Hello all! As you've probably guessed by the title of the journal and the Community Relations journal skin, this is the monthly update from the literature community volunteers.
It's National Novel Writing Month again! It's a great time to share your NaNo experiences, whether it's you're first time or you're a 10 year veteran. Do you usually participate? Do you complete your goals? Do you struggle, or is this a cake walk? And, do you have secret tricks for crossing the finish line?
Most importantly, I'd like to discuss if you think NaNoWriMo is worth the effort. Do you feel accomplished after 50,000 words? Do you lament the sacrifices necessary to complete your goal?
So tell us all about your experiences, and if NaNo is worth the effort to you!
Farewell and New!
In the CR team, we said goodbye to `UnicornReality. Please thank them for all their hard work.
There have also been some welcome additions to the team! Please give your support and welcome to the following new volunteers:

October was a spooky good time with wonderful contests and events! Now it's November. NaNoWriMo, Thanksgiving, and even Christmas preparation are upon us. We're seeing the NaNo groups hitting their stride, the chat schedules are busy, and hopefully NaNo-ers are doing well. (If not, stop procrastinating with this article and meet your quota. ) For those not participating in NaNo I hope you're enjoying the alternative activities, there are quite a few going around.
