    Happy wriggles for all these wonderful totals, especially for those who had a slow start at the beginning @};-

    Word counts have been updated.

    I've got no new words, but I'm going on a plane tomorrow and that usually stimulates my muse for some reason. We'll see what happens.

    With a 592-word vignette posted the other day, I’m now at 2982! It feels good to be back in a bit of a groove, and I hope I can keep it up. :)

    5040 words.

    Goal now achieved. Time to go away from my desk and make some huckleberry muffins, because (cue the L'oreal ad of old) I'm worth it.

    [face_party]Huzzah for meeting goals! (and for celebratory muffins!)

    My muse has been kinda a butt lately but I had been just working on random things I really don't know will ever see the light of day. BUUUUT this evening, inspiration hit me in the bath and I just wrote a 477 word fic and it's possibly one of my favourite/best fics I've written in a VERY long time. Anyways, I'm up to 6586.

    5835 words.

    Since I'm presently hand-writing (which allows me to write the roughest of prose, at least in theory), that count is a cautious estimate--so I may well have more words than that. It'll do.

    ETA: 6380 words.

    Word counts updated.

    I have a few more words, but not very many. There were video screens on the plane so I watched movies instead of writing on my trip, and there was NO time while I was there. I did however get a SW bunny which is exciting! Now let's see if the muse wants to write it! (Ideas haven't been problems, getting them into words is.)

    I have 31,516. I had today off and wrote all day. I can't even remember what I wrote. Just about anything I thought of I typed out. I am going to spend a month just editing it. I don't know if I will make it to 50K. I only have two more days off from now until the end of the challenge.

    I'm up to 8234. My muse is still doing the whole on/off thing on me. While it should be fairly easy for me to reach 10k in the next few days, I'm not sure how realistic it's going to be. I also don't know how much off this will see the light of day, but I'm having fun.

    No numbers from me and I’ve given up on my goal. Drafting and marking (60 assignments tonight and another 60ish tomorrow) is a killer of everything,

    Eugh, DRL had quite a few unexpected surprises for me this month. I still can't believe that it's the 26th already. When did that happen? :eek: :oops: 8-}

    I was only able to write a thousand words or so on a few different WIPs and drivels over the last week, and I'm up to 12,313 words now. That's still quite a ways away from my lofty 30k goal, and, unfortunately, work is not going to let me write at all over the next few days. So, that's probably it for me for the month. BUT, that's better than what I've managed to write in quite some time now, so I'm happy enough! I'm still going to try and chip away at my goal through December, because I have stories to tell, and I need to get cracking. ;)

    It's great to see all of the progress in this thread, though, both great and small. And for those who weren't able to be as productive as they may have wanted, I have a bit round of [:D] to offer. Here's to wordy muses for us all! [face_dancing]

    703 more words written on my current WIP, most in its final (epilogue) chapter, for 3685. Will I make 5000 by the 30th? Not likely, but with all that’s gone on this month I feel fortunate to have broken 2000. My main goal for the last few days of November is to finish this chapter (and this story).

    I am dying here. I am at 41466 words and only one day to go. I don't think I will make it. I mean, how many sex scenes can a story have? Answer: 14...there can be 14.

    My muse has gone missing over the past few days and tonight seemingly has been no different (I have ideas but no words are coming). I have a bunch of things to do tomorrow so my ending count will likely be 8,529. I'm kinda disappointed I didn't even make it half way to my goal, but I still wrote some stuff I'm very happy with.

    Almost there! Stay on target!

    EDIT: Got it. I had to go Rebel and write a couple more stories when my original story fell short.

    words.

    I wrote 65 of those in the last ten minutes, at the last minute, because I was thatclose to hitting 7000 words. It's 11:58 now, so that's that, and that's all for the month.
