Note: This is a modified version of the newsletter update that will be sent via email sometime during the last week of May.

As 2014 rolls along and July approaches, a reflection on last year's July Novel Writing Month is long overdue. We had a total of 148 participants, of which 53 wrote over 50,000 words. Awesome! Our total word count for the month was 4,635,443. Can we beat that this year?

The forum is now all set for 2014, and we'll continue to get ready for this upcoming July over the next few weeks. I'd like to apologize for not having been as actively involved in the competition as I have been in previous years. A 2,500 mile move across the country kept me fairly busy all of last summer. I look forward to this July, where life will hopefully be less hectic.

If you'd like to help out this summer, I would greatly appreciate it! Please email us if you are interested in helping to moderate the forums or if you would like to contribute any avatars, word prompts, pep talks, etc.

I thought it would also be interesting to highlight some works of fiction that our very own JulNoWriMo participants have had published. Please be sure to check them out when deciding what to read this year. Let me know if you also have been published as a result in participating in a WriMo, and I'll highlight more in a future update.
