1,465,236 total words written
The official NaNo site seems to have either done away with or hidden the regional word counts so we unfortunately can't tell which areas of the world we out-wrote... but I'm sure there were some surprising ones we beat!
I'm proud to report that the Write-A-Thon's final take this year was:
What this means:
Each 10% beneficiary of the activity will receive approximately 500,000 GPs!
Members of the winning Green Team will each receive approximately 85,000 GPs!
Distribution of any remaining prizes will take place shortly. If you haven't received all of your prizes by December 15th, please feel free to follow up with me directly.
Thank you to everyone who made the "NaNoWriMo Write-A-Thon" possible this year. We wouldn't be able to do this without generous sponsors, competitive writers, and the support and encouragement of other members of the site. It's amazing to see what this community can accomplish when we band together and work toward a common goal. Thanks for everything, and I'll see you all next year!
