It looks like he added you, so it should show you a link back to his page now.  If not, check out mine. :)

So I've finally given up on my story for the day, about 1,200 short of my daily goal of 5k.  But still, I'm pretty happy with what I do have so far.
"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?"

Brain juices are not flowing tonight... going to try and crank out wordage anyway.

Go everyone!  Beyond drivel and distraction lies success!

I liked the first NaNo newsletter very much, as Mi'chelle can attest.

Work is progressing nicely, I think.

It was good, wasn't it?   :)  I always look forward to those pep-talks.

I have decided that while I technically could get to my word goal by the end of the night, sleep is a bigger priority. As long as I'm done with my third chapter by the end of Sunday, I'll consider myself on-schedule. :P

I wasn't sure I would do nanowrimo this year, but November came along and I seemed to have the time, so i started on it. But now I have a cold of doom. I can't decide if writing crap during a cold is worth it just to get a word count.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

Depends. Can you still have fun writing crap? :)

Eh. Personal opinion: Crap can be fixed later. When it comes to first drafts, I'm of the "get it written, not right" variety.

I may have too much ADD too be a good Nano participant. I keep jumping back and forth between two stories. I am only counting the words of the one, but I have trouble getting past 1,000 a day even in the best of times and now it is divided by two because I can't focus.
Oh well at least they are both growing. Very, very slowly.

:P

I just had to post my word count as of today.  I thought it was pretty cool, being a palendrome and all.

Wow, I love Levine. I guess that means I actually have to write since she is telling me to and all.... :P

The NaNo site is down. Can't update my word count. I'm at 36,865 words right now. I didn't get as much done as I had hoped I would over the weekend.

I've been waking up at 4 a.m. to get writing done before going to week and then scraping as much time as I can get on the weekends. I'm actually really enjoying it so far.

Also, my user name is squeebe on the site if anyone was curious.
