Sure, if I write 10,000 every day from now on. ::)

Okay, slightly less than that.

Congrats. :)

I'm getting there!  I broke the 35,000 mark last night, which left me about 2,500 words short of the pace.  I'm happy with that, given that I didn't even start until November 6th.  My output over the last few days leaves me confident that I will be able to finish by the end of the month. :)  This has really been an exhilerating experience for me!

Yeah, I don't even have 10k yet. I really don't see that changing between now and Sunday. Therefore I have failed NaNoWriMo. It's sad....I was honestly looking forward to this, and then I pretty much died before the month even really began.....I've lost almost all interest in the book, yet I've gained a lot of interest in an idea I conceived late last week....which puts my ideas up to 11, and my finished products still at 0...I'm horrible at this.

I'm at just over 10,000 right now. We'll see what happens between now and Sunday.

...I don't suppose those 3000 or so words I wrote for a short story revision count? No? Darn.

I think I started well, but then all hell broke loose. :( I haven't even cleared 10K.  :'(

I did, however, learn that 2K per day is possible for me (assuming all hell doesn't break loose. :P ) So overall a good experience for me; I just don't think I'll be able to get out 40K in a few days. Especially when I have places I need to be most of those days.  :-\

Heheh. I'm still planning on trying to churn out as much of those 40k words (okay, 38k) left as I can. I have places to be most of those days too... But Saturday should be good. Saturday I'm off. ::)

Wow I am really bookin' it! I hit upwards of 4000 today and I might not even have stopped yet!! I've still got almost 7000 words I need to write, so actually finishing all 50k is impossible, but hey. I am racing like a madman and it is so much fun!!

You still have two days.  You can totally do it in that time!
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"
