Yes, it does deserve three exclamations AND all-caps. For those who still are unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, it is the National Novel Writing Month (aka November). Where thousands of people across the nation and, nay, across the world write together, encourage one another, and compete (in good spirit) to reach the goal of 50,000 words.
I won in 2008 and did not aim to win in 2009 but did reach my personal goal which was to actually complete a (not so short) short story. And this year, I do not intend to aim to win (academics needs to be priority #1 right now), but I do intend to participate.
And for a non-serious participant, I think I am doing quite alright: 2488 words first day/night. At the same time I do realize that it was/is easier for me to just write this one because I ended up deciding to do a story that I really don’t care that much about. Well, I suppose we shall see what comes out of this in ~30 days!
