Karen's in Ireland right now, so I'm flying solo...
As I write, we have 264 Wrimos with their NaNo-home in Edinburgh and more than half are new to NaNoWriMo - welcome, all of you! A grand total of 636 are following what's going on in our forums, too. (This is a bit more than Newcastle and a bit less than Glasgow, if that helps you put it in perspective).
We've also got a kind mention in The Edinburgh Reporter. I hope everyone's getting a buzz of anticipation for NaNo - the time for plotting, planning and stocking up on chocolate/caffeine/obscure pop-culture references is almost at an end...
Hope to see you at the Kick-Off; failing that, come along to a write-in!
