about 1 month agoA couple of people have asked me how to get a shiny halo. Well, the answer is simple!
Go here: https://store.nanowrimo.org/donations and donate $10 (about £6-7) or more (there are extra goodies if you chose a $25+ donation).
And then BOOM: Halo for you.

about 1 year agoThanks to the Chocolate Box of Delicious Donations (and you guys who came out tonight for a very entertaining failure at writing-in) I've been able to donate $6 to OLL. Woo hoo!
I'll be bringing the box to future write-ins if you want to swap your pocket change for chocolate & donate to OLL at the same time!
So far today our region has more than DOUBLED the donations we had made up until yesterday, so a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has donated today and in the rest of the month, and a poke with my Writer Poking Stick if you haven't yet. Remember, if you don't have change to spare, look at the 'donating when broke' page!
Finally: you are awesome, Brighton. Keep on keepin' on :)

Yesterday our collective word-count sailed past THREE MILLION WORDS!
Give yourselves a pat on the back* for being awesome.
*You may also substitute chocolate in place of a pat on the back if you are less dexterous.
