2019 – Final NaNoToon

First off, thank you.

Just in case you skip this whole post, I wanted to say “Thank you.” There are some of you who have been with me since the beginning, there are some of you who have just started, but you all have been encouraging, and I am so happy if my comics have encouraged you in your NaNoWriMo journey.

Yes, I am retiring this year. This is the final NaNoToon comic.

There are so many people I am thankful for. Debbie Ridpath Ohi was the main reason these started, and she has always been one of my biggest cheerleaders. To her I’m eternal grateful.

I am thankful to Vix, who was an ML during a few of my years. She helped me with a bit of editing, and was one of the very first people I met when I started doing NaNo!

And Kari Maaren has been with me for the longest time, putting up with my horrible grammar, spelling, and too many commas. Check out her webcomic It Never Rains. It’s about time travel! And you can also check out her book, “Weave a Circle Round“, which is also about time travel!

Again, thanks to NaNoWriMo. I got a chance to meet Chris Baty, and he didn’t look at me too strangely. 😀 It’s because of him we’re all doing this!

And also thanks to Grant Faulkner and the whole NaNo team at headquarters. They were very hospitable and fun when I met them during a Night of Writing Dangerously. 😀

Honestly, there are too many to thank, and the whole community of NaNo has been amazing. I will continue being one of NaNo’s biggest fanboys. If you ever get a chance to donate to NaNoWriMo, please do. I shall do so now. ^_^

Will there be a compilation of NaNoToons? I get that question a lot. I will try to get one done before next NaNo. It won’t be something I will make money off of, I hope to donate it to NaNoWriMo to sell if they are so willing! So I’ll keep you posted.

Again, thank you! I hope your NaNo went exceedingly well. Remember, you’re a writer. 🙂

  1. Thanks for years of entertainment! I’ve been following you for years and your comic has been an important part of my nanowrimo experience.

  2. What a wonderful end to the comics. Thank you, Errol, for years of NaNo enjoyment. I wish you luck on your future ventures!

  3. Thank you, Errol!
    During November I’m allowed only two fun things: 30 Covers in 30 Days and NaNoToons! And I certainly have turned my region on to NaNoToons! Very wonderful!
    Thanks again, Errol!

  4. Errol,
    I started my Nano journey 10 years ago and your NaNoToons were what taught me all the acronyms and inside jokes. They were my daily dose of humor and being reminded that I am not alone in this crazy writing journey.

    Thank you so much!!

  5. I will miss Nanotoons. Always my favorite part of Nano. Good luck in wherever you go from here. Thanks for entertaining me for the past years

  6. Jen’s right. As long as there are writers, the stories never end. What a beautiful way to finish the comic!

    If you do get a compilation done, I’d recommend putting it out separately (maybe through a POD service) and setting up the sales royalties to go directly to NaNo. Just a thought.

    Thank you for all of these years of entertainment. And no, Rob can’t have her chips! 😉

  7. What an amazing end to the NaNoToon era. Thank you so much, Errol, for all the years of NaNo goodness! Many thanks to Debbie for starting this journey. I think you finished it in a wonderful way! The flashbacks were fun this season.

    I’ll check again next year to see if you have the compilation out or not. I will buy it immediately! You’ve also inspired me to create a writing comic of my own. Even if it’s just to keep myself motivated every week.

    Take care and I look forward to seeing what you do in the future!

  8. Just wanted to say I throughly enjoyed NaNoToons and really missed the gang this year. Thanks for making all our world a bit brighter!
