Welcome to Barney Moosey Town

By now, you've undoubtedly heard of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) or have participated in the madness yourself. Every November, thousands of writers around the world try to pound out at least 50,000 words in 30 days. Sure, they end up cutting out loads of it during the revision phase, but at least they have a first draft to work with, right?

For some, however, 50K in 30 days isn't enough of a challenge. Heck, even all the writing, revising, editing, polishing, researching, and submitting required for Write1Sub1 wouldn't do it for them.

Here's a fellow writer who decided to draft a novel in 15 consecutive hours. And thanks to the wonder of YouTube, we get to join him during his final glorious minute...
