Check out the results of the 2011 NaNoWriMo Poll!
Some really eye opening stuff, including one that goes hand in hand with Internation Women’s Day (it’s International Women’s Day, by the way, I’ll have something later on this). A huge 83% of all those who took part were women. It’s something I’ve known for quite some time, women are prolific writers.
Another good stat was the 30% of all writers were between 13 and 17 years old. Great news for up and coming writers, some of those kids will become published in the future. Next generation of authors, right there!
80% of all participants said they’d be back again for 2012, and I count myself among that stat.
