    Yeah, try not to wait til the last day to verify. The site has been flaky in the past on that day due to the load. I think the verifier comes online Nov 25.

    I've got something that thinks it's a plot but it's wandering all over the place. My guys tend to spend a lot of the time in the pub as well (MC is a silent partner in one so he has a reason..).

    I'm over halfway done, and have the rest of the words in my head. Still need to transfer them to ones and zeroes though. LOL

    Had to go into town this morning so I took a break today. I might write some toward tomorrow's total a bit later though.

    Currently at 9827 and I'm SUCK! I've more or less hit a brick wall I think that's all I might have in me. Due dates and exams are looming closer, so I'm thinking it might be in my best interest to focus on that stuff now.

    I'm hoping to break the 50K either Monday or Tuesday. I've done some today but haven't typed it in yet.

    I didn't get any writing done yet. I felt physically ill all day. I finally am starting to feel a little better. Maybe I will get some writing done later tonight.

    EDIT: Okay, I didn't get any writing done yesterday, but I was on a roll today. I am up to 44,114 words.[face_party]

    I told my kids what count I was up to. The oldest said, "So do you have an outline yet?" I said, "No." He said, "So are you just writing random scenes with no structure connecting them together?"

    "Ummm yeah." :p

    Almost there - 49,600 today. I'm hoping to get to around 51k and validate tomorrow. Story isn't finished but I don't want to leave it too long since the site gets busy near the end.

    Made my 50k and validated this morning. Also got my winner goodies. As far as the verifier goes, Word 2010 said I had 50,315. After saving my novel as a .txt file and uploading to the verifier I had 50,370. So I gained a bit.

    I have 34k or so to write in the next three days! I really doubt I'll make it this year but I'm still going to try.
