. I’m generally open to beta so let me know if you need something (except erotica, not my cup of tea
Hello! I'm Jae. It's a new name, but I used to hang out around these forums about five years ago. I was ShelbyDanvers back then (wow, typing that was a trip down memory lane!)
Anyway. A lot has changed. I came out as nonbinary, aromantic, and asexual. I started focusing on writing majority LGBTQIA+ casts. I...never actually stopped with my love of dystopian fiction, even if it feels dangerously close to contemporary these days.
I was looking for some NaNo-esque challenges for 2020 when I remembered this place. 2019 was...rough. I hit a major depressive spell, my anxiety got out of control, I got stuck living with a toxic roommate, our house got a bedbug infestation, etc. But the lease is over, bugs are gone, toxic roommate is gone, my mental health is under control, and I'm finally starting to feel passion for writing again, so I decided to sign back up here as part of my goal to make 2020 a better year.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to chat soon. - Jae
Hey I'm namssor! This is won't be the first WriYe that I have attempted, but it's been a short while since I've been around these forms. I've actually really taken a long break from writing in general, and I'm looking forward to picking back up the pencil (metaphorically speaking of course). I'm excited to jump into some writing challenges with everyone.
Hi call me Moonsc. I am a monther of 4 girls ages 2-15. I write in severly diffent gera but my home gera is Family saga/Fantsery. O and I also have a learning disablitery that make spelling verry heard for me in case you all wanding what with all the typo.
Hello, all! I'm Kandybar (or Kit)! My first WriYe was back in 2006, and since then I've popped in every few years or so since then. Before 2019, I was last here in 2013.
I write primarily fantasy/science fiction/horror (and combinations thereof), though I am pondering trying my hand at cozy mysteries. Aside from writing, I'm working on improving my illustration skills, belong to a local choir (and am in the ensemble for a musical happening in February), and am vaguely poking at programming because I'm not sure what I'm going to do to with myself once the kids are in school full-time come next August.
I am also normally in the discord though I do not always remember to check to see if people are also there.

Hi all! I'm Briana and this is actually my first Wriye. I've fallen off the bandwagon of writing the past couple of years due to a lot of changes in my life and lost of motivation for my writing but I'm hoping year 2020 will bring more words out of me.

Hey y'all! I'm Kaybee (Or Remm, I go by both). My first WriYe started back in 2018, I'm a bit of a baby writer compared to some of the veterans on here. I decided to try WriYe out after having little success with NaNo and it seemed to have worked out. 2019 was a great writing year for me and I hope 2020 will have the same success!
I write mainly LGBTQ+, Fantasy and YA stories or some combination of the three. What can I say, I have a niche and I stick to it. I am trying to break apart from writing only novels; in 2020 I hope to write more plays.
Outside of writing, I'm a college student who is majoring in Psychology and minoring in Creative Writing. I used to major in Pop Culture, but that didn't really pan out. Despite that, I do still take interest in all forms of media, such as comics, video games, music, and drawn art. I'm trying to branch off a bit more in my interests, but I kind of have a bit of a one-track mind.
Hey all, I'm Misa and I've been around a good while, though I've not actually won. I've a few NaNoes and Camps under my belt, and I've been published through a small press. I write mostly sci fi romance, though sometimes wander into fantasy and urban fantasy, again with a romantic bent. My stories are on the adult side, though not erotic. Just spicy, heh.
I'm a full-time carer for my husband since July '19. It's taken me a while to get into the swing of things, so I'm being gentle on myself with my writing plans for 2020. Other plans for the year include getting out more and I've started a blog to track our adventures
Hello ! I'm Sumi B. (or Sumi), i'm french and I don't speak english very well, but I will have efforts (I read english, but I speak badly). It's my first WriYe, but I am part of NaNoWriMo and CampNaNo since 2011, WriYe is a goal to write more frequently ! I am on the same project since 2010, a serie of book around two characters in real life (our world world), but I'm on a spin-off since two year now. This year, I will especially rewrite (not correct, but rewrite !) this project and write spin-off of spin-off of spin-off, haha. For the NaNo, I like atmosphere and challenge, I hope to find this here with you
In real life, currently, I finished my studies and I seek enmployment (so I have spare time, haha !). And my other hobby is the hiking I'm exciting about beginning !
