NaNoWriMo Progress.

Well, I'm not sure it's a whole lot of progress. As of this moment, I've got about 17,366 words done, which is a little more than 8,000 words behind where I'd like to be. Well, to be honest, I'd like to be done. The "fun" of starting something new has kinda worn thin once all ready - which means I had three days of no clue what to put in, so I "brainstormed" (read: typed not one damn word).
But I really like what I've done. I want this to be longer than 50,000 words, though. Which means that even if I've won NaNo, I (hopefully) won't have finished the story.

So the Divas are having a High Noon Challenge this weekend: write as much as possible between 6 PM tonight and noon on Sundaya. And in order to get back on track, I would need to write a little over 14,000 words by Sunday night. Which would almost double what I have.
Do I think that's possible? Um. Yes? Maybe? If I have enough caffeine?
Am I going to try? Absolutely.

So anyone who wants to is more than welcome to send me text messages tomorrow with little reminders like: "Put the book down! You're supposed to be writing, not reading!" and "Star Trek is NOT more important than writing this weekend!" Or "You can kiss your husband as much as you want on Sunday night! Go back to your laptop!"
Or you can be creative all on your own.

WOW - you're doing awesome. I'm stuck (brainstorming) at 7k plus...way behind where I'd like to be. This is my first year and I was hoping I'd do better (it's not over yet). But I've been slammed with work the past 8 days which was of no help but a great, and the kids are home so my time has certainly not been my own. Back at the library next week!
