Go, Portland! We are ranked 7th in the world for visits to the NaNoWriMo website, so far.
Actually us Pacific Northwesterners in Portland do pretty well on the overall stats. We're right up there in average word counts and total word counts. And now we're high on the list for visits to the headquarters.
Two days from now I will be sitting at the kick-off write-in spot, waiting for the big 12:01 AM on November 1st, "GO"... and the noveling will begin. Jenny and I will both be there at the start line; Alexander will join us a couple days later. We have plotted out some compatible writing times - catching pieces here and there. Hours to boost each other up or commiserate or just be two or three bodies with our laptops and our in progress novels, typing away.
We are Portland NaNoWriMos and proud of it!
