I should be at 8335, I'm at 4193.
Behind, and I'm weaseling out and blaming it on the edits I'm working on with my publisher.
I've been doing this since 2001, and this is the best excuse for falling behind I've ever had the joy of using.
I intend of taking the Thanksgivnig week break from university to play catch up.
That being said I'm thoroughly enjoying the story I'm creating.

Man I hope I can get to my goal by tonight. I just passed 7,000 words. But hey, I ALWAYS feel like I'm behind. I really want to go for 2000 words a day from here on out. That means my goal for tonight would be 12,000. My synopsis holds a plot that I'm afraid I've already diverged from! Oh well, this is the one where I just write without an outline.
If you are doing the Write Nonfiction in November challenge, there's no need to worry about word count. Simply start and finish your project by month's end. Word count is up to you. Anyone out there doing WNFIN?
By the way, I'm not doing a November writing project because my project is WNFIN! I have to get 30 blog posts edited and published--and write a few myself--by month's end. Plus, I have to promote the blog, watch comments, and this year get a few teleseminars launched in conjunction with the challenge. I used to do a writing project at the same time...can't!
I am, however, still writing posts for my other two blogs and two examiner columns and finishing up line edits on my book, which will be released in April -- How to Blog a Book (Writer's Digest Books). So, I am writing, editing...working!
Good luck, ladies, and I'd love to know if you are writing nonfiction as part of WNFIN!
