In November, Ball State English kicked off its first ever National Novel Writing Month competition amongst its faculty, students, friends, and alumni. Our writers warred against each other at weekly Monday Write-Ins, pushing their word counts higher than ever before. Weekly word champions were announced via Twitter.
Cumulatively, our 20 participants wrote a combined total of more than 350,000 words.
What about the overall winners? In our initial blog post, we stated that there would be two winners:
- the first to reach 50,000 words
- the person to write the most words overall
With NaNoWriMo officially over, we are pleased to announce those winners.
