Marathon Wrap-up and Award!

Writing marathons, where would I be without them? Jen's marathon on the forum wrapped up today; without it I wouldn't have had a word written all week, between our trip to New York City to see Blue Rodeo (as the border guard asked, "what's a blue rodeo?") - where we met Jim Cuddy! - friends visiting from out of town, and family and friends hosting parties for my birthday.

But when Jen cracks that whip, you'd better get writing, and I did!

Is there a provision in NaNo for a notebook full of handwritten scenes? Perhaps I can scan them and add them to my total word count... Only one week left and I've got lots of overtime coming up at work in the next few days. Not to mention more bread to bake.
Hey look - I just found out, there's a Luddite clause!

"Invoke the Luddite Clause!
What you do is write your 50,000 words, then have someone you trust verify that it is, indeed, 50,000 words. Then using something like the Lorem Ipsum generator, submit a file of the exact number of words of your handwritten manuscript to our word count validator."

Who will vouch for me?

As for the award - Marsha's given me a Superior Scribbler Award! Thank you Marsha!
