#UPDATE: January 6, 2021:
To all of you who are sending me video clips this morning and asking "Is this your family?"...


To answer your questions...


* Yes... my relatives ARE on every news station in every country of the world today, yes they did ORGANIZE the attack on the Capitol Building... and I am horrified by it.


* No, before you guys sent me the video footage clips, I was unaware the attack had happened, I do not own a TV and do not seek out news reports on the internet, so had you not sent me those clips I would never have known the attack had happened at all


* Yes, many members of my extended-family were involved in organizing the attack on Washington D.C.; one of my aunts claims to be the organizer, she is now wanted by the FBI for questioning


* Yes, I can see 1 uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 1st cousins in those pictures and news reports.


* Yes, the shooter is the high priest cousin you saw posting gun photos and death threats on my FaceBook, Twitter, and Twitch chat


* Yes, that is the 2 cousins who founded the group "The Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan More Loyal Than The Loyal White Knights", in the gif/memes trashing reporter cameras and jumping on said cameras 


* YES, that IS the uncle who was paying the Discord tittie streamer $500 a month to stage the "deserve to be raped raids" on my Twitch channel 


* Yes, that uncle, 2 aunts, and 23 cousins ARE all members of Heaven's Gate and were party to the original UFO cult kool-aid murder suicide that killed 39 people in 1997


* No, I do not support anything they do or have done; it's been more than 30 years since I last saw, talked to, or interacted with any of them


#And please, stop forwarding video footage and news reports to me. I want nothing to do with those jackasses. We share DNA, not ideologies. They absolutely disgust me.


* If you were there, please be aware that 4 of them are now bragging on their social medias that they currently have Covid-19 and that they were spitting on police and government officials during the attack on the Capitol Building; yes it is confirmed they DO actually have Covid-19... 9 members of their immediate family have died in the past month and is what instigated them to join the mob at D.C.


* Yes, all of them are wanted by the FBI... if you have any information about ANY of their crimes INCLUDING today's attack on Washington D.C., do NOT send it to me, send it to the FBI agent in charge of the case: 


#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the investigation. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322


This whole thing is very distressing for me. I do not like the kind of attention that gets put on ME because I happen to be related to THEM.

Far too many people harass my family, online and offline, because of these dipshits in our rather distant family tree.

I prefer to stay out of the public eye and deeply dislike being pulled into the paparazzi spotlight every time this group of lunatics pulls one of these ridiculous terrorist attack stunts.


It was very distressing for me to wake up this morning to find email, and every contact method on every social media, packs full of thousands of questions, links, and forwards, all asking me if that was my family that was being plastered across every news station on the planet.


It was bad enough to learn a terrorist attack had happened and it was even worse to learn it was yet again my uncles behind it.


Though I can not say I'm surprised to learn these jackass dipshits I have to share DNA with were involved. This certainly isn't the first terrorist attack they took part in.


Considering this 1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins, all who took part in Heaven's Gate murder of 39 people in 1997, 1 of whom built the bomb for 2013's Boston Marathon, and 2 of whom founded the Loyalist White Knights... were involved in this attack too... I hope they get life in prison, they fucking deserve it.

.......

#UPDATE: January 9, 2020....


Good news, one of them was just arrested in Florida. He's the guy all over Twitter today, waving to security cameras while stealing Nancy Pelosi's lecture pedestal. My relatives are insane. I hope he never gets out.


At least he can't post death threats and rape threats in my Twitch chat anymore. I hope they arrest them all.


Why do I have to share DNA with these psychotic lunatics?


You can support your political party without being a violent, crazed, psychopathic terroist, you know.


#And random thought...


You know... all the people saying Trump supporters should stop inciting violence and go read their Bible, clearly have never read the Bible and have no clue how much violence and genocide God commands in the Old Testament... shouldn't it be the Trumpies need LESS Bible influence? Isn't it the Bible that inspired them to be violent in the first place?


And you want to know something else...


26 of those people now arrested for attacking the Capitol, had ALREADY been reported, in October 2019, for planning an attack on the government...

I know beause I filed that report on 3 uncles, 2 auns, and 23 cousins when they started building bombs and bought 4,000 asult rifles, while claiming they were building an army.

This attack was a long time in the planning and couldhave been prevented and the FBI knew about it 2 years ago.


But hey... guess what... the FBI knew about the Heaven's Gate murder 8 MONTHS before those same 26 people murdered 39 people under the shadow of Hale-Bop... AND the FBI knew in 2012, 5 months ahead of time that these same 26 people were building bombs for the Boston Marathon.


Same 26 people over and over again. This time some of them actually got caught... but the Heaven's Gate crew, has 4,000 members in Maine, Florida, Mississippi, Wyomin, Colorado, and Nova Scotia.


They are gaining members all the time. They claim they are building God's army, they claim Trump is "the God-King" God's form on earth, they also believe he is a shapeshifting reptilian alien, and they claim to be waiting for a mothership that will fly in the shadow of Comet Wormwood.


They claim "when the Trump of jubilie sounds" they will be ready to kill all who oppose them, because they believe they are God's Army and they do not fear death, for they also believe that through death, they "will be changed in the twinkling of an eye" and transformed into mighty arch angels to enact vengange of all who oppose them.


They embrace death, to the point, like they did in 1997, they will kill themselves if they have to, and take everyone around them with them.


Heaven's Gate should be feared and they should be in prison, not building gallows on the front law of the Capitaol building while trying to hang the Vice President.


How many decades will Heaven's Gate's members be allowed to kill and main unbridled? They are terrorists and NEED to be arrested and put in prison, BEFORE they do what they are planning and unleash a bomb that will kill every one "East of the Mississippi" as they put it.


My uncle David is dangerous, and now with his brother Bruce, leader of Heaven's Gate since 1997, dead from Covid19, David's crew has become far more dangerous than they ever were.


This attack they staged on the Capitol, it's not the end, it was just them firing a warning shot of something far bigger yet to come.


They need to be stopped BEFORE they kill more people.


How many times will this same group be allowed to kill over and over again, before someone stops them?


.......


1 uncle, 2 aunts, & 23 cousins were there; they are the leaders of Heaven's Gate AND the Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; they have 4,000 members armed with assault rifles, ready to march on command, and that's JUST the group in Palmyra, Maine - they NEED to be stopped... this post they made on Twitter is NOT a joke... they WILL march Jan 19... they MUST be stopped... Jan 6 was just a warning shot

UPDATE: January 14, 2021
I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...

I received a deeply troubling question today... let's answer it...


................


*if someone asks me to do something in exchange for a donation...? I stream, and today someone I've never seen before sent me a message on discord asking me if I want [insert ridiculous amount of money here]. I of course replied asking what for, and the guy replies saying 'complete 25 challenges, for example #1 would be pulling a funny face. If you complete all 25 challenges then I donate the money.' Oh, and he also sent me screenshots of what I assume is supposed to be proof that he's dono'd tons of money to others before. This seems sus AF to me. Should I just assume it's fake / he'll ask me to do something weird? What do?*


................


You've heard of the recent attacks on the American Capitol, right?

Have you NOT also heard about the 26 Twitch streamers who have found their name's on the FBI's no fly list even though they live in Europe and have never been to America?

Have you looked at today's day January 14 vs the date of the next 2 planned attacks, January 17 and January 20?

I doubt you'd ask this question if you HAD heard of what happened, so let me me summarize:

A group of terrorists spent several months planning an attack on Washington D.C. They took to intermingling with election rallies, so no one would suspect them. 

Meanwhile, online, they sought out a way to make 26 fake IDs for their group to use on attack day (January 6).

They ended up contacting 26 Twitch streamers the genders and approximate ages of the 26 people they had in their group going to D.C. 

Each streamer was sent an offer for being donated $500 in exchange for doing things. The streamers thought it seemed innocent enough and was easy money, so did it.

The reason for the $500 amount, was PayPal requires additional verification on large amounts, meaning, they were given the REAL NAMES AND HOME ADDRESSES of those 26 streamers. They next took those names and made 26 fake IDs using the names and addresses of those 26 streamers.

They used those fake IDs January 6 at D.C. and now as of Jan 7, those 26 streamers found their names on the FBI's no-fly list.

Those 26 terrorists, tossed the fake IDs and used their real IDs to leave D.C. and made their way back to Florida, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, successfully returning home, while hundreds of other rally attendants found themselves unable to get on planes.

Given what those 26 did just before Jan 6, I would question anyone asking something similar to any streamer, right now, this close to Jan 17.

I highly recommend you report them to the FBI as possibly connected to the Jan 17 attack. **[https://tips.fbi.gov/](https://tips.fbi.gov/)**

The 26 people in question by the way... my uncle David, his wife Luci, his sister Barbie Jean, and 23 of their children, grandchildren, and great grand children... only one of whom so far has been arrested... the one who stole Nancy Pelosi's pulpit. On their way home to Palmyra, the rest showed up in my driveway January 11, to chant "All hail God King Trump" while bragging how they didn't get caught and outwitted the FBI and are going back to D.C. on Jan 17 and Jan 20.

