Well, it hasn't been a full week since last I wrote, but I am very happy and had to report in. Today, I accomplished two things:
  1. I hit the 10k mark on NaNoWriMo
  2. I hit the 80k mark on my writing journey
Needless to say, I can barely talk right now. Body is thrumming with absolute, pure joy at making the 80k. I, as I've told you before, wasn't sure this would happen with everything I had to do, but somehow, some way, a story took shape, and I wrote it. I'm still a good 10k away from being completed, but the goal was not to complete the book by November 25th, but to get to 80k. Now, I want to try to finish the book by the 25th. I think I might be able to do it. As with NaNoWrimo, the goal is to write 1,667 words a day for 30 days. Today, I should have cleared the 5,001 mark, and right now, with having written a little over 4k today alone, I'm at 10,247. I plan to scale back a bit now, going for the 1,667 a day goal now that I'm a few days ahead. But if the inspiration hits me, I'll write more. OK, now I need to take a deep breath and carry on with life as normal--I'll wear the cheesy "proud of myself" smile for a few more hours!
