Camp is about a month away! I will be very honest: I do not know if Camp will be taking place on the "new" website or on the Camp NaNo website this year. But, either way: it's time to think about whether you'll be participating! I will likely be holding weekly write-ins at the Cadott Library, and of course on our Discord channel (in addition to our every-other-Saturday schedule).

IF we are on the Camp NaNo site, Samma is willing to launch a cabin this year. If we are not, it will be NaNo business as usual with the Discord, forums, and of course on Facebook (minus the ML Radio silence).

I hope that the delay is worth it, and please accept my apologies for the fact that it's already the New Year.

The Packages for the Graveyard Contest winners WILL be sent out hopefully by the end of December. Some of the gifts were on back order and other things, so I hope to get them soon! :) Please be patient with me. I wanted to get something meaningful for each of you! :D

WINNERS OF THE GRAVEYARD CONTEST:

The contest was for the bodies dead in the month of November. There were three categories! Thank you for participating.

Congratulations to:

1. SIlcar - for the highest body count at 5 dead (in a flashback, but it counts)

2. IEGeth - Most Creative Death by Wine Glass. Wielded by a disgruntled noblewoman. You do NOT screw up her party.

3. L. Wojcik - for the closest thing to a Resurrection Death experience. Her antagonist crossed the spirit world to offer his literal heart to the woman he loved. While he did die, technically he was resurrected in the heart that still beats in her chest.

I will contact you via PM for your goodies!

...Aaaaand, it's all over! Be on the look out for a Wrap-Up mail (likely, Monday). Winners for the Most Words contest are still TBA (to allow syncing time on totals and any validation issues that may have cropped up).

Congrats to ALL of our participants, whether you won or not. You still accomplished something --and you can be proud of that.
