Someday, and I swear it will be soon, I will stop talking about the NaNo. But today is not that day.
They released the stats this week for the National Novel Writing Month and they are pretty impressive:
- 256,618 participants, up roughly 28% from 2010’s total of 200,530 writers.
- We wrote a total of 3,074,068,446 words, up 7% from 2010’s collective word count of 2,872,682,109.
- This averaged out to 11,979 words per person!
- We had 36,774 winners, giving us a 14% win rate!
Happy to have been a part of it all. Of the 25 writing buddies I had this year, 13 of them completed the NaNo or 52%. Not too shabby for my friends.
