    You can make it! You're almost perfectly on pace. 41,667 words at the end of the 25th would put you exactly on pace to hit 50,000 on the 30th. :)

    50,392 and validated. I'll try to work on it a little more in the last few days of the month, but I admit that I am glad to be done with it this year.

    1,842 words today for a total of 42,962 words. Not bad for spending an entire hour of the five I had to write scrambling for story ideas...

    Congratulations to Jedi_Lover and my kind of scum ! Woohoo! :D


    I have the same issue right now. It's hard to get myself to just...write, even if the ideas are half-baked or not as perfect as I want them to be.

    Totals updated. Congrats to those now wearing purple! Three days (and a bit) to go. Try not to wait til Nov 30 to validate - the site has been known to crash due to user overload..

    I followed your advice, Chyntuck, and managed to net a surprising 2,246 words today. Surprising because I had to go on a little bit of a research binge. Grand total for the month now sits at 45,208.

    Ooh, I'm glad that worked! Does that mean that we get a sequel to you-know-what?

    40,036 right now. Home stretch, I have lots more day to write after I (finally) sleep! :) I found my groove again with both stories so hopefully I will churn a good 2-3k more out today, then I'll be only a little bit behind.

    2,449 words for the 28th, bringing me up to a total of 47, 657. And in a bit of humor, my watched dinged right in the middle of the final word, in the middle of a sentence.

    I'm at 43,116 as of right now. My short term goal will be to get 46500 words by 11:59 tonight...if possible...only 6,884 left overall. Time to take a nap. :p

    You can do it, Volshe!

    2,138 words tonight, giving me a grand total of 49,795.

    Screw it, I can be tired tomorrow. I'm going for it tonight instead of tomorrow.

    Add 224 more words for a total of 50,019!

    Holy kriff, I did it!
