In an email from Chris Baty (the founder of National Novel Writing Month):
"Well, you rocked it this November. I hope your NaNo recovery process has been going smoothly, and that you're now knee-deep in celebrations that will prevent you from attending to any work tasks, school duties, or household chores for a long time. (Remember: NaNoWriMo winners do NOT do their own laundry. It sets a bad precedent.)
See? I'm just following orders.
