Word Goal as of Nov. 21st:  35,000
NaNoWriMo novel words written: 8,700
Fan Fiction words written: 17,000+ since Nov. 1st, for a total of 27,700
Hours of Tax Classes attended: 25+
Piles of laundry currently on the family room floor: 4
Number of days I attempted to ignore my fan-fic and focus only on my novel: 7

It's all better now.  I've accepted the fact that I will not be completing NaNoWriMo this year.  I will however, be completing my Harry Potter fan-fic.  I hope all those fangirls appreciate my sacrifice.  :)

NaNoWriMo Continues

I'm not sure if writing at this pace is good for my story or not.  As with last year's NaNoWriMo, I'm afraid I might be overwriting the beginning of the story for fear of running out of words and will yet again, fail to get to the end.

Unlike last year's story, I do not have this one  worked out in my head yet, so I may either surprise myself, or run right into a dead end. 

And that's all for my blog tonight.  I still have to write 4800 words this weekend to catch up.  (NaNoWriMo=50,000 words in 30 days=1667 words a day)  If I can manage 1000 per 1/2 hour I'll only need 2 hours.  But there's a catch, I need breaks.  And I need ideas.
