What a month it was! Laura and I both set personal bests for words written and words written in a single day. Our region had a banner year for winners, and a grand time at all the events put on by our awesome team. And we’re FULL of ideas for the new year! Thanks to those of you who sent us good wishes, and congrats to all the winners among you! And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, nanowrimo.org is the place to start. 😉
