    Congrats on winning, Flowerlady! :D

    I'm holding steady, finishing the night at 23,225. That's just over the count I needed for today in order to finish on time, though I hope to do even more tomorrow. Back up to my 3K-ish results? Yeah, that'd be nice. In any case, I'm on track according to my newly calculated schedule (currently at 2070 words/day), so I feel good about that.

    Broke 50K after being up all night.

    Now I've got to catch up on all the missed sleep I've accumulated doing this thing.

    Yay, emerald!


    I have four chapters left to finish and I have an absolutely horrible case of writer's block. I blame my excitement for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

    I did some words today but not enough to post a count. (I had to run some errands). I'll post up a count tomorrow.

    I wanted to stop about 1k sooner but my Muse kept shouting at me. [face_plain]
    I think she'll shut up for the night now. I wrote up to a nice bit of angst and confrontation that needs to be well thought-out. [face_mischief]

    I'm giving up for today at 32,614 words total. I just can't write any more today and I'm at the end of a chapter.

    Congrats to everyone who's gotten 50K!

    I hit a climatic scene today, and I managed to reach 29,330. I think I'll be able to catch up tomorrow, unless I have a nervous breakdown before or after my interview. :p

    I am up waaay to late considering I have to work tomorrow.

    But,

    I'm done, I'm done,

    Happy Dance...

    And the total is bagged and tagged at 115,600 words of gratuitous Star Wars-ness.

    I feel rather satisfied...but my thumbs hurt...trade-offs.

    33,485 words for now. I'm not sure I'll get any more done as I'm going out for a birthday dinner later and I need to get ready soonish.

    I think I am through with 37,952 today.
    Might add some, but todays chapter turned out to be short and I don't feel like starting on another.
    I have another NaNo writers meeting again tomorrow, so maybe I can write more again then.

    Made it to 37,202.

    So what's the weirdest thing you have in your novel? Mine so far is a priest doing an exorcism in the baggage area of an airport terminal.

    Did no one pick up on it being my birthday yesterday? :(

    I'm back in Starbucks today, and I'm all alone, again. I don't mind though as I got a coffee for £1 and I get free refills. With my awesome music I should be able to write loads. :D

    Didn't know it was your birthday. Happy belated birthday! I managed to write a bit more today but it's on paper so it will go in the word count tomorrow when I type it in.

    Thanks! :D

    I stopped earlier at 37,015 words, or there abouts. I got well over 3,500 words written today, but I didn't get to 40,000 like I was hoping to. Oh well, I'm still rather pleased with my progress. :)

    Hope your birthday was awesome, moosemousse. :D No better way to enter a new year of life than with noveling, right? (says the one with the barely pre-NaNo birthday :p )

    I went to a day of epic writing, and it was awesome! I was (as usual) way behind, but now I'm only a little bit behind. I wrote 9,938 words today, for a cumulative total of 32,540 words. And I won a NaNoWriMo coffee mug for having the best word war total! Though I came in second place overall, it was a ton of fun. I can't believe I was antisocial about these things for so long.

    Now, to prepare for Harry Potter viewing! :D

    Happy Belated Birthday Rachel!

    I had fallen behind and thanks to a NaNoWriMo All-Nighter I have gotten caught up and ahead. I broke 35k and am now sitting at 36,453 with 2.5 hours left in the all-nighter to go :).

    Made it to 39,840 today. I want to take Tuesday off to go see the new HP film so I'm trying to do extra words each day.
