MoD: Sorry you didn't make it.  What was your final word count?  As for the writing group, yes, we do have another slot.  We've offered it to Fell, but I'm not sure if he's interested or not.  If he passes, then I wouldn't object to your coming.  However, I can't speak for the entire group--I'd have to ask them.

Despite the constant badgering by EUOL and Morag, I simply don't have the time or the will to go to SLC every saturday night for a writing group. If we can work out something in Provo or online then hooray, but the slot in the SLC group remains open.

16.4k. Very dismal indeed. However, despite that I still maintain that it was a very good thing to do.

Go ahead and ask them EUOL, though I'm not going to be offended if they say no. I should ask my husband too and find out what he thinks.

There's a place on the NaNo message board where you can post your novel description in 25 words or less. This is by far my favorite:

Goth guy falls for the angel of death, moves into a haunted house, finds out he’s the one haunting it. Everybody dies, including the rabbit.