Chances are VERY HIGH that the man contacting you was David's son Shem, who is the one who contacted the others prior to the Jan 6 attack, or so he bragged on Jan 11, while shooting off his rifils in my driveway, from a red 1980s vintage Jeep Cherokee.

Beware of the Atwaters, the Halls, the Cyrs, and the Johnsons... they ain't sending you money unless they are planning on using you to take the fall for some crime they plan to commit and blame on you. You'll go to jail and they'll walk free, like they always do, like they've been doing since the 1950s.

..UPDATE: January 14, 2021...
..............................
...MODS TAKE NOTICE!...
.................................
...NEW BAN RULES ADDED TO THE CHANNEL... ..............................
...From today forward ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight...
..............................
...I do not want any member of the 4Chan, 7Chan, Anon, QAnon or any similar terrorist organizations near my channel...
.............................. 
...BAN THEM ALL!...

#As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATELY BAN** anyone and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.

I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#I do not want any member of this terrorist organization near my channel.

#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.

#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.

The "Chan" movement... OMG! They are fucking psychotic extremists. I had no clue what "Chan" meant or why people put it at the end of their username. Knowing what I know now and looking at the fact that the ringleader behind the 3 year long attack on my Twitch channel has the word "Chan" at the end of her username, the wild sex rumors she spreads about me FINALLY make sense.

Today one of my mods sent me the following message:

*"I noticed the girl trying to cancel you has "Chan" at the end of her username, as do many of her followers. I also noticed your confusion over her attacks and I wonder, do you know what "chan" means or why streamers put it at the end of their username? Everyone who has "Chan" at the end of their username is a witch hunting channel, it is how they identify themselves. It means they are extremist radical trolls from 4chan. There is even a wiki devoted to the "Chan Movement". Here, you'll want to read this. **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4chan)** and this **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Chanology)**Twitter has started to ban anyone using "chan" at the end of their username because is identifies the user as connected with white supremacy hate groups. She's a QAnon terrorist and proud of it, that's why she has "chan" at the end of her name. That's why she is working with your uncles. She helped them plan the attack on the Capitol. She's a QAnon member. That's why she has the word "chan" at the end of her username. Every QAnon member does that. I didn't realize you had never heard of QAnon or 4Chan until I saw your Tweet last night. I'm s sorry. I thought you knew that is what she was. I would have messaged you sooner about this if I had known you didn't know what QAnon was. Also "Thingy" is a slang word, it means "a child's vagina" people put that in their username to signify they are supporters of child rape. These are really bad people attacking your channel. They are the same people who just attacked America's Capital. When they are chanting "ThingyChan" in your chat, it's a QAnon secret code word, it's another word for rape, it's a rape threat, it's them bypassing the NightBot ban of the word rape. It means they are threatening to gather up 4Chan members to rape you. 4Chan QAnon's use secret code words to bypass chat bans because they know most people don't know what the code words mean. It's like a Morse Code that only they know."*


Here is what the Wiki has to say:

>>>>*"4chan is an anonymous English-language imageboard website. Launched by Christopher "moot" Poole in October 2003, the site hosts boards dedicated to a wide variety of topics, from anime and manga to video games, music, literature, fitness, politics, and sports, among others. Registration is not available and users typically post anonymously; posting is ephemeral, as threads receiving recent replies are "bumped" to the top of their respective board and old threads are deleted as new ones are created. As of November 2020, 4chan receives more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, with more than 900,000 posts made daily."*

.

.

>>>>*"The site has been described as a hub of Internet subculture, with its community being influential in the formation of prominent Internet memes, such as lolcats, Rickrolling, and rage comics, as well as hacktivist and political movements, such as Anonymous and the alt-right. 4chan has often been the subject of media attention as a source of controversies, including the coordination of pranks and harassment against websites and Internet users, and the posting of illegal and offensive content. The Guardian once summarized the 4chan community as "lunatic, juvenile ... brilliant, ridiculous and alarming""*

.

.

>>>>*"Before the end of 2003, several new anime-related boards were added, including /h/ (Hentai), /c/ (Anime/Cute), /d/ (Hentai/Alternative), /w/ (Wallpapers/Anime), /y/ (Yaoi), and /a/ (Anime). Additionally, a lolicon board was created at /l/ (Lolikon),[26] but was disabled following the posting of genuine child pornography and ultimately deleted in October 2004, after threats of legal action."*

.

.

>>>>*"On November 17, 2018, it was announced that the site would be split into two, with the work-safe boards moved to a new domain, 4channel.org, while the NSFW boards would remain on the 4chan.org domain. In a series of posts on the topic, Nishimura explained that the split was due to 4chan being blacklisted by most advertising companies, and that the new 4channel domain would allow for the site to receive advertisements by mainstream ad providers."*

.

.

>>>>*"/pol/ ("Politically Incorrect") is 4chan's political discussion board. A stickied thread on its front page states that the board's intended purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics." /pol/ was created in October 2011 as a rebranding of 4chan's news board, /new/, which was deleted that January for a high volume of racist discussion."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although there had previously been a strong left-libertarian contingent to 4chan activists, there was a gradual rightward turn on 4chan's politics board in the early-mid 2010s. The board quickly attracted posters with a political persuasion that later would be described with a new term, the alt-right. Media sources have characterized /pol/ as predominantly racist and sexist, with many of its posts taking an explicitly neo-Nazi bent. The Southern Poverty Law Center regards /pol/'s rhetorical style as widely emulated by white supremacist websites such as The Daily Stormer; the Stormer's editor, Andrew Anglin, concurred. /pol/ was where screenshots of Trayvon Martin's hacked social media accounts were initially posted. The board's users have started antifeminist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Arab Twitter campaigns."*

.

.

>>>>*"The users of /r9k/ built upon by then popular 4chan memes "epic win" and "fail" to group the human population into "alphas" or stereotypical well-adjusted popular people and "betas" or stereotypical geek-ish social rejects, self-identifying with the latter. It became a popular gathering place for the controversial online incel community. The "beta uprising" or "beta rebellion" meme, the idea of taking revenge against women, jocks and others perceived as the cause of incels' problems, was popularized on the sub-section. It gained more traction on the forum following the Umpqua Community College shooting, where it is believed that the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, also warned people not to go to school in the Northwest hours prior to the shooting as users encouraged him. The perpetrator of the Toronto van attack referenced 4chan and an incel rebellion in a Facebook post he made prior to the attack while praising self-identified incel Elliot Rodger, the killer behind the 2014 Isla Vista killings. He claims to have talked with both Harper-Mercer and Rodger on Reddit and 4chan and believes that he was part of a "beta uprising", also posting a message on 4chan about his intention the day before his attack."*

.

.

>>>>*"Anonymous originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain. Anonymous members (known as Anons or QAnons) can be distinguished in public by the wearing of Guy Fawkes masks in the style portrayed in the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta. However, this may not always be the case as some of the collective prefer to instead cover their face without using the well-known mask as a disguise. Some anons also opt to mask their voices through voice changers or text-to-speech programs."*

.

.

>>>>*"On January 19, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice shut down the file-sharing site Megaupload on allegations of copyright infringement. Anons responded with a wave of DDoS attacks on U.S. government and copyright organizations, shutting down the sites for the RIAA, MPAA, Broadcast Music, Inc., and the FBI."*

.

.

>>>>*"In the wake of the fatal police shooting of unarmed African-American Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, "Operation Ferguson"—a hacktivist organization that claimed to be associated with Anonymous—organized cyberprotests against police, setting up a website and a Twitter account to do so. The group promised that if any protesters were harassed or harmed, they would attack the city's servers and computers, taking them offline. City officials said that e-mail systems were targeted and phones died, while the Internet crashed at the City Hall."*

.

.

>>>>*"In March 2016, Anonymous was reported to have declared war on Donald Trump. However, the "Anonymous Official" YouTube channel released a video denouncing #OpTrump as an operation that "goes against everything Anonymous stands for" in reference to censorship and added "we are for everyone letting their voices be heard, even, if the person at hand ... is a monster.""*

.

.

>>>>*"In late 2017, QAnon, a pro-Trump group claiming to be the "real" Anonymous, first emerged on 4chan. In response, anti-Trump members of Anonymous warned that QAnon was stealing the collective's branding."*

.

.

>>>>*"Since 2009, dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the U.S., UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Anons generally protest these prosecutions and describe these individuals as martyrs to the movement. The July 2011 arrest of LulzSec member Topiary became a particular rallying point, leading to a widespread "Free Topiary" movement."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal. QAnon also commonly asserts that Trump is planning a day of reckoning known as the "Storm", when thousands of members of the cabal will be arrested. The conspiracy claim is entirely fictitious. QAnon supporters have accused many liberal Hollywood actors, Democratic politicians, and high-ranking government officials of being members of the cabal. They have also claimed that Trump feigned conspiracy with Russians to enlist Robert Mueller to join him in exposing the sex trafficking ring and preventing a coup d'état by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros. The QAnon conspiracy theories have been amplified by Russian state-backed troll accounts on social media, as well as Russian state-backed traditional media."*

.

