Record as in speak the story?

If I were talking, I could do a million a month, but it would not be a book worth reading. Or several books worth reading, for that matter. LOL.

I've seen regions like the Maryland one, and the problem becomes that quite often everyone in your Region has to feel as though they are doing X amount of work to contribute to the whole or else they aren't helping. I saw this happen in a couple regions, by the way. People dropped out because they couldn't keep up with the MLs saying you need to do X number of words today for us to keep our place.

Fine if that's what you want to join in and do, but I think it's pushing the entirely wrong agenda for many people and making the NaNo experience far less fun for them. Then, when they don't make the count, they not only feel as though they failed themselves, but they failed others. No, not much fun at all.

This is the kind of thing I'm talking about, in fact -- getting caught up in something outside of what you can do for yourself. It's fun if you are sure of yourself and your abilities, but when you're new to NaNo, this can absolutely ruin the experience. And, unfortunately, some people assume that if they don't enjoy NaNo, they're not going to be writers.
RAVENTOWER & MERRIWEATHER 1: SECRETS

Lord Micalus Raventower is a genius at creating clockwork creatures and tinkering with steampunk engines, but that doesn’t explain why Atiran assassins are suddenly intent on killing him. Lt. Merriweather is assigned to protect the eccentric young lord, and she soon learns there may be good reasons for the Atrians to want Lord Raventower dead.
