    Yep, I always seem to get stuck or to lose oomph somewhere between 10 and 15k. I'll prolly do a bit more on this year's, but I know I won't finish.

    Congrats to everyone who finished!

    I am officially done and validated with 70393 words.

    Rough draft is rough, but finished.

    Well done JediMara! That's a hefty word count right there.

    I just validated at 50k last night, but I'm probably some 10 pages from the actual end of the story, so I think I'll keep writing through the end of the month.

    Wow, that's an epic fanfic. I don't know what it is about, but I am hoping for L/M mush.

    Yay! You go! That's the spirit! =D=


    I'm at 45,531....almost there.
    Planned to get so much done this weekend, but I had to finish my papers to apply for an exchange program - due the 1st of December. I swear, I'll be so glad when this month is over.

    Made it to 52,035 today so I'm officially finished! Well, with NaNo. The story's nowhere near done so I'm just going to keep going with it. It's looking like it's going to be an epic...

    Since my fic has officially crawled to a complete halt, I'm tempted to just start posting it. Perhaps some reader commentary may help me get it back in gear. It may not be finished for NaNo, but I intend to finish this fic!

    Feh. I'm at just over 35k, and I have somewhere to be every night for the remaining three nights of NaNo. Fortunately, I get out of work pretty early and God help me, I am determined to write those 5k per day to get this sucker done on time. This is still totally doable, and gorram it, I am going to do it!

    Made it to 5k. [face_plain] I'm going to continue until I get it finished.

    Can you believe how much stuff gets in the way of writing? I mean, miraculously, I had three weekends with soccer tournaments, the one not occupied being Thanksgiving. Soccer helps me brainstorm, but I was too lazy to actually write it down.
    NaNo is definately not for the lazy.

    Always next year though [face_peace]

    47,167.... the end is neeeeeeearrrrr.
    *wipes off sweat* Oh goodness, I really hate this month. 2 more days to finish NaNo. 2 more days to finish my application paper. Midterm exam next week. Urgh.
    When do I learn the speech that I will need to hold tomorrow?

    Word counts updated.



    Congrats to Laj_Fett, SoA and Iverna who have won since the last word count update! =D=




    I'm around 34K and I know I'm not going to win... too much going on recently but that's okay. Last year I pushed way too hard to win and didn't write for months afterwards, I don't think that will happen this year. I'm on a roll and intend to keep it that way. :)

    I wrote on the plane all the way back home and finished my story at 56,916 words.

    And now it's time for pompoms. Go writers! You can make it to 50k, no matter how far behind you are! =D=
