I stumbled upon NaNo in 2004 and was thrilled and excited to find a site which offered to write and also offered help to make it. In 2004 it was not as advanced as it is today but still pep-talks where send and did just show what I felt throught that month of full.time job and writing. The following years I sort of forgot about it, even though I finished my novel and feklt - great. In 2011 I remembered and looked if it was still there. And was happy to find it alive and kicking. THese days the staff manages to answer personal emails and soon and well, besides the pep-talks the videos are just inspiring, funny to look at and well, the new addition of Camp NaNo during the summer months, the always growing possibilities and - I call 'em gadgets make it so much more than just ' a board'. It's become part of my daily life, especially due to some people I met there whom I chat and write with on a daily basis, sharing our works, life and a huge mountain of virtual muffins - and bathtubs of coffee. Without the effort of the staff and all those other people behind the scenes it wouldn't have happend - and I would miss something without even knowing it could exist. So, I do hope, naNo continues to thrive and to inspire lots of people to write and meet and - enjoy their creativity. Best regards, tontaube