.

>>>>*"Although preceded by similar viral conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate,[23][24] which has since become part of QAnon, the conspiracy theory began with an October 2017 post on the anonymous imageboard 4chan by "Q", who was presumably an American individual;[25] it is now more likely that "Q" has become a group of people acting under the same name. A stylometric analysis of Q posts claims to have uncovered that at least two people wrote as "Q" in different periods. Q claimed to be a high-level government official with Q clearance, who has access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States. NBC News reported that three people took the original Q post and spread it across multiple media platforms to build an Internet following for profit. QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon. Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

.

.

>>>>*"QAnon adherents began appearing at Trump reelection campaign rallies in August 2018. Bill Mitchell, a broadcaster who has promoted QAnon, attended a White House "social media summit" in July 2019. QAnon believers commonly tag their social media posts with the hashtag #WWG1WGA, signifying the motto "Where We Go One, We Go All". At an August 2019 rally, a man warming up the crowd used the QAnon motto, later denying that it was a QAnon reference. This occurred hours after the FBI published a report calling QAnon a potential source of domestic terrorism—the first time the agency had so rated a fringe conspiracy theory. According to analysis by Media Matters for America, as of October 2020, Trump had amplified QAnon messaging at least 265 times by retweeting or mentioning 152 Twitter accounts affiliated with QAnon, sometimes multiple times a day. QAnon followers came to refer to Trump as "Q+""*

.

.

>>>>*"The number of QAnon adherents is unclear as of October 2020, but the group maintains a large online following. In June 2020, Q exhorted followers to take a "digital soldiers oath", and many did, using the Twitter hashtag #TakeTheOath.[42] In July 2020, Twitter banned thousands of QAnon-affiliated accounts and changed its algorithms to reduce the conspiracy theory's spread.[43] A Facebook internal analysis reported in August found millions of followers across thousands of groups and pages; Facebook acted later that month to remove and restrict QAnon activity,[44][45] and in October it said it would ban the conspiracy theory from its platform altogether. Followers had also migrated to dedicated message boards such as EndChan and 8chan (now rebranded as "8kun"), where they organized to wage information warfare in an attempt to influence the 2020 United States presidential election.[47] Following Trump's loss to Joe Biden in the election, QAnon beliefs became a part of attempts to overturn the results and Trump's loss, culminating in the storming of the United States Capitol, leading to a further crackdown on QAnon-affiliated content on social media."*

.

.


>>>>*"Anonymous is a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement that is widely known for its various cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions and government agencies, corporations, and the Church of Scientology."*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology (also called Operation Chanology) was a protest movement against the practices of the Church of Scientology by members of Anonymous, a leaderless Internet-based group. The project was started in response to the Church of Scientology's attempts to remove material from a highly publicized interview with Scientologist Tom Cruise from the Internet in January 2008."*

.

.

>>>>*"The project was publicly launched in the form of a video posted to YouTube, "Message to Scientology", on January 21, 2008. The video states that Anonymous views Scientology's actions as Internet censorship, and asserts the group's intent to "expel the church from the Internet". This was followed by distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), and soon after, black faxes, prank calls, and other measures intended to disrupt the Church of Scientology's operations. In February 2008, the focus of the protest shifted to legal methods, including nonviolent protests and an attempt to get the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Church of Scientology's tax-exempt status in the United States."*

.

.

>>>>*"Reactions from the Church of Scientology regarding the protesters' actions have varied. Initially, one spokesperson stated that members of the group "have got some wrong information" about Scientology. Another referred to the group as a group of "computer geeks". Later, the Church of Scientology started referring to Anonymous as "cyberterrorists" perpetrating "religious hate crimes" against the church."*

.

.

>>>>*"Members of Project Chanology say their main goal is "to enlighten the Church of Scientology (CoS) by any means necessary.""*

.

.

>>>>*"Project Chanology began its campaign by organizing and delivering a series of denial-of-service attacks against Scientology websites and flooding Scientology centers with prank calls and black faxes. The group was successful in taking down local and global Scientology websites intermittently from January 18, 2008 until at least January 25, 2008."*

Guy Fawkes was an English Catholic executed for a 1605 attempt to destroy the House of Lords. In V for Vendetta, a rebel against a near-future fascist regime uses the mask in his public appearances and distributes many of its copies to the population to enable mass protests."*

In response, Turner sued 4chan, 7chan, and other websites; however, he lost his plea for an injunction and failed to receive letters from the court."*

Miang claimed that the report "seems to confuse /b/ raids and motivational poster templates with a genuine threat to the American public", arguing that the "unrelated" footage of a van exploding shown in the report was to "equate anonymous posting with domestic terror"."*

A later post said: "Check the news for Port Orchard, Washington, in a few hours. Her son will be home from school soon. He'll find her, then call the cops. I just wanted to share the pics before they find me." The victim was Amber Lynn Coplin, aged 30. The suspect, 33-year-old David Michael Kalac, surrendered to police in Oregon later the same day; he was charged with second-degree murder involving domestic violence. Kalac was convicted in April 2017 and was sentenced to 82 years in prison the following month."*

The suspect took pictures of the victim's bloodied deceased body and posted it to Discord and his own Instagram page. The photos were widely shared on Instagram and other sites, particularly on 4chan where many users mocked and celebrated her death, saying she deserved it and praising the killer while depicting Devins as a manipulative young woman. Devins had developed a small following online and was a 4chan user herself."*

QAnon was preceded by several similar anonymous 4chan posters, such as FBIAnon, HLIAnon (High-Level Insider), CIAAnon, and WH Insider Anon.[31] Although American in origin, there is now a considerable QAnon movement outside of the United States, particularly in Europe."*

Those are just a few highlights of what the Wiki has to say about the Chan Movement and why so many users on Twitch and Twitter tac the word "chan" to the end of their username.


If you want to read the full aticle to find out all the horrors of this horrendouse group of terrorists, here is the link:

* **[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QAnon](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QAnon)**


As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.


I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.


#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.


#I do not want any member of this terrorist orgination near my channel.


#The Chans are horrible people and I want nothing to do with any of them.


#Anyone found to be a supporter of ANY Chan is to be banned from my channel, even if they do not have "Chan" at the end of their username.


On a side note... do you remember in June 2016 when a group of crazy protestors showed up in my driveway chanting that my family was "Satan worshiping pedophile cannibals of the Scottish Mafia"? Well, it says on that Wiki:


>>>>*"QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against U.S. president Donald Trump, who is fighting the cabal."*

.

.


Does that me those people in my driveway that day were QAnon members?


Scary... that group included 2 Mormon Bishops, the Old Orchard Beach Town Manager, several motel owners from Old Orchard Beach, an excavation owner in Old Orchard Beach, and 2 Old Orchard Beach Town councillors... uhm... does that mean Old Orchard Beach is infested with QAnon members?


I think I am finally starting to understand the weird accusations that get tossed at me and my family... like being called "Scottish Mafia" when we are not, and being called a "BDSM Dominatrix" when I am not, and being called a "Satan Worshiper" when I am not, or being called "pedophiles' or "cannibals" when we are not.


I never understood these accusations or what the possible source could have been, but I had never heard of QAnon until 2 days ago when Twitter announced they banned 70,000 QAnon members off Twitter, following the terrorist attack in Washington D.C. earlier this week. 


The Tweet my mod was referencing, was a Tweet where I asked "What is QAnon? I never heard of it before."


Okay, so now understand WHERE they got the accusations from, they apparently say those things about everyone. But the question still stands: Why me? Why my family? Why my Twitch channel? How did I become a target for members of such bizarre, psychotically deraged terroist group? 


Also... it says QAnon started in October 2017... but those people who were in my yard, the first time they showed up was April 10, 2015, and they arrived again May 14, 2015, June 12, 2015, September 12, 2015, and each time they showed up the group was bigger. They continued to show up throughout 2016.


Each group was lead by a masked man who always kept his face hidden. The group members called him "Mark" and "Mark Who Needs No Last Name"... he was a tiny elderly man about 5'9" very skinny, and had unkept white hair. He always arrived driving a backhoe, which is the same backhoe that drove over my house August 8, 2013. He was the one seen shooting at me and my family in several livestreams. He was prone to showing up while I was livestreaming... I think he used my livestream schedual to determine if I was home, and I also think he was trying to "get his 15 minutes of fame" because he was always trying to get himself and his rifales on my webcams.


All of it was recorded via those livestreams *(yes, this is why several Witcher 3 VODs are not available for you to watch... it's the ones with the terrorist attacks on my family in them.)*, and all the video footage forwarded to local police, who in turn forwarded it to the FBI, and the FBI assigned Agent Andy Drewer to the case June 26, 2016.


