    Just kidding. Congrats on the awesome word count!

    I can't hate anyone right now. I'm ahead at 21, 927 words, and I just added robots to my zombie novel. All is good.

    22k as of two minutes ago. With this hangover, it's more than likely I'll delete it all but still.
    I'm getting into the habit of all this.

    maybe not hate, but jealous for sure rwm lol. I get distracted so easily I'm at 13k, and that's good for me haha. but awesome word count, if I beat the 50k that early I'd see how far I could take the word count, so don't stop there, I challenge you to 100k!

    28k.

    I'm aiming for 150k on this story by December 31st - I wrote 8k in October, hoping for 75k in November and then the rest in December.
    SIGNATURE OF DEATH!!!

    It's pretty good at killing any WIP I list here, but I'm working on trying to revive my blog.

    Still behind at 12,034 words, but I had a good writing session today. Hoping to catch up, or at least trim the deficit, tomorrow.

    I am so far behind!

    I've written a total of 10 words in the last couple of days. I'm exhausted from hardly any sleep and stressful days. Really hoping to get back to my wriying either today or tomorrow...

    Sneak this into your book and you can add 39 words to your word count.

    But in all seriousness, I spent the day slacking off on everything just to catch up on sleep. You have plenty of time left in November for NaNo, but you need to take care of yourself first.

    And.... my word count is now 17,000. Over the last week I went from being 2k ahead to 4k behind...grr. At least now I'm back on schedule.
    On Hold --> YA Paranormal, 73k words
    Revising --> YA Fantasy, 95k words

    I agree. Somedays, you just need a day off and not to feel bad about it. If I hadn't taken yesterday off, I would have struggled through a 1000 words yesterday, and then felt the same way today and had the same problem, and it would have just kept going until I finally took a day off.

    Instead, today I feel rested and refreshed and ready to go. I ended up turning out 2,400.

    If you need the rest, take it.

    Haven't written since the 8th. Been sick. Thank goodness I got way ahead. Not behind until the quota for the 12th.

    I'm in awe of the numbers some people are achieving.

    It's Sunday night here and I've just pipped the 18000 post, so feeling pretty chuffed. Three days of parent conferences this week will definitely pose a challenge, as I can't think straight at the end of the day. I'll try and get ahead beforehand.

    I was terrified of nano, but I'm loving it.

    I had a late night writing sesh last night. On actual paper. So for now, I'm assuming I'm after 10K somewhere. But it was quite productive and I don't entirely loathe what I wrote. So all is good.

    Thanks! Appreciate the support.

    I've had some rough couple of days, but I have every intention to get back in the game tomorrow--after I've slept in, of course.

    3.1K written today.

    I must say, if not for my writing buddy, I think I would've given up by now. That 500-word tag game that she came up with really saved Nano for us!
