NaNoWriMo Halo Giveaway Update

Soon 30 lucky Wrimo’s will have halos like this!

Alright, folks, it’s time to give away those NaNoWriMo halos!

Being a programmery-type I took all of the entries and ran them through a little script I wrote in python to randomize the list and give me a nicely formatted output. Since I tweaked the output several times, you might even say that I got to shuffle the deck a few times before picking the winners.

Before I give you the list, let me say that I haven’t checked all the Wrimo ids below as the NaNoWriMo site is currently sagging under the weight of everyone signing up and getting things together. So, I hope you all entered the right thing.

Also, I’d like to thank all 60 (!) people who entered the the giveaway. I wish I could grant halos to all of you, but alas my powers are limited. Best of luck to everyone as you make your way through the next 30 days!!!

Without further ado, the lucky winners appear below:

Doing NaNoWriMo this year? Buddy up with me!

P.S. For those of you who can, you really should donate. Getting your halo is only half the fun. 🙂

  1. Sweet! Thank you so much and congratulations to all other halo recipients! Over here there’s less than five hours to go before NaNo kicks off (and I think the Aussies have already started).

  2. Wow — it’s really almost here!

    I think your halo giveaway is the coolest thing ever. I’ll be donate a penny for every ten words I write each week, aiming to exceed a minimum of $12.50/week for a total of $50.

    Fingers crossed!

    Liz C´s last blog post..Call me crazy

  3. Thanks a lot! I’m currently looking for work, so I just couldn’t afford to donate right now. Thanks to you, I get to participate and receive my halo.

    Countdown begins for Nov. 1! It is going to be fun!

  4. Me with a halo sounds somewhat ODD.

    Must be because I joke so much about being a demonic monster that I’ve started believing it…

    Thank youuu!

  5. Thanks so much for the halo!! I think it’s great that you’re donating on behalf of so many.

    So, thank you thank you thank you again! Oh and thanks for friending me on livejournal!

  6. Thanks so much! One of my Wrimos was selected!! =) We’d like to send a thank you–not sure if you are keeping mementos, but would still like to do this. (Maybe you have a scrap-bookery type of special person in your life, or you are a scrapper/memento keeper??) Can you email it to me?

    How exciting! I’m not going to embarrass our Wrimo with any press or mention in emails–honestly I’ve not ever met him in real life yet–but still, this is exciting for the P-Town Wrimos and we appreciate your generosity.

  7. @Maija You’re very welcome. Enjoy getting a head start! 🙂

    @Liz I think your penny 10/words is pretty slick as well. 🙂 Best of luck this year!

    @Chris Best of luck this year, Chris. (In more than just NaNoWriMo.)

    @Kim It’s really going to be awesome! Hope you find work soon. We’ll try to keep you busy while you’re looking. 😉

    @Moondancer It was my pleasure. Best of luck!!!

    @Mousey I know what you mean. I thought I looked pretty weird with a halo too. LOL!

    @Sarah You’re so welcome. Best of luck this year!! 🙂

    @radioactivealchemist I’m happy to help out. Hope things get better soon. Good luck!

    @Hugh I agree, it’s time to get a’writin’! Best of luck!

    @Cheri You’re too kind. 🙂 Glad I could help out one of your fellow Wrimos. Good luck!

  8. Thank you oh so much!
    I think my new hallo might inspire me to win NaNo this year. I’m gonna start making a big pot of coffee – two more hours to go!

  9. Wow, I won! I can’t thank you enough; I’ve been doing NaNo for years, but I’m unemployed and unable to directly donate.

  10. Thank you so, so much! As your stereotypical poor student, I have no way to donate myself, even though I reallyreallyreally want to give something back to NaNo — so this means a great deal to me. Thank you!

  11. Thank you! You’re such a generous person, like everyone has said, its hard to believe there are people like you out there right now 🙂 I think I might want to do something like this, once I get a job.

    Congrats everyone! And its the first today, we can finally get those words out of out heads and write! Good luck, everyone!

  12. @messyhead My pleasure! Hope you had a great start!

    @Lara Glad I could help and best of luck in finding a new job.

    @Alice You’re quite welcome! Best of luck this year!

    @Wrio Thank you for the kind words. Hope you had a great session today!

  13. Oh my GOODNESS!! THANK YOU!!!
    This so gave my November a better start than I was expecting. Hooray!
    You mentioned in the email, a chance to guest blog, should we choose? Will you be emailing us about that? Or did I miss that somewhere? *worries*
    Happy Writing!! 😀

    buttergirlfly´s last blog post..beating the snot out of a random, smarmy saturday was no pansy task. you had to hit hard and fast and where no one would see you. was it a hate crime? or an act for society as a whole?

  14. @butterflygirl LOL! Hope to see a post from you and everyone else soon! p.s. that post in your sig has to be the longest blog title in history – 🙂

    @Amber Yep, I’m hoping to get quite a few. I have a couple already and they are really great.