All of that was a full 2 years before the October 2017 date in that article.



As of this discovery a new policy is now in place on my channel.. all mods are to **IMMEDIATLY BAN** any one and everyone they see with the word "Chan" at the end of their name, wither that user has ever visited my channel or not.


I want my mods to take ANY user they see on ANY channel ANYWHERE on Twitch to just ban those usernames from my channel as soon as they see them.

#From today forwards ALL USERNAMES ending in "Chan" are to be banned on sight.

#UPDATED to answer this question:

......................

*How is it you have never heard of 4chan or QAnon? I thought you were a dark webber? Everyone always talks about how you know all the darkest deepest sites on the internet. 4chan is like the biggest dark web website ever.*

......................

Uhm... WHO exactly says I know dark web websites and what exactly is a dark webber?

I've been on the internet since 1996, but I build websites, I don't visit websites. In my 25 years on the internet I've probably visited fewer than 100 websites total, if that many. In fact, I can list off the top of my head websites I visit and use:

* Amazon

* Blogger/BlogSpot (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* Deviantart (as a blog writer, I don't read/view content by others)

* eBay

* FaceBook

* FanFiction.Net (not visited since 2011)

* LinkedIn (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* LiveJournal (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* MySpace

* Nexus

* Pinterest


* SoapBox

* Squidoo (ceased to exist 2013)

* Twitch

* Twitter

* WordPress (as a blog writer, I don't read blogs by others)

* YouTube

* Zazzle

Wow... not only didn't reach 100, I didn't even reach 20.

I find it rather laughable that you or ANY ONE would think of me as someone who knows "dark web" web sites.

When exactly do you think I have time to browse the internet to even look for any website at all?

I work 80 to 120 hour weeks. 

I publish 4 novels a year, dozens of short stories a month, 2 to 3 non-fiction articles every day, paint on canvas with acrylic art for **[new merch products](https://www.zazzle.com/store/eelkat)** weekly, write for 12 blogs, and a manage/edit/write for 200 websites **[like this one](https://www.eelkat.com/)** which I built from the ground up and am the ONLY person managing/editing/writing for... AND I'm a retail merchandiser for HallMark travelling hundreds of miles a week to set up displays at WalMarts, CVS, Post Offices, WalGreens, and Khols all over New England. On top of all of that I make YouTube videos AND stream on Twitch.

So, explain to me WHEN you think it is that I have any free time for browsing the internet? 

I don't know who told you I was a "dark webber" or that I would know anything about "dark web" web sites, but, honey... check their username... did it say "Chan" at the end of their name? Yeah... THEY are a "dark webber" who visits "dark web" websites, not me, as can be clearly seen by them putting "Chan" at the end of their username.

You might want to reconsider where you get your information about me, who you get your information about me from, and fact check the source of the information you get about me.

The TL;DR: Typing Speed Chart
(For people not interested in the article and only looking for the chart...
I've moved the chart to the top of the page, so you no longer have to scroll for it:)



How long does it take a person to type 1,667 words?

If you write ___ words per minute you'll reach 1,667 words in:

  • 10 wpm > 166m (23/4 hrs)
  • 15 wpm > 111m (13/4hrs)
  • 20 wpm > 83m (1hr & 13m)
  • 25 wpm > 66 m (1hr & 6m)
  • 30 wpm > 56m (average for most people)
  • 35 wpm > 48m (average for most people)
  • 40 wpm > 42m
  • 45 wpm > 37m
  • 50 wpm > 33m (average range for most hobby writers)
  • 55 wpm > 30m (average range for most hobby writers)
  • 60 wpm > 28m (average range for most hobby writers)
  • 65 wpm > 26m
  • 70 wpm > 24m
  • 75 wpm > 22m  
  • 80 wpm > 21m (average range for most career authors & journalists/reporters)
  • 90 wpm > 19m  (average range for most career authors & journalists/reporters)
  • 100 wpm > 17m 
  • 125 wpm > 13m 
  • 150 wpm > 11m  (average for most office secretaries)
  • 175 wpm > 10m  (average for most office secretaries)
  • 190 wpm > 9m  
  • 200 wpm > 8m 
  • 210 wpm > 7m 
  • 225 wpm > 6m  (the Guinness World Record)

Remember...

The important thing is not how fast you type, but that you do warm up exercises before you start typing. Stretching your fingers and wrists.

Just like playing sports or a musical instrument, with daily/weekly practice over a period of several months, you will strengthen the muscles in your hands, wrists, and fingers, and be able to type both faster and for longer stretches of time.

If you have never typed before, take it slow and steady at the start and only time for 15 minutes, then take a 15 minute break. You don't want to pull a muscle in your hands, wrist, or fingers (I've done that 4 times now, each time had my arm in a splint for 12 weeks! So I know how much it hurts and how long it'll put your writing on hold!)

While winning NaNoWriMo is great, taking care of your health should come first.

An average of 10,000 NaNoWriMo members are hospitalized each November from

  • sprained wrists
  • torn hand and wrist muscles
  • tendon damage
  • pinched finger nerves
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • 1 in every 3 cases the damage results in PERMANENT loss of the use of the hand and a writing career ENDED FOREVER

Put your health first!

If anything starts hurting: STOP TYPING!

Do NOT push yourself beyond your limits!

Even if you are a professional writer, career author, reporter, etc, you still should never type for more the 45 minutes to a time. Always stop and take a 15 minute break. Get up and walk around. Stretch your legs, grab a snack, put ice packs on your hands and wrists.


How long does it take a person to type 50,000 words?

If you write ___ words per minute, you'll reach 50,000 words in:

  • 10 wpm > 207 days
  • 15 wpm > 138 days
  • 20 wpm > 103 days
  • 25 wpm > 82 days
  • 30 wpm > 70 days (average for most people)
  • 35 wpm > 60 days (average for most people)
  • 40 wpm > 52 days
  • 45 wpm > 47 days
  • 50 wpm > 41 days (average range for most hobby writers)
  • 55 wpm > 37 days (average range for most hobby writers)
  • 60 wpm > 35 days (average range for most hobby writers)
  • 65 wpm > 32 days
  • 70 wpm > 30 days
  • 75 wpm > 27 days  
  • 80 wpm > 26 days (average range for most career authors & journalists/reporters)
  • 90 wpm > 23 days  (average range for most career authors & journalists/reporters)
  • 100 wpm > 21 days 
  • 125 wpm > 16 days 
  • 150 wpm > 13 days  (average for most office secretaries)
  • 175 wpm > 12 days  (average for most office secretaries)
  • 190 wpm > 11 days  
  • 200 wpm > 10 days 

There have been tests done by doctors and scientists, and it is a medically proven fact that a person is not physically able to type at speeds of more than 200 wppm for more than 10 minutes to a time or for more than 3 of those 10 minute sessions a day. Therefore I have not included times above this figure.


Keep in mind that these numbers are mathematical averages and assume you are only writing for an hour or 2 or 3 a day.

You end times of how many days to reach 50k will be much less then those listed above if you sit and type for 75 wpm for 8 hours non stop with no break, for example.

The shortest feasible possible time to write 50,000 words, btw, is:

10 hours. 

Also the average person does not write consistently at the same speeds, often types very slow for the first hour, gaining speed in the second hour and reaching speed peek in the 3rd hour of each typing session.

Someone high on caffeine may write 100 wpm for several hours, then the next day be very tired and struggle to reach 15 wpm, then most days stay around 50 wpm. These types of fluctuations are normal and expected.

With all these things in mind, your own personal time vs speed to reach 50k may vary dramatically.


Remember...

The goal of NaNoWriMo is to motivate you to make an active effort at getting your novel out of your head and on paper.

Some days you may write 10,000 words, other days you may write 100 words. Both are okay and nothing to stress over.

Some days you may be very productive by doing research and spending hours in a local museum archive reading old diaries, but get 0 words written other then notes. This is fine.

Other days you may be sick or tired or have family responsibilities and get no writing done. Again, this is fine.

Don't get down on yourself for missing days.

Don't worry about days you don't reach 1,667 words.

It's okay if you don't reach 50k in 30 days.

Just because NaNoWriMo last 30 days, doesn't mean you have to stop writing on day 31. If you are serious about getting your novel published, you'll have to keep writing until you reach 120,000 anyways. Then you'll have to edit 4 or 5 times and revise 10 or 12 time, spending another 2 years polishing it into something you can submit to publishers.

In the end, how fast you typed the first draft is meaningless, so don't worry over that aspect and focus on writing the best story you can.

There is no right or wrong speed for typing. Take as much or as little time as you need. Never let anyone tell you, you are typing too slow or too fast. Don't try to type faster then is comfortable, just because someone said you were too slow and don't force yourself to slow down just because someone said you were going to fast.

