Welcome to MarqUWriMo--a month-long writing event open to all Marquette students, faculty, staff, alum AND members of the surrounding community. To participate, simply add your name, overall goal, and daily goals in the next available blank row. Your goal might be to write a NaNo novel! Or you might be a "NaNoRebel" with more academic goals, like writing some course papers, drafting a dissertation chapter, or finishing up a revise-and-resubmit. All goals--however ambitious or modest--are welcome. (A member of the MarqUWriMo staff will re-sort the entries at least once a day to make it easier to find your name in the list.) Then use this sheet to keep everyone posted on your progress throughout the month. We'll use your twitter and email (if you provide them) to keep you posted on any kick-off, write-in, or celebratory events. Happy writing, everyone!
