Well, that’s another NaNo down. This year 167,354 people signed up. Of them 98,045 wrote more than one word, and 32,166 ‘won’ (defined as writing 50,000 words or more). Collectively we wrote 2,147,483,647 words. Sixteen people claim to have written more than a million words (the current version of the website can’t record more than 999,999 words for a particular person). Some of these claims I believe, others are clearly false.
I really enjoyed it, although I am less happy with what I produced this year than last, and I’m sure I’ll be up for it again next year.
