Weekly Update x2

Two-thirds of the way through NaNo and we should all be at 33500 words (or thereabouts) by the end of today.  Of course, after last week's measly 6200 words, I'm behind.  (Along with a lot of other people, I'm guessing.)  This isn't a huge thing.  It seems like every NaNo, I get behind and end up spending the last few days of November hurrying to catch up.  We'll see how this year works out.

For the running tally - two weeks worth of numbers:

11/7 - 2190
11/8 - 2223
11/9 & 11/10 - Doughnuthole
11/11 - 1792
11/12-11/14 - Nada
11/15 - 2776
11/16 - Zilch
11/17 - 2623
11/18 - 2190
11/19 - 1484

Which leaves me at a rousing 26309 total.  That's 7031 short of the goal for the end of today.  I'm hoping to drop that to under 5000 words behind by the time I drag my butt to bed.   

On the upside, I dragged my story across the halfway point - both for NaNo and for the story as a whole.  With a projected 80K words for the book, I'm 60% finished.  48K!  Yay!  All things considered, not bad.  I don't know if I'll have this done by 11/30, but at least the end is in sight now. 

Keep your fingers crossed for me.

How are things going in your life?

    Heh, my verification word is "Catest."

    "You are the most catest of them all..."

    I need more sleep.