The goal is to get your book written at a speed that is comfortable for you and will not hurt your hands, not get your book written at speeds right for someone else.

This chart is intended to help you calculate an expected time frame to help you plan your schedule, it is not intended to be used to try to compare yourself to others.


To write 50,000 words in 3 days:

From 2008 to 2012 I reached 50k words in 3 days every year, resulting in a lot of people asking how fast and how many hours a person has to type to reach 50,000 words in 3 days instead of 30...

  • 50,000/3=16,667 words per day
  • Most of the year I write 7,000 to 12,000 words a day as an everyday part of my writing career. It takes very little effort for me to push myself to a slightly higher word count of 17k.

Most years I strive to write 25,000 words on Day 1 of NaNoWriMo. Then write 15,000 words each on Day 2 and 3. Resulting in a total of 55,000 words written by the end of day 3.


Is it possible to reach 50,000 words on Day 1 of NaNoWriMo?

How fast do you have to type and for how many hours, to reach 50,000 words in one day?

Can the average person type 50,000 words in 1 day?

No.

Here's why:

The average person types 35 words per minute.

The average person is physically unable to type for more than 4 hours in a single 24 hour period (doing more causes sprained wrists and pulled finger muscles)

  • 35 wpm X 60m X 4hrs=8,400 words

This means that the average person (80% of all NaNoWriMo members) can expect to aim for as much as 8,400 words per day MAXIMUM.

While it is possible for the average person to reach 50k in 1 day, it is highly unlikely that they will be able to do so without suffering serious, possibly permanent damage to their hands. 

They could reasonably aim for writing 50,000 words in 1 week, however.

Can the average hobby writer type 50,000 words in 1 day?

No.

Here's why:

The average hobby writer (bloggers, fanfic writers, etc) who writes consistently 1 or 2 days a week, all year long, (about 15% of NaNoWriMo members), write at an average typing speed of 55 words per minute.

Because their finger and wrist muscles are conditioned for writing, they are better able to write for 8 hours a day, but are unlikely to be able to sustain momentum after 8 hours per 24 hour period.

  • 55 wpm X 60m X 8hrs=26,400 words

This means that the average hobby writer (15% of all NaNoWriMo members) can expect to aim for as much as 26,400 words per day MAXIMUM.

While it is possible for the average hobby writer to reach 50k in 1 day, it is highly unlikely that they will be able to do so without suffering serious, possibly permanent damage to their hands. 

They could reasonably aim for writing 50,000 words in 1 weekend (2 days), however.

And the 50k in 3 Days instead of 30 Challenge should not be too difficult for them.

Can the average professional/career writer type 50,000 words in 1 day?

Yes. 

Here's why:

The average career writer (daily newspaper reporters, freelancers writing 5 or more articles per week, authors who publish 4 or more novels per year, daily blogger, etc) who writes consistently 4 to 8 hours per day for 5 or  days a week, all year long, (about 5% of NaNoWriMo members), write at an average typing speed of 90 words per minute.

Because their finger and wrist muscles are conditioned for writing, they are better able to write for 12 or more hours a day, but are unlikely to be able to sustain momentum after 14 hours per 24 hour period. However, typing for 12 hour sessions requires full 48 hours of no typing at all, in between each 12 hour typing session, in order to avoid damage to your hands.

  • 90 wpm X 60m X 12hrs=64,800 words

This means that the average career writer (5% of all NaNoWriMo members) can expect to aim for as much as 64,800 words per day MAXIMUM.

While it is possible for the average career writer to reach 50k in 1 day, it is highly unlikely that they will be able to do so without suffering serious, possibly permanent damage to their hands, and they should wait at MINIMUM 3 days before using their hands again after doing so.


Every year a few hundred people reach 50,000 words on Day 1 of National Novel Writing Month, resulting in lots of questions, accusations, and skepticism as to whether or not they cheated.

Knowing that it was possible to reach 50,000 words in 3 days, because I had done it several times, I decide to join the Write 50,000 Words On Day 1 Challenge, to see, if it could be done and if so, how difficult was it to do. Was it possible that so many people were doing it each year?

The answer:

Yes.

It can be done.

But... it's extremely difficult, and while it is likely that members who are professional career authors can, do, and have reached 50k in one day. It is highly unlikely that many, in any, first time newbie writers have ever done it and likely did "cheat".

Interestingly, when I contacted many of the 50k in 1 day winners and asked what methods they used so that I could try them...

MOST, said they were using voice to text or speech to text software to dictate their stories and had not typed a single word.

The bulk of NaNoWriMo members are quick to classify the dictation method of writing as "cheating". I'm not one of them. Dictating is a valid way of writing your novel. 

However, I think comparing TYPING 50k in 1 day to DICTATING 50k in one day, to be like comparing a 1975 Honda Civic to a 2017 Rolls Royce Phantom - both will get you from point A to point B, but one gets you there with muscle cramps from being jammed into a small space you don't fit in, while the other had heated memory foam and butt massagers relaxing you on the way there.

  • Typing 50k in one day = VERY difficult to do, and requires week long rest periods between each 50k day.
  • Dictating 50k in one day = VERY easy to do and, heck, you can easily do it every day, and 100k days are not that difficult either.

So while both are valid methods of producing a first draft, they are 2 very different methods that have dramatically different output speeds and a dictator's output is going to be double or even triple the output of someone who is typing.

I find myself deeply disappointed to learn that the bulk of the winners of 50k of Day 1 of NaNoWriMo dictated those 50,000 words rather then writing them, as this discovery told me the likelihood of WRITING 50k in 1 day was slim, if the bulk of the 50k in 1 day winners with DICTATING and not WRITING 50k in 1 day.

In contacting the various HUNDREDS of 50k in 1 day winners to ask their methods, I found fewer than a dozen who had actually WRITTEN/TYPED and not used some sort of speech to text voice activated dictation software.

This lead me to want to test it out myself to see exactly how difficult it was to actually WRITE 50k in 1 day as opposed to dictating it.

One year (2012) I attempted to do 50,000 words in a single day, and stopped at 37,000 words because my wrists started hurting. 

The day I wrote 37,000 words on Day 1 of NaNoWriMo I was:

  • typing at an average of 91 wpm
  • typed for 8 hours steady
  • took 15 minute breaks every 45 minutes
  • slept for 3 days straight after
  • had to wear hand braces for the week following writing 37k in one day

I believe if I practiced, by spending September and October, constantly writing 25k to 30k words each of 2 to 3 days a week, I probably could get my hand muscles strengthened up enough to do a 50k on Day 1 challenge.

So, yes, I do believe it is possible to write 50,000 words in a single day. Difficult, but very much a possibility.

Will I ever try the 50k on Day 1 challenge again?

Not likely.

I did it before to see if I could, and at that point, my wrists were not strong enough to hold out. Had I done pre-NaNo warm up sprints in the days leading up to NaNo, I probably could have.

But seeing how my goal was to see if I could write 50k in 1 day, and I concluded that at that point I couldn't, but with practice I likely could, I therefore saw no reason to attempt the challenge again.


FINAL THOUGHT...

Every year, people who reach 50,000 words in anything fewer then 30 days, are faced with 10s of 10,000s of hate emails being sent to them calling them cheaters and liars and saying all manner of foul things. In many cases, these hate emails are sent to the members by the forum moderators of NaNoWriMo itself.

If you write more then 50,000 words in 30 days - DO NOT announce you have done so on the NaNoWriMo forums.

Prior to 2011 NaNoWriMo forums were modded by Chris Baty himself and he was on top of keeping the mods in line. Since he retired in 2011, the mod hostility towards members has increased. Since 2016 the FBI has been investigating The Offices of Letters & Light (the company that owns NaNoWriMo) after the deaths of multiple members, the bombing of multiple member homes, the flurry of death threats written by mods,

Since 2014:

  • 7 NaNoWriMo overachiever members have been murdered - in each case a NaNoWriMo forum mod was the primary suspect
  • 12 NaNoWriMo overachiever members have commit suicide - in each case a NaNoWriMo forum mod was the primary in harassing them to the point of suicide
  • 5 bombs have been built, destroying the homes and nearly killing overachiever NaNoWriMo members - in each case the FBI's primary suspect is a NaNoWriMo forum mod
  • 500 cats, dogs, and other pets, have been kidnapped, beheaded, and returned dissected to 140 families - in each case the family had a family member who was a NaNoWriMo overachiever - in each case a NaNoWriMo forum mod is the FBI's primary suspect of these horrific acts of terrorism and animal abuse

The advice of FBI Agent Andy Drewer who is heading the FBI investigation of these hate crimes and terrorist attacks by NaNoWriMo forum mods on overachiever members is this:

"If you want to write more than 50,000 words in 30 days, go ahead. Just don't tell anyone on the NaNoWriMo forum you have done so.It's the only way to ensure you do not become the next target."

