NaNoWriMo Day 9, and Darwin Has a Posse.
Last year at a write-in I got a sticker that says “I'll Sleep in December.” That seems to be the case this year as well.
The novel is going well, I'm staying on top of my word count (mostly – last night I *had* to sleep so I got up at 4:00 this morning to make up yesterday's word count.) I got behind one day and catching up the next night was so gruelling that I swore I wouldn't let it happen again this month. What I really need is a buffer. Maybe this weekend. Of course I said that last weekend, and just barely squeaked by with the standard 1667 each day.
I'm also the ML for my city this year, which is kind of cool. It sounds like we'll have an actual turn-out at this weekend's write-in.
Clam IM'd the other night to say hi – it was great to talk to him, and I'm glad that everyone seems to be doing well on their own projects. *waves at all the Forward Motion folks* I looked up Zette on the NaNo site the other day and she already had 80k. The little minx.
In other news, I hope everyone has followed the Dover Panda Trial, and if you haven't, then by all means, get caught up here: http://www.pandasthumb.org . Which just goes to show that Darwin does indeed have a posse.
MSN is funny. People pop up online at all hours and one wonders if it's just their pc coming out of hibernation because the cat jumped on the desk or if they're actually online and working at stupid o'clock in the morning.
Okay. I'm stalling. I have another 1300 words to write before I go to work. Better get to it.
Cheers, everybody! I'll drop into FM for the TGIO celebrations. Keep writing!
