    I'm going away for the weekend so no chance to write! I do have an idea though, or at least the start of my novel. All I need is a character or something to start with and it's all good from there. Could've done with this last night though!

    Word counts updated! Awesome to see so many people off to a great start!


    (Except I didn't update my own. *facepalm* That's okay I plan on writing a little more tonight.)

    I'm currently at 2,410. I had hoped to write a little while at work today but my patients had other ideas. :(

    passed the 10 K today. Nice musings from Obi-Wan and Siri had me going and a man for the first time meeting the Jedi and being afraid that they will draft him into their ranks is great fun

    Past 10K yesterday. I still don't have a plot. I just write scenes and then try to find a plot to put them together. That is pretty much how I write all my stories. That is why they always seem weird and disjointed. o_O

    Make that 12,218 words with no plot.

    Well, I'm back at home now, but it's been a long weekend and I need more sleep, so I'll start writing tomorrow. Hopefully it won't take too long to catch up.

    Well, the weekend has been a horrible, horrible start for me. Managed to hurt my hand working around the house, so I haven't been able to type since Friday. Here's hoping I can catch up during the week.

    I hope you feel better soon. I am horrible at writing on the weekends. The kids are home and I have to feed them or they complain. LOL!

    I am up to 15,130 words.

    I am up to 6877. I wish I would hit a writing jag and knock out a couple extra thousand words but those don't seem to happen for me until the last week.

    Good luck everyone!!

    Thanks. It's a lot better now (hence why I'm able to write this), but for all of Saturday I could barely lift a fork with it. I avoided doing much of anything with it on Sunday to make sure I didn't make whatever happened worse. Unfortunately, that means I'm down a full weekend and I'm counting on those to pick up the slack from the week at work. Oh well, such is life.

    Ack! @DaenaBenjen42 - not started yet? Ouch! Yes; yes you must rectify this ;)

    Good luck!

    As for myself, I'm keeping it simple for the moment... trying to work writing back into my life, but sometimes the muse bites hard :)

    Word count for the month so far is over the bare minimum, which is what I'm aiming for, is at 10,944


    Congrats to everyone!! Keep plugging away and good luck this coming week! :)

    Remember, Remember the fifth of November...
    because you should be at 8,335 words! :p

    Word counts updated!

    I've had a hard few days at work so my word count has suffered, currently at 4,204. A migraine this morning didn't help either. We shall see how far I get this evening. 8-}

    I feel bad that it's Day 5 and I'm under 10,000 words. Then I remember, I spent Saturday playing in a tournament (and have the bruises to show for it) and spent Sunday playing Irish Fiddle. That being said, I'm just lucky I'm past 6,000 words.[face_relieved]