If you have been harassed in ANY way, by a forum mod of NaNoWriMo, please report it to the FBI agent in charge of the case:

Have Information? 
Please Call FBI Agent 
Andy Drewer @ (207) 774-9322  

If you have witnessed other NaNoWriMo members being harassed by NaNoWriMo Forum mods, please report these instances as well.

Help make National Novel Writing Month a safe activity again. Do it before someone else dies.

Interviews About the FBI Investigation of NaNoWriMo































































































NaNoWriMo employee Kendra Silvermander, a member of the Ku Klux Klan, who claims to be a NaNoWriMo ML is wanted by the FBI for multiple terrorist attacks on local non-white & LGBTQ+ authors.

As a non-white person who lives with daily attacks by the Ku Klux Klan .... daily attacks meaning:

  • February 2003 bombed my doctor's office and killed him
  • May 2006 they put my dad in a coma
  • bombed my house in October 2006

Is NaNoWriMo: 
A Terrorist Organization?
Did You Know
The FBI Is Investigating NaNoWriMo
For Their Connection To & Support Of A Dangerous Domestic Terrorist Group?

Did you know National Novel Writing Month Has Come Out And Made A Public Statement Saying That They Are a Supporter Of 
The Ku Klux Klan?



Did you know, that the heads of National Novel Writing Month have put out an official statement regarding their Ku Klux Klan employee Kendra Silvermaner's building a bomb and trying to murder me by blowing up my house?

Offices of Letters & Lights spokesperson Heather Dudley said, "We fully support our MLs in all their actions. The ML is always right. In regards to this matter we have chosen to side with the ML." ~November 28, 2016

Uhm... Heather Dudley said that. She does know that means she is aiding and abetting an attempted murderer, who is wanted by the FBI, you know for attempted murder, right?

The owners of National Novel Writing Month, have REFUSED TO COOPERATE with the FBI agents who were assigned to this case and are knowingly protecting (and therefore aiding and abetting) a known felon who is wanted for multiple counts of attempted murder.

Does she realize that by saying this, she has put out there a public statement saying NaNoWriMo supports building house bombs?

Does she realize that by saying this, she has put out there a public statement saying NaNoWriMo supports cutting cats heads off and nailing them to doors?

Does she realize that by saying this, she has put out there a public statement saying NaNoWriMo supports authors killing authors?

Does she realize that by saying this, she has put out there a public statement saying NaNoWriMo supports domestic terrorism and has pledged allegiance to the Loyal White Knights of The Ku Klux Klan?

Does she realize that by saying this, she has put out there a public statement saying NaNoWriMo supports stalkers, cyberbullies, and trolls?

I do have to wonder, does founder Chris Baty know his company is issuing public statements declaring their allegiance to white supremacy hate groups, specifically the Ku Klux Klan? Or that Heather Dudley is protecting a known terrorist by refusing to release Kendra Silvermander's identity to the FBI?

Are the Offices of Letters & Lights even aware of the fact that one of their employees, Kendra Silvermander, is a member of the Ku Klux Klan, is wanted by the FBI for 11 years of stalking, cyber-bullying, harassment, animal abuse, terrorist attacks, bomb building, and multiple murder attempts? And that their spokesperson Heather Dudley has issued a statement saying that the Offices of Letters & Lights supports Kendra Silvermander in her terrorist activities?



NaNoWriMo employee Kendra Silvermander, a member of the Ku Klux Klan, who claims to be a NaNoWriMo ML is wanted by the FBI for multiple terrorist attacks on local non-white & LGBTQ+ authors.

As a non-white person who lives with daily attacks by the Ku Klux Klan .... daily attacks meaning:

  • February 2003 bombed my doctor's office and killed him
  • May 2006 they put my dad in a coma
  • bombed my house in October 2006
  • May 2010 cut my car in half
  • beheaded my cousin July 2013
  • drove a backhoe over my next house August 2013
  • September 2013 - put a bomb in my classroom at Southern Main Community College
  • beat my up leaving me paralyzed 5 month and crippled rest of my life in November 2013
  • filled my motorhome with 1,000s of gallons of feces April 2015
  • kidnapped my cats April 2015
  • returned my cats' heads May 2015; 10 cats currently unaccounted for
  • August 2015 a woman was beheaded in front of her 4 children, in Saco Shaw's supermarket, in the ice cream department, while trying to buy her children ice cream
  • November 2015 - put a bomb in my department at Scarborough WalMart
  • June 2016 - put another bomb in my department at Scarborough WalMart (it was WalMart who contacted the FBI and started the FBI investigation July 2016)
  • 2016 my tires were slashed on 7 different occasions between October and December
  • April 2017 put my dad in the hospital again, he almost died
  • May 2017 attacked and rallied at my mom's house - twice
  • August 13, 2017 - my birthday - murdered 73 pets

The Latest Attack By Old Orchard Beach's Renegade KKK Members Who Use Their Cars As Battering Ram Weapons, To Slam Into Me While Driving Home, Has Done Horrific Amounts of Damage To My Daily Driver:

The car which attacked me on the Ross Road, just outside of the entrance to the Blueberry Plains, was a fairly new model of a Honda minivan, color maroon/burgundy metallic.

As with the previous attackers, this car had no license plates on it.

The driver appeared to be a man, but could have been a woman. Was wearing a straw hat, pulled down over their face to conceal their features.

This is not the first time they have done this. This particular attack however has done several thousand in damages to my car.

It is unknown if this driver was armed, however it should be noted that previous attackers, were armed with illegal automatic rifles, and it is assumed this attacker likely was as well.

The passenger's side of the front bumper of their car has a large pink paint smear on it, from the pink paint on my car.

Do be aware that this group of domestic terrorists, (who call themselves "The Loyalist White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan") are wanted by the FBI and are considered to be heavily armed and extremely dangerous. Their attacks on the non-white, non-Christian, and LGBTQ residents of Old Orchard Beach are becoming more frequent and much bolder. Do NOT approach them if you see them, just call the local police and the FBI immediately and run as far away from range of their gun fire as possible.

Do keep in mind that this group of terrorists are the ones who blew up my house with a bomb October 18, 2006, beheaded my cousin July 2013, drove a backhoe over my next house August 8, 2013, beat me up on November 14, 2013 leaving me paralyzed 5 months and crippled for the rest of my life, filled my motorhome with thousands of gallons of feces April 10, 2015, kidnapped my cats and have been one at a time returning the heads of my cats.

They have done similar things to 140 other families in Old Orchard Beach. In the past 4 years they have kidnapped and beheaded more than 500 cats and dogs. They are also wanted in connection to the murders of 3 police officers and 30+ children, as well as the bombing of the First Care Health Clinic on Saco ave in 2003.

This group of terrorists are incredibly dangerous, if they approach you or attack you, flee from them as quickly as possible - they WILL KILL you. 

If you know who did this to my car, please call the FBI Agent in charge of the case to turn them in:

Since I got beaten up by this weird so-called author, November 14, 2013, still no clue who she is, but she left me paralyzed for 5 months, during which time she hacked my KBoards account, my NaNoWriMo account, my website, my FaceBook, my Twitter, and other places, pretending to be me and written horrible stuff via my accounts. Then she created 52 fake Amazon accounts and left 52 fake and completely identical 1 star reviews on every one of my books.

I was paralyzed 5 months, relearning to walk 18 months... and I was offline for a full 3 years, and had no clue this woman had taken over all my online accounts or had done any of these things, until 2015. :( .

I'm crippled for the rest of my life, on a cane with one leg useless, and only have the use of 1 hand now, and permanent damage to my spine.

I used to publish a novel a month... now because of this still unidentified Kboards member, I've got $3million in medical bills, a bomb also blew up my house so living in my car, can barely move, and am lucky if I can get 1 book typed up a year. So frustrating. 

It's been 4 years and I'm still in physical therapy, and it's a good day if I can stand up, let alone walk. Had to cancel the 2015-2018 book signing tour, and had to cancel all the monthly book releases from November 2013 to who knows when... still all canceled and we are closing in on 2018 now.

The Kboards hacker crushed my spine, my hip, my pelvis, and my knee. Tore up all the nerves and muscles. Got a $40million lawsuit waiting for when the FBI finally identifies who the Kboards hacker is.  FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation  agent's contact info is on my website if you have any info about who it was who hacked my Kboards account 2013 to 2015

They have done similar things to 140 other families in Old Orchard Beach. In the past 4 years they have kidnapped and beheaded more than 500 cats and dogs. They are also wanted in connection to the murders of 3 police officers and 30+ children, as well as the bombing of the First Care Health Clinic on Saco ave in 2003.

The Full Article:

I joined NaNoWriMo in 2004, went on to become the first "overachiever" averaging 200,000 words in 30 days, instead of the average 50,000 words. Since 2006, I have been receiving on average 5,000 to 20,000 emails a week from fellow writers every October, November, and December, emails asking me how I did it and if I could advice them on what to do so they can write 200k instead of 50k in 30 days too.

