    Congrats all! While I am still reserved about the concept itself, writing under duress has got to be a bold thing to do! :)

    It was a lot easier when I had something dedicated to write. Now I'm just racing around for short story ideas. :(

    My dedicated story has gone kaput for a bit, I'm scrambling to find a way to continue it. On the plus side I beat 25,000 words!

    41,500. The last two days were a bit of a loss. Hoping for a big push today. My carpets are being cleaned so I had to be home to let them in/out, but I will be trapped for a couple of hours in my kitchen with a laptop. Not something I ever thought could make me excited, but here we are...

    Ouch on being trapped in the kitchen..any way of working the carpet cleaners into your story? That would net you a few words..

    30,534 as of now. I wrote most of the day's count (3,831) at 1-5 AM, so I'm extra ahead of my little schedule right now. :)

    43893 to finish out the day. Respectable, if not as high a total as I had hoped for.

    47,203 is the total as of today. I am fairly sure I can make it. I have ran out of ideas and I am now writing scenes that probably will never make it into the final draft.

    1,824 words today for a total of 41,120. I don't think that I'm going to be able to make it, but it was certainly fun (and productive) trying!
