This is amazing! What a great contest. I admit I am floundering around 14K right now. I have been using the Scrivener Beta and having some problems ( missing text sort of problems). Was very frustrated last night and I needed some motivation today! Thanks LM :)
Wait...not writing a YA for this year's NaNo. Does that disqualify me?
