Team Sport



Today we were to wear a jersey, etc. supporting our favorite team. I wore my NaNoWrMo shirt with the logo No Plot? No Problem.

Jr. High kids can sure be cute. One gullible youngster, eying my logo, and not getting it, asked, "Is that a team?"

"It's a team of writers."

Still confused, he said, "I never heard of them."

"Well, my team probably has more members world-wide than all the other teams combined."

When I looked it up, I found "In 2004, we had over 42,000 participants. Nearly 6000 of them crossed the 50k finish line by the midnight deadline, entering into the annals of NaNoWriMo superstardom forever." I was erroneously crediting us with only 30,000. I stand corrected.
