NaNoWriMo 2007 is officially over! Congrats to all of the participants around the world who made it past the 50,000 word mark before midnight last night. As for me, I crossed the finish line around 11:30pm. Now I'm trying to catch up on my reading from the past month. Here's a quick jolt of urbanism for all you lazy folks spending Sunday in bed with a laptop and a latte. Happy December, everybody!
