Yes moar people! Remember, this is not a race. If you finish, you win. Doesn't matter what order you all come in. If you're done before the end of November, you win Ramune, simple as that.

This is correct.

But 50,000 words is a lot! That's 1,667 words per day!

So I have my random dissociated novel notes, if anyone wants to look. The trick is to write them out on the iPod, so that they don't blossom into prose, thus invalidating the entire story.
Quote
Postmaster Jim Sherman fakes the mail because it's all he knows. What happens when he runs out of paper?

One last working radio that squaks random stuff in every now and then. It's neither words or music, though. Just loud noise.

A busted crop duster that can't fly over the mountain. Maybe if we can roll it down Main street while the preacher isn't looking?

One of the town's residents rigged up his  extensive solar panels a long time ago, and passed his house through the generations. He has a six-shooter with four bullets left, the other two having a history. He uses two shots to drop the massive irradiated bird. The others could be used on the preacher. This man's name is David Becker, and his wife is Mary.

Main character is a 52 year old male living in town for as long as he can remember, who through the actions of his kid, grows disenchanted with the system. How long ago did his wife pass away? His name is Scott Riley. His wife is Jessica, and his kid's name is Martin.

What happens when the medical supplies run out?

The preacher acts as the real mayor, and he legislates from the church. The preacher's name is The Reverend Samuel Alexander Ingram.

Possibly: near the end of the novel, there is a massive earthquake that destroys a mountain, allowing the inhabitants to see the outside world for themselves.

Because there are no bullets left in the village, a girl, Kelly, will be executed by the priest and his men for the shameful crime of sodomy by stoning. Bundled along with her is a boy rendered catatonic, one of the neighbor's kids, Jeffrey, about what he saw when he climbed the mountain. He is unable to speak of it.

The preacher blames both of them for the power outage caused when a massive cancerous looking bird destroys the solar panels.

There is absolutely nothing visible beyond the mountains. Everyone is boned at the end.

The name of the town is Bluejay.

Remember, you're not racing each other! Everyone has a chance to win!

You're racing against the inevitable: you're racing against the whole month of November! Will you write a novel before it dies? Or will it die and leave you novelless? Only you can decide!

This means I'll probably be handing out multiple boxes of Ramune. Or possibly just one. Or maybe even none. Depends on how many finish, really.
