NaNoWriMo is about Art. It's about Inspiration. It's about the Triumph of the Human Spirit. It's about sitting in an indie cafe wearing a beret and a black turtleneck sweater and sipping on a double-caf moccaccino lite with a shot of raspberry and extra whipped cream while you write your magnum opus about were-octopi and the grammarians who love them. But most importantly, it's about the word count ticker.
1667words is about the struggle of wo/man vs. word count ticker. Here, we cheer one another's triumphs. Here, we trade tips and tricks for getting over the edge. Here, we pad and fluff shamelessly. Come join us, and take part in the great outpouring of questionable prose that is... NaNoWriMo 2006.
