Day 1: 3207.

Being a Sunday with nothing else planned made for good word. I started slow but then ramped up and knew exactly what was happening in the next chapter.

Day 2: 2593

Which was good, because, uh, got to work and found work had forgotten to give me, you know, work. So I had some extra time to write in the morning as well as during my normal breaks!

Day 2: 2073

I'm writing way too much exposition, but I suppose that beats leaning on spelling out numbers. :)

Not quite as much as I should have done today, but I got myself a little ahead the last couple days, so I'm ok with it.

Day 3: 2075
Day 4: 2074 (that's a little weird, right?)

Total: 6943

I'm cheating and picking up the project I started last NaNo, so my real total is more like 33k. I'm just happy to be writing again after not giving 2 flips about anything much these past several months. Good luck to everyone!

Day 4: 197 hand-written words

Total: 5201

I actually have slightly more, but not many. Less than 100, I believe. I wrote a few before work, but didn’t get there as early as I wanted, spent most of my lunch actually getting lunch (but ate while working at my desk). I didn’t update the NaNo site (which is odd for me) & I left my laptop there, so I’ll just count the 197 in my notebook.

Lower days, and tomorrow is likely to be the same, but that's what my buffer was for.
