NaNoWriMo as a whole had a record-breaking year. We’re talking 19% winners, almost 8% donors, and two billion words written. The final word counts are still coming in from people who had trouble validating, but my region (Atlanta) is sitting at number twelve in the world in words written.
I had my own record-breaking year, though nowhere near NaNoWriMo’s record-breaking year. Let the numbers speak for themselves.
