Word is, participant numbers for the year have been incredible. Between both adult and youth programs, NaNoWriMo is currently hosting over 200,000 high-velocity novelists!
So, when you're able to read "Get in the Soup and Other Silly Stories", a sibling collaboration between Sagezilla and Du-Jay. And when you can read the first three novels in The Mystery Runes Series--Fehu, Uruz and Thurisaz...........thank NaNoWriMo for kicking us in the collective booties every November and giving us a hard and fast deadline.
(Hard being the key word....especially with sick kids early in the month who give you what they had....and piles of laundry and dishes...and a tree that fell down in the recent storms taking up the whole yard...and big pets and little kids who clamor to be fed and paid attention to...and taken to classes)
(And fast being.....egad! November is OVER in 10 days and 6 of those are NOT school days and one of those is taken by Thanksgiving with relatives. And I still have to write how many thousand words?!!! Whimper.)
