Dear God:

A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket. ~Charles Peguy

One more posting about November's National Novel Writing Month challenge...

The official results are in. Globally, 15,333 people completed the 50,000 word challenge by the November 30 deadline.

Other notable statistics:
- Official total worldwide wordcount: 1,187,931,929
- Top region: Seattle, WA with 16,757,473 total words - must be all that coffee and caffeine!

For this blessing, I am grateful.