In 2006 I wrote The 13 Step Method to Writing, in answer to their requests. In 2007 that was expanded to website known as "EelKat's Guide To NaNoWriMo", from their the advice column for writers (Ask EelKat) was created. Today there are more than 6,000 articles answering questions writers have, not only about NaNoWriMo but every aspect of writing and publishing in general and thus was born in 2013 EelKat.com the one stop database for every article I've ever written on writing. EelKat's Guide to NaNoWriMo is the series of articles that started it all, and here they are:

You are reading page #5 of EelKat's Guide to NaNoWriMo. If you have just starting reading this, please go back to Page 1 to read this entire 50 page article from it's beginning.

"How long does it take to hit 1667 words? and 50k in one day - is it even possible? I think it depends on the quality you're going for. Rough-and-ready bunch of words on a page and a decent first-draft would likely have quite different time requirements wouldn't they? What do you think?"

Depends on my mood - when I'm angry I can depend on 750 every 10-15 mins, when I'm tired it could take an hour to do 1000 words, but most days I can plan on 750 words for every half hour (I try to take a quick 5 min break every 750 words so my hands and my bum don't wear out from all that typing and sitting)

Also you really don't need to worry about a tiny amount like 1,667 words, because it is actually possible to write the whole 50k in one day if you wanted to.It is possible, it's difficult, but it can be done. I tested it a few years back to see - I can write 750 word every 15 minutes, there are 1440 minutes in a day, which means that in theory if I wrote non stop for 24 hours I would have 72,000 words by the end of the day, but that's extreme for me because I am a very slow one handed typer, at an average of 32 to 37 words a minute or 440 words every 15 mins.

However an expert typist can range 75 to 120 words a minute which is 1,800 words every 15 minutes or 7,200 word per hour or 172,800 words a day. Figure in a 15 minute break each hour, and you got 54,000 words in 10 hours. And as it's possible to go 4 days without sleep (at least for me - I sleep once every 3 days during NaNo) you can keep on typing 24 hours straight for a total of no less than 81,000 words per day.

Here is how standards among typists breaks down:

Secretary jobs often require a typing speed of 75 words per minute (23 minutes for 1667 words or 11.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop)

50 words per minute is considered average for most authors (33 minutes for 1667 words or 16.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop)

30 to 40 is considered average for many non-professional typists (42 to 55 minutes for 1667 words or 21 to 27.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop)

20 to 30 is average for most people who did not take typing lessons (55 to 84 minutes for 1667 words or 27.5 to 42 hours to reach 50k typing none stop )

The world record is 216 words per minute (7 minutes for 1667 words or 3.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop), but that was timed by a group of people timing it, and I'll bet several folks here on NaNo beat that record every year, because I'm always seeing folks reaching 50k shout-outs with in the first 5 hours.

My average tends to be around 37 words per minute most of the year (46 minutes for 1667 words or 11.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop), but seems to be around 42 to 53 during NaNo (31 to 39 minutes for 1667 words or 11.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop), and there have been times when I was doing 75+ words per minute (22 minutes for 1667 words or 11.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop), and my top clocked speed was 1667 words in 19 minutes or 87 words per minute or 11.5 hours to reach 50k typing none stop (which means in theory, I could reach 50k I just 10 hours - less than half a day, if I just keep going once I got in my zone, however in practice I've never been able to reach 50k faster than 3 days.).

When you get in the zone you stop thinking and your fingers just start flying.

Basically, to make this work and be able to type out 50k within the first 3 days, you have to have EVERYTHING (characters, setting, plot, etc) all planned out ahead of time - we're talking months in advance- most folks who do the 50k day thing start planning their outlines in May or June. In about August they start practice speed typing, typing daily for 2 to 4 hour stretches, aiming at 1,000 words every 15mins. By November you know who is who where is where and who'll do what when. Everything is mapped out in your brain, and at exactly Midnight on Day 1 you start typing as fast as you can, not stopping, no breakfast, lunch, or dinner stopping only 5 mins every hour to get a drink and use the toilet then start typing again. Sometime around 9PM or 10PM they should be close to 50k.

Also most of the folks who try the 50k in one day have been doing NaNo for many, many years, and often have careers as full time writers who write huge word counts every day anyways. If you are new to typing it's really NOT recommended that you try a 50k day, because it's like any exercise, and required muscle warm ups and conditioning and practice for months and month, before your finger muscles are going to stand up to that kind of work out.

Know that there have been many newb typists drop out of NaNoWriMo on doctor orders after doing serious carpel damage to their hands during the first few days of NaNoWriMo. Every year there are a ton of threads on the forums saying: "Sorry, I won't be finishing the month my hand is in a cast, I tore a tendon in my thumb, I'm not allowed to type for at least 8 weeks, on doctor's orders.". This is a very serious injury that can cost you the use of your hand so don't take it lightly and don't jump into a 50k in one day goal unless you have spend several months working up to being ready for it. Same way you don't run track without warming up your leg muscles, don't type 50k in one day with out prepping your finger and wrist muscles!

Most years my best one day word count is somewhere between 13k and 17k, but 2 years ago I did 27k in one day and shocked myself because that was nearly double my previous record! My goal this year is to have at least 1 day where I beat that. I'm doing the 50kRDO (50k Ridiculous Day One - a challenge to write 50k on Nov 1st) and the 50kweekend all 4 weekends this year (25k on each Saturday and Sunday).

Hopefully, I will reach 50k on Nov 1st, and 25k each day of the 4 weekends. If I do, I'll end up with 200k, without doing anything typing on the weekdays! And than if I type 15k each day between the weekends, I'll end up with a monthly total of 500k. So I set my goal at 458k and see what happens.

I try this every year and so far have only ever had one actual 50k weekend where I even got close to 50k! LOL!, but I keep trying, someday I'll make it, maybe this year will be the year!) My end goal for total word count this year is to beat my record (238k), so I set my goal at 250k and if I reach that, I'm planning to try for 458k. I aim at 458k every year and every year I end the month between 80k to 238k, but I'm not letting that stop me from continue to set my goal at 458k, because I figure if I keep trying, someday I HAVE to reach it!

And then you must consider that 50k days are not that uncommon. NaNoWriMo was based on the Weekend Novel Contest, which allows you 2 days to write a 100k novel (keeping in mind that 50k is a novella NOT a full length novel) and is not an online contest. but a writing retreat where you actually get together with a live group and all sit together in the same room writing furiously. That contest has been running since the 1960s, currently costs about $300 to enter and has about 2 or 3 dozen winners every year.

But yeah, it's not only possible, but loads of folks do it every year. You just hae to realize that it does take a huge amount of pre-planning, lack of sleep, and being uniterupted by family/friends/pets/phone/TV/etc.

So, don't worry about getting to 1,667 a day, because I am a terribly slow typer (32 words a minute - most typers on NaNo average at least 50 words a minute, and someone with a secretary type training [which I did have, explaining why I can force myself to type this way if I have to] does 75 to 120 words a minute) averaging 32 words a minute - 440 words every 15 mins or 1,760 words every hour and I usually plan on writing 3 times a day (as soon as I wake up, on lunch break, and just before bed) so even a snail's pace typer like me rarely has a day of less than 5,280 words!

I'm one of the top overachievers every year for 6 years in a row, twice I've had the world's top word count, 8 times I've had the top word count for my state, I think a lot has to do with the author and past experience in writing. A new author, who is uncertain about their confidence or publishability, sure, they are going to be more careful and write slower, and try to write what they think publishers want. An experienced published author with a large readership and several years of writing, is going to know ahead of time what fans and publishers expect of him/her and will have no trouble speed typing a first draft that is publishable as is, simply because they have a lot of practice already.

Take myself for example:

I joined NaNoWriMo 2004. Failed. Tried again in 2005. Failed again. 2006, I discovered the Dares Thread and made up for both previous fails with a 183k win, and then won every year since at no less than 200k each year, the past few years reaching 250k. I've set my goal at 275k and 300k a couple of times but so far I always top out at 250k. Joined Script Frenzy the year it started (was that 2006 or 2007? I forget) Failed the first two Screnzies, then became the Screnzy ML and that got me motivated to never lose again. Done Camp NaNoWriMo twice, failed both times. Gee...what a trend...I've failed the first 2 times I've tried each contest! I guess that means I should win the next Camp? LOL!

Genre wise, I typically do a multi blend mix of horror, romance, sci-fi, a bit of fantasy, a lot of gore and splatter punk, and some random erotica/porn that shows up whenever I can't think of anything to write so I just start tossing characters in bed together for no reason. Technically what I write is called Dark Satire Gorn, but NaNo doesn't have that category so I usually change my novel genre setting every few days to reflect whatever the topic of the day is. ;)

Thanks to ancient dares from I think 2005, every NaNo I have ever done features the following: a demon possessed shovel that causes everyone who picks it up to go on a mindless killing spree, characters obsessed with eating shrimp dinners, vampires allergic to rancid yak butter, and the past 3 years have seen the addition of glittering vampires: vampires who wear pink sequined tuxedos!

