Did you know that you can create an account and contribute to Wikiwrimo?
Welcome to Wikiwrimo! I'm your friendly Wikiwrimo founder and admin, meaning that I welcome you to Wikiwrimo, answer any questions you have, and maintain the technical side of the site. Ask me any questions you have, whether through my talk page, through the question board, or through email. For answers to some commonly asked questions, check out the help area and the FAQ. You may also want to check out the guide to editing for more editing resources.
If you have any questions about Wikiwrimo that need to be handled privately, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to contact me outside of a Wikiwrimo context, try email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Both addresses go to the same place.
I'm also available if you'd like to talk about preserving online communities and histories or open cultures, doubly so since my real job is in open culture and software. I can also talk your head off about NaNoWriMo, though I'm not a staff member and can't give you any super-official answers to anything.

NaNo, Script Frenzy, and Sushi
I've participated in NaNoWriMo since 2002. Back when I used Diaryland (yes, Diaryland) as my primary blog, I was blog-hopping one night, and someone wrote about this crazy thing called National Novel Writing Month. It did sound crazy, especially since I had already started writing a novel at the time but crashed and burned a few chapters in. Could I really call myself a writer if I couldn't finish a novel?
So I signed up. Little did I know that life would change forever. I've won every NaNo and Script Frenzy since. Not so much with Camp NaNo, though.
Fun Sushi and NaNo fact: In 2010 my question "How much yarn does it take to knit a sweater for a giraffe?" was chosen as a question for the Reference Desk forum description. Answer: A lot! It turns out that someone has actually done this.
Other fun Sushi and NaNo fact: I went to the Night of Writing Dangerously in 2011. It was life-changing. You should go.
Other other fact: I miss my four-digit userid.
The Non-Wikiwrimo Sushi
I fangirled my way into my real job (community manager/everything but code and design). Non-writing interests include math [particularly abstract algebra and group theory], languages [particularly French], computers and code and Linux-y type things, online media and community, tea, books, notebooks, data ownership and portability, good food, and cute animals.
