Photos from the Carol Stream and Woodridge Public Library write-ins yesterday are now available. Thanks very much to Sarah Kovacs (SarahK06) and Catherine Brennan (Cee-Bee) for organizing and hosting these write-ins.

Using a google docs spreadsheet to track the word wars and box of doom writing sprints in Woodridge, I see that the fourteen participants averaged over 2900 words written over the three hours of the write-in (note: still awaiting final stats from one participant; and another didn't record their output in the spreadsheet, so the average is actually higher). Several nanobots and nanobot-themed victory cards were won by the participants; and there was even a wrimorock given out as a prize.

Sarah gave out three itunes gift cards in Carol Stream's write-in (to Squiddish, Corrupted Flame and KatherineWriting).

Eight of us went out to lunch at Hot Dog Palace in Carol Stream (fun!).

I'll update this post soon with the list of participants.
