NaNoWriMo and CampNaNo Official Sponsor

Hi WriMos,

I'm Steve Shepard, the developer of Storyist. One of the remarkable things about NaNoWriMo is that it doesn't cost anything to take part. The Office of Letters and Light, the non-profit organization that runs the event, covers its costs through donations and sponsorships. And that is where we can help. I'm proud to announce that Storyist Software is an Official Sponsor of NaNoWriMo again this year.

Since the November camp is fast approaching, and, like many writers, you're probably trying to decide what software you're going to use this year, I've put together some information about why you should consider Storyist. Feel free to ask questions in the Storyist thread in the NaNoWriMo forums or in the Storyist Forums. And good luck with your novels!

-Steve
