Welcome to the Lawrence, KS Regional Stats Page
This site is used specifically for the Lawrence, KS NaNoWriMo Region, and can:
- Generate a top-ten list of regional writers!
- Keep tabs on your rival!
- See where you rank in the region!
- Check out how much we've written as a region!
- Write a sprint!
- Play NaNoBingo!
You can use the site as much or as little as you want, according to your needs and interests. We've found that our region is very motivated by the stats, so we keep them up.
While NaNoWriMo is brings us together one month of the year, we as a regional try to welcome writers to stick together those other 11 months. Writers who are interested can stay engaged with us in the following places:
Our group uses Facebook to coordinate in-person and digital write-ins throughout the year, as well as share interesting posts and do self-promotion once a week. It's moderated by several users, and generally strives to be a chill spot.
Discord is how the group does digital write-ins for our members who can't make it out of the house to do their writing. Likewise, it offers a place to chat and hang with other writers in the region. It's busiest during NaNoWriMo, but we try to keep it moving year-round.
If you're unfamiliar with how Discord works and need a quick primer on getting started, Dianne has one written up here on Facebook.
About the Site
We generate daily statistics for our region using the non-public NaNoWriMo API. We get a list of the top ten word counts in our region, a list of who wrote the most words for the day, and who has already won. This information is posted on our group Discord and on the Lawrence, KS regional forums of the NaNoWriMo website.
This site is run on behalf of the region's municipal liasons (MLs) for National Novel Writing Month: Neil (Usoki) & Dianne (dianne_the_geek). It was created in September 2018 for the upcoming season by Ashes (scatteringashes).
