National Novel Writing Month pariticipants in several localities are competing against each other for most words written gross, and most words written per person. These are called Word Wars.

Don’ t tell anyone, but at least one St. Louis participant hasn’t updated their word count online since the first night, and that’s not because they haven’t written anything since. So the St. Louis per-person average is a little lower than actuality. Of course, this could be true in the other localities as well.
