...total collective word count to date
My mountain man can't hardly wait to start chasing the 50,000 word mark. Less ambitious, I've been visiting the NaNoSite, which will at the least encourage me to add "NaNo" to every concept that will hold still. Ye who read these words, beware!
Hmmmm. Is this poaching on Blogger's part, or is it community service? Actually the NaNoLinks are reasonably prominent; I was two clicks from NaNoFinancing.
Best Donor Premium EVER: gifts over 1k entitle the giver to "one nagging/encouraging phone call during November about your novel from Chris Baty (this call is transferable to any NaNoWriMo participant should you not be interested in having the nagging directed at you personally.)"
What thrills me about the whole concept is that NaNoWriMo is driven by the combined forces of competition and cooperation. Is there even a word for that?
In any event, best wishes to all!
Also: this is priceless.
