I've written 450 words so far. Since I need to write 1667 words a day to keep up, that means I only have 1217 left to go. Yeah! I'm on a roll.  ::)

Well, at least my morale is still high.  ;)

I managed to write about 1300 words last night before I went to bed since I was gunning to start, and aprehensive about my ability to meet my daily goal. It looks like I shouldn't have been, so far.

Now back to writing for me.

1,147 for me, which isn't bad considering how swamped I've been these last few days. Homework is the coolest.

Yesterday I wrote 1,570. I've written 200 so far today. So I'm still close to being on schedule, if I keep it up. I'm doing it in small increments, since my attention span is like nil.

And I have to keep reminding myself to just write and not worry about whether it's fabulous prose or not. When I do that, I tend to stop and edit and analyze and throw off my writing groove. None of that! I'll edit it in December, when I actually have a novel.

I thought I was going to totally fail, but I did 1900 words yesterday and I've done 2000 words today so far.

I thought so too, but so far I've written exactly 4124 words. I still need to write about a thousand more to keep up with my daily goal, but overall I was suprised at how easy it was, as well as how many words I can pump out in an hour (about 1100). However I've gotten a little less enthusiastic about on of my characters position right now, so that could pose some problems in the future.

I just hope I'll be able to pull even with JP. :)

End of Day 3: 14000. Didn't do much today. My friend is beating me at 20k. I can easily put on 6k tomorrow and another 10k on Sunday, though.

Wow, JP, you've totally left me in the dust. However, I'm on track with my personal goal (to do the bare minimum), so I can't complain.

End of Day 2 (yesterday): 3772 words.

Today I need to get my total word count to 5001. (I'm doing 1667 words a day.)

Hey, has anyone else had this happen? When I let the NaNoWriMo do the Word Count for me, it was 1,000 words less than what I got. Strange.

Yeah, I am going to have to really dig in next week, because this weekend I am going home, which means that I will be away from my computer the whole time, pretty much. On Sunday night I might be able to catch up a bit, but until then, I'm at a standstill.
