    I haven't been to a write-in in ages. I keep looking at the word sprint tool and thinking I should figure it out. Timing can be an issue (I saw one of my buddies had set a public sprint a little while ago, but it was while I was out), but they could be fun anyway.

    Still unwell, but still travelling fairly well. The 11th was a good day for me, and hopefully I can get some more in.

    Will finish Wednesday, if not tomorrow. It's been a fun exercise. I have no plans to do anything with it, other than let it sit in a virtual drawer in a cloud. But fun nonetheless.

    A pathetic weekend, to be sure. But earlier today I made up for it with 1035! I may write more later on. Fingers crossed!

    So my MCs are finally on their "first date" but not really a first date. Brody called it a date when he came across some guys harassing Mitch, so it's not really a date date. The way the conversation's going, I want to stab myself in the eye with a fork. SO NOT feeling it this year (sorry to be so vague but I have issues deeper than The Great Heart Attack Of '12 weighing down on me).

    Already wrote maybe 300-400 words longhand this morning. I'll know for sure when I type it up later. Even better, I think I now know how my story ends.

    50k+ and I'm done. All's well that has an open ending for an adorable main character who overcomes a lot of crap.

    Day 14: 1882 words (lately...okay...pretty much ever since November 8 or so, I've been getting a decent head start during the course of the day, making about half of par but then slow down until 10:00 and force myself to make the rest before the date rolls over. Yeah, I can reset my count if I need to, but I prefer not to.)

    TOTAL: 30,559

    Hit 50k this morning, and am now at 52,585. I'm writing in "chunks" and largely out of chronological order. Yes, I will have some mess to clean up at a later date, but it's helping to keep the words flowing And I'm still writing according to a rather thorough plan!

    As of today, my total word count is 53,827. Still a lot of writing/revising to do.

    Congrats, everyone. Keep up the good work. No matter your word count, as long as you're writing something, you're succeeding.

    Hit the 25k mark just a moment ago, though I plan on getting more done tonight. I'm past all the stuff I had a hard time with and finally to the part of the story I really want to tell, except...y'know....it turns out telling that part is also not easy! Who knew!?
