All of you contributed some great entries for the Halfway There giveaway; I think you should be writing the official NaNo site pep talks for the rest of the month (have you noticed how depressing some of these have been? Maybe I should send these folks some of PBW's patented chocolate-covered Valium.)
Anyway, tonight we revved up the magic hat, and the winner is:
LynnPenn, who wrote: When I hit a snag I grab a prompt and with the characters in mind I write my way back. Pandora in the background helps keep me moving. Stopping in the middle of a thought also helps. Writing down ideas for the next days work helps also. This is my third Nano. I have produced more stuff in these three Novembers than in my ten years of pursuing the craft.
Lynn, when you have a chance please send your full name and ship-to address to LynnViehl@aol.com so I can get this package on its way to you. My thanks to everyone for joining in.
