Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

Happy nano!

So we tried really hard to update as normal all through this arc, and we ALMOST did it. (There’s one or two pages left.) But this last week or so has been the most intense of Nano, so ONE filler for you.

Do you do nano? Have you HEARD of nano? Well. Let me tell you. National Novel Writing Month is super fun and everyone should do it. If you like to write, no matter if you’re a complete amateur that knocks out a few fanfic chapters now and again, up to a professional novelist, Nano is a great community experience that will only make you a little bit insane. Check out to learn more about it. Or ask in the comments! I will tell you EVERYTHING.

Laura and I are on the leadership team for our local region (NanowrimoTOWN. geddit?) which is largely why we are so crazy this month. We work with the rest of our peoples to put on events and do all encouragements, and also, we are the art department! We make all the buttons and swag and fun stuff.

One of the things we make is this FABULOUS collectible poster that goes with our Team Championship. This year’s theme was time travel, so there’s all that awesome clock stuff, and time quotes, and steampunky goodness to go with our three time machines. Hope you enjoy looking at it!

Do…you WANT one? I wouldn’t assume so if you aren’t a Detroit Nano person, but hey, maybe you really like clocks and stuff, I don’t tell you how to live your life. And Laura and I made it, and it’s limited edition! If you do, send $15 to and it will be shipped to you. Make sure to include your address, obv, and a note that you want a nano poster from Sidekick Girl. Every penny of the proceeds go to funding the community.

ARE you a nano person? How are your words going? Gonna win this year? Laura has already won, and I am a few thousand behind, but I should still be able to finish on time.

    Congrats guys! I failed hard this year OTL. I guess that’s what happens when you move a week before nano, and then go on a tropical vacation 8 days in. OTL.
    I want to re-add you guys as my writing buddies though, but I don’t remember your names OTL.

    Oof, yeah, that’s a good reason to fail. But every word is a new word! I’ll email you our usernames so we can all be friends.