Last year the Dare thread had me including talking pudding and herds of rampant penguins running down Main St, the year before that is was vampire chickens and alien abductions thwarted by pizza. Wow does it all come out a mess! But a fun mess. What will the Dares Thread have me writing this year?

Most NaNoers look at my style and shudder in horror saying: "But that stuff isn't publishable! No one is going to read that kind of insanity. Readers want serious writing." Do they? Are you sure? Okay, maybe some readers do, sure, but are they YOUR readers? If I tried to write a straight faced serious novel, I'd lose thousands of readers. Why? Because that's not my style, my fans know that's not my style, and what's more, they wouldn't be my fans if that was my style, because it's not the style THEY want to read.

Sure I'm an underground writer published in tiny Indie presses. Nope, I have never aimed at the mainstream or the big publishers. That's not my audience. Know your audience. Who are your readers? What do they read?

My readers? They want something that reads like Rocky Horror Picture Show dropped into Alice in Wonderland and whisked away on the USSEnterprise. No that mad capped horror fun feast in space in not a high demand style, no you won't get rich with it, no I'm not saying you have to write what I write. What I am saying is every writer is different, and every writer is going to have a unique set of readership, so every writer has a different audience to focus on.

That said, I'm also a NaNo Rebel. I DON'T WRITE NOVELS! I never have, not once in 18 contests!

For NaNo instead of writing a novel in 30 days, I typically write a couple of short stories a day, each ranging from 750 to 5,000 words, usually, based totally on the Dares Thread - I grab a dare, write a short story about it, grab another dare, write another short story, and so on, often using about 200 - 300 dares each November.

For Script Frenzy I write 10 ten page short plays instead of one 100 page one, again with the Dares Thread as my guide. As insane as my writing may get however, my goal for NaNo is always publication.

My 2008 NaNo autobiography was published as a book, as was my 2007 non-fiction NaNo "On Being Homeless" and most all of my short stories have been published in one form or another in a wide range of various places. The autobio (a 700 page book when published) and the non-fiction (a 250 page book when published) are the only 2 serious things I've ever written for NaNo, both drawing on real life experiences and written in 1st person diary format. Everything else (18 OLL contests worth of them) has been written by use of the Dares Thread, with no prior plotting or planning.

People always ask what I do for character creation in my stories, seeing as I use the Dares (and not pre planned plots) to write during NaNo (which is the secret to my super high word counts - no plot planning, just following the instructions of the next Dare on the list = lots and lots of saved time - every minute spent worrying about plot is a minute you are not writing!). So, I'll answer that part now so you don't have to ask.

Okay, I was a published author long before NaNo was ever thought of. I have a full time career as a writer, so I write on average 10,000 words a day about 250 days a year, for many years long before I joined NaNo, so the only difference between my November writing and the rest of the year, is my November writing is not preplanned and is allowed to run wild plot wise. In other words, if I wasn't doing NaNo I'd still be writing 250k word this month anyways, just like last month and the month before, and so on.

My first story, Friends Are Forever, a Tale of The Twighlight Manor, came out in 1978. Between then and 1994 I proceeded to write 200+ short stories, all inspired by the first one. In other words I write a long running serial, which currently contains about 75 fully developed characters, each having been used as a main character in their own story at least once.

The Twighlight Manor Series follows a single family through many generations starting in 1313 and ending in 2525.

The Twighlight Manor Series is not written in chronological order, meaning I could write about the members living in the 1600's today and the ones in the current era tomorrow than the ones in the 1800's the next day. The family are aliens who crash landed on earth. Folklores like Faeries and haunted houses are treated as real, so fantasy and horror creatures, though rare, can logically be in the stories.

That said, when I grab a dare out of the Dare Thread, I ask myself, which character would do this? Which character should this happen to? Etc, and then instantly drop that character into the dare and start writing. In other words, in order for you to do what I do and try to write 250k in 30 days, you really need to be working with a setting and characters that are well established far, far before November starts, so you don't have to do any kind of character or setting creation at all, you just grab random plots and start writing. If you spend Nov creating characters and settings, you'll never reach the mega high word counts. So, now you know, so you don't have to ask. O. K. ?

All that said, I very much write off the top of my head by the seat of my pants, nearly always writing at minimum 7,500 word a day and almost never edit any of it, these are being published AS THEY ARE these mad capped "rough drafts" are given a once over to check for spelling errors and then sent off to the publisher as is, and published without any changes at all.

Granted as I said I've been writing for near on 40 years and have been published for more than 30 years and have a large steady fan following always ready to buy everything I put out, so maybe it's harder for NaNoer with less experience to write high speed first drafts that are publishable from the get go. But to say it can't be done at all, that's a big no-no because I'm living proof that it can be done and is done often, year after year.

So, my point is, every writer is different. Some are going to write slow, others fast, others at mid speed. Some are going to write for an audience, others for themselves only. Some will be writing stuff that needs extensive editing others will publish it as it came out with no editing at all, and in the end, none of this is really going to affect the speed of typing, because your typing speed is what it is, regardless of errors and need for editing (both of which have to do with experience as a writer, not speed of typing).

Yeah, for some folks it's about speed and word count, and sure folks will look at what I just said and say of me, she's all about speed and word count. Nope. Actually, I'm not, because like I said, I also typed up 150k words last month and will do it again next month too.

Why?

Because that's what pays the bills. I am a full time professional career based writer and 150k words a month is just my normal average speed of writing. I can easily toss up 50k in a weekend if I wanted to, and I often do toss up 50k in a weekend several times a year, thus NaNo's 50k is not a challenge for me at all, writing 50k for me is just more of the same old same old and I'm in NaNo to give myself a challenge.

For me 50k is simple, 150k is typical, 200k is hard but still in my normal range, 250k is me pushing my limits, so 250k is my personal NaNo goal, because it drives me to step outside of my personal comfort zone and try to type just a little bit more than I normally would.

So, to say that 50k in a day is all about speed and word count may not be true for everyone here, because you don't know what they do for writing the rest of the year. NaNo is about challenging yourself.

If you don't write at all, then just reaching 10k in 30 days may be your goal, to heck with reaching 50k.

See? There are folks who just want to see if they can do it, and NaNo is a great way to test yourself.

And besides, not every one's goal is to get published. If your goal is not about publishing than there is no reason to worry about overall readability. Sure, my goal is publishability, and I personally would not be able to write 50k in one day and then publish it as is. I'm pretty certain I can do 50k in a day, based on what I've done in the past, however, as I said the most I've done in one day was 23k and in the end, that was an unpublishable load of crap. I discovered, yes I can write at speeds to make it to 50k, but I write crap when I write at that speed, so reaching 50k suddenly was no longer an important goal for me. Yes I can do it if I had to, but was it worth it? I decided that for me, I'd rather stick with less words per day and have it be publishable in the end, because if there's one thing I hate, it's editing! I know if I don't write it right the first time, I'm not going to go back and edit it, thus it will never get published, and then means that I just wasted my time writing those words, because to me it's pointless to write something if no one will ever read it.

My point is, NaNo is about personal goals. Do what you need to do, to reach your own goals, and don't worry about other writers' goals and motivations, don't worry about proving yourself to anyone here on NaNo, just prove yourself to yourself alone and be happy with that. That's my way of thinking, at least.

Besides anyone who does it to "show off" or "look good on the forums" will quickly be shot down by dozens and dozens of hate filled NaNoMails calling them every bad name under the sun, accusing them of cheating and lying, etc, etc, etc, so they'll learn fast that there's no glory in reaching 50k in a day or 100k in 30 days or 250k in 30 days or whatever their end count is. They'll end up feeling really bad about their win, if they only did it to prove themselves to others. If they did it for personal reasons then no amount of hate mail will rain on their parade. You got to do it for yourself.

But people can and do write 50,000 words in a single day and they do it often.

Consider this:

It takes 20mins to type 1667 words.

20mins x 30days is 600mins.

600mins / 60mins = 10hours to reach 50k.

If you sat down and typed non-stop you could finish your entire NaNo"Novel" in just 10 hours. Less than half a day.

Less than half a day.

You can write 50,000 words in fewer than 12 hours.

"I think it depends on the quality you're going for. Rough-and-ready bunch of words on a page and a decent first-draft would likely have quite different time requirements."

I disagree with this as well, I'm one of the top overachievers every year for 6 years in a row, twice I've had the world's top word count, 8 times I've had the top word count for my state, I think a lot has to do with the author and past experience in writing.

A new author, who is uncertain about their confidence or publishability, sure, they are going to be more careful and write slower, and try to write what they think publishers want.

An experienced published author with a large readership and several years of writing, is going to know ahead of time what fans and publishers expect of him/her and will have no trouble speed typing a first draft that is publishable as is, simply because they have a lot of practice already.
