1,520,717,240 and counting

That’s the total, collective word count logged to date during National Novel Writing Month, which runs today through November 30.

For those who haven’t heard of NaNoWriMo, it’s a writing marathon in which new and established authors attempt to compose an entire novel in 30 days. Sound crazy? Ask Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus, who has participated for seven years. (Check the Evergreen and eIndiana catalogs for availability of Morgenstern's best selling, debut novel about dueling magicians.) For more information, discussion forums, and pep talks visit NaNoWriMo.

And to all who are participating in this year's challenge: "Good luck and keep writing!"
