Yes, I've done it every year since like 2011 or 2012.
I rarely make the 50,000 words, as I prefer to write slower and turn out content I can actually stand to re-read. The few times I've pushed myself to 50,000 I ended up just incredibly embarrassed those words had been typed by my hands haha!
But I still enjoy doing it because I'm part of a wonderful writer's group and it's always fun to do something like this together I write regularly outside of WriMo as I have to update my series on here lmao, but sometimes when I'm in a really bad funk, doing WriMo can help break me out of that.
But I think you're right, with people social distancing, I'm sure we'll see record numbers of writers! 87 copies of War and Peace, here we come.
