    I am so doomed! I just can't seem to write much at all! :_|

    I'm at 12,221 words. I'm nervous I might not get it all done, too, especially since I start my new (and first!) job on Monday. Hopefully I can get it all in...

    Congrats on the job!

    When I did NaNo while working I was in IT. It was easy enough to have a Word document open getting some writing done. Then I'd just email it to my personal email and add it to the novel document later on. It's a great way of writing scenes..

    Thank you! I'm going to try and carry around a small notebook and pens in my apron incase things get slow enough for me to write (I'll be working at a bookstore), or even jot down a few notes while I'm eating lunch or on break. Fortunately, my mind writes even when I don't have paper or a computer. Unfortunately, this usually results in talking to myself. Either way, I should get some writing in.

    300... which may not seem like much, but totally is. :)

    Congrats! :D Just take a pad or something and write during breaks. Also, writing in your head is good too, but you might forget stuff. I'm sure you'll be fine though. :)

    Nope, I agree. Sometimes it's an achievement to write a handful of words.

    Edit: I forgot to say that I'm going to a write-in today! I missed it last week as I was at a wedding, but I always love spending the day in Starbucks with my laptop and some friends (if they turn up)! [face_dancing]

    Now at 22.500 words with writing Siri and Obi-Wan bickering and fighting in a factory. All are just scenes but the main plot is coming around nicely

    Have fun. There was a local write-in at a nearby town to me. I was thinking about going, but I didn't want to tell anybody I was writing SW fanfiction. I am on their NaNo Facebook page and they are all writing serious novels. I sort of felt embarrassed because I probably would be the oldest person there. I should be writing the great American novel detailing my decades of adventures, but no, I'm writing SW bootknocking. It is like 50 Shades of SW Gray.o_O

    How do you have time to draw AND write nearly 25K words? That is impressive. Nice drawing.

    I just broke 30K words today.[face_dancing]

    I probably broke 30K today as I did 10 handwritten pages. But since I haven't typed it in I'll do that tomorrow and update the word count then.

    5789 for me. Lost a lot of time this weekend, but I don't have much on for the next of the month so I still have hope.

    Aarrgghh!! I can't sleep and I'm awake enough to write and I actually know what I want to write too, but we have a power cut!

    edit: it's not a power cut, there's a burst pipe and it tripped the power to my room! :eek:

    I'm at 21,114 words now. I forgot to fill in my count one day, but so far this year I've managed to stay ahead of my target every day... well pleased with myself. I still haven't figured out the plot entirely, but I'm just kind of going with the flow and hoping it'll all sort out.

    I typed in my words from yesterday and I did break 30K - currently at 30,581. But I think I'm coming down with a cold - felt lousy last night and ran some errands this morning, then crashed on the bed after lunch. However, if I still feel that way tomorrow I'm going to give it to my MC - it's probably worth at least a few handwritten pages.

    At 13,905+ words. Probably could have written more, but had writers block. So I watched Dr. Who with my sister.
