In this episode, we talk about NaNoWriMo, 2021. Dean meets the woman of his dreams in a bookstore and lives happily ever after. Molly writes; she writes endlessly. Sarah grows frustrated, takes her humungous corkboard and leaves the show. And Yurick wins NaNoWriMo!
Hosted by Dean Karpowicz, with Molly Krasel, Yurick Makinen, and Sarah Willis.
