The Best Selling Book of All Time is lengthy, but amazing if you get past the first 1/3 of it. I prefer the play form, but Don Quixote has a great redemption message and touts the ancient concept of chivalry, something this hopeless romantic absolutely loves...

Congrats to rachelynn for winning this prize!

And with that, my contests are finally closed. Congratulations to the winners and see you next year (and in between times as well)

Graveyard Contest Winners: (Once more, forgive the late prize giving as my newest little decided to surprise us a month and a half early...I ALMOST missed turkey dinner but for my mom and dad bringing their amazing leftovers the day after Thanksgiving (also Kenna Jane's birthday) So ALL of my prizes will be going out this weekend. Please respond if I do not have your contact information so I can get them sent out...

Winner of the Most Kills (I mean, character deaths): At 31 total deaths, Silcar is the winner hands down! Congratulations...

Winner of the Best Eulogy: K.R. Powers (loved the last line: "They should have known better)

Consolation Prize Winner: Lady_Indis_Dress for the death of her motivation. Here's hoping next year's NaNo gives you a double boost of inspiration to carry you through November.

Just a heads up on my radio silence. We got a Thanksgiving day surprise when our little Kenna Jane decided to join us for an early holiday. She's healthy, but small and just precious!

Happy Double-Up Day! If you're in the position to do so, today is a GREAT chance to make your NaNoWriMo donations. Keep an eye on the main page and blog for exciting deals going on throughout the day, including the $25 donation getting you the $50 donation perks --including an exclusive pin! How cool is that?!

It's officially begun! Make sure to check out the Contest Threads and the calendar to find out if there are events in your area! Also recall that: Facebook is NOT official and the MLs take a stance of radio silence on the group page during November. We are however on Twitter and Discord for write-in purposes. Please contact us via NaNoMail if you have questions or concerns. Thank you! -Samma

We're gearing up for the big Kick-Off to November happening tomorrow! Some of you may already have experienced a kick-off party. I've got my regional newsletter coming shortly, but if you've already gotten started with planning and prepping, hopefully this will give you the boost you need to start NaNoWriMo strong!

Good luck, Elsewhere-ians...
