Yepp, if you go to www.nanowrimo.org, you will....not see the site! Instead, you'll see a nice little message from the Offices of Letters and Light, saying that the site is under matinence and will be back up "in a jiffy."
And why is this such a wonderful thing? Because it means that the 2009 NaNoWriMo website is being removed, the slate wiped clean for the 2010 version. Forums will be removed, author profiles cleared, and basically everything made ready for a fresh start.
And why is this so exciting? Because, for the thousands of us NaNo Geeks out there, it signifies that the wait is almost over! Soon, we can once more embark on our quest for 50,000 words.
If you haven't joined NaNoWriMo yet, now's the perfect time! As soon as the site's back up (tomorrowish, I hope - although I'll be checking again tonight after I get home from the football game, just in case) go to www.nanowrimo.org and click "sign up." You'll be opening the door to awesomeness.
